1. Lip Brushes Are More Precise Than Lipstick Bullets
Lip brushes, with their little, compact brush heads, are usually a lot more precise than your average lipstick bullet, so you can place your lipstick exactly where you want it, every time. Plus, they don’t smooth and dull like a lipstick bullet after you’ve used it a few times and the tip gets all smushed and the edges melt away… Not a problem when you’re working with a lip brush.
2. Lip Brushes Waste Less Product
To get the most moolah out of your lipsticks, apply ’em with a lip brush, because when you apply a lipstick directly from the tube, little bits tend to pool and glob in and around your lip lines and other textured areas. Also, once you wear a tube of lipstick down to the nub, don’t throw it away yet! You can reach down into the bullet to get the hard-to-reach stuff with a lip brush.
3. It’s Easier to Apply Your Lipstick Evenly With a Lip Brush
Ever have trubs evenly applying your lipstick? If you do, instead of going back and forth over the same patchy places (and wasting even more product!), even everything out by brushing over your entire lip with a lip brush.
4. Lip Brushes Boost the Wear Time of Your Lipstick
It may take a little extra time to bust out a lip brush instead of just using the bullet, but you’ll make up the difference with a longer wear time. When you apply your lipstick with a lip brush, you’ll bind the product closer to your skin by really working it in, so for big events and late nights, I always use a lip brush.
5. Lip Brushes Let You Create Your Own Custom Colors
Because it’s easy to mix multiple lipsticks together (I’ll just use the back of my hand), and apply your new custom color using a lip brush.
Sometimes the hardest thing is when you create a custom color that you really like, but then later you can’t remember what you did (yes, I’ve done this myself).
