"A good brush is really an investment," says Gucci, reflecting on a new limited edition collection of makeup tools debuting exclusively on Westman-Atelier.com today. That's because The Brush Collection, conceived as a 7-piece "wardrobe" of her favorite essentials, works the same transformative magic as a beautifully made jacket or shoe. "The quality is so high, the performance is so seamless, you feel different when you wear it or use it—and it's going to last."
Handcrafted by the oldest brush makers in the world, each brush is created in Japan using cruelty-free synthetic bristles and FSC-certified sustainable birchwood. "I wanted the handles to be a little shorter for more control and ease," explains Gucci, who also chose soft, pristine ivory-colored bristles for the foundation, powder, blending, and eye shadow brushes, "so you'll always know when to clean them." The one exception? "Our lip brush!" she explains, holding up a slender black tipped wand, which can be dipped into the highly pigmented shades inside the Lip Suede palette without permanently picking up their vibrant color.
The complete brush set, which arrives in a chic and sturdy paperboard canister that sits perfectly on a vanity or inside a suitcase, may provide one more critical function: "It's the most beautiful gift," says Gucci. That impossible-to-shop-for-someone on your holiday list? Consider the situation sorted.
