Those of you on my Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest may know that I ordered a few Bubbi brushes a couple of weeks ago. Since then, I've been trialling them and, well, here are the results! I've been a fan of Bubzbeauty for a few years now, so I was really excited to finally be trying her products.
As I ordered the buffer and angled liner separately to the Flawless HD, I expected them to arrive at different times, but I was pleasantly surprised to see I didn't have to wait any longer.
HD Flawless I bought this brush because it looked similar to some of the stippling brushes I had been looking at to use with my Rimmel Match Perfection Cream Gel foundation (as fingers and foundation brushes don't work well with this product). A lot of reviews I've read on this product have said the bristles were too hard and the actual brush was too small. I agree with the size, it does take longer to apply foundation to the entire face, but I found the bristles perfect for the job. The angle of the brush allows me to get into the corners of my eyes and nose, but, due to the size, it is easy to miss parts of the face making the foundation streaky in parts. Luckily, I'd already foreseen that problem and bought the next brush on my list.
Buffer I use this brush after I apply foundation to buff away any streaks, and sometime use it to apply powder (depending on if I'm feeling too lazy to reach for my kabuki). This brush is difficult to review for me as it only really has one job - fix what another brush couldn't. In all fairness, it does it's job very well, but in terms of powder application, I see no difference between using this brush and my kabuki.
Angled liner I do not like this brush. At all. I bought it as the brush that came with my gel liner is now past it's best, smudging the liner across my lid. I thought I was in need of a new one that could give me the clean lines that my old brush once did (and I still am in need of such a brush!). This brush claimed to give 'clean crisp lines', so I thought, "perfect! That's just what I need!"
However, this brush does not give me clean crisp lines. In fact, it's worse that my current brush! If I were to rename this brush, I would call it a smudge brush, because that's exactly what it does - smudges. I will persevere with this it, using it with a different liner, but the bristles seem too thick to give me the lines I want. I've seen Bubz use this brush in her videos, so I thought it would be a good purchase. Sorry Bubz, this one just didn't work for me.
Lastly, I just want to say that I finally have the new domain up and running on Bloglovin' (after a few problems with the RSS feed), so don't forget to follow! ;)
