review - fearne cottens make up brushes

June 09, 2011

I got these brushes as a present from christmas and have been using them everyday since. I know they were relatively cheap, maybe £20 for the set. I'm not really a brush person but since using these they have become part of my daily routine.

The left brush is my favourite and most used brush! Especially the top brush.Because of it being angled i find that my blusher and goes on a lot smoother and nicer, where as the bottom brush i mainly use for the apples of my cheeks. The brush on the right is extremely soft although i rarely tend to use the top part of that brush as i use my fingers to put on my foundation.

The left brush is my least liked brush, i find the top part of the brush is too flimsy.The bottom part is slightly larger but not as thick and strong as i would have liked it to be. The middle brush i use for blending concealer. I found that this brush was too thick so when i blended the concealer it would just clear it off my face. The right brush is one of my favourites. The top of it i use on my eyebrows, it is a nice thickness and gives a good natural look. The bottom part i use for eyeshadow and is soft and sturdy. 

Overall i think these brushes are definatly worth their price. The brushes were soft and the bristles were a good quality. I also really love the pattern of the brushes. I would give these brushes 7/10.

  1. Great review! Just shows that you don't have to go for the most expensive ranges to get quality. I love getting beauty products at Christmas and Birthdays, sometimes you get things you wouldn't normally buy and find they're actually really good!
