With the idea of finding a dupe for the Rae Morris Radiance, I ordered this Facial brush (link shared by Mimi). It looked very interesting in the picture and the price was reasonable.
I quote the description :
Classic, traditional brush used by Japanese geishas, maikos and oirans for centuries to apply and create their stunning, porcelain-like facials.
Use the soft, dense hairs to apply, pack, smooth and wipe away excess paste or powder. The unique shape let’s you create and blend broad contours with ease and precision.
They got the width absolutely right, the wood is lovely too.
I don’t find the hair that soft at all, it’s goat hair, dense but has a “straw-like” feeling to it, I never owned a goat brush that felt like this, it feels more enduring, I don’t even want to try to apply foundation with it because my skin will not love that at all. But, as mentioned in the description, this brush is meant for geisha make up application, which is more liquid, rough, you will not go for a flawless airbrushed finish but for a thick-ish white base application.
You can have a look at these two videos, this brush may be featured in the first one :
This is not a soft foundation brush but something more appropriate for Geisha makeup tutorials, who knows, maybe one day I can experiment that tutorial on a friend.. 🙂
Same idea but totally different brushes :
Same width, not same soft feeling :
I hope this helps… probably the Rae Morris Radiance will remain unique for quite a while…
