A while ago I encountered a blush I had problems blending out efficiently (Guerlain Peach Boy. That’s why it hasn’t been reviewed here, though now I have solved the problem you can expect that review pretty soon). Before I could blame it on the blush however, I picked up the Le Metier de Beaute Blush Brush when Zuneta was having a flash sale, just to see if it would make a difference.
My word, what a difference it makes! You know me: I hate to exaggerate, but I am really wondering how I ever applied blush or highlighter without this one!
Le Metier de Beaute Blush Brush comes in the brand’s minimalist black packaging with a velvet pouch. The handle is short and light, possibly aluminum. It is made with natural goat hair, and somehow tapered shape-wise. The bristles are firm enough not to be floppy, but soft enough to feel like a kitty’s paw against the skin.
I was actually a bit worried about the natural bristles grabbing way too much powder in one go, but luckily it turned out to do the job perfectly well. I have tried to use this brush with many different blushes, and even with the ones that are softer and more powdery, it doesn’t kick too much loose or pick too much up. I dab the brush in gently on its side, pat it on my cheek, and repeat if I need a little more. Don’t panic if it’s already a bit too much, as everything blends out effortlessly with this brush!
I have also been obsessed with using this brush for my go-to highlighter, Diorskin Nude Shimmer Instant Illuminating Powder. If I loved it, I am now entirely infatuated with it. I dip the tip of the brush in the compact, sweep it on the top of my cheekbones, and bang! You really don’t see the highlighter anymore; you see the prettiest glow that honestly nobody can tell comes from a highlighter. I have had many compliments recently about the nice radiance my skin has. Part of that could be the addition of some radiance-boosting skincare products to my regime (you will read about them in due time), but I do think a large part is actually this brush combined with an excellent highlighter! The synergy these two create is phenomenal!
Bottom line: I would definitely recommend Le Metier de Beaute Blush Brush. The only “downside” I can think of about this one is the price tag, but as I’ve always said, brushes are worth the investment. While cheaper brushes might perform OK for a couple of years, quality ones will perform incredibly well for years! If you haven’t found a good blush brush or even a highlighter brush, make sure you give this one a chance because the result certainly blew me away!
PS: From now till November 18th, Zuneta is offering free international shipping on all orders over 40 pounds. Enter code FREESHIPXMAS to take advantage of the early Christmas shopping opportunity, or treat yourself to some Le Metier de Beaute, Becca, or Rouge Bunny Rouge. Oh that reminds me, I still have to show you Le Metier de Beaute Tenne Creme Fresh Tint properly! Take it from me for the moment: after you try one of those, many cream blushes will simply seem overrated!
What is your go-to blush brush? What is your go-to highlighter brush (in my humble opinion it’s very difficult to find a good one)? Have you tried anything from Le Metier de Beaute?
