For the last few months, I’ve been using my Victoria’s Secret small case as a solution for transporting my make up brushes from country to country. Although the perfect size, it isn’t the greatest for some of my larger brushes and with that in mind, I have to be quite selective on what brushes I take on my travels. For example, my giant Marc Jacobs The Bronzer and Sephora Pro Airbrush brushes have to be left at home. A few weeks ago, I wrote a post on the newest venture from Rodial; The Mrs Rodial Project, where Maria Hatzistefanis went selected several students from the Central Saint Martins College to design a brush holder that fit with the Rodial brand for the 2015 Rodial Art and Design Challenge. I’ve managed to get my hands on the winning design and I’m so excited to show you my new Rodial x Aaron Chung Brush Case.
The Rodial x Aaron Chung Brush Case is a stylish, yet unbelievably practical six sleeve brush case made from imitation leather with silver detailing that can hold up to 12 of my favourite and larger make up brushes. When travelling, I need a good selection of brushes that can either be multi used or have a back up in case of dark make up looks, so I am so pleased that I can get at least three MAC 239s in one holder. The brush roll is designed to roll up and take up minimal space, which to me isn’t an issue when abroad, but whilst at home, I am glad of a suitable storage place. Each section can be detached, meaning that lone brushes can be gently placed in your handbag without any damage to their soft bristles. The roll is secured with a leather strap proudly displaying the Rodial R logo in a brighy silver metal whilst the smaller details do the taking; Rodial stamped tags on the shiniest silver zips.
The edgy design is very en trend, whilst being so practical that you wouldn’t be concerned about just how much the brush roll is – £100 to be exact. For a new designer on the block, Aaron Chung has designed a product that even I am proud of. The display box that the brush roll comes in screams that this is more than your average brush roll and when I first received this, I actually squealed at the exquisitness that it displays from capturing the first look at it.
I couldn’t be any happier with my Rodial x Aaron Chung Brush Case, and I am so glad that I now have this in my life. Sure, it’s an investment, but with even my day to day make up brushes coming in at around £300, I want a nice case to keep them secure and free from damage.
The Rodial x Aaron Chung Brush Case is available exclusively from Harvey Nichols and Rodial.
