Artis Palm Brush

I have been intrigued by Artis brushes for ages now. They look so different to other more traditional looking make up brushes. Their oval shape and long handles make them look more like those old-fashioned hair brushes that my Nan used to use.

All you ever hear is good stuff about these brushes. The only thing putting me off trying them was the price.

One of my favourite bloggers and You Tubers is Lydia Elise Millen. Her makeup is always flawless and she always applies her foundation with the Artis Palm Brush. So, when my Morphe foundation brush started to moult, I decided to take the plunge and check out the Artis Brushes.

I went to Net a Porter website and ordered the palm brush in the Elite Smoke colour. I chose this grey colour only because it was the cheapest. I loved the gold one but it was an extra £15!!

Within a few days it arrived.

I love the Net a Porter packaging. Everything comes in a beautiful black box tied with their black ribbon.

So whats the most expensive make up brush I have ever used like?

Well, you can use this brush for all sorts. Foundation, setting powder, bronzer even moisturisers. I think this brush would actually be a great way of appling fake tan. I will just be using it for foundation though.

I dabbed my Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation onto my skin, then blended it in with the palm brush.

The first thing to say is how quick this brush makes applying foundation. Because its big, it covers your face really quickly.

The next thing is the control. The brush sits nicely into the palm of your hand. There is a notch where your index finger sits and this give you fantastic control. This means you can apply the right amount of pressure and glide the brush over your skin effortlessly.

There are hundreds of thousands of bristles which are packed so tightly, its dense and soft and it feels like you’re rubbing velvet over your skin rather than a brush. It does not drag the skin at all. I was worried that it may just drink the foundation as its so dense but it doesn’t it just blends it perfectly.

So to summarise, I love this brush. There is nothing I don’t like about it. I love the way it looks, the way it fits into your palm giving total control and the finish it gives your skin is the best I have ever had. It really does give a flawless finish.

Have your tried this or any of the Artis brushes?

Thanks for reading
