After trying my oval foundation brush (and loving it) I found myself in Primark, in Edinburgh, about to purchase some more, that was until I saw the Primark PS Pro foundation brush. I was so curious to know if this hand-sized paint brush could actually apply foundation that I just had to buy it.
For £4 I wasn’t going to complain if my little experiment didn’t work, and to be honest I didn’t have high hopes that it was going to be successful. However, you know that expression ‘don’t judge a book by its cover?’ Yep, my bad.
The only reason I doubted this foundation brush was because the bristles aren’t even and I thought this would mean an uneven and messy application. Surprisingly, I was wrong. Since the bristles are compact (not to mention super soft) I found the brush gave a flawless application.
Don’t get me wrong, it took a few attempts to get use to this foundation brush. Firstly, it’s a little awkward to hold, but once you get use to the ball handle it becomes pretty easy. Although I thought the shape and length of the bristles would be a problem, I actually found them to be quite helpful.
I found the long bristles to be good at applying the foundation around my nose area, as the tips are able to get right into the creases of my nose. The straight edges of the brush are great for defining my brows and blending my concealer that’s around my brows into my foundation.
I used the middle of the brush for the majority of my face and the little, stumpy bit for my jawline and chin, and to blend the foundation into my neck. It’s probably the strangest brush I’ve ever used, but it’s actually impressed me.
I use a liquid foundation and I can’t quite believe the results this brush gives. My foundation looks flawless, like my skin looks so smooth and line-free – definitely worth £4!
It may be inexpensive, but the quality it certainly there. I’ve used it multiple times now and the bristles are showing no signs of wear or falling out. Plus, it’s really easy to clean.
Have you tried this make-up brush before? Have you ever tried any brushes from Primark? Is there any make-up brushes you would recommend?
