Smashbox Telephoto 3-in-1 Face Brush
For someone who is not a makeup professional, using the right brushes can be a daunting task and it’s easy to get sucked into getting lots of different brushes and never getting to use all of them. As part of my Sephora haul, I picked up this 3-in-1 face brush as I was in the market for a retractable travel face brush as my last one was a little worse for wear and the hair was starting to fall out from the brush.
In terms of packaging, the brush is housed in a nice metal case where you would twist and click the brush into place to get the right coverage: once for a dense brush that is great for buffing and blending (full coverage), twice for a looser brush (medium coverage) and thrice for a full fluffy brush that’s perfect for dusting/finishing off your makeup with a loose powder (light coverage). The brush(es) did what it was supposed to do and I’m definitely bringing this along in my travel kit to eliminate at least two to three other brushes that I would otherwise have to bring.
I chose this brush because I got three different brushes all in one convenient and snazzy tube that is travel- and user-friendly, regardless of your makeup skills. From light dusting to full coverage, I tried this brush out with various face powders and foundations as well as bronzer and blush to try out the coverage and effectiveness of this product. Since I use this brush for a variety of products, it’s important to keep it clean; I would suggest washing the brush every two weeks with a baby shampoo/proper brush cleanser if using to apply powder, or every week if using to apply liquid foundation.
All in all, I would definitely pop out and give this brush a shot if you’re looking to minimize your travel makeup gear or you’re looking for a great brush from a solid brand to add to your arsenal as either a beginner or professional <3
