The Make Up For Ever 140 Small Highlighting Brush ($34) was a Sephora VIB sale purchase for me, and I am so happy that I picked this up! I’ve had an interest in this brush line for awhile, and I do have a couple of eye brushes, but this is my first face brush from the line.
It can be tricky to apply a powder highlight; often times I use a brush that is too big and end up mixing the highlight with my blush, but I don’t always want that effect! This brush is small and precise, making it the perfect shape for the tops of cheekbones. The bristles are incredibly soft, and after washing this brush, it still looks and feels brand new. Many times I’ve purchased brushes that lose their quality after washing, which is really disappointing.
PRODUCT DESCRIPTION (from Sephora)
After five years in development with makeup artists and fiber experts, MAKE UP FOR EVER Artisan Brushes are a revolution in brush craftsmanship. The 100-percent fiber brushes are available in a range of 76 handcrafted styles, each with the perfect balance of straight and wavy fibers that replicate natural hairs. Beveled tips create a two-in-one makeup brush and tool, while innovative hair density and brush head shapes optimize every stroke for ideal makeup application. To achieve the ultimate collection, every brush has gone through 25 production stages by 30 craftsmen and has been checked for quality 50 times.
This brush is also the perfect shape for setting under eye powder, and because it is so soft, it doesn’t irritate or scratch my skin.
The handle of the brush is very sturdy and smooth. I really like the design of these brushes. The handle tapers slightly at the bottom. Overall, this brush is well-made and a joy to use. I would re-purchase it, but I think this is going to last for a LONG time. 🙂
