That I have a penchant for high quality makeup brushes probably amounts to a considerable understatement. I have amassed quite a collection over the years, and yet I continue to seek out interesting brushes that are worthy of owning. The Bésame Cosmetics Boudoir Short Hair Contour Brush was one such brush, and it had been sitting in my Sephora shopping cart for a period of time, and while I did purchase it, my choice was validated after hearing my friend, Kath the Fabzilla, extolling its virtues. First of all, it has a clear vintage charm juxtaposed with a modern sensibility that makes this an extraordinary collector's item, and therefore a perfect gift.
The vision of designer and cosmetic historian Gabriela Hernandez, Bésame recreates modern versions of classic luxury makeup. From color to formulation to packaging, each detail is painstakingly crafted and manufactured in the USA.
Bésame Cosmetics Boudoir Short Hair Contour Brush is a stunning brush that can be used to apply and blend powder and cream formulas, but I purchased it for the express purpose of applying and blending cream and liquid foundations, tinted moisturizers and BB and CC Creams. I wanted an ultra-soft brush with densely packed cruelty-free (synthetic) bristles that could give my makeup an airbrushed, flawless finish, and this brush does precisely that. It has a large brush head (5.25” L X 1” W X 1.25” D) that lends itself to covering large areas, and it glides across the skin effortlessly, deposits foundation efficiently, and blends seamlessly. It is exceedingly soft and feels magical against the skin, but the short bristles remain taut enough so as not to become floppy and inefficient. The serpentine shape of its handle, which was inspired by makeup brushes from the 1930s, is at once glamorous and nostalgic. It also is very comfortable in the hand, and it is easy to use and clean.
Bésame brushes are designed to bring back glamour and luxury to the process of creating your look- they make expert application effortless. Designed to buff powder or cream with faux hair, it blends color with ease and glides effortlessly onto the skin. The handle is designed to resemble brushes available to Hollywood makeup artist during the 1930s. It is easy to grasp, comfortable and well balanced in your hand. Wash hair only warm, soapy water as needed. Softest finest man made hair Luxurious boudoir brush for face and body and cruelty free.
