Where has time gone? My nine day Thanksgiving weekend is over and tomorrow it’s December! But before the calendar hits December and I put up my November favorites, I must tell you about a brush I have been using since it arrived on my doorstep. Let’s go!
Although this brush appeared in yesterday’s posted haul, I’ve had it for over a week and I just posted the haul pretty late. Woops.
This is the BH Cosmetics #11 Highlighter Brush and it costs $3.50 on their website. (It’s actually listed as “Brush 11 – Highlighter Brush“.) I added this to my order last minute and thought it would be nice to have a brush meant for highlighting. Until now I have been using the $3 E.L.F. Fan Brush which is OK but it does not work with all highlighters.
This #11 brush is round, domed, not too dense, fluffy and soft. Not bunny rabbit soft but decently soft.
The density plus the angle of the dome really help it pick up product, even in the most tightly packed powders I own. For example, my Wet N Wild Reserve Your Cabana is a bit of a challenge for my fan brush and it barely picks up any product. As you can see above, that is no problem for #11.
As for application and blending, wonderful. I have been testing it with one of my more in-your-face highlighters and I think it does a lovely job on my cheeks, on my nose, even underneath my brows.
Since I just got this I can’t speak for it’s lifespan or tendency to shed, but it feels decent and I’m not worried about it falling apart anytime soon. I have no complaints about this brush and would definitely recommend it to someone looking for a highlighter brush.
