I was really excited to get these in a mail today My initial thoughts after opening the box were: these are so small! I’ve ordered no 2, which is a face brush (powder/blush/highlighter) and no 1 designed for blending foundation/blush and liquids, etc. Being used to slightly bigger powder brushes I was initially disappointed with the size of both. However, after testing these I have to say they are really gorgeous. Both are beautifully designed, sturdy and sleek. The length of the handles is just right and both sit in your hand comfortably. The bristles are super soft, I don’t think they will shed but time will tell. Foundation brush (no 2) is quite spiky and looks strange in my opinion but works like a charm! I’ve used it with Chanel Perfection Lumiere and achieved flawless finish. No smudges, no lines, beautiful, even foundation – something I wasn’t getting with Real Techniques Expert Face Brush. No 2 brush is also excellent, so soft that it feels like kitten paw on your face Both handles are black gloss wood and I’m concerned they may be prone to scratches, but it’s too early to say. Also, I would prefer both brushes to be bigger, especially the powder brush, but well I’m still very happy with both and may have a look at the rest of the collection.
These aren’t exactly cheap. No 2 retails for £25, no 1 for £30. You can buy them at Love-Makeup once they’re back in stock.
