Did you know that BeautyBlender have launched makeup brushes? Not just any makeup brushes either, the BeautyBlender Big Boss Powder Brush and Cooling Roller is a crazy £52, and that’s just one single brush in the collection.
When I saw the price this brush, I assumed it had to be a typo as a BeautyBlender makeup brush couldn’t possibly cost over £52 but it’s not a typo. It genuinely costs £52 which blows my mind.
BeautyBlender Big Boss Powder Brush and Cooling Roller
The BeautyBlender Big Boss Powder Brush and Cooling Roller is described as being the double-ended powder brush that never makes you look overdone. With an innovative cooling rollerball tip that works to sculpt and depuff before makeup application.
The brush features cruelty-free synthetic bristles that mimic real hair and offer an unbelievably soft touch. The full fluffy head has the ideal density to deliver a soft, diffused powder application that never looks heavy-handed or cakey.
Created by celebrated Hollywood make up artist (and general genius!) Rea Ann Silva, the Beautyblender make up sponge lends a flawless, airbrushed finish to any complexion.
Cementing its position as an insider essential by bagging all of the prestigious beauty awards, Beautyblender is a firm make up pro-favourite.
Making the next step in their mission for total tool takeover, meet The Detailers: a five piece collection of dual-function brushes to perfect your complexion artistry.
After moisturising skin, roll the metal tip from the inner area of the face out to the edges, focusing under cheekbones, jawline and forehead. Then, apply powder to the tip of the bristles (tap off any excess) and sweep across your complexion.
The BeautyBlender Big Boss Powder Brush and Cooling Roller is £52 from Cult Beauty, and is just one brush from a collection of five.
This brush is dual ended, in that one end of the brush has a large, fluffy powder brush and the end of the brush features a silver, metallic ‘egg’.
The brush works to apply powder just like any other powder brush, but the egg side of the brush is designed to be used as a massage tool to de-puff and cool the under eye area.
Under eye rollers are very effective at de-puffing the skin around the eyes, and they do have a soothing effect. However, to me it feels so random and strange to put a rollerball on a powder brush.
You would need to use the roller within your skincare routine, and powder is usually one of the last steps within a makeup routine. It would surely make more sense to put a rollerball on a skincare device, or something to do with primer.
Even with the rollerball, there’s absolutely nothing about it that warrants this BeautyBlender Big Boss Powder Brush having a £52 price tag. It isn’t a couture brush. It’s just a synthetic powder brush you could purchase for £10 from Real Techniques.
This BeautyBlender Big Boss Powder Brush is the most expensive in the collection, but the other four are priced between £19 and £26, and in my opinion, they’re just not worth it. You’d be better off purchasing an eye roller for under £3 from eBay and it would do the exact same thing.
