I have been on the lookout for a foundation brush with a bigger brush head. The theory being that if I have a bigger brush head it will take less time to apply my makeup in the morning. I first saw a bigger foundation brush on a PixiWoo (MUA on YouTube) video and it was like a revelation to me, I NEEDED ONE in my kit/life.
I looked at M.A.C brushes, Sigma brushes and a plethora of others only to be let down by their sale of regular sized foundation brushes. Until that is, I walked into Cosmetics Plus (like a CVS for my US readers) and like a beacon of light the BYS Foundation Brush lit up the store with it’s largeness. I was so excited to find this I nearly did a cartwheel in the store.
To top it off the price was right too at a cheap $9.95!
I couldn’t wait to get home and try it out. I retired my EcoTools regular sized Foundation Brush (which has been shedding like nobody’s business, it had a good 1.5 year run) and for comparison’s sake I put them next to each other to check the size difference. The size difference was significant.
I have been using the BYS Foundation Brush for a little over one month and I really love it. It’s construction is sturdy, the brush hairs aren’t scratchy, they respond well to being cleaned weekly, and it truly does speed up application time (I have a big face). Cheap is definitely not nasty in this case. Who says you have to splurge on high end brushes when you can get great results on the cheap?
