Think back a few years when BB Creams arrived and we all went mad for them; then came CC Creams and, rather predictably, we have DD Creams on the way, so it was only a matter of time before a brush was designed to be specifically used with these types of foundations…cue Japonesque who have launched their BB/CC Cream Brush. The cynic in my head has her head cocked to the side wearing a disapproving expression whilst holding a neon sign with the word “FAD” flashing across it, but there’s also the beauty-lover in there (she’s the one who ALWAYS wins) who’s extremely excited about the brush and can’t wait to get it in my mitts for a good bit of play!
The Japonesque BB/CC Cream Brush appears to be a Kabuki style brush with added detail; let’s call it Kabuki+. The extra details are duo-fibre, duo-length bristles and a contoured head to make buffing in BB/CC Creams a breeze. It all sounds very good so I’m looking forward to picking it up on my next visit to John Lewis. It isn’t cheap at £23, but having used quite a few Japonesque brushes before, I can vouch for both their efficiency and longevity; they’re definitely investment brushes that will go the distance with proper TLC. Here’s the brush at John Lewis – link. If anyone has used it already I’d love to hear your thoughts!
