Smashbox Makeup Brushes For Foundation, Concealer, and Powder

beauty blog, makeup blog, product reviews blog, beauty reviews blogTruthfully?  I think maybe I have a bit of a makeup brush obsession.  I also have a bit of an obsession with the color red, so this collection of Smashbox Camera Ready Brushes is really ideal for me!  I purchased an inexpensive desk from Target to act as my vanity.  The color? Red… of course.  An entire drawer of this piece of furniture is filled with makeup brushes.  It seems only right that maybe they feature sexy glossy red handles like this!

Brushes featured in image above (from left to right):

  • Buildable Foundation–  When you are using a medium to full-coverage concealer, it’s best to build up the coverage in thin layers for a more natural look.  This brush is key for this strategy!  Also, if you’re looking to purchase only one foundation brush, this one is your best bet as it can work with almost any formula.  Retail price $32.
  • Sheer Foundation–  This foundation brush is my new favorite!  Intended for use with light-coverage foundations (that are so popular these days) this brush features very long bristles that distribute product evenly in a wider area.  Retail price $40.
  • Powder Foundation– This dense brush is perfect for mineral foundations, and buffs them to a natural finish!  Retail price $38.
  • Full-Coverage Foundation– This brush is intended for full-coverage formulas, and features a slightly angled design to really conform to the face during application.  Retail price $36.
  • Sheer Powder– This brush features long bristles to evenly dust a fine layer of powder on the skin to set makeup.  Retail price $40.
  • Stippling Foundation– Designed to be used with liquid foundations, bronzers, and highlighters, this brush should be gently tapped all over the area you seek coverage, then gently swirled to blend.  Retail price $38.
  • Blurring Foundation– This brush can be used with liquids, creams, powders… you name it!  This brush is designed with multiple lengths of bristles to achieve maximum coverage when you have something to hide.  Retail price $32.
  • Angled Powder–  Fans of contouring, this brush is for you!  The Angled Powder brush can be used to create those perfect chiseled cheekbones using contouring powder.  Retail price $34.
  • Gel Cushion Applicator–  This brush is totally new to me!  Unlike a makeup sponge, this gel cushion applies makeup to the skin in a way more similar than fingertips!  Use it for applying primers, or any liquid or cream foundation. Retail price $20.

So far, I am insanely impressed with the Smashbox Camera Ready Brush Collection!  None of these brushes have shed even one bristle!  They are made with very soft, high-quality synthetic fibers, and YES they are cruelty-free!
