A girl can never have too many brushes! Yes, this is coming from a makeup junkie/hoarder. However, the right set of tools can really transform your look! That’s why I love experimenting with new brands and brush shapes. I took a chance on the Sonia Kashuk Pointed Foundation Brush years ago and I don’t regret it one bit!

When I first started learning about the magical world of highlighting and contouring I went nuts over it. I was obsessed with the finding the perfect products to give my face a sleek, sculpted appearance. The Pointed Foundation Brush was one of the first brushes I’ve tried and it’s still a staple in my routine years later! It has a small, tapered shape that’s perfect for applying and blending products into the smallest nooks and crannies.

The Pointed Foundation Brush is part of Sonia Kashuk’s Core Tools line and features synthetic bristles. It’s quite soft to the touch and it works well with powders, creams and liquids. The bristles are firm without feeling hard or scratchy against the skin and picks up product very well. Although it was made for foundation I love using the Pointed Foundation Brush to contour and apply concealer. It’ll definitely work well with foundation but the brush head is so small that it might take a bit more time to apply on bigger faces. I find it to be better for the smaller areas of the face like under the eyes, hollows of the cheeks and along the nose.

I’ve always been a fan of Sonia Kashuk brushes because they’re such great quality and the Pointed Foundation Brush doesn’t disappoint. It’s very well made with a white plastic handle and silver ferrule that feels pretty solid. I’ve had it for about 2 years and I haven’t experienced any quality issues. The handle is still solidly in tact and I haven’t noticed much shedding at all.┬áThe Pointed Foundation Brush also manages to keep its unique shape after every wash. It’s a really nice brush! I do think it’s a little pricey ($13) to come from the Target beauty aisles but it rivals department beauty quality so I can’t complain. I recommend checking out┬áSonia Kashuk Pointed Foundation Brush the next time you’re bopping around Target. It’s a great buy!
