Ever since foundation oval brushes popped up on my Instagram feed I’ve been dying to give them a go, however, I wasn’t paying the expensive price tag. Then Revolution Make Up came to the rescue with its affordable Pro Precision Oval Face Brush.
I’ve already tried a number of Revolution Make Up brushes, but when I saw this collection while wandering around Superdrug I got super excited. Although there was a selection of eyeshadow and contour brushes I went for the foundation brush, which was only £10.
I’m a sucker for pretty packaging and I was loving the black and rose gold combination – very luxe for something so affordable. The brush itself is designed to adapt to the shape of your face providing a flexible movement for a flawless application.
I’ve been using this brush for just over a month now and I absolutely love it, in fact, I actually prefer it over my Real Techniques foundation brush. It works similar to a buffing brush, however, since the bristles are softer and designed in a different way it allows to blend my foundation flawlessly.
Also since the bristles are angled differently I can blend my foundation into my neck seamlessly. Plus since using this brush I’ve never had any bristle lines either, which is something I always got with my previous brush.
The only downfall with this brush is it’s rather delicate. I posted a picture of this brush on my Instagram and someone told me that theirs had snapped when using it. I didn’t quite understand, but then I used it and I could feel the neck of the brush strain when I put pressure on my face during application.
So far it hasn’t snapped and it’s going strong, I just need to make sure I’m careful with it. I’ve also noticed that this brush washes a lot better than my other foundation brushes (I’m guessing it’s down to the type of bristle fibres?!)
I’m not quite sure if the oval eyeshadow brushes would work well because there not big and fluffy, but I definitely want to try out the contour oval brushes. I think they would chisel my cheeks amazingly!
Have you tried oval brushes before? How do you apply your foundation?
