This week, I bring you the Charm Dual Fibre Brush from Beauty and Minerals Online Store. It is an exclusive brush in the Charm Brush Collections. I believe that this is the first stippling brush that is being sold under a Filipina-owned business. Now that is really something. Pinay pride, indeed.
Personally, I didn't see the use of a Dual Fibre brush until when I got myself a proper stippling brush, not the fake ones, I realized the diffrence it made on my everyday makeup routine. The white taklon hair attracts pigments effortlessly and delivers it all on to my desired placement without much effort on my part. Application using the Dual Fibre brush makes every application look more natural and soft.
I maximized the use of this brush during gigs. Not only are my clients impressed with the cute handle, but applying my Ellana Sheer Velvet with this brush for retouch during shoots keeps the models' makeup fresh and flawless. Armed with only this brush and my Ellana Sheer Velvet, I am good to go where ever the photographer drags me and the model.
As for liquid application, the Dual Fibre earned its worthiness for the flawless finish it always provide. Not to mention that it doesn't eat a lot of product because of the white taklon hair. Stippling liquid foundation is a lot easier because the white taklon hair is a lot densier that even with a heavy hand, it doesn't bend as easily. I simply have to close my hand closer to the edge of the ferrule if i want a heavier coverage.
I also use this brush to apply my baked mineralized blushes. Since this type of blush is very pigmented, I opt for the Dual Fibre brush to give me just the right amount to achieve a more natural glowy look. I didn't understand before how to apply baked mineralized blushes but with the Dual fibre, it is now easy.
The only downside of this brush is that it bleeds when you wash it. The reason for this is because the pony hair is dyed in black. But it will not bleed after the fourth washing. Also, don't be surprise with the shedding at your initial washing, its just the stray hairs that weren't shaken off.
But still, here are photos comparing the two:
Charms pony hairs are a lot longer compared to that of MAC 187.
