I've heard a lot about the Flawless Wonder Brush and other brushes of this type lately and all have been surrounded with great reviews. When I spotted the Flawless Wonder Brush recently in our local chemist I thought "this is great" and I parted with my €13.99.
The brush have a curved handle possibly for ease of use but felt very flimsy in the hand. The head of the brush is oval (most of us think "toothbrush") and the bristles extremely dense (uncomfortably so). The brush can be used for liquid, creams, and powders and I gave all of them a go with this brush. So after a month (if not more) of really trying to get to grips with this brush I am no better off.
The brush is so dense it can feel scratchy on the most sensitive of places on my skin i.e the top of my cheekbones and the bristles do not seem to budge so doesn't move with the product (if you can catch my drift at all). Another downside to this brush is how long it takes to apply the products and buff in as the brush is just too small. I'm a big fan of flat top Kabuki brushes and they get the job done effortlessly and in quick time.
The application of the products, either cream or liquid did not bode well with me. The products was dragged across my face even though I would make sure not to miss buffing a single bit, I was still left with the product moving from one side to the other leaving me with patchy foundation. I moved on to trying this with contouring only to find it just would not blend out any harsh lines that I had. I got very frustrated with this brush and I've now given up on it.
This brush has been compared to the O! Wow Brush by Cailyn and even though I haven't tried it, I have seen it up close and the bristles do have movement in it compared to this. I ended up not buying it as I don't think these oval shaped brushes are for me. I think this has got to be the most disappointing review of a product I have ever done but this was my experience using it. If you think you can master the technique it takes to use this and have the patience then this could definitely be for you. I've also decided not to let this brush hit the bin either after reading Blather and the Beauty blog 3 alternatives ways to use it, so definitely worth checking that out everyone!
Let me know if you have used this and how you got on, or if you are considering taking the plunge to buy?
