My Must Have Face Brushes

It’s been a while since I did a post about brushes…  So, I think, it’s time a for a little update. I’ve decided to show you my most used face brushes whether it’s on myself or when I am doing someone’s makeup.

There are 6 that I absolutely have to have.

Let’s take a look:

Rouge Bunny Rouge Face Contour Brush 012 (Review)

This is my newest brush, and  my favourite for contouring. I have quite a few which I’ve collected over the years but they all are forgotten now, since I have this one. It has a perfect shape that goes right under the cheekbones. The bristles are firm but soft, which makes it a perfect contouring brush.

Japonesque 924 Travel Blush Brush (review)

Japonesque  rule the brush world, they are among the best. And their 924 Blush Brush is my favourite face brush that I own from them. It feels incredibly nice and soft on the skin and blends the product nicely. This is my blush brush of choice but I often use it for powder, too, as I am not a big fan of big powder brushes.

October is a Breast Cancer Awareness month and I did post about some beauty launches (Bobbi Brown, Origins, Elemis) that support the case on my Facebook page.

I also posted about the  Japonesque  sets that were released to support the case. There are five sets and I was given three of them to show you. When you purchase any of the following products or  kits, £1 will be donated to Breast Cancer Awareness Research.

I have:

Japonesque Pink Heated Mini Lash Curler (£12.50).

This is actually my favourite product. I did not have heated lush curlers, only shu uemura’s, so was a bit nervous to try. But there was no need to be afraid.  I use them after mascara and hold for several seconds. They do not ‘burn’ your lashes and it’s not really hot actually. And the results are great and long-lasting.

This is actually a great product to have and now I recommend it to my friends. Plus I think the price is great!

Japonesque Brush Set Touch Up Tube Pink (£16.95). You get a foundation brush, a lip brush, two eye detailers and blush/powder brush.

I am actually a huge fan of Japonesque brushes and I use them on myself and on other people, I think the quality is

Japonesque launched their products at HQhair.com and I was given three eye brushes and a pair  of eye lashes to show you.

The brushes that I have are: Pro Eye Detailer Brush – Medium (£14.75),  Pro Eye Shadow Crease Brush (£12.75) and Pro Eyeliner Brush (Flat), (£10.50). The lashes I have are called Extra Flair (£8.15).

I haven’t tried these (dramatic) eye lashes yet but  they look like a quality ones and come with a glue.

As for the brushes, here is how Japonesque suggest using their brushes:

Japonesque Safari Brushes Collection

Although I am not a fan of leopard print at all, I know that a lot of people love it. Plus I am a big fan of Japonesque (face brushes reviewed here) so I thought I’d show you their newest Safari brushes collection.

There is a ‘purr-ferct’ :) Safari Brush Set, in a microfibre case, which includes Powder Brush, Shadow Brush and Crease Brush. The set retails for £28.

And there is also a bronzer blush which retails for £19.50.  Ahh, if only I loved leopard print.

All brushes are made of synthetic bristles.  All the mentioned products are available from Boots.

The great news is that Japonesque is now available from HQhair.com who ship to different countries. There are not that many products available  but the brand plans to add more, yes, the well palettes, too.
