I knew it was only a matter of time before I caved and got a Tom Ford brush. I had to see what the fuss was about. I have quite a few blush brushes already so I decided a foundation brush would be a good addition to my arsenal. I love having more foundation brushes, that way I ca hold off washing them just a wee bit longer.
After washing, you can see that the bristles are poofier and fluffier. It did not shed during washing.
The bronzer brush isn't mine but I got permission from Miaka of Miaka's Life and Loves to play with it. As you can see it is much bigger than the cream foundation brush. The bronzer brush costs US $115 (omg!) and the cream foundation brush costs USD $72.
Aren't they cute side by side?
Anyway, it doesn't say what kind of bristles they are just natural bristles so I suspect they are goat hair.
My Koyudo Fu Pa has more bounce so I literally can feel how dense it is when I use it. Whereas the Tom Ford brush is very soft. It gives a wonderful natural application. I dab my foundation onto my face and use the brush to buff it onto my skin. That way I don't waste foundation.
I like both of them very much, Tom Ford brushes are a real splurge and I feel that it is not a necessity. If you want a great natural bristle brush that is well made, a Koyudo Fu Pa is a better buy. That being said, the snob in me doesn't do regret one bit that I bought it.
