Make up brushes aren’t prone to reinvention. That’s part of what makes Artis so cool. The sleek, futuristic looking brushes aren’t a gimmick; the cruelty-free tool is made from Cosmefibre, a specially engineered fiber designed to distribute and blend powders, shadows, and creams for a smooth, almost airbrushed-looking application. My favorite is the Oval 10 ($72), which packs a whopping 250,000 fibers and buffs my loose powder like a pro artist in seconds. The ergonomically designed flat brush head is easy to control and feels unbelievably soft. The biggest surprise? It doesn’t shed like so many other new brushes.
