Charm Travel Pointed Foundation Brush

I came across a blog post with Charm brushes product reviews and I instantly fell in love with the brushes. I think the pink handles caught my attention since I have a longtime love affair with the color pink.

When I accompanied my husband in Shangri-la Mall, I grabbed the opportunity to visit The Ramp, Crossings and checked on the rack of Charm brushes.Oh! I felt like I was in a brush haven and I even wanted to try all of the brushes on my face. But, of course, due to sanitary reasons, I didn’t.

Since, I just recently purchased a 32-piece make-up brush set, I decided to get the Charm Travel Pointed Brush. If only I learned about the Charm brushes first, I could have bought it instead of the other set that I got.

The Product:

Charm Travel Pointed Brush is part of the Charm Essentials Vegan Makeup Brush Collection. This ultra-versatile foundation brush applies and blends cream/liquid products to a flawless finish, and features a gently tapered tip that allows precision application on targeted areas, specially on the contours of the face. This product is perfect for concealing and foundation application.

This is made from a special, premium grade of animal-friendly vegan hair.

Charm Travel Pointed Brush

I love the pink handle.

This brush is so soft on the face.

Packaging:

 It comes with a care card stating all the information about the product and washing instructions.

Packed in a plastic pouch

Charm Travel Pointed Brush is 1 inch longer than the size of an Iphone.

Washing instructions according to Charm Essentials:

  •  Run the bristles of the makeup brush under warm running water.
  •  Apply a small amount of shampoo/baby wash  to bristles and work into a light lather.
  • Rinse bristles thoroughly under running water until water becomes clear.
  • Squeeze off excess water then lay the brushes flat to dry (not standing up).
  • Leave in a well-ventilated place to dry.

The brush should be laid down flat to dry.

Price:

The best value for your money. This good quality vegan brush costs P380.00 only or roughly around 9 USD. This is affordable compared to other good quality brushes.

What I love about the product?

  • Since it is made from vegan hair, it is so soft. And, I perfectly love how the bristles brush through my face. No itchy feeling at all.
  • It has right density that ensures efficient make-up application.
  • Its firmness makes it easy to use.
  • Perfect for hard to reach areas like under eye and sides of the nose.
  • It gives a perfect, even and flawless finish.
  • Best for liquid or powder foundation.
  • The baby pink color of the handle is so feminine. I’m so in love with the color!
  • Perfect for traveling and can fit into your regular sized pouch.
  • It does not bleed when you’re using it,when you’re washing  and even after the products were laid down to dry .

 What I not so like about it?

  • It takes time to dry, when you wash it. Based on my own experience, it took 2 days.
  • I hope the handle is a bit longer.

Do I recommend this product?

Yes, Charm Travel Pointed Brush is a must-have for makeup enthusiasts like me most especially when you want to achieve a perfect and flawless finish. This can be a perfect gift to your sister, girlfriend, office mate and friends this coming Christmas.

Where to buy?

You can purchase this at The Ramp, Crossings, EDSA Shangri-la Mall.

    I’ve been meaning to buy Charm brushes but never had the chance to do so. I heard so many great reviews about it.

    • Reply Maica Ocfemia-Figuracion October 12, 2012 at 5:58 pm

      Charm brushes are really a must-have! =) It’s worth to have one most especially the Vegan Collection.

    Looks like a really nice brush mommy. I am looking for new make-up brushes as well and still shopping online. I too wash my brush because I don’t want it to get really dirty, but when I dry it I don’t lay it flat, but I let it drip dry. Not with the brush up, but the brush down so the water won’t get into the handle of the brush and could get the glue to come off. I have to buy a brush guard too though perfect for travelling and for when drying brushes after washing so you can let it stand with brush down.

    To be honest, I know nothing about makeup and brushes, but I’m interested to learn, and reading blog posts like yours makes me more informed about these girly stuff.

    this is nice. I’m not really a pinky lover but I love this shade of pink! This is perfect for Christmas gift.

    That is such a cute brush!

  • Reply Mauie October 18, 2012 at 11:53 pm

    Wow, it’s affordable. Do they also have a retractable kabuki brush because I badly need one.

    • Reply Maica Ocfemia-Figuracion October 20, 2012 at 4:15 am

      Yes, they have different sets of brushes. You may check their Multiply account or in Crossings, Shangri-La. =)

  • Reply Ane October 20, 2012 at 6:14 pm

    So cute!

    I also just got a brush set, but it’s not the expensive kind, so I don’t know if it’ll last long, but so far so good.

    I’m going to check out the malls here and see if they have that brand here too. 🙂

  • Reply Pepper Tan October 20, 2012 at 10:45 pm

    One thing I don’t like about brushes, is that it takes time for them to dry after washing. Patience is not my virtue, I guess :). But that’s a really nifty tool for women like us. We can prettify ourselves while on the go.

  • Reply Mommy Pehpot October 21, 2012 at 3:57 pm

    that’s the problem with mae up brushes.. it takes forever to dry.. specially this type of brush.. and the liquid tends to stick on the brush.. I’m looking out for a foundation brush that looks like a kabuki brush 🙂

  • Reply jem alvarado October 22, 2012 at 9:56 am

    Now I was reminded to wash my make-up brush.. The pink color is cute and I think it is handy too 🙂
