I think we can safely say I have an obsession with makeup brushes. I get new ones way too often and let’s be honest it’s mainly so I don’t have to wash them every week… Bad beauty blogger! Anyway I was sent a selection of LAB2 Brushes* which is actually a partner of SensatioNail and I love their stuff so I had high hopes.
I got to choose four brushes out of their range and they are so my kind of brushes. Three eye brushes were necessary as I love finding eye brushes which I can rotate in my collection. The three I chose were the Beyond A Shadow of a Doubt brush* which is a base shadow brush, Just Blending In brush* which is obviously a blending brush and finally Put a Lid on it Angled Shadow brush* which is a really versatile brush. Now the fourth brush is a face brush which looked amazing was the Triple Threat Multi-Purpose Brush*.
First up I am absolutely loving the eye brushes. I first used the Beyond a Shadow of a Doubt* with one of my KIKO stick eyeshadows. I applied the stick to my eyes and buffed it in which worked particularly well. I believe this is because of the densely pack bristles, it made sure the product was pushed into the lid rather than scraped away like sometimes more flimsy brushes do. Within the same eye look I took the Put a Lid on it Angled Shadow brush* into my crease with a powder shadow to make sure it was defined and I must say it blended it out very nicely indeed, no harsh edges to be seen. I used the Just Blending In brush* on a separate day to blend my eyeshadow, I didn’t think this worked as well as the angled one but it was still very good for the price point.
Now the most exciting brush for me had to be the Triple Threat Multi-Purpose Brush*. The reason why is as it is a dense flat top brush. Now that might not seem mind blowing but these brushes are usually my holy grail for foundation brushes. Most of the time I’ll use a beauty sponge but sometimes I like a brush to really work the foundation in if I need a lot of wear time. I used it before a ten hour shift and my foundation looked pretty good at the end of the night. It has really dense bristles which allows you to pat or work it into the skin getting a flawless finish. The foundation I was using with it was the NARS Sheer Glow which I find really difficult to apply wrong, it looks good almost anyway you wear it so I’ll definitely try the brush with other foundations too.
These brushes are really good quality, the price is good (cheaper than RealTechniques) and why wouldn’t you want to add a few more brushes to your collection? And it’s near Christmas so just think of all the people you could gift a few new products to!
