Oriflame Professional Fan Powder Brush Review

Hello everyone,
Today I shall be reviewing the Oriflame Professional Fan Powder Brush which is next one in my review series of Oriflame Brushes. I have reviewed the Oriflame Blush Brush and their Foundation Brush which many of you  did like. All make up enthusiasts would agree with me how essential are make up brushes for a flawless and perfect make up look. Read on to know more what I think of this brush...





Product Description:
This fan shaped natural hair brush is specially designed to apply a sheer color wash or brushing away of excess powder. Lightly sweeps setting powder onto the skin for a soft, smooth effect.



Price: Rs. 229/-

Materials: Goat Hair, Aluminium, Wood.
It is made of goat hair with wooden handle but these are obtained from animals without causing any harm or death. Also Oriflame does not use any ingredients which could be derived from dead animals.

Availability: Through an Oriflame representative or here


The Fan brush comes in a sealed plastic wrapper  with the brush in it. Once the wrapper is thrown off you are left with no information whatsoever. The price and some basic information is printed on the cover. The color of the handle is black with some shimmer on it. It looks quite classy and professional. The brush is rounded at the top and is cream in color with a black border on the top.




I did not have a fan brush to be honest before I was sent this one from Oriflame along with few other brushes but I know that it is an essential brush in every girls make up vanity. A Fan Brush can be used for:

  • Applying blush or bronzer to the cheeks. In fact applying bronzer is a piece of cake with this brush.
  • It can be used to fan away any fall outs after doing your eye make up.
  • It can be used to apply highlighter right above the apples of your cheeks.

This one brush has multiple uses. The hair of the brush is nicely pinched at the bottom which holds it together very well.The bristles hair of this brush is quite soft and not scratchy but slightly scattered. In fact I gave this brush a go to apply bronzer and it did a good job. So hence forth I would use this brush to apply bronzer and highlighter as well. Now when I got this brush sadly it did shed 2 to 3 hair. Even after washing the brush one or two hair did shed. So I was disappointed. Also I prefer the brush to be a bit more dense, this one was not quite dense. Overall it is an ok brush, the quality definitely should be improved.

The Good:
Easily available through Oriflame representatives.
Available online.
The overall look of the brush is nice and professional.
Bristles are soft enough.
Multiple uses.

The not so Good:
Shedding.
Not dense enough - quality should be improved.


Rating: 2.8/5

The whole look and feel of the brush is quite nice. It looks professional too. As we may know make up brushes are quite expensive in India these are definitely reasonable and good for people who are new into make up.

I hope this review was helpful to all those reading. Please leave a comment below if you have tried a fan brush. Also new visitors on my blog can leave their blog links for me to check out.

Thank you for reading xoxo

  2. Great review I do not like the idea it shed us consumer like that the brush itself last and is durable.

  3. I like its fan like appearance and yes, certainly convenient to apply bronzer. But shedding? Suppose its meant to last for long time. I had the issue with an eye brush. Without realising, I went off for a function and later one, the small particle from it irritated and ruined my eye make up.
