The Complexion Make-Up Brush is an soft, nylon facial brush with a round head. It is ideal for using with facial wash or exfoliant.
Nylon and taklon are the most common synthetics used in make up brushes today. Unlike natural hair, nylon and taklon do not have the scales or cuticles and hence are not so absorbent and will not trap make up media the way natural hair will. As such taklon make up brushes, which are commonly white in colour are commonly used as a concealer brush or liquid cream foundation brush as they are more effective at laying down the product. Taklon is used as a more affordable substitute for sable but lacks durability as it tends to fan out and become stiffer with use, so is less suitable for powders. Nylon is commonly used for eyebrow brushes as it is harder than taklon.
