A STROKE OF GENIUS
For the First Time in the U.S., Introducing adesign brushes’ Natrafil® Makeup Brush Collection from Anisa International & DuPont
New York, NY (March 21, 2012) — While new formulas and combinations are often tested and implemented in cosmetic products, it is rare to see true innovations in the world of cosmetic tools. However, as most makeup artists know all too well, updates to applicators can change the world of beauty and impact industry professionals and consumers alike. Enter Natrafil®, a joint effort between renowned makeup artistry tool manufacturer Anisa International and DuPont, a global science company offering innovative products and services that has revolutionized makeup brushes for years to come.
The DuPont™ Natrafil® patented technology provides the look and feel of real hair, with the added benefits of a synthetic material. The development process included taking cues from real industry professionals, beauty experts and consumers, allowing the finished product to be a direct result of the needs of the marketplace. The goal of Anisa International is to create a pipeline for customers and professionals to provide feedback for further product innovations in the future, allowing the brand to stay ahead of current trends and to truly meet the desires of those that use the product.
What are the Benefits of Natrafil®?
Sarah Perreard, Product Manager at DuPont adds, “Feedback confirms that Natrafil® facilitates the pick-up of the most difficult formulas — whether powdery, oily or liquid, for a more precise application and cleaner makeup effect, as the formula is released only upon skin contact. Natrafil® filaments are very durable, do not absorb liquids and the fibers are not damaged by cleaning, even every day, making it a material of choice for professionals and consumers alike.”
“Anisa International’s partnership with DuPont, a prestigious company with a rich, storied past, is very exciting for us because our central values are largely the same. Both businesses are dedicated to sustainability and innovation, and that is why we are bringing Natrafil® to the consumer, a product that is the first of its kind in the U.S. We hope to provide to women everywhere the high quality of makeup brushes that reflect and meet their needs,” says Anisa.
The Natrafil® Collection Product Description:
| Accent Brush|
- Used to apply highlighting and illuminating powder to brow bone and cheeks
- Versatile and can be used with powder and liquid based products
Introducing: The Concurve Brush
Made using Natrafil® fibers, the Concurve is an eye makeup brush that is actually designed for that specific purpose. Shaped expertly to fit the contours of the eyelid and brow, this brush makes makeup application easier, faster and more precise. Its patented design allows for expert eyeliner application and its shape is unlike any other brush currently on the market. Professional makeup artists agree that this is the solution that consumers have been waiting for, a true enhancement to everyday application.
- Made with 100% Natrafil® for superior pick up and deposit
- Multi-purpose brush head that can be used to create highlighting and contouring effects
to the brow bone and eyelid area
- Easy to clean, does not smudge
- Fibers were specifically chosen to pair with top industry trends in eye product formulas
- Retail Cost: $10.00
- Sold at www.adesignbrushes.com
- For basic liner application, apply product to entire surface of brush tip and press into lash
line; by using a flip technique, the liner provides application in two easy steps
- To create a liner, sweep on the outer corner of the eye, continue applying product and
then sweep product onto the outer corner of the eye
- To produce an intense smoky eye, blend liner product to the lash line and then smudge
upwards towards the crease of the eye
- For highlighting, use the tip of the brush to apply a light shadow to the brow bone
Inventor of the Concurve, professional makeup artist Christina Cole, notes: “Not only does this brush apply makeup easier and faster than what’s on the market today, it can replace up to several eye brushes, cutting your time allotted for getting ready in half. I like to pair the Concurve with the All-Over brush because it allows me to apply any foundation quickly and use the Concurve brush for more detailed work such as liner, brow highlighting, and accenting the lid or brow.”
