A Week of Favorites: Makeup brushes by it Cosmetics
28 Aug 2014
Day 4 of my Week of Favorites! The week goes by fast, huh? Today’s favorites are the makeup brushes I’ve been obsessed with lately. I’ve been pretty much only using my brushes by it Cosmetics for my face. I own different brands when it comes to makeup brushes, but recently I’ve only been grabbing for these ones. They are just SO soft, luxurious and give a really nice, flawless finish. Great quality brushes that are worth the investment! Below is an overview of the brushes I have, how they’re described and what I use them for.
My it Cosmetics brush family
Heavenly Luxe Plush Paddle Foundation Brush
This is one of the newest makeup brushes by it Cosmetics: it has a silver handle, in stead of a matte black one. I use it to apply sunscreen and primer. I don’t like using my fingers. I think this was a limited edition brush, because I can’t find it on it Cosmetics’ website or on QVC. Let me know if I’m wrong!
Heavenly Luxe Flat Top Buffing Foundation Brush
Designed with leading plastic surgeons, this ultra-dense, super soft brush will allow you to “buff” your skin to perfection! The flat, super plush head is 100% cruelty-free and is designed to let you quickly apply your foundation for a soft, airbrushed finish. This flat-topped brush contains over 88,000 high quality bristles that are great for even the most sensitive skin. source
This is an AMAZING brush for foundation! I use it to apply my liquid foundation and it goes on flawless. Very quick and easy to use. This brush retails for $48.
Heavenly Luxe Powder Brush
This 100% cruelty-free high quality synthetic brush is ultra-luxurious. The soft touch rubberized handle makes application easy and enjoyable. The ultra-high brush hair count makes for the most effective distribution of powder and an ultra-luxe feeling on the skin. source
After I apply my foundation, I use this brush to set it with powder. Because it’s a very large (and fluffy!) brush, I can quickly do this and go to the next step. Love it! This brush also retails for $48.
Dual Airbrush Foundation Concealer Brush
Luxurious Dual Powder and Micro-Powder Brush. One end powders large areas with flawless application, the micro-powder end perfectly powders smaller spaces and crevases such as the sides of the nose, space between your eyes and upper side bridge of your nose…the possibilities for flawless precision are limitless! 100% Synthetic, Cruelty-Free Hair. PETA Friendly. Pro-hygienic. source
This is one of my newest brushes. I use one end to apply my blush (it fits my cheeks perfectly) and the other end to set the concealer under my eyes. Flawless! Two brushes in one, but it still retails for $48.
French Boutique Blush Brush
Its unique handle is not only feminine and pretty; it is also easy to grip. This 100% cruelty-free high-quality brush is ultra-luxurious in feel and allows for flawless application. The ultra-plush brush hair count sets a new standard for quality and makes for the most effective distribution of blush! Plus the extremely soft bristles are great for even the most sensitive skin. source
This brush is meant for blush, but I use it to dust a little bit of highlighter on my cheekbones. I don’t like it for blush, because I don’t think it’s dense enough. Works great to lightly apply highlighter though! This brush retails for $34.50.
There you have it. My 5 (or 6, actually!) favorite makeup brushes for the face. You can find them on itcosmetics.com or on QVC.com (type in ‘it cosmetics’ in the search field). Have you ever tried brushes by this brand?
