I’ve known make-up artist, Cassie Lomas, for such a long time! We used to work on B together for Superdrug and have had some very fun times at Superdrug press days, so I’m delighted to introduce her first brush range. There’s really no doubt that real make up artists make better brushes than anyone else – these are the tools of their daily work so they have hands-on knowledge of what’s needed. It’s not the same as brands that produce generic collections because although they can be extremely good, they often don’t have an intuitive knowledge behind them. Which is all fine for people like me, but if you have an appreciation for the very finer points of what individual brushes can do, your tools need to be properly thought out. I have a couple of Wayne Goss brushes that I swear by.
Funnily enough, the most useful brush from me from the Cassie Lomas Makeup Brushes collection is the little brow brush (named Ollie) at £8. I am always searching for a spare spoolie to brush my brows – I do very little with them but when I use a brow mascara I like to brush through with a clean brush afterwards, and I never, ever have one! So, now I do.
These are the three brushes I’ve focussed on and put to use (alongside Ollie is Bowie and Buster) so can say the pick up is great and the blend is soft and smooth – all you can ask of a brush, really. Since I’ve accumulated more brushes of late, after never being very interested in brushes, I find I turn to certain favourites all of the time. Cassie has used a blend of synthetic and natural hair to create this range that feels and looks all about the durability and quality.
I’m assuming the brushes are all named for family and friends – it certainly livens up the choosing and makes a very welcome change from No.9 or smiliar; who wouldn’t want a Stewy brush! All of the brushes are under £25 so they’re still at the luxury end of pricing (as far as I’m concerned) so I’d happily recommend the Buster (£14) as an excellent crease and lid brush.
