I'm always on the look out for new brushes to add to my collection. I've got some from MAC, Sigma, Bobbi Brown, Zoeva and now I've ventured into L.A.B.2. This stands for Live and Breathe Beauty [uncertain about the "2"]. I love the sleek black and stylish look. Wooden handles replaced by a black rubbery stem with texture similar to NARS compacts.
The bristles are synthetic and they boast their FiberLuxe technology to provide soft and high quality filaments for precise makeup application results. I'm more of a face-and-lip makeup type of person and I've have two face brushes and one lip brush to share with you today.
L.A.B.2 Read My Lip Brush is a tiny tapered tip brush. It is quite firm to allow lip-lining. Due to its small size it takes a little bit of patience to fill in the lips with lipstick but it does the trick.
L.A.B.2 Don't Get Mad, Get Even Foundation Brush is a thin, flat, tapered tip brush. It is firm yet flexible and able to reach facial nooks and crannies. It works well with thin consistency foundations or tinted moisturisers as opposed to thick full coverage ones to minimise the streaks.
L.A.B.2 Make Me Blush Brush is a soft dome-shaped brush. I have to admit this is my favourite of the three. The bristles are quite firm, which makes it multi-use. I've used it like a buffing brush to apply foundation, and also as a blush brush to apply pops of colour on the apples of the cheeks.
Overall I do like these brushes. With a similar drugstore price point as Real Techniques brushes, I feel the latter generally have softer bristles and easier to use. Among the three, I would recommend the L.A.B.2 Make Me Blush Brush though. It's pretty spectacular...
