Oooooh. Ok I’m probably a bit biased because I love The Body Shop in general but, ooooh. These are my favourite brushes so far. I have never found a set of makeup brushes so soft.
Lovely Lara sent me four brushes from the new range. I’d never used any brushes from The Body Shop before – or even makeup, actually – it’s usually just fragrance and body stuff. With that in mind, I didn’t really know what to expect from these.
The four I have are the eyeshadow crease brush, flat shader brush, fan brush and point highlighter brush. I’m a bit cheeky (if you’ll pardon the pun, ha) and I use the point highlighter brush for contour but it applies so much better than before. I never realised how tough my brushes actually were – even after being cleaned – until I started using these ones. It’s amazing how much better your makeup can go on when you’re using the right brushes or tools!
In all honesty I was actually a bit reluctant to use these at first because they’re so soft and really pretty and I didn’t want to ruin them. I think that the wooden handles make these look so classy and expensive, and the grey bristles enforce this even more. I’ve always gone for Spectrum or Real Techniques in the past when it comes to makeup tools and accessories and using these has totally opened my eyes to what else is out there.
As well as helping me to apply my makeup a lot smoother, all of this range is cruelty free and vegan – what more could you want?! I think I’m going to get the whole set, I swear by the four I’ve used so far.
