Ambika Pillai Contour Brush Review


Hi All,

Ambika Pillai brushes have weaned their way onto my vanity. Of all the brushes I have, these AP brushes are the most used ones. I have already reviewed a couple of the brushes from this range and thought of reviewing this after Vish asked about a good contour brush to use, I immediately thought of reviewing this one.


Read Ambika Pillai Blush Brush, Konad Foundation Brush and Ambika Pillai Pick Me Up Lipgloss reviews.

About the Ambika Pillai Contour Brush:-

Compact and angular this brush helps contour the cheeks to give elegant high cheek bones.

  • Price: INR 500

My experience with the Ambika Pillai Contour Brush:-


  • Bristle Texture: The bristles are synthetic and gathered together with an angle tip which makes it easy to contour.
  • Bristle Quality (Bleeding & Shedding): It did bleed a little n the first wash but not after that. Shedding is to a minimum and after about 4washes it stopped altogether.
  • Washing & Drying: Takes about 1day to dry completely.
  • Handling: The handle is a long and chubby and easy to control. That’s wot I like best about this brush. It’s easy to hold this brush and angle it correctly. And it blends and buff well too without any problem. Usually brushes with such gathered bristles are not that gr8 for blending but this does the job very well.

    • Nopes.. Never tried them.. I had tried a friends Audrey powder brush and found it a bit rough.. S assumed all were the same and stayed away.. They have a contouring brush Chris?

  5. I am a bit against this Zara…I didnt like the AP brushes I saw…They were not at all soft when compared to some of the brushes in the same range like NYX and Sigma…Its nice but has some horrid smell that could also be a chemical toxic to ur skin and trust me these are made in bulk in some remote Chinese companies which carry fake certificates and also use products right from human urine (true) to potential carcinogenic chemicals to treat these products and includes brushes too. So be careful of the make!
    A brush maybe expensive but it lasts forever!!

    • ooh! u dint find them soft?? i loved how soft they r actually…i have like 3-4 brushes and have bin using them for a year now and havent had a bad exp wid any of them..but i d agree that some of the chinese brands may have a questionnable make…shud be careful f them…and damn! i had no idea urine could be used for brush making! Ewwww! how gross is that!

      btw, i hav ordered my first Sigma’s!!! yeyyy!!! cant wait for them to arrive ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚
