Tom Ford Makeup Brushes
CREAM FOUNDATION BRUSH
Tom Ford’s brush collection is designed to bring ease and luxury to the process of creating your look – they make expert makeup application completely effortless.
Custom designed and developed with natural hair to be the perfect partner for the Tom Ford Traceless Foundation Stick, this brush flawlessly blends the product’s creamy texture onto skin with a seamless look and delivers the right amount of product where needed. Handle is designed for true comfort and balance.
No big surprise here, I love this foundation brush! It’s the most luxurious brush i’ve ever own, and at $70.00 it better be! But honestly, the price tag is a second thought to me now, because I will never have to buy another foundation brush…well at least not for a very long time. In fact, I will actually end up saving money since I usually end up buying two or three less expensive brushes a year, whereas with this Tom Ford brush I won’t need to purchase another for a very, very, very long time. It’s absolutely beautiful, provides flawless coverage and always reverts to its’ original condition after each and every wash.
First off, the bristles are out-of-this-world soft! You’ll find yourself running the brush across your face without any foundation, just because it feels so damn good and soft. I’m sorry I can’t tell you exactly what it’s made of, I know it’s “natural hair” but I haven’t been able to confirm what kind of natural hair that is. The front running guesses (according to web chatter) are Goat hair or Pony Hair, but whatever the hair used, it’s pure luxury at it’s finest!
The hair is very densely packed for a streak-free application, and it’s perfectly shaped to move around the contours of the face easily and evenly. There’s no smell to the hair, like you may find with some other brushes, and like I said earlier after each wash it returns to it’s original shape and pure color. The gold ferrule and handle are extremely well-made, sturdy, appropriately sized and simply gorgeous! Oh and it’s made in Japan and did I mention I love this brush!

Finally and most importantly, the finish this brush provides when used with foundation is as flawless as flawless can be. It applies the foundation so smooth, perfectly even, incredibly soft and absolutely streak-free! It’s such a time saver as well, because you really only have to apply the foundation and forget about the additional step of blending -since the brush does that for you at first swipe! However, I also use it often for blending in tinted moisturizer, liquid bronzer, just about anything I’ve applied with my hands and even powders and blushes – the results are always fantastic!
If you are willing to invest the money in what I believe to be quite possibly the best cream foundation brush ever, then I strongly suggest you give Tom Ford brushes a try – they are simply spectacular! I’m in love.
