I wanted to put a quick blog post together for you about a new range of make-up brushes that have recently been launched in Boots stores here in the UK. Japonesque aren't a very well known brand amongst consumers here but they offer really nice, high quality, professional brushes. I have been lucky enough to have been sent 3 of the face brushes from the collection and here are my thoughts:
Powder Brush: This brush has been designed for the application of powders such as blushes, bronzers, pressed and loose powders. I really, really like this brush, the head is packed full of soft bristles. I have been using this to apply my MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural and it does an amazing job. I previously used the MAC 150 and this is much softer. This is definitely my new favourite powder brush! This brush is priced at £29.95
Blush Brush: This brush is obviously designed for apply blush to your cheeks! I like this brush but would prefer it if it was slightly fuller. I usually use my MAC 129 brush to apply blush and the 129 is quite a bit fuller. The Japonesque brush is similar size and shape to the MAC 116 brush. This brush is great for blush but I prefer it for applying highlighter. This brush is priced at £24.
Angled Foundation Brush
Angled Foundation Brush: This is a really nice, smooth, full foundation brush. I wasn't sure that I would like the angled shape but it's actually great for achieving a more precise application. The brush applies and blends the foundation evenly and the tip is great for application around the eyes and nose. This brush is priced at £19.50
Overall, these brushes are great but very expensive. The travel sized handles are great and the brushes are top quality. As I am training to be a make-up artist I see brushes as an investment, I think that if you are really into make-up then they would make a great addition to your kit. You can purchase them from Boots
