Before I left for Tahoe this morning, I triple-checked to make sure that my Hourglass Foundation/Blush Brush No. 2 was snug as a bug in a rug in my makeup bag.
I wasn’t taking any chances…not with a tool as terrific as this.
A medium-sized face brush with a round, domed head and synthetic fibers made of high-grade Takelon, this $58 beast is one of my top tools because of something it doesn’t do, instead of something it does.
So…I know, $58 is a lot of tacos, but this brush never, ever streaks. It delivers a smooth, even, flawless finish every single time. If you’re looking for that airbrushed look, the No. 2 is your gal.
I think I may have mentioned it a few times before…
Okay, more than a few, LOL!
I this brush so much that it’s one of the products on my “can’t leave home without it” list, both because of how useful it is, and because it’s the only foundation brush I’ve ever used (and I’ve used quite a few) that never, ever sheds.
Never sheds nor streaks? That’s not bad.
I used the No. 2 throughout the summer to apply my foundation and tinted moisturizer, and not once did I have to pick bristles off my face.
And it’s capable of handling a lot more than moisturizers and liquid foundations.
Let’s see… I’ve also used it to apply setting powders, blushes and bronzers (both liquid and cream), powder foundations — and probably a few other products I’m currently forgetting.
Sometimes I’ll even use it as a buffing brush to smooth foundation, a blending brush to mellow out the edges when I apply blush, and as a cleanup tool to sweep away eyeshadow fallout beneath my eyes.
Seriously, it must have Intel inside because it’s a great multi-tasker.
Having a little too much fun with the Hourglass No. 2 Brush
On top of everything else, it’s also easy to clean, dries quickly and feels super soft against my skin.
If you’re interested but not at this price, you might keep it on your Sephora wish list for the next Friends & Family sale.
AVAILABILITY: Available now at Sephora stores and sephora.com
MAKEUP AND BEAUTY BLOG RATING: A+ (an expensive brush, but it’s one of the best tools I’ve ever used)
