Adesign sent me a plethora of their new brushes to take for a test run. After playing with their Dual Fiber and Natrafil brushes more I can tell you how truly impressed I am. There are so many makeup brushes available and I have collected and used hundreds over the years, so to see more hit the market you do think: 'What could possibly change or add to my kit?' - but I am a believer that in our creative industry there is always R&D which equates to new and fabulous products! You know what else is fabulous? The Adesign prices!!! Completely affordable! Stock up easily whether a pro, newbie or a beauty addict and as we pros believe - great tools are the true foundation of great makeup!
Love them all but so I am not providing you with a term paper on brushes - my two faves:
Made with Natrafil, $10.00 USD.
The Natrafil Contour - an effortless blend! I love that the hairs can pick up the shadow from your pan without the need of constantly adding more and the blend is so smooth. Actually - my regular contouring brush fave had me dipping back and forth from pan to eye to create the crease I wanted but with this one I didn't feel the need to keep returning to my pan for more colour - one dip was all I needed!
*Natrafil is a revolutionary fiber used for applying both liquid and dry based products. Designed to perform like high grade natural hair, this fiber delivers the ability to apply, blend and set a full range of color and skin products.
Made with grade 'A' goat hair & high grade synthetic, $15.00 USD!!!
The Finishing Contour - I use this brush to blend my fave cream bronzer with my fave peachy/pink blush topped off with a smidge of a highlight - a signature of mine that if you peruse my portfolio you know I love that look - a seamless, luminous finish.
Adesign really does great brushes! I have their Complexion Set too - great for the artist who has an anal retentive attention to skin/base detail which should be every artist but it's not... shame shame.
TIP: The pointed concealer brush makes an amazing lip brush!
NOTE: the Dual Fiber and Natrafil brushes were sent to me gratis for my review and opinion - the Complexion Set I purchased on my own. My opinions are honest - if I didn't truly like them I would tell you. Frankly, I am shocked at the reasonable prices for the amazing quality that you get in these brushes.
[ps: Christmas is around the corner.... great prezzie suggestion alert!]
