NYX Professional Makeup Fan Brush #6
Price: $17 (around P900)
Bought from: NYX Philippines
Here's another brush review from the drugstore brand - NYX. It was ages ago when I tried one of the NYX brushes and I didn't like it for the fact that the bristles were coarse and the brush is way too flimsy. I'm so happy because they are truly doing the best they can to level up their makeup game by improving not just their makeup formulations but the tools as well. Here's a review to the most favorite brush I've tried from their professional collection so far - Pro Fan Brush #6.
Gear up like a pro and add your own expert touch to every look with the NYX Professional Makeup Pro Fan Brush – a dense, velvety brush for creating a flawless, smooth full coverage finish. Creates a no makeup look without streaking. Also works great with powders to give an effortless highlight on the highest points of the face. Made with synthetic fibers.
This brush is truly gorgeous wherever I look. The sleek black handle is looking great. The brand's name is printed in clear, crisp font style. The matte black ferrule is sturdy enough to hold the brush head and handle intact for a very long time. When I first got it in the mail, I was so impressed with the brush considering the amount that I paid. I got it on sale for only more or less P400. That's about half off the US site's regular selling price.
The brush hair is made of two-toned synthetic fibers that are super, super soft. I've said it over a hundred times but I love and am only keeping brushes with soft bristles. When I got this, I immediately tried it and I'm not getting a brush with a hair or two that scratch the skin. Compared to other fan brushes, the bristles are greatly packed together - they don't shed at all and they are dense enough to form a diamond-like shape as you look from the top. Because of its shape, I find other uses for this brush other than highlighting. It works well as a powder contour - it blends the color well, giving a diffused, subtle dimension on the face. I sometimes use it as a powder brush because it fits the corners of the face. You can also use it as a dusting brush to dust away excess powders or pigment fallouts on the skin. Moreover, because of the size and shape, this is a great body brush too.
NYX Professional Makeup Pro Fan Brush #6 is indeed a remarkable brush from a drugstore brand. I like that I can use it for multiple purposes so that makes it a great keep. The high quality bristles and functional design made it even better. It does what it's supposed to and has a great blending power.
