The truly designer makeup brush

beauty products

Japanese giant Shu Uemera is the beauty equivalent of a couturier when it comes to brushes. Its handcrafted Petal 55 foundation brush, which debuted last year, allows for smooth, one-stroke application on all parts of the face. Thanks to its ergonomic, faceted handle; the plush density of its feather-soft bristles (189,000 of them, to be exact); and one-of-a-kind geometric shape. (For areas such as the cheek, use the flat side; for trickier nooks like around the nose, simply rotate and use the corners.) Now a limited edition has been released – the only difference between this and the OG being that it’s now in pretty pink, not black. (Even the price, $80, remains.) Is that reason enough to get it? It’s your call, but we know many beauty and design geeks who’d say yes.
