It took me years to understand the value of a good brush in make up. I would be slack-jawed at people who spent literally hundreds on their brushes, but now I’m as much of a brush geek as anyone else, although I’m distinctly happier if I can find great quality brushes that don’t cost a fortune. And better yet, if they’re cruelty free. I’d very much prefer to avoid a bit of squirrel in my make up drawer thanks all the same, or a bit of horse or even, god forbid, a bit of mink. Synthetic bristles are an area of beauty that have improved beyond all recognition in the past few years, so real vs synthetic isn’t the difference it used to be.
B. Beauty Tools has kicked off the range with a wonderful set of brushes – I honestly cannot fault them for softness and their pick-up ability..B. Beauty Tools
.. although I notice this little fella needs a bit of a trim to one side! B.’s range of brushes numbers seven – a Finishing Brush (the only one I can’t see the point of) for £9.99, a Powder Brush (meet him above) for £9.99, a Contour Brush at £8.99, a foundation brush at £7.99, an Eyeshadow Blending Brush for £8.99, an Eyeshadow Brush for £5.99 and a Retractable Lip Brush for £5.99. Unless having a long handle is an absolute deal-breaker for you, then I’d suggest that you try the Travel Set at £17.99 HERE containing the powder brush, the foundation brush, the eyeshadow brush and the lip brush.
I know that the B. Beauty Tools have been developed with my make up artist friend and B. brand ambassador, Cassie Lomas, and you can see the make up artistry in them. The angled blusher brush for example that makes it good for blush or contouring and the retractable lip brush with a lid for portability and so you don’t get it covered in handbag fluff, are all marks of a range well thought through.
