The Artis Elite Mirror Oval 8 Brush ($65) is one of several, unique brushes that Artis produces. They might look familiar to you as not only are their many copycats of the brushes popping up on the market such as the Etude House My Beauty Tool Secret Brush 121 Skin, the Missha Professional Oval Makeup Brush, the Cailyn Cosmetics O! Wow Brush, the Besame Boudoir Long Hair Finishing Powder Brush, but also because Artis works with MAC a few years ago to create the Master Class Makeup Brushes.
Korea recently started producing a lot of different brushes like this as of late but it isn’t quite a trend that caught on in the US market. Artis actually cornered the market for these luxurious makeup brushes and as you can see Artis Brushes aren’t your traditional, typical makeup brush. I mean just looking at these you know there’s something special here. They sort of resemble an vintage style hair brush in appearance! I think if you presented the brush to someone who isn’t an avid makeup users and asked them what they would use it for they might not even consider as something that could be used on your face.
Aside from the visual difference of a regular makeup brushes, Artis brushes are also designed to be used different. These were developed to skim across your face without pulling at your skin. The skimming motion is an easy, smooth glide that breaks down powders and creams into a thinner consistency which results in a more flawless finish.
The Artis Elite Mirror Oval 8 Brush is a larger oval shaped makeup brush that liberally contains 1000’s of soft fibers. Artis creates their brushes with Cosmefibre which is an animal-free fiber. The texture and consistency of these fibers are what gives the Artis line of makeup brushes it’s easy glide across skin.
Artis Elite Mirror Oval 8 is one of the larger brushes the brand offers and was created for use with powder foundation, setting powder, or even to blend bronzer on the face or even the body.
If you’re looking to compare this brush to any of the brushes I listed above that would be impossible since it is larger and the Besame one, although larger, does not have the same oval shape which fits the contour of the face perfectly.
One of the things that the Oval 8 exceeds at is its ability to buff powder into skin for a very flawless, natural finish. I have drier skin so I tend to avoid setting powders and powder foundations. The Oval 8 actually allows me to use any and all powders. This brush has so many bristles and is so full it easily breaks down powders and buffs them into my skin for a smooth, soft, even application. You’ll never have any issue with a cakey finish or have powder adhering to drier or uneven areas because the bristles act to break down the powder and smooth it completely out.
The brush takes very, very minimal effort to use. A light touch is all you need to apply your makeup using the Artis line. It’s all about skimming the brush across your face gently. The fibre bundles are set into the brush in a position that allows the tips to be contentiously in contact with your skin during application which gives you that beautiful finish and ease of application.
There are plenty of duplication but none are as great as Artis. This brush is a superior way to apply powders and gives skin a flawless, gorgeous finish.
Very Muse Approved.
The Artis Elite Mirror Oval 8 Brush is well worth your money!
