Happy Monday loves! For a couple of months I’ve been testing out Artis brushes to see what all the hype is about. I purchased the oval 6 and oval 4.
If you haven’t heard about the Artis brushes, they are supposed to be one of the best makeup tools on the market. They are super densely packed and incredibly soft. Every artist in the world seems to be raving that these brushes blend all makeup perfectly into the skin without any effort.

I’ve been using the Oval 6 to apply foundation for over two months and I actually really enjoy it. I use a lot less of my foundation because the brush doesn’t soak in any of the product. It feels very different on the skin than any other brush I’ve ever owned.
It easily blends in my foundation and I like how simple it is to just smooth over your face without worrying about thorough blending because it does most of the work for you. I have had some brush strokes left on my face which bothers me for how much I paid for the brush. Another annoyance I have with the brush is that the handle doesn’t feel stable. I’m always worried that the spot where the brush head meets the handle is going to snap. I wish the quality of the structure was better for how expensive the brush is.
I bought two of the oval 4 brushes because I thought it would be perfect for cream contouring. I am extremely disappointed with the oval 4 brushes. I don’t know why this size is so different from the 6 but it is.
Every time I have used it to apply product I have had to use the 6 to go back in a reblend everything. The 4 is horrible at blending in product and just leaves it sitting on top of the skin unable to move. I will still use it to apply the cream contour but I would never recommend for someone to spend this much money on this brush.
I think the oval 6 brush is worth considering and that the price could be made up in the amount of foundation you save everyday you use the brush. I would strongly recommend staying away from the oval 4 and saving your money.
Although I am liking my oval 6, the My Makeup Brush Set that is supposed to be a dupe for artis brushes is on its way and I will have a blog post soon on whether the set of 10 brushes that retails for $40 is comparable to the brushes that are almost all over $40 individually.
As always please recommend any other products you would like to see me test out! Don’t forget to subscribe to my blog on the right hand side of the page, so you receive updates when I post. Thanks for all the love & support. Talk to you monday, loves.
