I’m totally a finger girl. Most everything in the base department gets blended on my face using my fingers. Concealer, primer, foundation, etc…it all gets smoothed on and blended out with my greatest tools, fingers.
Anyone else in the same boat?
You can have your brushes, sponges, and puffs…I got two fingers and they work just as great plus they didn’t cost me anything!
On occasion I can be tempted to whip out a foundation or a concealer brush. For example, I prob couldn’t get through my daily prep without the E.L.F. Studio Concealer Brush. Love that thing!
Recently, I decided to try out a new foundation and concealer brush from Coastal Scents.
Let’s take a look!
I picked these up on a whim during a sale but honestly even without a sale both are great deals. The Coastal Scents Large Domed Kabuki Brush is $14.95 and the Domed Mini Kabuki Brush is a mere $5.95. So honestly, neither will break the bank.
What can you use ’em for? How do they work? Any shedding?
Both are dense brushes and solidly made synthetic brushes. I was impressed with how soft they were and how much quality each displayed as I thought at this price plus combining the synthetic bristles that I would be forsaking some performance, but both perform fabulously.
I liked the domed design since they fit the contour of my face so nicely particularly the mini which fits under the eye area beautifully and allows concealer to be buffed into placed, giving an airbrushed finish. Same for the larger brush which fits the sides of my nose beautifully and allows for a quick and easy blend outward for cream or liquid foundations and BB Creams.
They both display just the right amount of firmness which I like without being too dense to move around my face. Both are excellent brushes and essential items if you normally apply foundation with tools, brushes, sponges, etc…those who prefer using fingers, like me, may make proper use of ’em as well and they might even convert you to using them full time and forsaking those fingers!
All around great purchase and mighty cheap as well if you’re looking to add some solid performing brushes to your train case.
Anyone try ’em?
