Missha Professional Oval Makeup Brush Review

Missha Professional Oval Makeup Brush4

The Missha Professional Oval Makeup Brush is an Artis Brush dupe that is becoming increasingly popular in Korea at the moment. Etude House also has a new makeup brush like this entitled My Beauty Tool Secret Brush which I recently reviewed in a past post.

Artis Elite Makeup Brushes are mighty expensive but well worth your bucks in my opinion however, those seeking a cheaper, smaller dupe might just be interested the Missha Professional Oval Makeup Brush!

Let’s take a look!

Budget Friendly Brushes for Hair and Face from EcoTools

ecotools

I love a beauty budget deal but I don’t like forsaking quality for something cheaper. To many times I purchase a makeup or beauty product for a few dollars, get it home, and I’m disappointed with the performance.

So of course, like any good shopper, I’m always excited when I find a beauty product cheaper but also one that’s of excellent quality! So it goes with Ecotools! I remember the first post I did about Ecotools in 2008 and I also remember being a bit of a snob about makeup brushes at the time but quickly changing my mind when I realized how great their line of brushes was!

So for those who like a deal but don’t want for forsake quality here are some Budget Friendly Brushes for Hair and Face from EcoTools that I’ve been loving on recently.

hakuho-do + Sephora Pro Brush Collection for Fall 2015

hakuho-do Sephora Pro Brush

Those who want a taste of high Japanese makeup brushes will adore the newest collaboration between the legendary Hakuho-Do makeup brush craftsmen and Sephora. The hakuho-do + Sephora Pro Brush Collection for Fall 2015 is a collection of five synthetic makeup brushes created with a soft cashmere that a soft, fluffy texture. The brushes absorb less product than natural hair brushes which means more of your makeup ends up on your face or eyes versus being absorbed into the bristles of the brush you apply it with.

Sephora Pro Makeup Brush Collection is already teaming with incredible offerings that are par with some of the best mid and high range brushes I’ve had the pleasure of using. Many Sephora Pro Brushes are favorites of mine and made with sturdy handles, excellent quality bristles that are soft and shed free, and come in an extensive variety for face, eyes, and lips.

This first ever collaboration between Hakuho-do and Sephora results in a gorgeous selection of brushes that use a 200 year old manufacturing technique and high quality design materials!

The hakuho-do + Sephora Pro Brush Collection includes:

  • Kusabi Wedge Sloping Powder Brush (Kusabi): A large angled powder brush with a brand-new shape developed by the Sephora Pro team for the self-application of powder, bronzer, or for neck shading.
  • Otsubu Large Teardrop Pointed Powder Brush (Otsubu): A large pointed powder brush to apply powder, contour, or bronzer.
  • Kotsubu Small Teardrop Pointed Highlighter (Kotsubu): A revolutionary medium-point highlighter brush for precision contouring and highlighting.
  • Ougi Fan Cheek Brush (Ougi): A universal blush brush to apply blush, contour, or for a natural, no-makeup look.
  • Kusuriyubi Angled Concealer Brush (Kusuriyubi): A multitasking brush with angled shape for allover eye shadow, cream eye shadow, undereye concealer, and highlighting.

I love how East is meeting West lately in all the beauty and makeup offerings I’m seeing. The Eastern market is influencing the Western one in a major way lately and that’s a very exciting evolution in makeup.

In particular, the hakuho-do + Sephora Pro Brush Collection is an exciting launch that brings excellent Japanese craftsmanship to the world of Sephora!

The hakuho-do + Sephora Pro Brush Collection for Fall 2015 is available now at Sephora.com.
