USpicy 10 Piece Makeup Brushes Set: £14.99*
WHITE & GOLD
Soft, very soft synthetic bristles, a good start to this brush set. This looks like it could be a duo fibre collection due to the look of the bristles but they're not. When it had arrived on my doorstep, I thought these would have the very cheap feel to them but I would say they're above average, definitely sturdy. However I did find a crack on one of the brush handles. The set consists of tapered, round, flat, flat angled, angled brushes for the face and the smaller versions of each, which they call precision brushes suited for the face and eye area. There was a plastic, chemical odour but it disappears after it's been washed, with no shedding.
I found the precision brushes a tad big for me to use on my eyes but they work great on the smaller, hard to reach places of the face. The precision tapered brush is my favourite out of the set. I use this to spot conceal and to reach the harder places. This would also be great to contour the nose. Any of the other precision brushes can be used for highlighting and many other purposes except for the eyes.
I find the handles of the larger brushes a tad chunky for my liking. Each large brush is densely packed, making it easy to blend liquid, cream and powder based products. Not all brushes are suited for powder products. My face base looks great and didn't irritate my skin. I'm not 100% completely sold on this set yet as I still reach for my other brushes but it's still a great set to have.
This set would be better if there was a variety of brushes for each part of the face as I was disappointed that there wasn't any suited for the eye. A leaflet was included, telling you which gives you guidance as to which brush is used for what as well as how to maintain it. These are currently £14.99 on Amazon which would be great for either a novice or experienced user as long as you don't mind the "face only" uses. This would make a great present as they are presented beautifully in a gift box.
