13rushes Universal Do-It-All Face Brush, $39.90
Homegrown makeup brushes manufacturer 13rushes collaborates with makeup artist Larry Yeo to develop this seven-in-one brush which can be used for all types of products including primer, foundation, BB, bronzer, finishing powder as well as sunscreen. Two years and 15 prototypes later, they finally perfected the density and shape of Universal Do-It-All Face brush. It is specifically shaped to ensure even distribution of any product while the slightly angled bristles fit every contour of the face, making it super easy for brushing from whichever angle without worry of streaking or an uneven finish.
Dr TWL Dermaceuticals Skincare

Another power molecule used in this line is the oligopeptide molecule which is used to substitute retinol.
