Vega Professional Buffer Brush – Small Review

Hi everyone!

Today I am going to review a buffer brush from Vega. I always wanted the duo fibre MAC 187 brush which was way out of my budget. I searched for dupes for quite some time and then gave up completely. Recently, I spotted them online and since Vega is a trusted brand, I decided to pick this up. There is a larger version too. Read on to find out how it fared on me.

My experience with Vega Professional Buffer Brush – Small:

This is my first stippling brush. I wanted something for applying my foundation to have that airbrush kind of finish. The brush has black and white duo fibre. The white is now stained forever because of my foundation, although I have already washed it twice. I love the quality of hair on this brush. It is so so soft. It doesn’t poke your skin at all.

Since I bought a small brush, it takes a lot of time to do the foundation and being the impatient girl I am, I thought I would only do my blush with this. The pigments blend really well but again take a lot of time. So if you are like me and want to get ready in 10 minutes, then this is definitely not for you.For me, the bristles are working fine for blush application as of now.

Another main concern was the shedding. Initially when I had just bought it, I applied my bb cream with this one and to my horror I had so many small black hair (from the brush) stuck on my face along with my bb cream. It was so gross.  It does not shed that much anymore but still sheds quite a bit considering the price I paid.

I am very impressed that Vega came out with a budget (compared to MAC) option. There are not many stippling brushes in the Indian drugstore and I don’t like the flat foundation brushes somehow.

Will I repurchase Vega Professional Buffer Brush – Small?

Overall, I can’t decide If I like it or not. Maybe I will buy the larger one to see how that fares.

  1. You are right , there are hardly such options in the drugstore range for duo fibre stippling brushes. I got a powder brush from Vega – and it is surprisingly good – doesnt shed much even after washing , but I guess Vega is yet to come up with a good foundation brush. Try a beauty blender maybe?
