The unique brush had made appearances in several of his previous lip product try-on videos, and while it was never the intended focus, it still stole the spotlight for its ability to blend out every lippie smoothly and effortlessly.

Another reviewer compared it to a regular lip brush with bristles in her video, demonstrating that you’ll be able to achieve a much more even colour distribution with it.

Beyond that, it also leaves behind a superior colour payoff, as silicone tends not to absorb as much product as other materials would.

Less product wastage = more money saved. What’s there not to like?

They’re more hygienic, and much easier to clean too

Unlike typical brushes, silicones are also much more resistant to bacteria, germs and product buildup. In fact, the silicone cleansing brush brand, Foreo, found that it’s a whopping 35 times more hygienic than conventional nylon brushes.

Due to silicone being non-porous, you can simply run the lip brush under the tap right after you’re done using it, and it’ll be as good as new every time.

The silicone lip brush retails for RM10.01 on Shopee, though it’s on sale for less than RM4 at the time of writing. Click in to check the promotion price!
