Ambika Pillai Blush Brush Review


Hi All,

For a blush crazy gal like me, it’s imperative to have the right tools for application. I have brushes from Bare Escentuals, Oriflame, Vega, Bourjois, etc but the best I have used till date is this one from Ambika Pillai. I don’t have a MAC or Sigma yet so can’t compare this to them but I can assure you that this brush does rise to the competition with aplomb!

My experience with the Ambika Pillai Blush Brush:-


  • Bristle Texture: The bristles are synthetic and really soft albeit not fluffy. Not at all rough or abrasive. I had picked us a Bare Essentials brush online infact and that was sooo horrible… Using it was like torturing myself.. This is perfect.
  • Bristle Quality (Bleeding & Shedding): Apart from the initial wash wherein 2-3 strands shed, there was no subsequent shedding or bleeding.
  • Washing & Drying: Takes about half a day to dry which is quite convenient.
  • Handling: The handle is a long and chubby and easy to control.

What I love about this brush is the shape. The bristles rounded and fits right into my cheek area. Hence,there is no risk of getting the blush color all over the place. Blending is easy with this brush as well and I can blend out any harsh lines. However buffing not as easy with this blush. It does take some effort and I’d rather use a buffer/ powder brush instead.
