For such a long time I wanted to get my hands on some precision brushes! The obsession started after one of my usual weekend trips to Space NK, where I usually wonder around swatching everything and anything and then leave empty handed as I haven’t got the money to purchase something new. During one of these visits I spotted the absolutely gorgeous Artis brushes. They felt so so soft on the back of my hand but there was no way I was going to pay that sort of money. Then there’s Mac’s oval 6 which is just over £3o and around Christmas time I just couldn’t justify splurging this amount on one brush BUT THEN there was Makeup Revolution Contouring Precision Oval Brush Set (wow that was a mouthful)!! A whole set of 3 for £19.99.. now you’re talking. The only problem was I couldn’t get this set anywhere before Christmas, it appeared out of stock in most Superdrug’s within a 50 mile radius and also out of stock online. However, I have now finally managed to get my hands on this set post Christmas …yipee! So what are my thoughts…….
You get 3 brushes of different sizes with this set which are absolutely perfect for base application.
I have given a brief explanation of how I use these brushes below.
Perfect for smoothing over foundation/concealer to give a flawless finish. I still use my Real Techniques expert face brush to buff in my foundation first and then run this stunningly soft brush over my face to give the most beautiful finish.
I use this brush for contouring and find it’s ideal for smoothing and blending cream based contour products. I use the Real Techniques sculpting brush first to again buff in the bulk of the product and use this after to get the perfect finish. It’s basically great at blurring any sculpting lines and provides a smooth finish.
OK, this picture makes the brush look big but it’s actually quite small and great for getting into the places the larger oval face brush can’t reach such as under the eyes and around the nose.
My final conclusion is these work best with liquid and cream based products, I stick to my usual traditional brushes when applying powders. I wouldn’t use these brushes to apply the bulk of my products but love using them after I have buffed on my products to give the ultimate flawless finish. At £19.99 these are fantastic value for money. I don’t feel the need to buy the more expensive versions available on the market as these do a great job.
