Ask Osmosis :: What are the Osmosis Colour Make Up Brushes made of?
Our Angled Blush and Oval Shadow brushes consist of Pony hair. They are little firmer to allow more even and smooth application of richly pigmented powder formulas.
The Contour Shadow brush is a combination of Squirrel and Pony hair. The squirrel hair quality adds softness to the brush especially when used on the delicate eye crease area.
The Eye liner/Brow brush is a Synthetic Bronze nylon. This makes them resistant to cream or waxes and less prone to damage from makeup solvents.
The Foundation Base Powder, Dome Powder and Kabuki brushes consist of Synthetic Capra (Goat) hair. They are better suited for soft layering of mineral powder foundation colors and are easier to keep clean than natural hair bristles because the filaments don't trap or absorb pigment.
The Retractable brush consists of Badger hair bristles. Badger hair is usually coarser at the top and thinner at the bottom. This is why our Retractable brush can pick up and hold powder better to take with you, for touch ups, wherever you go.
