So, if you read my post about the Guerlain by Emilio Pucci Terra Azzurra Bronzer here, you will be expecting this review of the Powder Brush, which I call my ‘Blue Brush’. I absolutely love good brushes, I have a fair amount of superb quality brushes from Suqqu, Laura Mercier, Shu and Stilazzi. I want to try some Japonesque brushes too, shame the leopard print set has sold out everywhere. Back to Guerlain….
This limited edition powder brush is part of the Guerlain by Emilio Pucci Summer collection. The colour is just stunning,it’s a midnight blue made from donkey hair. It has been designed to apply the Meteorites Perles (which I missed out on) or the Terra Azzurra Bronzer. I disagree with using this with the Terra Azzurra Bronzer, which is why I didn’t like this brush at first. It’s got quite a big firm head for a small handle and I found it fiddly and messy using it on my stunning Terra Azzurra, one use left it looking a right state.
So, naturally this annoyed me because my pretty palette looked like the surface of the moon (a number of mini craters). However, I can see this being the perfect companion for the Meteorites because it will help crush the pearls ready for application and as I don’t have the meteorites, I did find a use for this beautiful looking brush.
I have been using it with some Benefit products, the Coralista blusher and the all-over highlighter, Sugarbomb. They need a firm stubby brush (not the free one that comes with the product, I hate those) because they are quite dusty (if that makes sense).
So, overall, apart from this being the hottest looking brush I own, it is a winner to apply highlighters/loose powder. It picks up the right amount of product and buffs well into the skin, giving an all-over even glow.
I paid £28 for this brush from House of Fraser, however, I have seen it for £24 from Escentual.com…if it’s still in stock that is.
Fellow brush lovers like me will want this brush just to have it in their collection.
