The company is continually growing and expanding their brand. As a part of this expansion, they have reached out to several beauty influencers to spread word about their amazing products. Today, I'm happily bringing you a review of 3 of their brushes, the Pink Bambu Angled Face 990, the Studio Angled Shadow 766 and the Studio Angled Brow 763.
The Pink Bambu 990 is a pretty pink brush with synthetic bristles. It is an angled face brush that is nicely angled and domed at the same time. It is one of the softest face brush I've ever encountered. It is described as a brush that is "perfectly suited for whisking powder over the face or gently brushing off any excess."
This brush has a nice density to it that is great for applying pigmented powders. I can see why it is recommended as an all over face brush since diffuses powders really well. I actually like applying bronzer and blush. I am the type of person who can get heavy handed when it comes to applying contour powders and this is a great brush that helps give you a light handed application. If you have any pigmented blushes, this also helps diffuse the color so you won't have clown-faced cheeks. The only downside I see with this brush is that it is slightly big for my face. This would be a perfect brush for me if is slightly smaller in width. Other than that, I really have no complaints with this brush.
The Pink Bambu 990 also feature a tapered handled that makes it sip easier into a brush belt - great if you are a makeup artist who works on clients. The 990 retails for $20.
Each Studio Line brush is treated with an anti-bacterial agent. This Studio Angled Shadow 766 is a fluffy angled brush that is great for blending shadows on the crease. Since it is angled, it is great for applying eyeshadows at the outer corner of your eye in an angle.
I personally love the 766 for contouring my nose. I also like how it seamlessly blends the contour shade. As an eyeshadow brush, I like it but is not my go to since it is not small enough for my eyes. It is a bit bigger than the other angled shadow brushes that I have and since I have small eyes and smaller lid space it is a bit difficult for me to use. It is a brush that is very versatile so you can definitely use it for other things like precise contouring. The 766 retails for $8.
The Studio Angled Brow 763 is definitely a brush for applying powdered brow products. You can also use this with pomades and gel application on your brows, however I do not prefer it for that. It is slightly thicker than the angled brushes that I use for my brows and I like clean, precise application for my brow products that can only be achieved with a slimmer, finer, bristled angle brush.
I use the 763 as a smudge brush, applying eyeshadows on my lower lash line. The 763 retails for $8 which is actually quite a bargain for it's make and quality.
Brushes, although they are marketed and specifically made for a particular area of your face, can always be used in different areas of your face depending on your needs. This is what I like about makeup, since there really are no rules. There's do's and don'ts but you are still free to do whatever you like and just have fun with it. Same goes with the tools you use to apply the makeup!
I like how Bdellium Tools brushes are very versatile to use. They are also well made and low to mid-range in pricing. Whether you're a beginner or a professional, there is surely a brush for you!
