Product performance: Introducing the other half of tarte’s next-generation “powder couple.” Designed to complement the newly re-launched smooth operator™ Amazonian clay tinted pressed finishing powder, this professional quality bamboo brush balances lightweight design with the ultimate in luxury. Achieve a seamless, natural-looking complexion with this goofproof, eco-chic tool made with sustainable bamboo and supremely soft, synthetic bristles.

This brush is so incredibly soft and it works amazingly well for applying powder. The handle has a nice weight and it is a gorgeous addition to my brush collection.
Luxie Beauty – Luxie Rose Gold Medium Fan Brush #560 ($18 USD) *I purchased this for just under $15 CAD*
Our Luxie Rose Gold Medium Fan Face brush has been handcrafted with ultra soft vegan synthetic bristles to allow a soft touch to the skin when swiping back and forth. This uniquely shaped brush gives you the easiest and precise application of highlighter and bronzer when you need it. It helps enhance and sculpt your cheekbones while also allowing you to swipe away any excess powder from the cheekbones and undereye area.
I’ve been wanting to get a fan brush for several months now. The synthetic bristles are super soft. I’ve been using it for applying highlighter all week.
Luxie Beauty – Luxie Rose Gold Tapered Highlighting Brush # 522 ($24 USD) *Generation Beauty Freebie*
A testament to cruelty-free and vegan beauty, this Luxie highlighting brush features a sleek pink handle and rose gold ferrule. The makeup brush has antibacterial synthetic bristles that are clean and soft as silk on the skin. Without needing a lot of makeup product, the brush size makes it ideal for an easy and simple makeup application. Perfect as an everyday highlight brush.
Another super soft synthetic brush from cruelty-free and vegan brand Luxie Beauty. I think that I will be using this one mainly for bronzer.
Royal & Langnickel – MODA Smoky Eye Brush #BMD-421 ($6.99 USD) *Generation Beauty Freebie*
Synthetic Filament. Apply shadow with precision in the crease and close to the lash line for a dramatic eye look. This beautifully bold, 100% vegan line includes water-resistant acrylic handles with a Silk-Touch™ coating for ultimate durability and ease of care.
These MODA brushes are ridiculously soft. I’ve used this brush a couple of times for a subtle day version of a smoky eye.
Royal & Langnickel – MODA EZglam Duo – Luscious Lips #BMD-EGLL ($5.99 USD) *Generation Beauty Gift Bag Swag*
Nude or dramatic, get full luscious lips with the Pointed Lip and Flat Lip brushes.
These brushes are great for applying darker shades of liquid lipsticks as I find that the doe foot applicator that most liquid lipsticks have is not precise enough.
Crown Brush – Flawless Face Blender #DP1-O ($24.99 USD) *I purchased this for $6.00 CAD*
I got this to test out and replace my Real Techniques sponge as it is starting to wear out. The flawless face blender sponge is really soft, and I found it to be easy to use for applying foundation or BB cream.
The photo on the left shows the blender dry, and the photo on the right shows how it looks when dampened.
Crown Brush – Brow Duo #C413 ($8.20 USD) *Generation Beauty Gift Bag Swag*
I use brow pencils right now, so the brow brush end hasn’t been tested out. The bristles are pretty hard though. The spoolie brush end is a spoolie – I think that they are all pretty much the same.
Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day! ❤
