Target has finally arrived in Canada and with it have arrived Sonia Kashuk brushes.
Since I've slowly converted to mostly natural hair brushes for applying powder products, I was glad to have access to these. The price is slightly high for a drugstore brand but I found it reasonable and quite worth it.
I like that there are different shapes, but when identical hair is used to make each one it is not a good thing. More expensive brands use Goat, Pony, Squirrel.. or a combination of these accordingly. Each natural hair has its own thickness, texture, and application properties.
Out of the whole line I picked up only this.
The bristles are not too long, not too short, and the flat slightly domed shape is very easy to work with. I use it for contour and it works amazingly. It has a perfect combination of shape, softness, and density.
Though you could try different uses for this, for blush I prefer an angled less dense brush made out of pony. For highlight I use the Sephora Pro Contour Brush #74 which is great. And to set my sunscreen with loose powder nothing so far has managed to replace the ELF Powder Brush which is my very favorite.
This brush is so soft and does not shed. It's very inexpensive. I love the size of it for applying blush, because it is dense, it blends really well too. I would highly recommend it and I am getting another one as a backup, I love it so much!
This product gets just the right amount of product on it without wasting any of the excess. I find with regular blush brushes, you either get too much or too little product on the brush, but with this brush you tap the amount you need and that's what you get. Since the brush is so dense, there's not much room to get too much on the brush. The handle is nice and comfy to hold as well.
