WISESHE Cheek, Contour and Powder Brush, Available on Amazon.in , Rs 700
I always felt that there’s a dearth of good quality makeup brushes at affordable prices in India. It actually came in as a pleasant surprise when Anamika of wiseshe.com decided to launch her own line of brushes i this category and I received one of these to try out.
I have used this brush extensively in the last week, both on myself, and on others whilst I did their makeup, and obviously I have washed this brush numerous times and thus I will be sharing my views on this one with you guys today.
First things first, I absolutely love the way this brush looks and feels. If you’ve seen the NARS Yachiyo Kabuki Brush, and have yearned to own it, but got scared looking at the hefty price tag, you might just like this one a little bit more. The brush has a very modern look and contemporary appeal. Also, it is quite lightweight and has super soft synthetic bristles.
As mentioned above,, I have washed this brush multiple times and it has not shed at all.
The brush has been described to work well for both powder and cream based products.
My Experience with the WiseShe Cheek, Contour and Powder Brush
I had wanted a face brush for 2 major purposes for the longest time ever.
1, to set the under eye area
2, for applying my Colourpop Super Shock Cheek .
While do have a few face brushes, I always felt that they were way to dense and always picked up a lot of extra product and made the undereye area look too heavy andd patchy. And there comes in the WiseShe Cheek, Contour and Powder Brush. It picks up the right amount of powder and distributes it oh so evenly that there are no visible powder-y spots under the eyes.
If you guys follow me on Facebook, you’d also know that some time back I had posted a query about what’s the best way to apply the Colourpop Super Shock Cheek blushes. These blushes have a weird cream to powder kind of texture that made it almost impossible for me to use it with any brush. Suggestions varied from fingertips to blending sponges, and while blending sponges did the job well, I personally felt it was too much of a task to use a blending sponge for applying blush. I am glad that the WiseShe Blush came along because yes, I agree it really makes cream based product apply easily.
The brush has a tapered shape and well, there isn’t an iota of doubt that contouring and sculpting the face with this one is an absolute delight.
A very good thing about having synthetic bristles is that they don’t absorb any product and also diffuse it quite well on the surface of the skin.
Now, I am quite a minimalist when it comes to brushes and I believe in having a few that can multitask instead of having an army of brushes each serving only 1 particular purpose. With that being said, I think Anamika has done a fabulous job on these brushes because it is definitely a multi tasker and the way that it works, it is also a great brush for beginners because it allows greater control on the amount of product and thus a lesser probability of making mistakes for beginners. For makeup lovers, its a boon because you can use it with loose as well as compact powder and also cream products. And yes, powder contouring with this one is an absolute delight. It is right now available at a discounted price of Rs 550 at Amazon.in.
