Westman Atelier Baby Blender Brush Review

Purchased (Affiliate Links)

Westman Atelier Baby Blender Brush is a cruelty-free dome-shaped brush that Gucci created to use with her Baby Cheeks Blush Stick (which is a cream blush). She sought to make a synthetic brush that distributed color seamlessly, without any streaking whatsoever, and that blended to perfection. Handmade in Japan by, "the most prestigious brush maker in the world"– this brush features densely packed and extraordinarily soft nylon fibers and a sustainably sourced birch handle. The shorter handled brush is perfectly weighted and balanced for greater control when navigating the contours of the face.

I do not own a Westman Atelier Baby Cheeks Blush Stick, but I do have a collection of cream blushes and cream and powder highlighters that apply like a dream with this hardworking little brush. It picks up and deposits the perfect amount of pigment, and it seamlessly blends cream and powder products.
According to Westman Atelier,

A specialized blending brush and perfect match to Baby Cheeks blush. The rounded shape and compact bristles distribute cream color seamlessly and without streaking for a refined application on smaller areas of the face.
After multiple washes, this brush has yet to shed a single bristle.

- Artisan Design: Handmade in Kumano, Japan using traditional techniques from the most prestigious brush maker in the world. 

- Lacquered Handles: Crafted with the finest sustainable hardwood birch from a Forest Stewardship Council certified forest in Eastern Europe. 

- High Performance: Luxurious and durable. Finely tapered nylon fibers feel ultra-smooth with optimal density, softness and function. 

- Our brush-making process is cruelty-free.
Gucci's notes: 

I played around with Baby Blender's exact size and shape until I found the precise dimensions for a perfect blush application. Blend Baby Cheeks blush into the skin using small circles or tiny buffing strokes for the most natural flush. This brush can also be used to mix multiple shades for a uniquely customized color. Blush is a beautiful way to balance the proportions of the face. Keep color round on the apples to soften your angles. For more contour and definition, work upward along the cheekbones instead.
The Baby Blender Brush is about 4 3/4 inches long. Below you will see its diminutive scale compared to the Westman Atelier Blender Brush (Reviewed HERE).
Overall Assessment: I am just so happy that I purchased this brush, and I find myself reaching for it every single day! I really wish that I could say that my obsession with my two Westman Atelier brushes has quelled my desire to try more of Gucci's brushes, but it has not. I'm already plotting my purchases for the next Sephora sale.
