RMS Beauty has launched two brushes back in May 2015. I have been looming the foundation one for a while as it is different from the usual flat foundation brushes: this one looks like a spiral and promises an application that mimics the one obtained with fingers.
I decided to go ahead and I am pleased that I purchased it as it does work.
The first thing that I noticed – in addition to the spiral dual fibre bristles – is that the RMS Skin2Skin Foundation brush is shorter than the conventional foundation brushes. In the picture below I compare it to the 190 by Mac. Actually the shorter handle works very well and makes it easy to manoeuvre it.
PERFORMANCE: the RMS Skin2Skin Foundation brush was designed to be used with the un-cover up. However, it works also with other types of foundations – liquid, gels, etc. I use it mainly with the un-cover up as it is my base of choice.
The application is flawless: it does not streak or deposit too much product on the skin. The bristles are soft and pleasant on the skin.
I tried also with liquid foundations and tinted moisturisers and it works as well. The bristles just absorb more product due to the texture of the foundation.
This is not the usual gimmicky tool, it actually works! The bristles vary in length and are tightly layered in a swirl pattern: this is because in this way the brush can follow the contours of the face.
INGREDIENTS: the bristles are made of synthetic fibres (vegan) and the handle is made of aluminium. The packaging that contains the brush is made of plastic, the only negative about this product.
SCENT: none. Also after having washed the bristles they do not smell.
HOW TO USE IT: I dip the brush into the un-cover up pot (no need to apply too much product). The bristles are more “concentrated” on one end and taller and less concentrated on the other. This is because the taller side helps spreading the foundation on the face and the shorter condensed one helps pushing the product into the skin.
I use the brush on my face as if I was painting (some may prefer a circular movement). The handle is shorter than the conventional foundation brushes and this makes it very easy to manoeuvre and to use.
Here is a close up of the spiral bristles from different angles.
PACKAGING: the RMS Skin2Skin foundation brush looks very sleek and elegant.
The only drawback is the plastic “pouch”, they should change it.
