Soft goat hair
Distributes powder evenly
When I purchased my Jane Iredale Pure Pressed Mineral Powder, I was in need of a soft brush in which to apply the powder to my face. The aesthetician recommended a Jane Iredale brush called “The Handi.”
I have found that by using the Jane Ireland Handi brush, that all cosmetic brushes are not created equal.
This is a hand-tied goat brush which is ultra-soft and made of very high quality. It measures approximately 4 .25” from the end of the wooden handle to the top of the flat top brush. The goat hair itself measures 1” in height and is flared out to a diameter of 2.0”.
The goat hair bristles grab a great amount of mineral powder, more so than a synthetic brush. It distributes the foundation evenly creating a flawless finish.
The brush is so soft that it doesn’t scratch my sensitive skin and it never sheds. It is versatile to apply not only foundation, but also a mineral blush. Its compact size makes it portable and easily fits into most any cosmetic bag.
The Handi Brush is to be swirled into the mineral powder and tapped on the end of the compact to remove any excess powder. Now the brush is ready to apply just the right amount of powder to your face. It can be brushed onto a towel after use to remove the residual powder, but it is recommended to wash the brush every week or two.
I have used only one other mineral powder brush before which was sold by Clinique. The brush was large and bulky and picked up way too much powder. The Janie Iredale Handi Brush is just the right size and applies just the right amount of powder.
I have greater control when applying mineral powder with a shorter brush making it very easy to use.
There is only one brush I would like better than the Jane Iredale Handi Brush – and that would be the Jane Iredale Retractable Handi Brush. When I purchased my brush, I didn’t realize the company also made the same brush in a retractable case that would be easier to carry in my purse. I plan to purchase the retractable brush in the future to use with my Jane Iredale Pure Matte Finish Powder so I can touch up my face when I am out and about, and use the Handi Brush with the PurePressed Mineral Powder foundation when I am at home.
The retail price of the Jane Iredale Handi Brush is $45.00. It can be purchased at select Nordstrom’s stores, through your physician’s office, or online.
Thanks for reading my review!
