I love a new tool as much as the next makeup obsessive and when I saw MAC’s amazing new range of Oval Face Brushes I knew I would just have to try them.
While some may say it was coincidental, I would say it was fate that found me browsing on Amazon only to discover this little beauty that looks identical to MAC’s Oval 6 Brush and the best part, it was up for a fraction of the price. When I say fraction I mean teeny, tiny fraction as the MAC Oval 6 Brush is £34.50 and wait for it…. this little number cost me less than one pound, what an absolute bargain!
The bristles are so soft and it feels quite premium which is so surprising considering the price. I know it is probably not a patch on the MAC one and may not last me too long but I just wanted to try it to see if I liked the way it applies the foundation and then make a decision on whether or not I need the MAC one. I was intrigued to find out if they are just another makeup tool that are totally unnecessary or if they may be worth the hype.
So today I put it to the test and I love it! It is fantastic for applying foundation as it applies it super quick and doesn’t soak up a lot of product like some other applicators do. I put my foundation onto the brush and then applied it all over the face in circular motions to work the product into the skin and I’m really pleased with how it came out.
It is such a nice relaxing process thanks to the circular motions and the soft bristles and I imagine it would be great for your skin as it would encourage blood circulation which is what gives your skin that lovely fresh glow.
For the price I would say it is definitely one you must try, as for me I’m off to peruse Amazon to see what other sizes this brush comes in and I will of course report back, it’s a tough job but someone has got to do it!
Have you tried the MAC ones yet?
