This one time at band camp…
You know a story is coming on dontcha?
I purchased a Bobbi Brown Concealer Palette from QVC a few years ago and I didn’t love it but the more I used it the more it grew on me until suddenly one day I found I couldn’t live without it. The palette came with a Bobbi Brown Dual End Concealer Brush. One side had a typical smallish concealer brush and the other had a blending brush which you could use to apply powder under your eyes to set concealer. Now at the time of my purchase I was suffering some serious dry eye syndrome and I was just discovering that indeed age was creeping up on me and placing powder anywhere near my eyes was a big no-no unless I wanted to age myself by 50 years. The Bobbi Brown Dual End Concealer Brush changed all of that. It became a staple item in my daily makeup regime, an absolute essential item, the I can’t live without you brush of choice…you get the point.
Tragedy struck earlier this year when I lost the brush.
OMG! Horror! It disappeared one day and was never to be found again. Some folks consoled me, told me go out and purchase a blending brush from MAC and use that but it was honestly never the same thing.
So I spent near $80 bucks on another Bobbi Brown Concealer Palette, which I didn’t need considering I had plenty in my other, just so I could get that beloved brush back.
Yes, it was worth that much.
For some odd reason Bobbi doesn’t sell this duo alone but she does have an eyeshadow blending brush that’s similar but not the same so splurging for another concealer palette was well worth the purchase to get back that beloved brush!
You, lucky enough, don’t have to go through the same drama of finding this brush because it’s available now in the Bobbi Brown Deluxe Mini-Brush Set for Holiday 2010.
There are ALOT of cheap brush sets around for the Holidays. Heck MAC’s Holiday Collection has several to choose from. But if you want quality and an awesome duo concealer brush that I personally can’t live without it, I’d say go with the Bobbi Brown Deluxe Mini Brush Set.
It’s $90 which could prove steep for some but a pretty damn nice investment in my humblest. Seriously, if you’re having problems getting powder to set your concealer right because of fine lines or dryness, you NEED the brush inside this set. It’s a bit longer, bristle wise than a typical shadow blending brush, a bit less dense, a little more floppy, and just right for gently sweeping powder under your eyes to set concealer or wake up tired eyes. I use it with my Skin Food Dark Circle Powder and the results are flawless!
I’m gushing I know but I generally love this brush and consider it a staple, HG (holy grail) beauty tool! Total must have in my opinion!
The set also includes a mini face blender, eye sweep, angle eye shadow, eye liner, and lip brush plus a emblem makeup bag for toting them around.
Broken down you’re looking at $15 per a brush a bit steep considering most brush sets range in the $5-$10 category however this is a high end brand so you have to take that into consideration also the brushes have the quality to back them up as well. I find Bobbi’s mini brushes are just as wonderful as her full size ones and honestly, I own more of her mini ones than her full size ones.
If you’re in the market for a good, solid brush set that includes one must have, you need this brush (‘ello concealer brush dream!) this is a fab set to indulge in.
The set is available exclusively at Neiman Marcus.

Disclaimer: I did not purchase this nor did I get it as a sample, a lovely friend gifted me this set and I love her for spoiling me
