I've never had a lot of faith in buying anything off eBay. However, a few weeks ago I was going through a time where I needed a decent set of make-up brushes, that didn't ruin my bank account. With my boyfriend’s formal and my valedictory vastly approaching, I realised that the 3 or 4 Artise make up brushes that I was using at the moment, would not do the trick! And so, my friend put me onto a company that sells through eBay.
The deal was a little hard to believe, $16.95 for 32 make up brushes. Mostly the pack comes with eye-shadow brushes, however there is also a nice range of face brushes for foundation and power products. On the whole all the brushes are light and not scratchy/harsh on the skin, even with product on them. The foundation brush and large power brush is able to pack a lot of product on to them, but not refrain it from being placed on the skin. The transfer of the product works well and the brushes give a nice finish. I haven't had any problems with streakiness or harsh lines.
"Large powder brush"
This large blush brush seems to be the most multi-purpose brush in the entire set. I constantly find myself using it for all types of power, as well as on occasions, using it to even out my foundation. This brush is very full in its bristles and gives a soft finish. It does provide a natural looking finish to any look.
My only concern in this set is with the blush brush. It seems to be very thin in terms of the bristles. It still gives a nice natural finish; however, I still would prefer a brush that is a little fuller such as the large powder brush above. I feel as though the brush doesn't pick up as much product as it possibly could, however the angled bristles do prove to give a nice sweep across the check bones.
Overall, the brushes are worth a lot more than what I actually paid. And due to eBay being a possible hit and miss, this one is definitely a hit! They have been my best purchase so far and I haven't had any issues with them so far. Compared to the brushes that I have from the Artiste Professional range that I've had for about a year, these ones are already proving to be much better quality!
