Recently I've started to feel very limited by my lack of makeup brushes. In the past I've always made do with my fingers, or cheap applicators and one-off brushes, but I decided it was time to get myself a little starter kit to play with.
I didn't want to spend a fortune, as I really wasn't sure how well I'd get on with using brushes. I think it's easier to use your fingers for some things. I chose a ten piece set by Bobbi Brown, which I found on eBay. I know you're all going to say, 'It could be fake!' but, rest assured, I checked all of the trademarks etc online before buying, plus the seller had 100% feedback for the exact same product.
The set arrived today and it's small, yet perfectly formed. The ten brushes included are: Foundation, Blush, Bronzer, Face Blender, Concealer, Eye Shader, Cream Shadow, Eye Shadow, Eye Brow and Ultra Fine Eyeliner. All were in plastic sheathes/bristle covers.
If anyone wants me to refer them to the eBay seller then please send me an email.
