Anyone who loves a good make-up brush will be extremely excited to hear that there’s a new make-up brush brand in town, and it’s really rather good. The MOXI Make-up Brush range is reasonably priced, easy to use and sold as professional brushes at affordable prices.
The small but perfectly formed range of brushes that currently make-up the full MOXI brush brand consist of five brushes: the Flat Top Angle Brush, the Goat Hair Powder Brush, the Taklon Foundation Brush, the Angled Eye Liner Brush and the Double-Ended Brush, all of which can be purchased individually or as a full set. I was sent three brushes to play with and here are my thoughts:
I’ll start with the one I’ve used least which is the Angled Eye Liner Brush. The only reason I haven’t used it much is because I’m not doing a lot with liquid liner at the moment, as even though I love the effect, it’s a little time-consuming so I haven’t been able to use it on a regular basis. Having said that, this brush is very fine, brilliantly angled to make application a breeze and cleans up really well too, so if you’re a fan of gel/pot liners then this is the brush for you. It costs £8 and can be found here – link.
Next is the brush I was most excited about which is the Flat Top Angle Brush. It’s a densely packed yet extremely soft kabuki style brush that can be used for all sorts of things, although I’ve found it best for powder foundation (either mineral or compact) as it buffs into the skin well and picks up just the right amount. I did try it with liquid foundation which others have found it really good for, but I found it sheered out foundation too much, so I think it would be good for most people’s foundation needs but for someone like me who needs a lot of coverage, it isn’t ideal. Powder is a whole other story though as it works it into the skin and leaves a very natural yet high coverage finish. It’s £13.50 here – link.
Last but not least is the Taklon Foundation Brush. This was an interesting one for me as I tend to not like using these paddle-style foundation brushes for foundation application as I find they apply the foundation without blending it into the skin, so you’re left with un-blended, mask-like foundation which quite frankly I could achieve without the aid of a brush! This one from MOXI is hands-down the best I’ve tried as it’s dense, soft and doesn’t feel synthetic at all so it works foundation into the skin without sheering it out, making it ideal for buildable coverage. I would even say that if you buy just one brush from MOXI then make it this one as you won’t be disappointed; it’s very impressive and much better than similar brushes that cost twice the price. It’s £13.50 here – link.
The full collection can be purchased here – link – for £48.80. I really hope more is added to the range as I really like the three brushes I’ve tried. If you felt the quality of the brushes you’d never guess just how cheap they are, so if you’re a brush fan then I recommend checking them out.
