This review is about H&M Buffer and Blusher Brush.
A double-ended brush with one end for applying, blending and contouring with liquid and cream foundations and one end for applying powder, blushers and bronzers. Synthetic hair.
My Experience with H&M Buffer and Blusher Brush:
The brush comes in a transparent plastic zip-lock packaging. The packaging is very basic and I would not recommend reusing the cover. It will tear off after few uses and also the bristles feather out every time you pull it out of the packaging.
The brush itself is black and cream in color and the bristles are black in color. The ferrule is matte black and the handle is glossy cream. This is a double-sided brush on one side is the foundation brush and the other side is the powder brush. On the handle, one can see the brand logo in black. The overall look of it is quite basic.
The handle is sturdy and easy to work with. Over the period of time, the handle may look dull due to wear and tear and also the fact that its light color tends to get dirty even more.
But, as we all know, the most important part is the bristles.
The bristles are tightly packed and also slightly angled. The bristles also look shiny and quite synthetic. It screams that it is made of nylon or polyester. Just by touching the bristles, one can feel that it is not as soft as other normal brushes. The bristles feel not-so-soft on the skin. The buffer brush head is slightly angled.
I applied a few spots of foundation all over my face and neck and then used this brush to spread it all over. I felt the foundation looked little streaky and I did not like the finish of it. I had to use my fingers and a sponge to get the smooth finish. I think one can use fingers for better application.
The powder brush’s bristles are uneven and tweaking. It’s more loosely packed. The craftsmanship is not good at all. The bristles pick up a lot of powder product and can be a little too much at times. One has to tap off the extra product before moving on to the face. I also find that it’s quite big in size to apply blush.
The bristles feel not so soft on the face. The bristles do not get stained, which is good. They do shed slowly, but steadily. Since it is synthetic, it is easy to maintain. I just wash it with some shampoo and air dry it. One can use this as a replacement brush for a day or two but not for long term.
