I don’t know what it is about the last year or so, but I’ve become a makeup JUNKIE! I suppose it doesn’t hurt that Birchbox and Ipsy send amazing samples in their monthly boxes.
I recently purchased the Dior Airflash Foundation and was looking for the best way to apply it. (That review in another post) Last year I was obsessed with the Beauty Blender makeup sponge, still kinda am for the eye & nose area, but the foundation brushes that I have just weren’t cutting it. So upon a little investigating I came upon The Buffer Airbrush Finish Bamboo Foundation Brush by Tarte Cosmetics.
It’s claim is to flawlessly blend and buff any foundation for a perfectly airbrushed look.
So here goes….. I’M IN LOVE!!! Not only does it make quick work of applying your foundation, but it really does work with all types of foundation. It worked great with the Dior as expected, but when I used it with my liquid Jouer Luminizing Moisture Tint, I was hooked! Like a little kid, I had to test it out by doing one side at a time. I saw a marked difference between the two sides. My skin looked like I spent 30 minutes on it when in actuality it took me about 3. The brush blends flawlessly (ha, isn’t that what they promised?!?) I’ve been recommending it to everyone. It provides a great base for blushes and bronzers.
It is a fairly large brush, so I do recommend having another tool to get around the eye and nose area. I plan on purchasing their double ended camouflage brush since this one definitely delivered.
This lovely brush will run you $32.00. You can find it at Sephora or online at Tarte Cosmetics. If you sign up for Tarte’s emails, you’ll receive periodic coupons, so if you must wait for the deal, it’s worth the wait!
