Oriflame Professional Blending Brush Review
Today I shall be reviewing the Oriflame Professonal Blending brush. This is one of the brushes I did receive in the whole collection sent by Oriflame. Oriflame was primarily into skin care when they started out but later have also branched out into make up, hair color recently and they do also have a set of decent make up brushes. I have reviewed few in the last few days. Today its time to share my thoughts on what I think of this brush. Read on to know more...
What does Oriflame say about this brush:
This firm round brush is perfect for controlled eye shadow blending.This soft, natural-hair brush blends and softens eye shadow and smoothes colour transitions. Also ideal for applying powder to set concealer or foundation around the eye area.
Materials: Goat hair, Aluminium, Wood.
Price: Rs.149/- You can buy it from here
The brush comes in a clear plastic packaging with the price mentioned and basic stuff. The brush handle is nice and long and black in color with tiny shimmer particles making it attractive to look at and looks professional as well. You can easily carry it with you while travelling.
Now what I think of this brush is this is the cheapest and best option for a blending brush in the market. I know MAC 217 brush is the best but I will never spend that much on a blending brush. Also the white bristles make it dirty very soon. The bristles on the Oriflame brush are black in color which is good and is a bit fluffy. The brush can be used for:
- Applying powder eye shadow all over the lid.
- Good for blending the transition eye shadow to perfection as unblended shadows look pathetic.
- Can be used under the eyes to apply concealer and also set it with powder.
- Can be used to contour the nose and also apply concealer anywhere on the face.
The bristles are soft enough but not super soft still they are not scratchy. Those with hooded eyes may find the bristles huge but I do not and I think it works well. I also use it to dust powder over my lids and below the eyes to set the concealer. Once you wash the brush the bristles tend to fluff out and do not maintain the shape that is the only con but it is still worthwhile. I have had this brush since 2 years and it did not shed any hair so I would say it is a bargain for the price.
Easily available through an Oriflame representative.
Does a good job of blending eyeshadow.
Brush is multi purpose.
Inexpensive and affordable.
Did not shed any hair.
The not so Good:
The bristles widen over a period of time of use.
Wish they did not use animal hair at all.
For the given price I think it is an excellent brush and a must try. These brushes are hard to find in the affordable range among our Indian brands. Hence I highly recommend this brush to all.
