At long last I am finally doing my blog as promised on the Makeup Geek (MUG) Face Buffer Brush. This brush is $17.99 U.S. In the past I have used mostly Sigma Beauty Kabuki brushes for my foundation. While I like the assortment of Sigma Kabuki brushes that I have for foundation, I just had this feeling that I could do better. Also, one of my Sigma brushes fell apart a few months ago after 4 years of on and off wear and tear.
I also bought a pricey Sephora #56 Pro Brush a few months back and was not impressed. I should have returned it. Anyway, I decided to pick up the MUG Face Buffer Brush and I was not disappointed. The bristles are densely packed and it glides around my face so easily. It has now become my favourite foundation brush. I do have to wash it quite regularly though as it is only good for 3 to 4 uses tops. I have to sub in the Sigma ones while this one is dirty and/or drying.
I just find that this brush is easier and faster to work with than the Sigma ones. It's softer too. Don't get me wrong, as far as I am concerned, the best thing that Sigma does is their foundation brushes and I still use mine quite a bit when this one is out of commission. I also think that my foundation looks less streaky even after a couple of initial swipes when I am applying foundation when I use this brush versus the Sigma ones. I just have to work less with it to get a good result.
Holy cow! I just noticed that Sigma is now selling their Kabuki brushes starting at $24 U.S. Things have certainly gone up since I last purchased one.
Well given that little surprise I have to say that the MUG Face Buffer Brush is cheaper and as mentioned, works better in my opinion. The rounded head works perfectly for me. I purchased this brush myself from Makeup Geek and I am not sponsored by them in any way. Just a little disclaimer there.
