When I was younger, and I mean younger, I rarely wore makeup, but when I did it wasn’t anything compared to what girls start off with nowadays. As a teen in the late 90’s my makeup routine consisted of a CoverGirl pressed powder compact, pencil eyeliner to line the bottom waterline, and some berry shade of lip gloss. And not exactly using the best makeup brushed either.
Contouring, baking, blending, and shading were not part of our vocabulary. Now it seems as though girls that are as young as 15 are pro’s when it comes to using all sorts of makeup gadgets!
I recently got sent this massive set of makeup brushes and beauty blenders from Zaful and I couldn’t have imagined what to do with them when I was a youngster. Whether you’re quite a novice or consider yourself a pro this set is houses the best beauty gadgets for beginners in my book.
So, what comes in this massive package? Let’s have a look.
First up in the set is this massive collection of Maange makeup brushes. I’ve heard that Maange’s brushes tend to be dupes for other high-end brands, but I’m not sure what these can pass off as – if you have a clue, let me know! The set of brushes are synthetic and have a nice look and feel to them. I love the matte black handles and think the gold accent is really nice – it has a bit of a coppery hue without being rose gold.
The brushes don’t feel flimsy and I’ve been liking using them. As I mentioned before, I would have had no clue what to do with each brush when I was in my teens and even early 20’s so I really like that the brushes are individually marked as to show what their purpose is.
The set also comes with some unbranded brushes – 3 to be precise. You’ll get a flat contour brush, an S – shape blush brush, and a foundation brush, which happens to be my favourite from the set!
As part of the set, you’ll also get a total of 8 beauty blenders. I’ve used them quite sporadically and found that they do the job quite well. I like that they are different colours which can help you keep them sorted for specific uses. You’ll get 4 water droplet shaped beauty blenders, and 4 gourd shaped beauty blenders.
You can find the makeup brushes and beauty blenders from Zaful for less than £15 and I think it’s a great way to get your brush collection started if you’re just entering the world of makeup. I know I would have loved to have a set like this when I was younger, and frankly, they’ll still come in useful now.
