I love the expensive makeup brushes but honestly, sometimes you can get a few good ones at a bargain. Are they the best? Ummmm…no…. Are they alright for getting the job done? Ummmmmm…..sure!
Meet my new(ish) purchase:
They aren’t nearly as beautiful as the Real Techniques Bold Metals brushes (*drool), but after moving to Mumbai, I realised 2 things: 1) You’re not going to find exactly what you’re looking for here, or you are and it’s going to be some ridiculously extortionate price; and 2) You’ll probably find the BEST dupes of your life here, because I’m pretty positive that almost everything is “Made in India” (or China) or at least replicated brilliantly well!
There are loads of them! And I mean LOADS (24)!
They’re pretty soft.
Do NOT judge the chipped polish, please…!
Shadow and liners and brows, oh my!
These help give you that flawless base and necessary highlighter (post coming soon!)
Still not entirely sure what this gigantic one is for! Ha!
So in conclusion – no, they’re not the best ever, but they’re pretty darn good for the price, and honestly, with 2 small children running around trying to use them as paint brushes whenever they can, and a crazy rescued Mumbai mutt that thrives on chewing anything made of wood, I choose to save my money and succumb to the bargain buy!
Rating 3.5/5 (some are better than others)
As always, I’d love to hear from you! What bargain makeup brushes have you managed to scoop up lately? What are your favourite brushes?
