[unpaid/ad/sample/affiliate] I’m not even going to attempt to justify the price of Artis brushes but what I can tell you is that mine are in daily use and if I was to measure cost per use I’d have more than had my money’s worth time and time again. I’m not so much a fan of the eye brushes but for base and blush – they’re used literally every single day. I hadn’t come across the Digit Brush before – it’s primarily for applying skin care … wait.. hear me out 🙂
There’s something deeply satisfactory about applying skin care with a brush – it’s not something I’ve really thought to do before and in truth, not sure that I’d stick with because there’s a lot to be said for feeling your skin first hand every day – it’s what alerts you to changes and/or improvements with a new product.
The fibres are intensely densely packed and ultra soft which is why it feels like you’re being brushed with butterfly wings with a proprietary coating to make cleaning easy. I think there are arguments for and against whether it’s more hygienic which would largely lie with how often you are prepared to wash it (and with my foundation brush, it’s probably not as often as it should be but there haven’t been any ill effects). What I do advocate is the gentleness of it – think about how carelessly we treat our facial skin when we put products on, smooshing it around vigorously without a care in the world. I can’t think it does it any good. I think I’m more inclined to apply cream masks with a brush than actual skin care – although, you know, in those moments when it’s just the mirror and you, it’s a rather lovely, and loving, thing to do for yourself. I can only find this as part of a set for now (including brushes for eye cream, cleansing and small areas such as blemishes) at £216 HERE, non affiliate HERE, but I’ve no doubt they’ll all appear as singles in due course. To give you a ball park, other similar size brushes from this brand are around the £70 mark.
