QVS Brushes #AD
We may as well get straight to the point with QVS Brushes – they’re very inexpensive and as you might have guessed from the picture, available at supermarkets! If there is one thing to perk up a boring household shop, it’s the thought of a beauty treat.
I look at brushes with astonishment sometimes – with my ‘how much?’ face on and while I have one or two favourites that are premium priced (see what I did there?… I mean expensive!) I’m not a brush snob. Whatever does the job is fine with me. If I can find a tool that works perfectly well, I’d rather splurge on actual make up and not the applicators.
Over the past few months, I’ve been putting the QVS tools to the test and for the most part, can’t really find fault with any of them. The brushes have decent weight, good, sturdy handles and a very decent delivery. I noticed with the blusher brush (£4.98) in particular that it’s not as dense as others I’ve used but this has worked in my favour because when you want a light smattering of bronzer, rather than a full-on colour burst, a less dense brush gives better diffusion. One brush I didn’t have before getting hold of the QVS brushes was a concealer brush – and yes, it does make a difference from applying with fingers which is what I normally do. Handily, it’s on the other end of the Foundation Brush (£7) so there’s no chance of it getting lost.
The brush I’ve used the most, however, is the double ended brow groomer brush which comes as part of the QVS Essential Eye Kit that has 3 eye brushes for £6.98. I don’t do a lot with my brows but I do give them a brush through. Also included in this kit is a sponge applicator (bloggers get through a LOT of these because they’re ideal for swatching) and an eye blender brush which I can’t find any fault with at all.
QVS has everything from nail clippers and cuticle shapers to foundation sponges and powder puffs which really aren’t the glamour end of the beauty game and I want to spend my pennies on the shinies! I just like the idea that you can pick up a pair of lashes along with a bag of apples (and if you’re a regular reader of BBB, you’ll know I have a thing for putting lashes on fruit!) and that in amongst the washing powder and the bin liners, there’s an affordable treat to take the sting out of a stressy supermarket sweep.
