Is mom crazy for cosmetics? Get her the Artis Elite Collection Linear 1 Brush for Mother’s Day.

Artis Linear 1 BrushI think some addictions are handed down, or even genetic. If you read this blog you are probably a bit of a cosmetics junkie, which means your mom just might be too…and if that’s the case, you’ll want to get her something really cool from the cosmetics world for Mother’s Day. My suggestion? An Artis makeup brush.

I was definitely intimidated by the Artis brushes at first. I didn’t even want to try them because they looked so professional, so arty, so cool…way too cool for me. But then I read Olivia’s posts about these brushes on The Unknown Beauty Blog and my curiosity grew larger than my insecurities.

I’ve only tried one of the brushes, the Elite Collection Smoke Finish Linear 1 Brush ($35). All I have to say is OH EM GEE. This is a freaking fantastic brush! The rubberized handle is substantial and is ergonomically perfect for your hand. The brush is firm but soft, so it creates a PERFECT smokey line with no drag and no painful friction. It lines upper and lower lids with ease. I also love it for my brows – I just use an eyeshadow that is one shade lighter than my brows, and the brush gives such a beautiful blend while also brushing brows upward. If that isn’t awesome enough, it’s a fantastic lip brush too.  This brush does everything but wash windows.

I am asking for every single other Artis brush for Mother’s Day now. I know your mom will love this one, and you will too, so do a ‘one for you, one for me’ thing and you will be thanking me for years to come.  – Lisa

  1. The Artis brushes are on my wish list. I hope I get to try them someday!

  2. I love Artis brushes. They’re so fancy!

  3. My Mum is certainly crazy for cosmetics (and has more products than I do) but she gave me the Artis brushes for Christmas!

  4. They even look soft in your pics! It’s funny that you said you thought they were too cool for you, because I thought the same exact thing! I really need some of these soon–if you’re cool enough so am I! LOL

  5. I sooo want to try these brushes!

  6. My mom would have zero interest in this, but I on the other hand, WANT it! It looks so soft too.

  7. I really want to try these brushes. They look interesting enough, and I’ve heard people have achieved flawless results from using them. I wouldn’t mind getting a few for mother’s day.

  8. The Linear brushes are one of the most useful brushes in the line. You don’t need those fancy templates to create those winged eyeliner looks or any fancy eyeliner look. Yes, great for that smudgy smoky look too.

    I agree with all that you use it for, don’t forget it draws great cat whiskers! ?

    By the way, thanks for the mention.??

  9. I think I need to give this a try!

  10. I adore this brush! It really does deliver the perfect smokey eye.

  11. The Artis brushes are on my wish list. I am dying to try them.

  14. I just got a bunch of new brushes a month ago but these sound soooo good.
