I’m sure any of you makeup aficionados have seen these brushes circulating. These makeup brushes seem to be all the rage now because of the Photoshop-esque effect they manage to create when you apply your makeup, but you may also end up paying a pretty penny for a set of them.
However, you don’t have to! Primark are now selling these toothbrush shaped brushes for a price that anyone would be silly to argue with. Now I know what you’re thinking, surely they’ve compromised on the quality? They can’t be as good as the more expensive ones? But I am here to tell you that I think they’re exactly the same.
I picked up two of these brushes which only set me back £6.50 and I’ve tried them out so I can give you my honest opinion.
I used the large one to apply my foundation and I’ve never seen my foundation look so smooth. The bristles are super soft and gentle on the skin and they buff out the product really well and really evenly without any of the brush hairs falling out of the brush like so often happens with cheaper brushes. When you take away the brush from the skin, you cannot see any product left visible on the brush and the control the shape of the brush gives you is great. I use the smaller one to blend out my contour colour. It works exactly like a beauty blender. One drop of water and it blends out cream colours beautifully. It’s a lot more precise and quicker than a beauty blender. I can quite easily say, I’m converted.
So if you’re like me and can’t afford to splash out on the expensive sets all the pros have, you really don’t need to. Get down to Primark and nab yourself a few of these.
