Y’know those Zoeva sets that cost a month’s food allowance and are just stunning?
They can do one.
I mean, they can do one until I’ve sorted my finances out and I can actually afford to both eat, and look attractive. #studentlife
The other day I did one of those ‘click loads of links and accidentally spend money’ things. The ones where you’re reading the news and all of a sudden you’re on ebay looking at mini fridges and fake fur headbands. This time I ended up looking at makeup brushes. This set to be precise.
Yep, that’s right. This ten piece gold and white brush set cost me a whopping, wait for it….. £4.25 including postage.
Now, I’ll be honest, I have no idea what I’m doing re:makeup and makeup brushes. Because of this I have no idea how these would hold up against heavyweights like RT and Zoeva. Quite a few of my brushes are RT though and I can honestly say that I’ve noticed no difference between them when applying my face.
One of the best things about these brushes (aside from the price, obv) is just how damn soft they are! Seriously, like so so soft. Like stroking your face with a kitten. A happy little kitten. Just imagine that.
Sadly I have no idea what these brushes actually are meant for. Obviously I can guess based on my old brushes, and their shape and stuff. I can tell that you shouldn’t use the big ones on your eyes, for example. So if anyone has any idea just hit me up because I’d really really like to know.
I’m assuming that these won’t last as long as any of the super brands, and they are definitely not as well made/put together, so if you’re a big makeup guru then I probably wouldn’t recommend them as your only brush set.
However, if you, like me, enjoy wearing makeup but aren’t a stickler for big brand quality then I highly recommend these. Seriously, at £4 I’d probably recommend them to my dad. Dad, I’m sure you can find a use for these… Cleaning or something? I’d recommend them, anyway.
Have you picked up any bargains lately?
Would you forego big brand brushes for something a little cheaper?
