Louise Young Super Foundation Brush- LY34

Anyone who is a fan of Pixiwoo, will no doubt have heard of Louise young. Her brushes are favoured by countless professionals, as they are extremely innovative, and well, work bloody great!  Not only are they excellent quality, but they are also reasonably priced; if compared to say Suqqu. 

The brush I am going to discuss with you today; is possibly the most unique of the range. With its distinctive dome shape; it epitomizes the foundation brush of my dreams.  This is of course the Super Foundation brush or LY34. I love brushes such as the Mac 190; the traditional foundation brush. However such brushes can be a real hassle to use. They can apply streaky if you’re not 100%  focused, and are a pain to clean. 

(My counter top is not as dusty as it seems! bloody camera picks up every speck!) 

This brush embodies all the characteristics of the traditional foundation brush, with one major difference; it’s shape. The dome is firm if pressed, yet soft if moved in circular motions. making it the ideal brush for both application and blending, a feat that is often lacking in the majority of brushes these days.

(Having a dust crisis, should I upload? haha I hate black furniture!) 

(who needs a macro lens.... I hate it! show the brush, not the dust!)

This brush allows you to blend your foundation effortlessly, making it ideal for early morning starts; or simply us lazy girls! This brush is also synthetic making it generous with your product; no slurped up foundation here!  This is a fantastic brush, with many possible uses, such as cream blusher; or bronzer. Over the last week, I have put aside my stippling brushes, instead opting for this exquisite brush every day. The finish it creates is just fantastic, and so easily achieved. This is definitely worth a try, if you’re in the market for a new foundation applicator, or simply the best foundation brush I have ever tried.

Thanks for reading, 


  1. Wow! Excellent Review, Lucy! I actually have given up on foundation brushes simply because of the streakiness they cause! I rarely use foundation but when I do, I don't want anyone to know.

    I usually just apply with my hands now, warming the product with my (clean) fingers and then smoothing it on like a moisturizer. It's been working so far, but I'm a try-everything junkie and have been known to stray from the tried and true simply because the packaging is so nice lol

    Have a great one! x http://xNTA.blogspot.com/
