Crown Brush GIVEAWAY

2013-12-15 14.15.42

One of the latest beauty products I received from iFabbo was this crown brush set in orange. And, to be honest, I didn’t need any more brushes when I was placing an order for it. That’s why today, instead of a detailed review (you can find plenty of those all over the blogosphere), I am doing a GIVEAWAY! I know there is someone out there who could use this set more than me!

Is Becca Really The One?

Today I am going to tell you a story of a $50 makeup brush ($49 + tax to be exact) that is going to change your life, and the way you apply makeup everyday. Becca brush is The One Perfecting Brush.

From start to finish, primer to powder, The One Perfecting Brush can be used with liquids, creams, powders and anything in between. Non-porous, high-quality goat hair allows product to sit on top of bristles rather than absorbing, ensuring a seamless application with no wasted product. It can be used effectively as a foundation brush, powder brush, contour brush, bronzer brush, stipple brush, blush brush, fan brush, concealer brush, kabuki, or sponge.

Size matters: Have you seen this thing? It’s huge! And makes the application of my favorite Cover Girl loose powder so much faster! I save about a minute every morning!

Know your how: Using this brush is no piece of cake, make sure to read the instructions and use each side as directed. This is the most important concept of this brush. It’s versatility allows you to narrow your brush collection to minimum, but you need to learn to use it! And use it correctly.

With foundation:
-Using the broad side of the brush, sweep foundation horizontally across forehead and then move to cheeks and chin.
-Finish by sweeping vertically down the nose using the narrow surface of the brush.

With highlighter: 
-Using the narrow surface of the brush, sweep illuminator down the tops of cheekbones and down the bridge of nose.

With mineral bronzing powder or contour enhancer: 
-Using the narrow surface of the brush, sweep brush under cheekbones, down sides of nose, and around temples.

With blush or beach tint: 
-Using the corner of the brush, buff into apples of cheeks using a circular motion and blend out.

The brush is great, beauty bloggers are swooning all over it on Twitter and Instagram. I got it through my iFabbo membership (READ: free), and was definitely impressed. The brush doesn’t shed, the bristles are natural, soft to the touch and pleasant against the skin. This product has definitely been though through and marketed the right way.

But I am going to be honest with you, has this brush substituted all my other brushes? No! I can’t use a brush to apply powder that I have just dipped into my foundation. Even if it’s all the way across on the other end of it. I have been using it to apply powder and create finishing touches. I will keep using Becca brush, and love it, and play with it. And I am ever so grateful I was able to try it out for free.

Happy Wednesday!
