LILY ENGLAND – Makeup Brushes – 5 Piece Eye Makeup Brush Set Marble and Rose Gold – PR

FullSizeRender_1

A stunning eye brush set with gorgeous rose gold accent!

I received these brushes complimentary from the amazing folks at Lily England to try out and review for you lovelies!

As you know, I am obsessed with anything rose gold, and even splurged out on the huge Holy Grail Marbleous Brushes from Spectrum Collections, so I was very eager to try these out and see if they’re as good as they look!

In this set you get five brushes they’ve called the ‘Ultimate Eye Set’. The five brushes you get are:

  • E1 – Luxe Crease Brush
    High performance fluffy brush for blending eye shadows in the crease of the eye
  • E2 – Shadow Brush
    Designed for gently blending and layering powder shadows over eyelid
  • E3 – Contour Shader
    Angled shader brush to fit the contours your eyes-perfect for creating dramatic looks
  • E4 – Angled Brow Brush
    Define your brows with powder or liquid makeup. Featuring densely packed slanted bristles for precision application
  • M1 Multi-Tasker
    Flat brush designed to meet multiple needs, use with concealer to camouflage or on eyes with cream shadows

After using their four piece face brush set you can see the quality that Lily  England ensure their products have, and its the same with these brushes. They’re soft, and high quality – with no bristles falling out on a deep clean – which I always use as a sign of brushes quality as you want something that won’t fall apart after deep cleans! Oh, and they’re VEGAN!

The brushes were able to pick up my eye shadows with little ease – which helps make the colour control easier and allows better control over the blending. They were easy to use on my Modern Renaissance and Subculture palettes from Anastasia Beverly Hills. Sadly they didn’t help prevent the dreadful fallout from the Subculture palette….

They’ve preformed as well as my usual Spectrum Brushes, and out-preformed my Eco Tool’s brushes – so if you’re on a budget – these are your ultimate tools! Or if you want a set for travel, these are unbelievable to have in your on the go bag!

Bottom Line:  Sturdy, budget friendly, stylish vegan brushes that can tackle any eye shadow formula with ease and create eyebrows on fleek!

Price: £20.00 at Lily England.

FullSizeRender

A beautifully soft brush set that is on trend with the rose gold and marble hype!

I received these brushes complimentary from the amazing folks at Lily England to try out and review for you lovelies!

As you know, I am obsessed with anything rose gold, and even splurged out on the huge Holy Grail Marbleous Brushes from Spectrum Collections, so I was very eager to try these out and see if they’re as good as they look!

In this set you get four brushes they’ve called the ‘Complete Face Set’. The four brushes you get are:

  • F1 – Powder Brush
    Large and fluffy, a great all rounder for powder, bronzer, blusher or loose powder foundations
  • F2 – Complexion Foundation Brush
    Domed brush for buffing and blending liquid, powder or stick foundations for an air-brushed finish
  • C1 – Contour Brush
    Designed to create the perfect contours with powder or cream products
  • C2 – Sculpt & Glow Brush
    Tapered brush head perfect for highlighting, setting powder or use in the hollows of your cheek to contour for facial sculpting

I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of these brushes – these are on par with my Spectrum brushes! They’re soft, and high quality – with no bristles falling out on a deep clean – which I always use as a sign of brushes quality as you want something that won’t fall apart after deep cleans! Oh, and they’re VEGAN!

These brushes blended out my foundation, concealer and contour with minimum ease, which is hard to find with certain brushes as I use a mix of liquid, cream and powder formulas! Same goes for the blusher brush – it worked with my Zoeva blusher as well as my cream M.A.C. blushers.

They’ve preformed as well as my usual Spectrum Brushes, and out-preformed my Eco Tool’s brushes – so if you’re on a budget – these are your ultimate tools! Or if you want a set for travel, these are unbelievable to have in your on the go bag!

Bottom Line:  Sturdy, budget friendly, stylish vegan brushes that can tackle any makeup formula with ease to create blended contour on point!

These Spectrum brushes have a lovely rose gold accent and are incredibly soft!

I managed to snap these beautiful brushes back in the Cyber Friday deal at Spectrum Collections. They come in a 12 piece set which includes; an angled foundation brush, a luxe powder brush, a flat top contour and a luxe tapered sculptor.

The brushes have a white handle with a beautiful rose gold ferrule, with the bristles having a gorgeous white to grey gradient. The bristles are incredibly soft, and feel wonderful to use. They’re very easy to clean using a brush cleanser and a silicon brush cleaning mat. I can clean all of mine in around 5 minutes, which has made my cleaning routine a lot quicker!

These brushes are vegan, and incredible quality. I haven’t found any fallen out bristles yet!

They apply my makeup smoothly and blend my contours perfectly. The eye shadow fluffy brushes pick up the perfect amount of pigment. I can’t believe I used to use a beauty sponge for everything! These brushes have revolutionised my makeup routine!

Bottom Line:  Extremely soft, beautifully finished brushes which make applying makeup easier with a flawless finish!!

Eco Tools Day To Night Set

fullsizerender_2

Amazingly soft,  perfect contouring and highlighting eco friendly brushes!

As with all of the other Eco Tool brushes I have tried, these are unbelievably soft! This set is designed to help you transition your neutral day makeup into a highlighted, contoured glamorous look!

These brushes are full sized, clean easy and do not lose their softness or shape. The quality is astounding – I’ve yet to have any fibre breakages and I’ve had these for a few months now!

The fan brush is my favourite for applying my powdered highlighters as it picks up enough to allow you to build your glow -rather than applying it heavy from the get go! The set includes an angled contour brush, a tapered point concealer, an eye shadow brush, and a detailed lip/eyeliner brush – as well a cute handy bag to keep them all in!

Bottom Line: This is a budget friendly set to transition your day makeup into nightclub ready glamour!

Price: £16.99 from Boots

Eco Tools Essential Eye Set

fullsizerender_1

Cute, surprisingly soft eco friendly travel sized eye brushes!

I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of these brushes due to their price – they are incredibly soft and pick up pigments exceedingly well!

These brushes are travel sized – so shorter handle – and come with a cute bag to keep them in! They’re the perfect size for a handbag and easily portable for smokey-ing up your eye makeup for post work drinks.

These are easy to clean and there isn’t any loss of softness or quality from doing so.

Bottom Line:  Extremely affordable, soft travel sized brushes which work as well as some higher end brushes – at a fraction of the cost! What’s not to love?!

Price: £7.99 at Superdrug
