Hello beautiful people!
Today’s post is all about the wonderful make up brushes from http://www.makeupbrushes.co.uk
When I first heard about these guys I instantly fell in love with the website. They host a whole load of different brands in the same place so you can mix and match your brushes In one simple place. Having not heard of some of the brands before I was more than excited to try some of them out. I chose to go with So Eco and Japonesque.
First up is the So Eco finishing brush*.
Now, this lightweight brush is one of the softest things I’ve ever used. The double length cut bristles are like tiny little feathers against my face. Honestly I just sat stroking my face like a crazy person with this before I used it, it’s that soft. The brush itself suggests you use it with blusher to finish your look however if you’re like myself and have a somewhat smaller face this brush may swamp the size of your cheeks. That’s why I’ve chosen to use it with my finishing powder. It just helps it glide on effortlessly.
What would I rate this products out of 10? 7/10 soft, easy to use but for a different intention so I cannot give it 10.
Next up the Japonesque Kumadorie fan brush*.
Ok this item is cool. It’s as light as a feather and the almost cord like feel the handle gives off makes the brush feel more like a wand than anything else. It’s easy to grip because of the intricatly designed handle and the bristles catch the perfect amount of product when applying. I’d honestly never had a fan brush before now and I will not be turning back, as someone who loves a good highlighter I can’t even begin to imagine how wrong I was applying it before this brush, it really helps a little go a long way and creates more precise application.
I’d give this product a solid 9/10 (though i adore the design, the handle did feel funny for the fist couple of uses)
Finally back to So Eco* for this last set.
First I must say I love that it arrived in a little press stud bag. This makes for easy travel. The set contains 5 brushes which are;
I’m going to say I love the variation you’re getting with this bundle, they have thought about the whole eye area and not just the lids, for example, the eyebrow comb vs the mascara wand. It’s about a lot more than just eyeshadow with this set.
The fineliner brush is a thin brush almost like a lip liner, I used this to add a dark outline around the eye. The brush held the product well but I did go over it in eyeliner. I’m just not sure if I’ll get much use out of this brush using it solely for its intended purpose but I will use it more for creating cut crease eye looks.
The eyebrow comb is my favourite if you’ve seen my face you will be able to tell, I put a lot of time into my eyebrows. I love combing them, shaping them, filling them in. This brush just makes that so much easier!
The angled eyeliner brush, again another brush I have changed the purpose of, I use this one to fill in my brows! I just love the straight angled line it can create.
Finally the mascara wand I used with my mascara primer to separate the lashes before applying mascara.
Out of ten I give this bundle 10! Despite changing some of the uses, I adore the different applicators!
I over the moon with my brushes and I think I’m going to love these the more I use them.
