Info: Available in Several Types
Sappho offers a full line of makeup brushes which have been manufactured with sustainable bamboo handles and taklon* bristles (*a cruelty-free, allergy-free synthetic fiber) and laboratory-tested to ensure their paints and glues are free of toxins. Their eyeshadow, crease and blush brushes are slightly flared in order to be able to take up those types of makeup and deposit them evenly, while their lip, concealer and foundation brushes have smooth ends to move liquid or creamy products smoothly and evenly. They are all easy to clean and maintain, and are designed for long-term use. Please see Notes below for individual details.
Product Notes:Brushes like these can be cleaned with a gentle hair shampoo, or an environmentally friendly dish detergent to remove oils and makeup residue. Wet the bristles with warm water; put some shampoo or dish detergent in the palm of your hand; swirl the brush in it; rinse, and repeat until clean. Be sure to lay the brushes flat (not vertically) to dry.
The Kabuki/Blush Brush is compact (about 5 inches long, altogether, and about 3/4" in diameter, with bristles about 1-1/2" long), but performs as well as larger ones. It is soft yet strong, and can be used for blush, powder foundation and bronzer.
The Crease Brush is about 5-1/2 inches long, altogether, with a circular head with bristles about 5/8" long. This is a precision brush designed to perfectly fit the crease of the eye with the strength to blend color upward and out, for making dramatic eyelids and contours. It looks somewhat like this Concealer Brush shown at the right, except with longer bristles.
The Foundation Brush is a full, tapered brush for flawlessly applying liquid foundation without streaks; its supple feel enable you to easily build layers and effortlessly move it over your skin. This brush is also 5-1/2" long altogether, with a 2-1/2" long, 1/4" diameter bamboo handle, and bristles up to 1-1/4" long, with the flat bristle head being about an inch wide and 1/4" deep.
