If you have been looking for a set of decent but affordable makeup brushes then look no further.
I was looking for a makeup brush for contouring and another for bronzer, I was looking around in Boots (shock) but all the brushes I was looking at were around £15 each…I did see a real techniques contour brush that was £11.99 but the head was quite small so I thought I would carry on browsing to see if I could see anything else.
I then saw the Morphe brushes which were £20 each, some more expensive, which dont get me wrong, isn’t bad at all but considering I was looking for two brushes I didn’t want to be paying £40 just for that.
Then I came across the BH Cosmetics Sculpt and Blend Fan Faves – 10 Piece Brush Set Special Edition £22.
I’m sorry, £22 for 10 makeup brushes? Thats insane, I’d be crazy if I didn’t buy them!
Last year I feel was the year of countour and highlighting, it’s become such a big thing to be glowing to the high heavens and cheekbones that could cut a bitch (am I wrong) and whilst I am terrible at contouring, I’m hoping with these brushes I’ll be able to jump on the band wagon! I don’t think I would do it for an everyday look but to switch it up now and again would be great.
They are in a stunning bright pink colour which at first glance is very eye catching, in this set it has the ultimate collection of face and eye brushes for shading, contouring and highlighting, the fluffy synthetic bristles are firm enough for precise colour placement yet flexible enough for seamless blending and they all work great with creams, liquids and powders.
Here is a list of what is included:
- 114 – Angled blending face brush (can apply contour, highlight + blush).
- 119 – Small angled blending face brush (can blend highlighter under brow bone or apply eyeshadow in the crease of your lid).
- 123 Flat top buffing brush (can apply liquid, cream, powder products).
- 124 – Tapered face blending brush (can apply powdered products)
- 127 – Angled face shader brush (good for controlled contour + even highlighter)
- 130 – Large shader brush (good for applying a base shade over lid or concealer, cream eyeshadows).
- 137 – Large angled buffer brush (can blend foundation, contour products)
- 139 – Precision flat blending brush (good for buffing in edges of highlighter or to soften edges of bronzer/contour)
- 140 – Highlight brush.
- 141 – Large shadow brush (good for picking up perfect amount of product + blending).
You get a fantastic selection of brushes in this set and for £22 I feel like this is an absolute steal! It’s still available on boots website which you can purhcase here and possibly still in store.
I haven’t used all of the brushes yet but I’m excited to try them out! Have any of you tried the BH Cosmetics brushes? If so, what are your thoughts, I’d love to know.
Thanks so much for reading and I’ll speak to you all very soon ♥
