I am a bit of a bugger when it comes to using things for their intended purposes. I like to find new and inventive ways to use things, just to be a bit different and get the very best results. I like to use a thin angled foundation brush to apply setting powder under my eyes and along my brow bones rather than to apply foundation!
With that in mind, I’d like to tell you all about my new find, the perfect concealer brush from Japonesque!
The brush itself is marketed as an eye shadow crease brush, from the shorter handled travel line.
You can see from the shape of the brush that it is bulleted and not like most other concealer brushes…. That is what I love.
This brush can handle just about any kind of concealer you throw at it, liquid, gel, stick forms, the lot. I find the finer point perfect for really dabbing on small amounts of cover on to small areas and then conversely the angled sides give great application to larger areas.
I find the pointed tip of the brush also gives great reach and application to areas such as around the nostrils and in the inner corner of my eyes. It’s the perfect multi fit shape.
The brush is so versatile I always then run the tip in to my MAC MSFN to then set the concealer.
The brush quality itself is also really good. The ferrule is nice and strong and well glued, the bristles are tightly packed and feel lovely against the skin with no shedding. The handle, with it being classed as a short handled travel brush, is nice and thick yet compact. It is perfectly usable on a daily basis, none of that pathetically small useless tiny brush size here!
You can buy the Japonesque travel range in Boots and John Lewis. This brush is £12.75 in Boots and on offer, if you buy 1, you get the 2nd brush half price – brilliant!!
