Trying Beauty Trends – Oval Brushes

Gone are the days where you put your make up on with your hands (I leave that for quick touch ups in public bathrooms). Now there are lots of things to apply foundation, concealer and contour.

I used to have a brush but when rushing in the morning I found I had brush marks, especially around my nose. After a few recommendations I went on to a Real Techniques sponge for my base and a range of Morphe brushes for my cheeks, brows and eyes.  However, I see oval brushes everywhere with a pretty high price tag for something I am not too sure about. I went for a wander around Primark and browsed through the beauty section. Surprisingly there are lots of great products. The one thing my eyes fell on were their oval brushes. I picked a small one up for £2.50 to see what all the hype was about.

I put a little of my foundation on my hand to massage into the brush. To be honest, I felt like it all disappeared. I used it across my cheeks and saw not much coverage. I was worried I would use too much product so I continued applying my foundation with my Real Techniques Miracle Sponge. Once it got to applying my concealer, I decided to try the oval brush again.
The feel of the brush is soft and not bristly. Despite not using it for the application, it was good for blending across your eyes ad nose. Was it worth the £2.50? Probably. Would I buy more oval brushes? Perhaps, but for now I am sticking to my Morphe brushes and my Miracle Sponge.
