The Best Eye Shadow Brush Ever?

Price: ♥♥♥♥♥

Overall: ♥♥♥♥♥

This has to be my favourite eye shadow brush of all time. So much so, I now own at least 8 of the same one and it is the Elf Professional Blending Eye Brush.

These brushes are so fluffy and soft with the bristles packed together enough to not be floppy and just enough to not be overly dense. The brushes pick up and hold the shadow very well making it so easy to build up colour and blend out. 

When I originally bought my first one, I was worried that the bristles would become loose quickly especially when washing but I notice no more falling out than any other brush I own which did surprise me. To compare against the brush most eye shadow lovers use, I prefer these ones so much more than the MAC 217. In fact my MAC 217 bristles have turned green after just two washes with baby shampoo!

The only reason this wouldn't get a full five star review is as they are white and silver, they do get dirty pretty quickly so they would be preferred in a darker colour but as I already said, they clean really well so not too big of a deal.

This brush is part of their essentials range and in the US sells for just $1 which is the equivalent to just 64p at the time of posting.

Unfortunately is currently down so I can't give you an update of how much it now retails for over here in the UK. However when I bought my last ones back last March, they were having a site wide 50% off sale making these 75p each. If you log on to the UK site you can enter your email to find out exactly when it relaunches.

Let me know if you own this brush and what you think of it or if you have another favourite eye shadow brush.

A Fresh New Design...

Once you have fallen in love with make up, there really is no going back. Even though my blog has been well and truly neglected for the past year and a bit, my love for the world of beauty has remained strong. My own writing and voice became somewhat silent but nevertheless I am still an avid reader and viewer.

In April 2015, I began my second year university exams and shortly after that I was off on holiday to Florida (where I spent a good 3 hours in Sephora with purchases amounting to an eye-watering total at the till). Then August came around and I began my one year placement in the events industry which took up a very unexpected level of my time and henceforth meant leaving my little space on the internet all alone.

But as it comes to end and I approach my final year of university in September, I hope to somewhat revive it with content and beauty ramblings. lucylovehart has had a bit of a make over so I hope you like the new design and there is plenty more to come!

So stay tuned...
