Must-have Makeup Brushes
So I went and bought whole lot of brushes from Colorbar today. 😛 Here is the collection of my brushes as well as their usages.:) I have already used all of them once. Couldn’t resist. 😛
Colorbar Foundation Brush: Great brush. Applies foundation like a dream. Is soft, easy to use, blends well, and looks classy.
Colorbar Fan Brush (Rs 400) : The bristles are of fine quality. Great for soft dusting of blush/ bronzer on your cheeks. Works well to remove the fallen eye shadows or pigments underneath your eyes. Not a must have brush. I picked it up because I couldn’t resist its cuteness. 😛
Colorbar Angled Eyeshadow brush (Rs 400): A stiff bristles eyeshadow brush. Works excellent for gel eyeliner applications. I would mainly use it for lip liner application. Watch the usage video HERE
Colorbar Small Eyeshadow Brush (Rs 600): Super fine bristles, very soft and gives a good hold. Great for applying eye shadows, crease work, getting to the inner corner of eyes etc.
Colorbar Contour Brush (Rs 700): Works well for blush application, contouring, and applying highlighter. Didn’t like it much. It’s a bit scratchy but is fluffy and gives a great control..
Colorbar Eye Smudger (small) (Rs 600): I would call it a pencil brush. If you use kajals and liners, this is a must have brush for you. Works wonders for just the right amount of smudging. Could be used for a little crease work as well.Love it! 🙂
Here they are in their full sizes.
Some of the other brushes I love:
Vega Blush Brush( Max Rs 100-120): I have have this brush for almost an year now. Have washed it zillion times and it’s still the same. The bristles are fine and sopper dooper soft. A must-have brush.
Inglot Blending Brush (Rs 900): I really cannot do anything without this brush. It applies shadows, blends and it’s very rare that you can go wrong with this brush. It’s a small blending brush. It’s round, fluffy and soft.
Smudger (Rs 25-30 max): I use this brush almost every day. Smudging kajal, you see. 🙂
Powder Brush (Rs 500): I bought this brush almost an year ago from Kunchals. It’s the softest brush I have ever used. It is some no-brand brush. Am obsessed with it.
Lip Brush(Rs 20-25): It’s a super soft brush. I don’t apply lipstick with it but I brush it on my lips after I have already applied lipstick. It gives the soft blended look to my lips. I use it to apply lip glosses as well.
