USING SILICONE MAKEUP BRUSHES | HIT OR MISS?!?


Whenever you’re a cat mom, and you’re covered in cat hair at all points of your life This is a mukbang You know hey guys. What is up? I literally have food in my tooth What’s up, and welcome to my channel! Today’s video is going to be testing out silicone makeup brushes So weird. I found these brushes on Amazon and they like, peaked my attention, I was just like Yeah, we’re going to film a video on those. They were actually pretty affordable Of course I’ll have a linked down below. They often seem like they could potentially be a gimmick. Is it a gimmick or is it not? I don’t know. My doorbell’s ringing. I have a delivery, I’ll be back. All righty, I just got a really cool package from benefit! If you follow me on Snapchat, you already know what that was Um, I’m all over the place. I cannot think about what I was doing because so many distractions But let’s go ahead and jump into the video, but before we do we have to sing a little jingle This is one of my new merch shirts if you haven’t gotten it, check out the link down below shop lauraleelosangeles.com Be sure and subscribe to my channel, before you leave! Subscribe! And we’ll go ahead and jump right into the video Here are our brushes, just to give you guys a visual of what we will be torquing with today They are pink and they already lowkey feel like they’re going to fall apart because if you can hear that the glue is like, kind of falling apart in them But that’s okay, ’cause they’re so affordable. I mean I didn’t really expect the world out of them I just thought the actual silicone brush part was very interesting and I wanted to film with that With that being said, I have all kinds of shapes. I think I’m going to go ahead and apply foundation with this I’m going to take my Milani pur……pur-ceal. we can put the words into one. Conceal and Perfect foundation this is shade #5 and I’m going to… I feel like I’m like a painter spackling my face I’m going to get some on the brush By doing this, oh it’s so weird. I’m going to start painting my face this feels…. you know the silicone Evie Blender that I reviewed it wasn’t my favorite but It just obviously this is a silicone brush, so it’s reminding me of that product a little bit. I will say anytime you use something That’s not a brush, the product just goes ten times longer because nothing is absorbing the product What I’m finding is I actually don’t hate this product. I actually like it better than the Evie Blender because It’s more thin and the Evie Blender kind of was like a rock I feel like on my face, as you can see it’s really bendy So I feel like it’s not as rough. My foundation is not looking too shabby like I really don’t hate this product. The only thing I will say is I feel like it tugs a little bit More than a regular makeup brush. Just because it is silicone, but look how like flawless that looks I’m kind of like okay. I’m not using quite as much product. I have to cover up this big ol’ zit on my forehead I’m so annoyed, but I’m going to be in salt water I’m just going to dunk my whole head in the ocean and be like “heal zit, heal” I think that it is a stress zit Which is well deserved because you know as soon as I do like a, all about me video “I don’t have stress anxiety” and then just dealing with a makeup line, everything can stress you out sometimes so That is my well deserved stress zit, and someone on Instagram Live the other day said we should call him Oswald So guess what? His name is Oswald the zit. Hopefully he won’t be with us for much longer Um, okay. To be honest, I don’t hate this. I actually kind of like it. Will I use it everyday? No, because nothing can replace my Y6, but I actually don’t hate the brush I feel like you got more use out your product. Now this is wasted ‘casue I didn’t know, but you know, it goes a lot longer if you can look at my skin. There’s no brush streaks It’s just pretty flawless. It was a little bit difficult getting around the nose area, but as far as the blend, I’m here for it. Next up, I have… I also have this interesting brush. I don’t really know Maybe I’ll use it for Concealer, but I’m using the Tarte Shape Tape in medium light or light medium light medi….. Oh! Light Neutral! This is not my shade, very good I’m just going to add a little bit because this stuff goes a very long way I’m going to go ahead and brighten the under eyes, as well as conceal. Do it a little down the nose And then I’m going to put a little bit on the chin to conceal as well, and I’m going to test out this one I think you can get creative with make brushes And you don’t have to always use them for what they say they are for. I typically do that And this just has that U-shape in it So I feel like it would be great for the under eye. As you can see, it like, tugs pretty hard And I know a lot of people don’t like that, and I should have thought “hello” “This is going to make your product go longer than usual, Laura” “Shouldn’t have put as much makeup” So I feel like I have on a little bit too much concealer to blend out because this isn’t absorbing any of the product, but that’s okay. Ugh, look at that! It’s getting really tacky, like, oh my gosh Let’s just keep it going. I’m going to tap now Since we are doing the under eye I will say, just because the under eye skin is so sensitive, this does feel a little bit rough and I do Prefer a makeup brush. Again the blend is flawless and it looks really pretty. It’s not as bad Like on the chin or the forehead, just because the skin on that area is not quite as sensitive and can take a little bit more of a beating, if you will But the under eye, I’m going to go ahead and not really recommend this for the under eye Just because to protect your under eye, and my zit actually hurts, and this is way too hard, and I’m like ow ow ow But the blend, girl, the blend is there. Like already, what do you guys think? I love reading your comments I love reading comments when they’re actually about the product too. Clearly this silicone product is for Not powder for more creams. But I mean for shits and giggles, I put some powder on here. Oh And I actually don’t recommend it for powder Because it picks up the powder and it like, really presses it into one area whereas the brush, i feel Or sponge, is a bit lighter, and it like really dispersed the powder. Which is what you definitely want with your powder is to be dispersed Next I have this really like swooshy angled one, and I think it could be really cool to blend out a cream contour So I have my Mac Quick Trick Stick, which is a little stick cream contour. This has been my favorite lately And we’re going to see what happens Here’s our angled friend, but I don’t know Can you hear that, like, it’s literally about to break off Snatchy-Watchy I really just want to take a sponge so bad right now, like, out of habit, and just go to town and get this blended, um I’m going to take this E 54 and go ahead and swipe away the excess powder Okay, now let’s try to continue. I mean, it’s definitely blending it, it just Honestly this takes Way more time than just a beauty blender or a brush. I don’t like it for the contour. I feel like with contour you have to be very precise to get the darkness in very certain areas and With this brush, it kind of disperses it everywhere and it’s very difficult to get it in a precise area So I actually don’t like with cream contour, and the under eye area is a little bit rough. But for actual foundation, I did like the brush. I’m g oing to take an R8 brush and just polish this look off Ow, I just hit my funny bone! It hurts so bad! Oh God. It’s the second time I’ve done this this week Next up, we have an angled brush. You guys can see, it can be used for liner or eyebrows I’m going to use it for eyebrows today because I have a liner brush on deck I’m going to dip into my Benefit BrowZings which has powder and Wax. So first I’m going to go in, it’s kind of difficult to pick up the product with the waxy side Just feeling like this is the biggest Not good thing I’ve ever done to my brows. It is so hard to Get this product dispersed with this I feel like brush hairs are the real MVP when it comes to like getting those that product in between the brow This is not an eyebrow that I’m proud of so I’m going to dip into a little bit of a powder on the angled brush No. Next we have an eyeshadow brush. This could be interesting I’m going to give it a fair shot by using a cream product with this. Obviously a powder product I mean, I already try it with the powder on my face It didn’t work out. Silicone and powder girl is just a hot-ass mess So next I’m going to go in with….. I’ve tried these out on my channel like the eye goo. This one is an oil slick Oh my gosh. Look how it picked up that product. Would you look at that? It picked up a lot of product I’m excited about that um hi. Hello. Let’s see what happens when we apply it to our…. Girl you like how i did one eyebrow. She is not committed to that brush um I actually Just adore it. This probably works 10 times better than even a synthetic brush when it comes to a Cream or eye goo like this just was a real champ I’m actually a little shooketh as to how well that just applied the Product and I feel like I didn’t waste any product because the brush is silicone Guys, I think we just found a new genius tool for our little cream products We have a win as far as foundation and cream eyeshadow products. That was really great for the other stuff it was a little bit of a struggle bus I mean normally just be fair, I will put a transition shade, but it ain’t about the transition shade today It’s about silicone brushes so we gon’ keep it at that. We’re going to wait on my eyeballs to dry, and then I have a eyeliner one Which is interesting. It looks like this, but like a little eyeliner brush with silicone So I have a gel eyeliner we’re going to test it out with. Okay, I’ve coated the brush This is an essence gel liner that I actually like a lot, it’s very affordable. And now I’m going to Go in and try to do this eyeliner. can we just not be distracted by this eyebrow? Although, I feel like I know you guys are distracted by that eyebrow Here I get…..oooh that little boo-boo right there was my mistake We’re not going to blame the brush Um I actually struggle on the struggle bus right now and I feel like the silicone for whatever reason is making the liner get really dry really quick It’s also tugging my eye so harshly that it’s really hard to get a straight line. I am going to try to wing it out Part of me feels like my product is being a turd and not the brush But I do like this liner so now i’m like what is the issue? um I feel like the silicone was so rough It was snatching up the eyeshadow a bit and making it like all chunky through there but as far as like if you were just doing Winged liner, it was a little bit more difficult, but it can be done. My makeup looks a little bit wonky But it normally does at the end of all these travel videos So, with that being said, that is the end of this video And we definitely had hits and misses. I liked it for foundation And I liked it for cream eyeshadow. For eyeliner, it was a little more challenging, but clearly it can be done It was just snatching up my eye shadow, so if you were going to do a winged liner with it, I recommend doing it without any eyeshadow down. I’m starving like Marvin so now I’m about to go eat dinner. Thank you guys so much for being with me on this video I love you guys to death! Be sure and subscribe to my channel before you leave!
