QVS The Airbrush Stippling Brush Review
This was my pasalubong from my ever kikay friend April. :) It think it’s been with me for over one year now. This is my first ever stippling brush and still my only stippling brush..and I was not that happy with it until yesterday!
Helps create a flawless airbrush finish. Unique blend of natural and synthetic fibres.
QVS The Airbrush is a brush made of duo-fibre blend of natural and synthetic bristles which are two colours black and white and the two levels of bristles allows to layer and blend for a light or heavy coverage.
Looking back at the packaging, it says:
- Duo-fibre blend for supernatural application of powders, concealers and liquid make-up
—I really doubt the part “liquid make-up”. Haha! But it blends my powder really well. I don’t know if it’s just me but when I use this it doesn’t look like I’m wearing powder foundation as compared to when I use my kabuki brush to apply.
- MINERAL MAKE-UP MUST HAVE The perfect brush for applying mineral powders and blushes
— If I only I read this before. It really applies blush lightly giving you more control.
I was disappointed when I first got it. It was so flimsy and bended whenever I stipple. I don’t know if I’m just noob when it comes to stippling. It also sheds every time I use it with my liquid foundation–black fibers on my face. Not to mention it always shed when I wash it. It is also not that dense. I checked Charm’s stippling brush and their brush looks the same. Not that dense, and flimsy…
Really not dense enough
I had hard time blending liquid foundation with it due to the fibers not being dense enough. I \had to blend it with my fingers. It also doesn’t reach the inner corners of my eyes.
So I gave up on it…until yesterday, I decided to use it with my trusty powder foundation Fashion 21 Two Way Cake with Tea Tree Oil (link). I was amazed that it gave me that airbrush finish that I was looking for before when I was using it with my liquid foundation. I also used it with my Sleek Rose Gold blush and still amazed that it didn’t look heavy and made up–just a nice glow!
The thing that I still hate about it is that it really sheds after washing, maybe 2-3 small fibres. It is also quite pokey but it isn’t scratchy naman ;)
QVS The Airbrush Stippling Brush - What I Like About It
- Applies powder makeup really well
- Gives a true airbrush finish when using powder products
- Picks up product from the pan really well
- Not that dense, allowing my makeup to look more natural since it doesn’t pick up too much powder (this could be a con if you use this in applying liquid products)
- Easy to clean and dries up fast
- It is soft!
- Doesn’t bleed :)
- Affordable at £8 at Superdrug stores
QVS The Airbrush Stippling Brush - What I Don’t Like About It
- Sheds every time I wash it
- Quite poke-y in a way but I could still tolerate it :P
- Sheds when liquid foundation is used
- Not locally available
- Flimsy for liquid foundation application
Honestly I won’t recommend it since it could be a waste for some but I am happy that I found a way to use it again. :) I’m still on the hunt for the perfect stippling brush. I am eyeing the Real Techniques stippling brush. Anyone tried that? :)
