On Christmas morning, I savaged the wrapping paper to get to a small bracelet-or-watch-shaped box that was either from Tiffany's or ... suddenly a familiar shiny black box emerged with the white EB initials. My heart skipped a beat. Screw jewelry, I've got Edward.
As I opened the black lid, I half expected the hinges of hell to creak and the object to leap out and bite me on the neck. But no, it was just the cutest little brush I ever saw ensconced in its own wee coffin.
|Bwuaa haa haaaaa|
That said, this brush fits the hand perfectly—no long handles to poke the mirror, and I could tuck it into a makeup bag for later, if I were so inclined. (I don't carry brushes that don't have their own carrying pouch.) With its weighted metal base, the bristles are fairly soft, tight, and tapered at the end, so when I use it to apply bronzer or blush, I don't get a big splat of color down the side of my face, and I can apply the perfect amount of product across the bridge of my nose without it going up my nostrils or stabbing my corneas.
Now that spring imminent, I tested this brush with the Edward Bess Ultra Luminous Bronzer in Daydream, which I reviewed last week (here).
Bottom line: A beautiful presentation and a worthy addition at a semi-steep price, unique in its metal base.
