A bunch of new brushes

A little while ago I ordered a bunch of new brushes. Under the cut you'll find a review of all of them.

Real Techniques Blush Brush

The Real Techniques Blush Brush had been on my wishlist for a long time. I finally decided to buy it because my other blush brush was literally falling apart. This brush is very, very big. At first the size scared me a little because I was worried that it would apply way too much blush. This doesn't seem to be the case. You can be quite generous with this brush, it doesn't over apply too easily. This of course can change depending on which blush you're using. So far I've only used it with one blush (which is also new and up soon!). I think it's also perfect to apply bronzer with. Because the brush is so large it can easily give you that 'sunkissed' glow that we all want in summer. Did I mention that this brush is incredibly soft? It's incredibly soft. This brush didn't shed at all when I washed it. But I was sort of expecting that because I never had that issue with any Real Techniques brushes.

The Tangle Teezer

Boy was I excited to finally get this brush! My hair is obviously pretty damaged from bleaching it. The Tangle Teezer has been a phenomenon for ages here in the beauty blogging scene and everyone seems to love it. I think it's a great brush and it gets rid of all the tangles and I definitely notice less breakage when brushing it. There's only one teeny tiny little problem: THIS BRUSH IS IMPOSSIBLE TO HOLD WHEN YOU'RE LEFT HANDED. When I first unpacked this brush I held it in my right hand, and thought oh what a great ergonomic shape! It definitely is. Unless you're left handed! I think it's pretty ignorant that it doesn't state it anywhere that this brush is only for right-handed people and that kind of pissed me off. I mean, I can brush my hair with my right hand but it feels weird and unnatural. 

Ecotools Eye Enhancing Duo Set 

These brushes are one set together. I was pretty stoked to try this set out. Ecotools have been a loved budget brand for quite some time, and I had never used their brushes before.

Top: Smudge, Shade
Bottom: Blend, Define

Smudge: The smudge end is great for, well, smudging things. I find this one very useful to apply colours to the lower lashline. The brush isn't stiff at all, which is something I was worried about. 
Shade: The shading brush is a very useful brush for just applying your main colour. The uneven bristles allow you to pick up glitter and shimmers. This brush has been very useful to me every since I got it, and I've used it every day. 
Blend: The blending end isn't the most precise blending brush in the world, however, this doesn't mean it isn't good. I wouldn't use it for precision blending (because of its flat top) but you can create perfectly blended looks purely with this brush. 
Define: This brush is great for brows. It's almost half the size of the Real Techniques Brow Brush, which makes it more precise. You can also use it for eyeshadow or as a lip liner. You can never own too many angled brushes in my opinion.

Overall this set is the bomb.com. I have to say it. It's an absolute steal for only €9! With this set only you can probably create a billion looks, so I'd recommend it to anyone who's just starting out with makeup. The brushes are also cruelty free (so sythetic hair) and they held up great during their first wash. The only con I have is that you can't make them stand up because they're dual ended. At this price point I can't complain about that though. 

Boozyshop A02 Tapered Blending Brush

I ordered all items in this review from the Dutch website Boozyshop. This blending brush looked pretty neat and it was exactly enough for me to qualify for free shipping. The small tip allows you to blend very precisely, which I like. The exterior of the brush looks very simple and therefore expensive. The only issue I have is that they don't disclose the material of the brush, so I don't know what hair the brush is made of. I think it's synthetic though. This brush retails at €4,95 and it's worth every penny. I would have believed it if it were double the price, too. The brush did shed a hair in its first wash though. Overall, I think it's really great and I'd recommend it. I'm wonder if the rest of their homebrand brushes are that great as well. 

Overall I think all of these brushes are pretty great. They're all pretty low budget so everyone can check them out. My favourite purchase are the Ecotools brushes but I'm also very glad to have a good blush brush again.
