Make Up For Ever #150 Precision Blush Brush
Make Up For Ever #150 Precision Blush Brush

Make Up For Ever #150 Precision Blush Brush ($40.00) is supposed to be used for applying powder blush and sculpting products. The brush head is 26mm in length, 30mm in width, and 16mm in thickness. It has a pinched, metal ferrule, and a total brush length of 7 inches or 18 centimeters. The brush head is slightly angled and rounded, so it would work well for contouring and sculpting the cheeks or around the jaw and hair line. It is too large to work in smaller areas like around the nose. The bristles were soft, moved together nicely without splaying, and I didn’t experience any weird greasiness/oiliness with this brush. MAC 168 ($35) is fluffier, larger (narrower but longer). Sephora Pro Angled ($32) is longer and not quite as dense. Hakuhodo J511 ($33) is smaller and fluffier.

#152 Medium Highlighter Brush ($37.00) is a medium, rounded brush with a rounded, domed edge that’s circular all around. The brush head is 30mm in length, 25mm in width, and 25mm in thickness. It has a round, open metal ferrule and a total brush length of just over 7.75 inches or 17.5 centimeters. The handle is rather thick and rounded from right under the brush head to about halfway down the handle. It’s supposed to be a denser brush that can be used to highlight the face and body. It’s actually rather large for highlighting–I would probably want something about two-thirds the size of this for highlighting. This could work well for blending out highlighters, blushes, and so forth, and based on its shape, could also be used to apply liquid foundation as it can be buffed into the skin.

Unfortunately, no matter what positives this brush had, it was a greasy, oily brush, and no amount of washing seemed to extract the oiliness from it. I thought it would work best for applying foundation, but because the bristles were already sticking together, liquid foundation just made them stick together even more, so the finish was very, very streaky and I felt like a lot of product was wasted and trapped within the bristles. Hakuhodo 210 ($36) is similar but not as dense. MAC 109 ($32) is also similar but has a tendency to flare out a bit more.
