LILY ENGLAND – Makeup Brushes – 4 Piece Face Makeup Brush Set Marble and Rose Gold – PR

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!

Price: £24.95 at Lily England.

Lily England – Everything is Better in Rose Gold! – PR

FullSizeRender (4)

I was very lucky to receive these products from Lily England for me to review for my followers – Please note I received these complimentary!

My first impressions of this make up brush set were that the items were incredibly soft, stylish and adorable! They’re surprisingly good quality for their price – this entire set retails at £45, so you get four face brushes, five eye brushes and then a sturdy holder/carry case for storing during travelling or to complete the look on your vanity!

The brushes are soft to touch, with rose gold ferrule to compliment the marbled handle – and best of all they’re cruelty free and vegan! I’m loving how all these brands are now steering away from animal cruelty just for our vanity!

I will be reviewing the individual sets over the next few weeks, so keep your eyes open!

Eco Tools – Perfecting Blender Duo Makeup Sponges

FullSizeRender_1

Beautiful, eco-friendly makeup sponges that are a dynamic duo.

These sponges come in a two pack, with a larger sponge for achieving light, build-able coverage and a smaller Mini Detail blender for precise coverage.

The large blender is the best I find wet, but you can use this sponge dry, as you can bounce it over your product for an airbrush finish. The smaller one I prefer to use dry as I can use it for my concealer to create a heavy coverage.

These sponges are PETA certified and 100% Vegan, so these are a great quality animal friendly alternative to the other leading brands.

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

Price: £9.99 @ Boots.com
