Review & Usage
Charlotte Tilbury Powder & Sculpt Brush is designed for precise facial sculpting. The brush is extremely lightweight and well-balanced. The night crimson-colored wooden handle has an ergonomic multifaceted design to aid in handling and storage (it will never roll off the table). The rose gold ferrule and engraved brand's logo are beautiful and add a touch of luxury to the overall design.
What drew me to this brush was the size and shape. It is a full-size brush but it is a very portable one. It is a brush that I like to keep in my purse for touching up my powder during the day. The size of the head is just perfect, it's not too big or too small and it makes touching up in specific areas very easy. The brush head is made of genuine squirrel and goat hair that feels really soft on the skin. I like the softness of it but I'm not too crazy about the shedding. This brush does shed a lot, even after multiple washes. I have washed it 3 times now and the shedding still continues, though less and less hair comes off after each wash. Hopefully it will stop at some point.
The tapered tip is very precise. It's not a brush I'd use to apply powder all over the face because that would be too time-consuming. For highlighting and sculpting, however, it does a fantastic job because it fits right into the hollow of the cheeks as well as the apples of the cheeks. It deposits the right amount of powder on the intended area and distributes it evenly.
The tip also reaches the inner corner and under the eye area perfectly so I like to use it to set my concealer as well. It is also great for blending out a cream-to-powder blush for a diffused look, contouring the sides of the nose, and highlighting the Cupid's bow. It is a versatile and all-round tool that I am happy to have in my collection.
