I’ve never been a makeup brush user. I have fingers and they’ve always done the job pretty well! However, recent purchases and gifts of different makeup got me thinking I should step out of my comfort zone and try new things. New year, new you right? I didn’t want to spend a lot on really nice brushes, in case I decided they weren’t for me, so when I saw these cute Flutter cosmetic brushes in Superdrug I knew they were the ones. The set includes a blusher brush, foundation brush, eyeshadow brush, lip brush and a really cute butterfly bag to keep them in, all for only £2.99 from Superdrug. The brushes are synthetic and feel really soft. I’m actually reluctant to use them because they are so cute!
I’ve just used the foundation brush and I’m amazd by what a difference there is using a brush! It’s so much easier to apply and build coverage, especially in any problem areas because you can blend it in so much easier! It also gives me a much softer, velvety finish to my foundation.
At first, I didn’t think the blusher brush picked up much blusher but when I went to apply on my face, I realised it had picked up enough to give a light glow. This is quite useful because I’d rather build up a couple of layers than look like a clown! I liked the lip brush, as it made it a lot easier to apply lipstick right to the lip line. The eyeshadow brush was alright for one eyeshadow colour, however because it’s quite thick I wouldn’t use it for smokey eyes or anything intricate.
I know to all those who are regular brush users, it is probably not that great but for me, a complete makeup brush newbie, it has introduced me nicely to the world of makeup brushes, and I’ve really enjoyed using them. I will definitely be using makeup brushes to apply my makeup in future, as it looks a lot more natural with better coverage.
