Beauty Review: RAW Natural Beauty Blush / Shaping Brush

It doesn’t matter if you  have good makeup. If you don’t have a good brush to apply it with, you’re still not going to end up with a great look. Those are just the facts.

In my quest for a good blush brush, I came upon the RAW Natural Beauty Blush / Shaping Brush, from the makers of RAW Minerals. It comes in the Native Essence Kit, or you can buy it separately.

How big is the brush?

The brush head for the blush / shaping brush is rather large. It’s about an inch wide at the base of the bristles and about an inch and a half wide at the crown. The bristles are about an inch an a half long.

This large size makes the brush perfect for applying blush, bronzer or translucent face powder.

  1. I’m glad this brush works well for you. I just have too many blush brushes at this point but it’s nice to know there’s a new and reliable brush out there 🙂

  2. Oh I want this so bad! Too bad it wasn’t in stores, I would love to try it.

  3. Dao: Yeah, I definitely don’t have the problem of too many brushes. I usually find one and stick with it. I mean, I only have a few eye shadow brushes, which is pretty much unheardof in the beauty blogging community.

  4. Patricia M: Yeah, I looked and I don’t think RAW Minerals products are sold in any brick and mortar stores. It’s a shame, it really is.
