I love this time of year—it’s like second to holiday with all the new beauty and fashion launches! I’m like a kid stuck in an FAO Schwarz-Dylan’s Candy Bar hybrid overnight with no parental guidance…lol.
Make Up For Ever is adding to the excitement with the launch of SEVENTY-SIX new brushes in their new Artisan Brush collection. The collection which took five years in the making testing various synthetic fibers that mimic the silky softness of natural hair, brand founder Dany Sanz having a consultation with renowned brush manufacturer Raphaël on the swanky island of Mauritus to design the brushes, and 25 stages of construction that involved hand-crafting by a 30 people from start to finish.
This is serious business, ya’ll.
Make Up For Ever sent over ten of the brushes for review. I’ll update in a few weeks with a review on each one as it does take some time to give a fair judgement on something like makeup brushes, but I have the scoop on all seventy-six plus a close-up look at the ten I received.
So here’s how the brushes are categorized:
400s artistic specially designed for professionals
Then each brush is categorized by either straight or wavy—this specific synthetic fiber technology is what differentiates this brush collection from any other.
When fibers are straight, application more generous and precise, while wavy bristles are more splayed, allowing for lighter and freer application. A unique combination of the two fiber textures gives infinite creative possibilities.
And now onto the brushes! First the ten I received and then a chart that goes through all 76 and their purpose.
*PHEW* That’s a lot of brushes!
Select brushes will be available at Sephora stores, all brushes will be available on Sephora.com and Make Up For Ever Boutiques in September :)
