"A must-have for detailed work! Add a beautiful pop of shimmer in the tear duct or smolder out the lashline with the ultra-soft, pointed tip. This brush is also my favorite for pinpoint concealing hyperpigmentation on the skin."
"I LOVE how small yet fluffy this brush is! The shape is perfect for buffing out shadow on the lower lash line or adding a dusting of shimmer to the brow bone. This brush is also ideal for creating a blurred, popsicle stain lip by taking a cream and blending softly around the lip line."
"Truly my Swiss Army Knife brush! Perfect for a soft wash of dimension in the crease or, for packing pigment onto the lid with the paddle shape. I also like to use this brush to diffuse concealer and even strategically place loose setting powder. "
My current reigning ultimate lip brush! The angled edge and long synthetic filaments are perfect for smoothly filling a bold lip. This brush is also fantastic for graphic work on the eye and face! It effortlessly glides with no skipping."
"Ultimate precision! This brush is excellent for tightlining, creating brow hairs, and even an ultra-crisp lip liner with cream products. I love how unique this design is and find myself using it on nearly every face!"
"My top pick when I want to blur and diffuse! I can easily create soft washes of blush, bronzer, or contour with this domed fluffy shape. I love that I can use this brush easily with both cream and powder products in my kit!"
"My skin prep superstar! I love to use this luxuriously dense brush to work serums and oils onto the face and body!"
