Although Burberry Beauty Brush No. 2 (price not yet determined) is not yet for sale, I was able to obtain one during the last Holiday season when Nordstrom had a gift with purchase that included this lovely, incredible brush.  This is an unbelievable powder brush.  It’s dense, it’s luxurious, and it works.   It’s absolutely perfect for either a light dusting of setting powder, or a very soft application of bronzer or blush on pale skin.

The handle is substantial without being too heavy.  It’s held up beautifully through weekly (or more) washings for the past five months.  I had no lost bristles, it dries perfectly overnight.

Is “brush-gasm” a word?  Like Chanel’s Euro face powder brush (reviewed here), Burberry Face Brush No. 2 has a wide, flat side that contours beautifully to the face.

Turn the brush sideways, and you will see that the top of the bristles narrow down to a chisel in a way that allows a very light application of powder.

I found a number of similarities between the Burberry Face Brush No. 2 and Chanel Flat Powder Brush #3 (Pinceau Poudre Flat). Here is a side-by-side:

Bottom line:  Highly recommended.

  1. Beautiful. I remember you mentioning that they would produce brushes for sale some time ago. You have actually reminded me that I have often spotted the Chanel whilst online browsing. I will have a read of your review now!

  2. that’s awesome. I wanted to wait to buy the chanel euro powder brush but I think I can do with the burberry. Are they similar in terms of feel? Would you recommend one over the other?

    • They are quite similar. I believe that Chanel is re-doing all of the European brushes and so it will no longer be sold. I’d go with the Burberry purely based on availability.

  3. Are these your new favorite brushes?

  4. I can defiantly see that the burberry brushes have more bristles and are more plump. Have you used sigma brushes?

  5. “Brush-gasm”! That’s just too funny 😀 But I know what you mean, Amy. Good brushes are a pleasure to use and make a huge difference in application. They also feel so good sweeping across the skin. Ummmm…… After reading your review about the eye brushes, I ordered a number 10 and am really looking forward to receiving it. It will be my first Burberry brush.
