This is the post that I warned you about – the one where I talk about a make up brush. It’s embarrassing how long I tried to think of an interesting angle to pep things up and entertain myself during the writing process. On this occasion I failed and decided to just lay it all out for you.
The Louise Young LY20 Super Fan Brush is a “must have” in the brush closet for any highlighter addicts out there. Even though I have a pinhead and this fan dwarfs my cheek area I don’t think I have come across a tool that so perfectly deposits the right amount of product – every single time.
The natural hairs are incredibly soft, the handle perfectly tapered for control and the magic post-usage real. I can take a highlighter like the super shimmery "Mary Lou Manizer" by theBalm (fabulous product by the way!) and one sweep places it right where I need it to.
The sheer size of the brush does require a little angling - it took me a few uses to get it right - and I think for some this might be too big to handle. I can't get enough of it though - there's something luxurious about sweeping this on your face and I have been wielding it every single day since I got it - either as a highlighter brush or as a general face powder sweeper. It's love.
I may as well whack in a pursed-lips FOTD at this point especially as the product picture below gives you a better sense of the size perspective of the LY20. It's a big'un!
Face: Clarins Extra Comfort foundation with a teeny bit of Chanel Soleil Tan de Chanel /Laura Mercier Mineral Powder
