Flat Straight Contour Brush, worth buying or not?

Recommended Posts

Here's what I mean by flat straight contour brush.

 

I'm also after a dupe if you know any other brands that does one like this. It doesn't have to look the same, I'm after the straight bristles, not the handle.

I have a couple of straight and angled contour / highlight brushes in varying sizes from MAC, Kevyn Aucoin, Lise Watier and Tools.

I'm also looking for an affordable dupe for a contouring brush like that. Ever since I saw the Nars one I've been in love, but can't bring myself to spend that much right now.

Sonia Kashuk has one that I know of, not sure if it is that good though. The Benefit box of powders like Hoola comes with a brush that is not that bad at all, I have been using the one that came with mine, love it!

I have this and am not at all fond of it.  I have maybe used it 3 times at most in the year I have had it.  I wouldn't waste my money...

The flat contour brush is great for defining after you have initially created your contour. For a MUCH cheaper and comparable quality to the Mac one, check out Morphe Brushes (link is below). For only $13, you can't beat it. If you ever are in the Burbank, CA area, Morphe is definitely worth a vision. It's truly brush heaven.

My sister has the NARS one and absolutely loves it. She uses it both to apply and to blend. Personally, I don't do sufficiently detailed contouring to need such a specific application. I did get the Benefit Cabana Glama box and it comes with a tiny, flat, straight contour brush, so I'll be trying that out - @@Queennie mentioned that it's good (although she might have been talking about a bigger one) so that's good to know!

Yep those are the ones I am talking about! It seems though that different powders they sell come with different brushes, like Hoola comes with a good one for contouring, while Hervana comes with a not so good one for that job.

What I like about the NARS Ita is how soft the bristles are, so I don't have to worry about getting a super harsh contour line. That said, I don't use it a lot for contouring, more often for highlighting and it's nice for that, too. The stiffer ones like MAC or similar, might not work so well for me.

 

I did use my little brushes from the Hoola and Sugarbomb boxes all the time before I had others, so I definitely wouldn't discount those little guys!

    • Careprost is a regenerating agent that was originally developed to treat hypotrichosis and restore healthy eyelash growth. The product is a sterile solution that should be applied externally, treating them with the growth lines of the upper eyelashes and eyebrows.  Perfect eyelashes complete the look of your eyes; they add beauty to you and make you look attractive. Fuller eyelashes not only define your eyes but also sharpen your facial features. Eyes with long lashes look bigger and brighter. Whatever might be your skin’s complexion, your sharp features make you glow even in your dark skin color. The cosmetic market has a wide variety of eyelashes of different colors, length, density, and curvy ones etc. which you can wear with ease. But are these fake eyelashes are much being easier to apply or they are actually hassled. Putting fake eyelashes is a tough task and make the process troublesome is to make them intact for a long duration, controlling your hands to not to touch them. Using fake eyelashes is a temporary solution; it does not give you a natural look.
    • Yeah I totally agree  that the trends of fashion of clothes is growing with the passage of time so it's needed for everyone of clothes as make your appearance very obvious and awesome ..
    • Yes, it is quite good. Why do you ask this?
    • But what if she CAN'T afford experimenting with different products? That might really make the situation worse and harm her hair even more... Same with home remedies. If your really want to change your hairstyle then hair extension is a good option because you won't damage your hair and scalp. You can actually lookup the tutorials on the web, but videos on Youtube are more descriptive.
