The BX-145 Mascara Fan Brush has a very interesting brush head that's difficult to describe. The Revolution BX 145 has a small (.75" wide), fan shaped brush head with chunky, uneven bristle placement. Its definitely unique - I don't have anything else like it! There are a couple splayed bristles here or there (I trimmed a few on the edge), but for the most part it keeps it's shape. Washing this brush can be a challenge - I recommending washing it ASAP after use, the drier the mascara becomes, the harder BX-145 is to clean.
Essence's Volumizing Lash Powder. Regardless of the product that you choose, the BX-145 provides a light application of product. Mascara fan brushes are great for creating a light, fluttery, separated lash look - no clumps what so ever! The best part about the BX-145? It gets right to the base of the lashes, it practically tightlines!
So how do you use this brush? It' surprisingly simple with a bit of practice. Here are some step by step instructions to get you started:
Step 2: Holding the BX-145 vertically, align the tips of the bristles with the roots of your lashes, pressing the bristles against the base of the lashes and wiggle left and right. This will establish clump free volume at the roots.
Step 3: Turn the brush horizontally, and sweep the bristles along the length of lashes, coating the lashes.
[2 coats, using above method]Royal&Langnickel's Revolution BX-145 Mascara Fan Brush is a well made tool, but it isn't the most practical one. Using this brush provides very little impact on the lashes, but it takes a fair bit of effort - at least twice as long as using a traditional mascara wand. This brush can take time to master, I hope my little walk through was helpful. If you want a quick, simple mascara application, stick to the brush that comes with your mascara, or a disposable spoolie. Leave mascara fan brushes like Royal&Langnickel's Revolution BX-145 to the pros, unless you're feeling very experimental!
