As if Clarisonic hasn’t given us reason enough to love them, on top of their range of skin cleansing brush attachments, they came out with a foundation brush attachment that applies foundation with the smoothest most flawless finish! Investing in a Clarisonic device is investing into your skin and this new brush head is just a bonus.
The facts: This brush head was designed to utilize patented oscillation technology which generates over 18,000 micro-blends per minute. The bristles are synthetic, nonporous and anti-microbial and it’s super easy to clean. It’s compatible with every Clarisonic brush device and can be used to apply liquid foundation, bb cream, primer, liquid highlighter or contour.
SO – the first time I used this I jumped right in not even thinking about the amount of foundation I’d need. Unlike a traditional brush or beauty sponge, this soaks up ZERO product allowing you to use a lot less. Something to keep in mind to avoid the infamous cake face AKA how I looked after applying 2 pumps of my foundation – woahhhh too much. Half the amount of foundation you’d normally use, dabbed all throughout your face is what I find to work best. The bristles are really soft and gentle and I noticed minimal shedding.
I found that it took me a total of 2 minutes to evenly apply my foundation, so a little longer than a traditional brush but you can see a difference in the finish. While I don’t quite think it makes my makeup look air brushed, I do think it smoothes everything out so evenly and softly and leaves a flawless finish. I haven’t used this for blush or highlighter (I’m a fan of powder face products over cream), though I did test this out with a cream contour stick and WOW, that’s when I realized the magic in this. If you have trouble blending out your contour to look more natural and seamless, this will do all of the work for you. So whether you’re looking for an amazing foundation brush or looking to apply contour like a pro – Clarisonic has you covered!
