As mentioned previously I bought a tonne of Makeup Revolution products including this contour brush. I added this cart solely so I could get free shipping and because I am of the mentality that you can never have enough makeup brushes. I wasn't that excited about it but I wanted to share my thoughts with you guys anyway.
I have had this brush for ages now, and wanted to share my opinion on it as I know Makeup Revolution are releasing a new brush kit (9 Piece Amazing Brush Collection - £20). It might be helpful to know about some of their other brushes so you can assess quality etc. before purchasing. It has a black handle, synthetic bristles and looks very nice. I would say it is quite a nice looking brush for £6, it photographs well but I do wish they looked more interesting. The bristles are very short which I believe is the point. This brush is designed to literally paint stripes of contour onto your face, specifically underneath your cheekbones to sculpt your bone structure. It does do this, and as it is so densely packed together you do get a solid stripe of colour. It works well with the powder contour palette I reviewed yesterday. It is not an ideal brush for a subtle contour, you will need a fluffier brush to diffuse the product. This can be done with a buffing brush or a blush brush.
It is a great brush for what it is designed for, just not for blending, it does feel weird and the bristles are very very short. On the other hand, a flat foundation brush could do the exact same job and you get one very cheaply from Poundland so it is up to you whether you feel you need it or not. Another contour brush I recommend is the Tarte Swirl Powder and Contour Brush (£10), it can give you precise application as well as the ability to blend it out. I do think it will work quite well for cream contouring, as it will paint very precise, slightly curved lines.
What one makeup brush can you not live without?
