Hello lovely ladies,
Today, I am reviewing a gorgeous makeup brush off my vanity. It is the Etude House My Beauty Tool Secret Brush 121 Skin. Read on to know how it fared for me.
Price: 848 PHP or 1150 INR approx.
Skin brush that helps easily smooth fluid foundation over the skin for a flawless finish.
My Experience with Etude House My Beauty Tool Secret Brush 121 Skin:
Oval makeup brushes like this have become so popular these days. This brush from the Korean brand Etude House looks like Artis brushes. So, I was super excited to try this out as it is a budget- friendly choice available. The brush comes packaged in a sturdy, transparent plastic case, having pink, white, and gold detailing. It’s very girly, which I love. There are some instructions on the back along with a couple of pictures printed on it and some Korean text, which I do not understand. But thankfully the product description and usage instructions are printed in English also.
The brush looks so fancy and luxurious. The golden brush is purely luxe. The length of the brush handle is perfect. It is neither too big nor too small. The brush handle bears its name on it. The shape of the brush is nice and ergonomically made. The size of the brush is small and I like the fact that it can easily cover hard to reach areas of the face, which a larger brush cannot do. I tried putting me under eye concealer with this one and it blended everything so seamlessly.
The brush has short bristles and they are extremely soft. The bristles are very densely packed and this brush is actually supposed to give an airbrushed finish. The instructions say to lightly dip the brush into the foundation and then sweep it in one direction. But, I prefer applying foundation in smaller strokes and patting motion. Since I have large skin pores I cannot work with my foundation is just one direction.
The brush was created for use with fluid foundations to create a more flawless, airbrushed finish. The brush comes with one more sponge attachment. This sets this brush apart from others. One can pop off the brush head and the mini sponge attachment. The sponge attachment is also very soft and bouncy, it is not too latexy and it gives nice results. But, I really find it difficult to detach the brush head and put the sponge attachment. It feels like either I will end up tearing my nails or breaking the brush handle.
It is very hard to detach the brush head from the base. Though the brush looks sturdy, it is actually very delicate. So, I rarely detach the brush head. I tried it with BB creams, liquid and cream foundations and it worked great with all of them. But, I find it little hard to blend and achieve a natural finish with thick and quick drying formulas. I would say it is good to get medium coverage. The brush does not drink up much product and makes my makeup base look smooth and natural. It does not leave streaks behind but sometimes I find some streaky finish at places which can be easily fixed using the sponge applicator.
It’s easy to wash the brush and sponge; just use a mild shampoo and let them dry. It takes slightly longer to dry out the brush completely. The bristles do not shed at all. I have washed it thrice; I did not observe any shedding of hair.
Overall, this is the most gorgeous makeup brush in my collection. I love the smooth and natural finish this brush gives.
