The Tools: Flawless Base Brush


 Okay, okay – so everyone and their dog have touted this is the best foundation brush ever. I know. Thing is everyone was right.
The Louise Young Super Foundation Brush lives up to every single blogger hype you’ve heard, and might just surpass it.

It’s not one for the super, heavy, no imperfection in sight application hell no! For that there’s a damp beauty blender teamed with a hefty dose of Kevyn Aucoin’s Sensual Skin Enhancer. If you, on the other hand, are seeking a quick and sheer application that leads to a base that is blended like perfection in mere minutes? Look no further.
No, it isn’t cheap at 24£ but are each of those worth it for a really awesome, great quality, synthetic brush that applies any foundation like a dream? Yes. I’ll admit I like most of my foundations anyway, Aquavita Lumiere is an awesome formula no matter how you apply it. So I tried it with one that’s heavier (GA Luminous Silk) not so heavy with this ‘fella but still gorge. I even went for a formula that I don’t really like applying with fingers or the Real Techniques Buffing Brush (my go-to until now) that only really works for me with a Beauty Blender. The dreaded YSL Touche Eclat that once upon a time was awesome on my face but for some reason lately just isn’t working, due to some pesky pores. Works like a dream despite being half a shade too light at the moment, this brush manages to sheer things out and provide the lightest of coverage with a quick swipe – but also let’s you build it up a little where you need it *hormonal breakout on the chin, anyone?.

Only downside? It takes forever to dry from a deep cleanse; which makes me want to put it off but also grosses me out because that thing needs cleanin’
Have any tips about how to clean this one quickly? Taken the plunge and snapped on up? Tell me your thoughts!
