Review: Move From Brows To Face With HD Brows Blusher and Bronzer!
A little while ago HD Brows released a small line of makeup that don't focus on the brows at all, yes that's right they have launched Foundation, Blusher and Bronzer to go with their already cult Eyebrow products.
I received the Bronzer Number 2* and Blusher Number 2* about a month ago now and have been playing with them both pretty much on a daily basis and on one photoshoot and now I am ready to tell you what I think.
Both products are highly pigmented with a slight shimmer, a little of both of these really goes a long way. The Bronzer is especially pigmented so, if you are fair like me be very light handed. Unlike a lot of Bronzers this one doesn't have an orange payoff which I love especially due to the fairness of my skin, as I mentioned before, although, I don't think anyone wants to look like they have been rolling around in a bag of wotsits these days or am I wrong?
As for the Blusher i would say its a very deep berry pink, it reminds me of raspberry smoothies, which is shot through with some gold. I would say with this Blush stay away from Highlighter because it will be too much you just don't need to add that into the mix. I use this very lightly on my skin and it gives me that healthy flushed cheek and makes my pale skin look alive. I really cant wait to use this Blush on a woman of colour because I think it would look spectacular!
The Packaging, as you can see from the pictures, is rather nifty they have a plastic protective cover that you open to get to the product and whilst closed its the home for the latex sponge applicator that comes with both products, you also have a good sized mirror. I have to admit that for me my only gripe was the latex sponge, I would never apply either product with a sponge nor with a little blush brush but, I do think that would have been more fitting for both of these products.
At the moment there are only one shade of each product but HD Brows are correct when they say that these two products will suit any skin tone and are completely buildable. The swatches are one full swipe they can be sheered down and built up.
Both products feature in tomorrows FOTD so, you can see just how they look on :)
Would I replace both items when they hit pan? 100% Yes
Would I purchase other colours? Yes if they added to the collection I would most certainly buy them for my kit and for my own personal use.
Would I use them on a model for a shoot? I have already and they worked fantastically on camera, provided there are some decent headshots I will share these when I get them back.
Overall I am completely in love with both products, I would love to see a matte Bronzer as I personally feel matte works much better for contouring but, as an out and out Bronzer its amazing. As for the Blushers I do agree like i said earlier that this will suit all skin tones but I would love to see what other shades they could create.
You can purchase both products here The Bronzer Number 2 is £19.95 and The Blusher Number 2 is £17.95. The brand have also added a Foundation and a Brush collection which also look pretty amazing.
Have you tried the new items from HD Brows? what did you think?
