Not too long ago, I picked up the Too Faced Powder Puff Brush ($32) to replace my struggling old powder brush. It’s deceptively cute – and by that I mean, it’s a great brush despite looking like it came with a My Little Pony gift set. I’m not a huge fan of its over-the-top cutesy appearance, but I can deal.
Too Faced is one of those brands I had looked at as an outsider. Much like Kat Von D and Tokidoki, I saw it as an overpriced novelty line, and not an everyday standard. (Too harsh?) But after discovering Starry-Eyed glitter liner and this brush, I know I’ll be keeping an eye on this brand in the future.
These bristles are super-soft “teddy bear hair” and surprisingly dense. It’s really one of the softest brushes I’ve ever used, and I love that. The densely packed bristles, however, throw me for a loop. I’m still getting used to the heavier application, but it looks great – very smooth and even. It’s decent with pressed powders, but amazing with loose ones (like MUFE’s HD Microfinish powder). And I’m not a mineral makeup girl (yet), but I imagine it’d be perfect for that too.
Pick one of these up next time you’re at Sephora… even if it’s just to feel the teddy bear hair.
