Tweezerman Contour Concealer Brush Review

Press Sample (Affiliate Links)

I have used Tweezerman products for as long as I can remember, and I was very excited about trying their recently launched line of makeup brushes. When Tweezerman sent me the Contour Concealer Brush I was thrilled because it was one of the standouts for me because of its versatile functionality and shape. I have plenty of highlighters and concealers, and simply couldn't wait to test it out.

This brush was specifically designed to:

Highlight and accentuate cheeks and around eyes with precision detail. The unique curve of this brush follows the natural contours of the face and fits perfectly into hard to reach areas like inner corners of eyes without causing irritation or dragging the skin. Follows natural contours of the face to layer color on evenly. Fits hard to reach areas naturally without irritation or drag.
The Contour Concealer Brush has Synthetic bristles made from DuPont Natrafil filaments, which are supposed to feel like--yet outperform-- animal hair brushes. I find that the Contour Concealer brush is quite soft against the skin, but I can tell that the bristles are synthetic. That is not a criticism of the brush, but more of an observation, and it doesn't change the fact that I am quite smitten with it.

The unique curved shape allows this handy little brush to effortlessly trace the contours of the face while depositing highlighter or concealer precisely where you want it, and not where you don't. In its capacity as an under eye concealer brush I find that it does an exemplary job getting into hard to reach areas such as the inner corners of my sensitive eyes, and without any irritation whatsoever. Furthermore, the curved shape allows one to work with great precision with little effort.
Tweezerman's Contour Concealer Brush has a nice curved shape that perfectly accommodates the natural curves of the face.
Tweezerman's Suggested Use & Care:

Use the brush vertically to sweep under eye primer/concealer below each eye—the shape of the brush is designed to fit and glide comfortably without irritating or dragging the delicate under eye skin.
For highlighting, apply highlighting concealer or powder to the brush head sparingly (you can add more as needed to subtly blend and build a radiant effect—the shape of the brush will naturally layer on color evenly).

Holding the brush horizontally and slightly at an angle, press the brush lightly to cheek, with the center hugging the apple of your cheekbone, smoothly sweep along the contour and  back towards the hairline to create height and a healthy looking  glow along the cheekbone.

Repeat before reloading the brush to blend thoroughly between layers (if more than one sweep is even required), you want to achieve a subtle, soft glow.

Brushes can easily be cleaned with a makeup remover or face wipe. Natrafil® filaments allow for easy and frequent cleaning without altering softness or performance. Air dry flat.

Pair with full coverage & long wear concealers, eye primers and setting powders.
Overall Assessment: Nice job, Tweezerman! Such a nice brush at a very reasonable price, no less! This is now my most reached for concealer brush. I'm now curious to try more brushes from the line.

  1. Hey Helen, this looks like a mini version of the new Estee Lauder foundation brush! It seems nifty! I'll have to wait and see if we'll get these here. I do love their tweezers!

    1. Hey Sunny! Definitely the same shape as the EL Foundation brush-- though the EL seems to have shorter bristles. It's definitely worth checking out if they launch the brushes in Belgium. I agree, their Tweezers are amazing! :-)

  2. This seems like it would be awesome for carving out the brows for a defined look. :-)

  3. For a long time I underestimated Tweezerman and how much better there tweezers work than cheap ones. Therefore, I will have to try this brush out and it seems super unique! Great post!
