MUFE Artisan Brushes

I'm sure you all have heard about Make Up For Ever, I've blogged about their HD makeup as well as Aqua collection some time ago..

Recently, they have launched a whole collection of make up brushes, hand-crafted by brush artisans. There are a total of 75 signature designs and they are made of 100% engineered fibers.

I know, people usually go for brushes made with natural hair, but engineered fibres can deliver a more precise and consistent make-results, not forgetting animal welfare. Isn't this better?

This is my first ever foundation brush!! To be honest, I find that the brush is pretty small compared to my big face, and I take more time applying foundation with this brush. Okay, I guess we'll have to consider the fact that I'm not used to applying foundation with a brush.. Anyway, I must admit that using a brush saves lots of product!

[My review might be kind of unfair for this brush] This dual ended brush will be a good buy for a professional, but I guess it will not be that useful for "commoners" like me. I usually use eyebrow pencil and eye brow mascara, so I have no use for one end since I don't use powder to do my brows, for now. As for the mascara brush end, it is indeed useful for combing out clumps, but it won't be much of an essential since most of my mascaras don't clump.

dsc05168_2

  • Use: Use to easily and delicately highlight the face and body. Its shape and soft fibers offer generous product collection for moderate to high payoff.

Yay this is my favourite brush out of the 5 reviewed in this blog post.. It is super duper soft with a rounded edge! I noticed that it is more for highlighting, but I love it as a blusher brush! It picks up powder and cream blush pretty well, and application is a breeze too. It somehow blends my blusher very naturally into my face make up. Now I have a perfect brush to use my HD cream brush!

304 Lip brush with cap

  • The brush also can be used for concealer touch-ups because Dany loves ingenious multipurpose tools.

  • Type of fibers: STRAIGHT.

  • Description: Rounded, dense brush with cap.

  • Use: Its density is used to apply any lip product quickly, as well as blending pencils and lipsticks. Putting the long cap at the end of the brush handle lengthens the brush size for better handling. Pouch friendly. Its cap protects fibers for hygienic application.

  • Pro Tip: Professional make-up artists concerned about the hygiene of their work tools also use this lip brush to apply concealers and other products used near the eyes.

This is also my first ever lip brush.. This is really good for applying lipstick, and super useful to achieve ombre lips. I personally find that applying lipstick onto my lips directly from the tube/crayon always end up too thick on my lips, so I definitely prefer applying bit by bit with a lip brush. Saves my lipstick too hehe!
