1 Unit for INR 149

Oriflame Says: - This firm round brush is perfect for controlled eye shadow blending.

Materials: - Goat Hair, Aluminium & Wood.

Size: 180 mm

My Opinion: - After the Oriflame Professional Fan Powder Brush, today I am reviewing the Oriflame Professional Blending Brush. Now coming to the appearance of this blending brush, it has a glossy black aluminium ferule and a matte black sleek wooden handle. Its not too long or too short, the length of the brush is perfect for handling and using it as needed. The goat hair bristles are soft and rounded and a little bit longer compared to other blending brushes. This brush is fluffy but not dense enough.

                        I wash my brushes at night and leave them to dry overnight, that way I don't keep checking on them and waste time and get annoyed. I have washed this brush in-numerous times but it still retains its shape. This brush is easy to wash and dries fast. It doesn't comes with a brush guard but in a mere see through plastic pack which is not reusable. There has been no bleeding and sheding of the bristles. OK now, I wanted to say that there have been difference of opinion regarding the softness/roughness of the bristles of this brush. But I think its quality varies batch to batch. This type of inconsistency can not be expected from a brand like Oriflame.

                 This blending brush is multi-tasking, whereas it does the blending well, it can also act as a contouring brush, also I have used it to set concealer on my under-eye areas with a dash of loose powder and it can be used to highlight the face as well. I have used this brush for all the above mentioned jobs and it has proved its multi-functionality. But it is a blending brush and it is not tapered but rounded which makes it a liitle difficult to blend shadows in the crease. Either you have to apply minimum pressure i.e. use the brush with a soft hand or if you apply pressure the rounded head will spread and either the shadow will rub off or blending will look muddy.

Pros: -

* Affordable

* Soft bristles <3 <3

* Dries fast upon washing & also never sheds

* Sturdy brush, the wooden handle and matte polish is still intact after in-numerous washes

* Multi-tasking brush

Cons: -

* Availability is an issue

* Not Vegan since the bristles are made of Goat hair

* The bristles are rounded not tapered

                    I rate Oriflame Professional Blending Brush 4 out of 5 as the tip is rounded and it is a little tricky to make it work. Otherwise it is a good multi-tasker and sturdy brush. Also its cheap and still retains its shape after so many washes. Very affordable and good for practice. Actually at Rs 149 what could I expect more. I recommend to all beginners and Oriflame fans. 

Hope this review helped you in some way and do leave behind your sweet comments and also tell us about your favorite blending brush. Thank you and have a great day ahead :)
