When I think back to when I was younger my makeup brushes were limited... I basically used my fingers for foundation, puff pads for powder and everything else was applied with a sponge applicator! Skip forward to now and make up brushes are one of the most important parts of any look!
If you think of a builder he can only do as good of a job as his tools allow, much like applying make up, you can only get that perfect blend with a good brush.
I have always heard of Powder 'n' Pout but never tried any of their brushes so when I got a delivery just before Christmas, I was one very happy girl. I am a little bit addicted to make up brushes and always trying new ones so I was looking forward to see how these would compare to some of my favourites.
I was very kindly gifted 3 different brushes. The Fluffy Blender (P310), The Duo Crease (P245) and The Duo Tapered Powder (P210) This was a good mix to get a feel for the brand.
The Fluffy Blender (P310)
This brush is made of natural sable hair, with wooden handles featuring a double crimped nickle-plated brass ferrule. It is the perfect shape to get flawless blending and also because of its precise shape it is soo good at getting into to outer 'v'. The brush itself is super soft and the bristles are the perfect length. A lot of my other blending brushes have shorter bristles and this leads to me leaning harder, this brush made blending soo easy.
It is also a good length , you can hold it at the end to apply very little pressure. This is fast becoming one of my favourite brushes and I keep going back to it.
The Duo Crease (P245)
This brush is made with duo fibre technology, much like the fluffy blender it has a wooden handle featuring a double crimped nickle-plated brass ferrule. The duo fibre is basically instead of one type of bristle it is made with two, this makes blending a dream and it picks up just the right amount of product. Unlike a lot of my other eye brushes this is a super soft teardrop shape, which gets right up into the crease and makes applying different colours effortless.
Again the brush size is nice and long so easy to grip and feels nice and luxurious. You can also use this brush with liquids such as concealer.
The Duo Tapered Powder (P210)
This brush is again made with duo fibre technology, wooden handle and the same ferrule. I love the size of this brush, as it is big enough to sweep over the face but not that big that it makes doing your make up clumsy. Unlike the name suggests you can use it on a lot of different products not just powder. I used it with my foundation and the finish it gave was stunning. Because of the duo fibre's it doesn't overload the brush, so you don't have to worry about having to much product on your skin.
I also used the brush to apply my face powder and then cleaned it off to try applying my blusher, again it picked up just the right amount of product and gave a lovely sweep of colour to the face.
Out of all 3 brushes the Duo Tapered Powder is probably my favourite as it can be used with so many different products and it just gives my skin a lovely glow as it doesn't plaster the foundation on.
If you are on the look out for new brushes, I definitely would recommend trying Powder 'n' Pout. They have a full collection of brushes available on their website, which you can find HERE.
I have my eye on at least another 5 brushes so when I purchase them and try them out I will let you know what I think of them, but I am guessing I will love them just as much as I love these 3.
Lots of Love..
