Thanks to Nalini for requesting a review of the Urban Decay Good Karma Optical Blurring Brush I bought recently from Mecca.
So I’m not going to beat around the bush and I’m going to tell it to you straight – I almost love it.
I’m probably being overly critical as I had high hopes for it especially seeing as it was $35 for this brush.
Don’t get me wrong because it looks great, The handle is solid and it stands out from my other brushes.
Yes, the bristles are lovely and soft so it feels lovely on my skin…but it’s a tad too soft.
Yes, it can buff. BB cream and foundation look flawless (compared to applying it with fingers!) and I can see why it’s called Optical Blurring.
But the bristles aren’t dense enough to give the feeling of awesome buffing. I don’t know about you but I like that awesome buffing feeling on my face.
It’s like massages – I like those super deep massages where it’s hard to distinguish between pain and pleasure.
Does that make sense???
And that, my friends, is why I almost love this brush. It only just missed the mark.
If you want the perfect foundation brush with that amazing buffing feeling, I would suggest paying a little bit extra for the Shiseido Perfect Foundation Brush $49 as it gets into those awkward spots and gives the best buffing. You can totally tell from the densely packed flat top bristles in the photo, can’t you? 🙂
