I dislike heavy makeup in the summer heat. I don’t like it any time of year, but when it is hot and sticky, adding multiple cakey layers of product feels and looks overdone.
So I was happy to try the new Michael Todd Beauty sonicBLEND Makeup Brush. It is among the new crop of USB rechargeable beauty tools that have become popular and being able to charge multiple gadgets at once with a good multi-prong USB charger is incredibly easy, so I like that feature. It charges up relatively fast the first time you use it, and it is ready to go. One charge has lasted me ten days, and it doesn’t seem to be slowing down.
The sonicBLEND handles multiple types of makeup: liquid, cream, or powder. The brush is incredibly soft, but product distributes evenly on the brush. I have had a hard time finding a foundation makeup brush that I really like lately, so I’m really enjoying this one.
Once you turn the brush on, it vibrates almost imperceptibly, like a sonic toothbrush. However, these little vibrations smooth makeup onto and into your skin with incredible evenness and control. It gives full coverage for concealer and foundation in a very thin coat, so your skin shines through while still getting coverage. I like using it with mineral powder foundation: it leaves the right amount of product that doesn’t cake up later in the day. It’s almost goof-proof.
A nice bonus of the sonic technology is that it helps deflate undereye puffiness when applying concealer. It’s a great way to take a step out of my morning routine!
The button takes a little bit of pressure to turn on or adjust the settings, but I appreciate that so it doesn’t turn on randomly when it’s in my purse. It is a sturdy gadget that is a definite go-to for applying multiple kinds of products with a sheer, even look.
