“With a good makeup brush, every woman can be an artist” – Anonymous
I, love my tools & it is imperative that they are, perfect. We have all fallen head over heels with the new makeup trend, that hit the first half of 2016.
“Yes, I’m talking about the oval brushes”
Oval brushes have changed the way, you perceive makeup applications. What used to take a good 10 minutes, now takes only 3 minutes.
What are Oval Brushes?
Oval brushes are the latest & the most sought after trend, in the beauty community. These oval brushes are synthetic, densely packed & extremely soft on your skin. They look like little hairbrushes or toothbrushes, but do wonders the minute they touch your face. They give you a very even application & save up on the product, that you use.

WiseShe Oval Brushes by Anamika Sureka:
I, received these beauties in the mail for an exchange of an honest review.
The 3 brushes that I received were :
- Concealer Brush
- Eyebrow Filling & Shaping Brush
- Crease & Tear Duct Brush
I, honestly believe that, these oval brushes are subjective to what you feel suits you. I, have used these brushes for the above reasons and named them accordingly. What I mean by that is, what is to me a concealer brush might do you well as a Nose Contour Brush.
So, without further ado, let’s get into it.
- Concealer Brush : I loved the fact, that the concealer brush, concealed my under eyes and filled the fine lines up, in just 2 swipes. I didn’t need to do much. It also, doubles up as a cheek contour brush, for some light contouring. Hands down, my favourite one. Just look at how densely it’s packed and it left no streaks, just full coverage in 2 swipes. Bye bye mini beauty blender.
- Eyebrow Filling & Shaping Brush : This thin and finely tapered brush, is your best bet if you like filling your brows with a brow powder. If you’re more of a pomade girl, then this brush helps you shape up & clean your brow work by neatly drawing on sharp lines with a concealer. I just wish, it was a little more dense, as the product kept getting dispersed while using the brow powder.
- Crease & Tear Duct Brush : This brush is a wonder, if you’re in a hurry but would like to put on a little makeup. The round tip of the brush, helps give you a neat crease filling situation. It also doubles up as a highlighter brush for the tear ducts.
This was my makeup look, which I created using these oval brushes, by multi tasking them. The look, which was achieved using these brushes was subtle, even and great for daily wear.
Verdict : The brushes are quite good and do a fair enough job at their uses, but i would suggest that they are a little more densely packed especially the “Eyebrow Filling Brush” and have a much sturdy material for the body. They look aesthetically pleasing, but the feel when I’m holding them physically isn’t very pleasing.
My best wishes for the venture to this beautiful lady, who herself is an inspiration to many.
