Budget Beauty: Seventeen Cosmetics Makeup Brushes

I was eyeing up the Real Techniques Bold Metal range in Boots recently when I spotted a seemingly new launch from Seventeen Cosmetics.  Won over by the cheap price and having not heard anything in the media about these brushes I decided I would review two of them to see what the quality was like. There are four brushes available in this range: Powder & Blush Brush, Eye-shadow Brush, Angled Eyeliner Brush and Lip Brush. I opted for the Cheek and Eyeshadow brushes as these are two I would get the most use out of. 


Surely two makeup brushes for the bargain price of £4.98 wouldn't be that great I thought? WRONG! The bristles are 100% synthetic but feel quite soft against the skin. They don't feel harsh and plastic-y unlike typical cheap makeup brushes. I have also found that they don't shed easily which is another massive bonus. I used my Cinema Secrets Brush Cleaner as normal to wash these and they came out looking like new again.

I also think that these are the ideal choice to pop into your clutch bag on a night out for touch ups. I can honestly say that there is nothing worse than losing an expensive MAC brush on a night out and feeling begrudged to replace it. At least if you lose one of these it won't break the bank to run to boots and pick up a new one. You can shop the Seventeen Brush collection here.

Let me know what you think if you've tried them!
