My Favourite Foundation Brush
I'm known for on-off relationships with my make up brushes, but recently I've fallen into something serious with the BB cream brush (belgian link here) from H&M and I see us going way into the future together.
This so called BB cream brush is - controversially - not only for BB cream! I really enjoy using this for my foundation as well (oh, the difference...). It's a very dense brush with stiff, yet soft bristles. This is good because this way, it won't drag on your skin, but at the same time it's great for buffing in your foundation without leaving streaks.
I actually don't understand why this is called a BB cream brush - maybe because it doesn't look as a 'traditional' foundation brush? But regardless of all this, I can say I use this brush every single day, wash it occasionally and have not experienced shedding with it. The only weird thing it does is that some of it's bristles seem to grow... It's not true shedding because they are still locked in there, but they're just a bit longer than the rest of them.
This isn't a big deal for me, because it doesn't affect the application process in the slightest. It may only make it a little bit less aesthetically pleasing.
Price tag: only €6.99 and rather easy to come by if your H&M carries brushes (I get mine in the big one on the Meir in Antwerp - near the boerentoren). I also saw that they carried some limited edition versions for €1 extra, but I think the bristles of these ones are a bit more bendable so I'm a bit worried the won't blend as good...
Have you tried this brush before? Do you like it as much as I do?
