Highlighter Brush


  • Illuminate your alter ego. Use the Illamasqua Highlighter Brush to apply highlights to anywhere you'd like to draw attention; try it with Illuminator or Pure Pigment. Wonderfully versatile, this brush can also be used to buff Illamasqua Light Liquid or Skin Base Foundation onto the face, to create a long-lasting polished finish.

    All Illamasqua brushes are hypoallergenic and suitable for all skin types. Because we use advanced synthetic hairs instead of animal products, they're completely cruelty-free.

  • The soft synthetic bristles in all Illamasqua brushes mean they can be used with powder, cream and liquid textures.  Use shorter bristled brushes for precise, controlled colour placement, and longer bristled brushes for blending.

Love it! by Kelly H
(Posted on 08/02/2015)
I love this brush it is multi purpose and can be used for primer, foundation and highlighters. I have had mine for around 11 months now and not a single hair has shed it it definetely worth the money and I will be sure to purchase another one in the future.
Love this brush by Lyn McKenzie MUA

This is my fave brush by far. I use it to apply almost everything, foundation, highlighter, contouring - it's so versatile. I now own 3 in my kit!
So lovely but sheds so much by Amadeo
(Posted on 23/05/2014)
I really used to love this brush. It's incredibly soft, and it perfect for precisely placing highlight and blending, or more usually, buffing in foundation. However, the shedding it so bad. I'm really careful when it comes to cleaning brushes, so I don't think it's that. Last time I washed it it shed everywhere, and it regularly sheds on my face. I've only owned it for eight months, and considering the price, I find this unacceptable. I hope I just got a faulty brush, because I really like Illamasqua and I really want to continue buying their synthetic brushes.
Good by MissMagic

Whenever I was in Illamasqua, the applied everything with this brush: primer, skin base foundation, cream and powder blusher. I was impressed by the performance of this brush when the MUA used it, but wasn't feeling too comfortable with the price of the brush. So, I bought the 109 by MAC, but ended returning it, as I didn't find the blending ability of the 109 too superior, which is why I ended ordering the Highlighter Brush.

I really like the brush: it blends like a dream, the bristles are firm and densely packed. But, I do wish it was slightly wider/bigger. Now I think I should have bought the Blusher 1 Brush, which is a slightly bigger version of the HB (Sephora was out-of-stock when I wanted to order the BB1, so I ordered the HB).

I think is a beautiful brush, and if you ARE willing to pay such a hefty price: go for it! It is much better than the 109, which I've found scratchy (compared to the HB), it shed and wasn't as dense.

Best for: highlighting; precise application of powder and cream products
Good for: applying foundation (because of its size it takes more time), cream blusher (as a good stippling brush alternative, MAC 130), contouring (MAC 109), blush (for a precise and very defined application), etc.

This brush is really good quality, blends foundation and highlighter perfectly creating a really smooth, natural look. I used to just blend with my fingers before but this brush is well worth it.
My favourite for applying foundation by Axelle
(Posted on 10/07/2013)
I adore this brush! I use it to apply my foundation and it is perfect for buffing both liquid and cream foundations into a flawless finish. Well worth the investment, as I've had mine for 4 years and it is still in great shape!

100% Amazing! by Johanna
(Posted on 01/05/2013)
The ONLY brush I use to apply foundation on my skin (of course the one and only- skin base) as well as on clients. It is amazing and worth every penny! 100% recommend it!
Best Brush Ever by Dislocated-Stylist
(Posted on 03/03/2012)
People, people, people!!!! You need this brush in your life. I know that £23.50 seems a lot for a brush, please trust me when I say it isn't. The finish you get is magazine worthy especially when used with the skin base foundation and matt prima. This is a 10 star brush . ThanQ Illamasqua.
