[OOTD + REVIEW] Shirt and Brushes

04 July 2010

I don't usually wear shirts but I was raiding my wardrobe and saw this shirt which I haven't worn since last summer.

Baggy, vertical striped shirt from Hong Kong
Grey hotpants from Republic
Black bandeau from New Look
Black waisted belt from New Look
Gold braided headband from Primark
Grey pearls and black bracelet from Primark
Single black beaded bracelet
Gladiator sandal wedges from New Look

From experimenting, this can be a day to night look too. To turn this to a night look, I would swap the sandals for hells and only have the bottom button of the shirt done to make it look sexy. ;)

Review: With this set, you will get: Large angled contour brush, Large powder brush, Blush brush, Replaceable sponge tip applicator, Eye shading brush, Brow comb brush, Large shader brush, Large shader, Shader brush, Mini shader brush, Duster brush, Small shader, Eyeliner, Concealer brush, Lip, Lipliner brush, Small angle brush, Flat definer, Lash brush, Square shader.

This is my first brush set I own. Since this is 20 piece, you do get a variety of different brushes for every feature of the face. The handle of each brush is wooden and contains the company name on it. The bristles are made of sable and goat hair I think. When you first use this, I thought it was slightly hard as not a lot of product was picked up. But after a few uses, more product is picked up easily, making the application easier. The application surprised me as these were cheap for a set and they are good quality. Each brush contains a protective cover and guard. The thing I dislike about this is that you may not know which brush is for what. Some are obvious while others are a bit skeptical but you can use any brush for anything in the end.

I've tried all brushes and they are all really soft on the skin. I washed these first before using them which I recommend. The bristles haven't fallen off which is a positive. Haven't experienced any shedding with them.

These brushes come in a case which I think is made out of synthetic leather and has a claspe which keeps the case closed securely. Also, the case comes with a guard on top which protects the brushes. There is also a spare clear pocket which is useful for other storage.  For the price, it's worth it. For beginners/newbie makeup artists, I would recommend this set.

  4. aww thank you sweets :) yaa haha my title was a quirky mix between sailor moon and fly me to the moon. i don't know why i like making weird titles like that xD

    i love the way you take pictures in mirror! haha you look so cute. those brushes look handy. i actually really like elf studio brushes. the whole company makes terribly cheap (and often cheap quality) makeup but their brushes are superb.

    those sandals are super stylish. i would wear them everywhere! <3
