New Flower Beauty Ultimate Makeup Brushes : Review : Pictures : Lip & Powder Brush
When I saw Flower Beauty post a picture of these new brushes I immediately went on the hunt to find them! Not finding much information on them online, I knew it had to go pick them up and try them out for myself.
I picked up the lip and powder brushes.
I skipped out on the angled liner brush because I have plenty of those.
I skipped out on the foundation brush because I have plenty of those too and I just simply do not enjoy using those types of brushes for foundation.
I also skipped out on the eyeshadow brush because 1) it was gigantic, I probably wouldn't even use it for eyeshadow, and 2) I already have a couple giant eyeshadow brushes anyway.
So now we're down to the two brushes I did pick up. I wanted the lip brush because I only have one other lip brush that I really don't find to be the best thing ever. And I also did not own a big ole powder brush, so I thought I'd check that one out too.
I have mixed feelings about these brushes.
I love Flower Beauty! Pretty much everything I have tried, I have absolutely fallen in love with. These ones, not so much.
The lip brush I enjoy more than the powder brush. The lip brush distributes product evenly and smoothly. However, I think I've already stained mine, there's no getting it out. I used a Velvetine from Lime Crime, which are super potent. Maybe not the best decision.
The powder brush is a little flimsy, which I understand is necessary to an extent in order to keep your other face makeup or foundation in tact when you're completing your makeup's finished touch of powder. But for the price, to me, I wanted this brush to have a little more something to it. They are both soft and easy to use, but I think the Coastal Scents 22 Piece Brush set that I purchased a couple of years ago is better quality and way more affordable on a brush-by-brush basis.
Have you seen these? I had to travel a bit to find them and they were sold-out online.
What do you think about the brushes, how are the other ones I didn't pick up?
Thanks for reading!
