I’ve been meaning to buy makeup brushes for a long time, however, I’ve never plucked up the courage to do so. They’ve either been way out of my price range, or I’ve been too scared to choose the right ones. Anyhow, the other day I took the plunge and decided to indulge myself in an array of brushes.
I didn’t really know what I was looking for. I’d heard ZOEVA brushes are the best ones to get, but with living on a student loan, realistically they were way out of budget. I decided to head off to the local Boots store to have a nosey at what was on the market.
Having stood in front of a shelf full of brushes for a good twenty minutes, I finally made my choice and picked the EcoTool brush set, also throwing in five eye shadow brushes of the same make.
Not only were they in my price range, they were also really cute looking. I know you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover and all that, but these just looked like such an adorable set of brushes and also so well made. The handles are made from bamboo and the bristles are recycled aluminium ferrules and are super soft, I love the fact they’re ‘earth friendly’!
The brushes themselves are quite small, which adds to them being adorable but at the same time, they could be that tiny bit bigger. However, they still do the job and I find that smaller brushes are easier to use and more precise, but I guess that’s just my opinion, if you like larger brushes I’d recommend getting another set from their website.
They pick up the makeup powder so well, are easy to wash and dry really fast which is quite practical for when you’re at university and don’t really have anywhere to lay your brushes out to dry, (I might have to invest in a little pot to put them in).
I absolutely love this set of brushes and am so glad that I decided to finally treat myself. They make makeup so much easier to apply and create a gorgeously even finished look.
