I never used to be a brush geek in any way at all and to be honest, I still cringe at the price of some brushes. There are very decent alternatives to the ultra expensive brushes (Crown and Real Techniques spring to mind) but now that I understand brush geekery a bit better (being welded to NARS, Wayne Goss, Artis and Chanel which are ALL expensive) I do now know the thrill of a quality blender. But, they’re not essential. I could live (unwillingly) without.
So, Makeup Revolution’s offering of 9 pieces for £20 is pretty good. But, you’re not getting NARS. They’re synthetic hair but nicely packed, with plenty of fluffery where needed and sharp where not. For my own use, the white tipped blush brush is by far the most useful and not dissimilar to something I already have and use a lot – now that I’m trying a few more powder blushes, this fine hair tip type that doesn’t pack on colour but gently wafts it on is all kinds of useful. I haven’t worked my way through them all (the only one I didn’t like the feel of particularly is the foundation brush) but have used the blush brush and the edged eye brush.
I know that many Revolution fans have been pushing for a brush set, so it’s HERE now! Other than in my own palette, I haven’t used Revolution brushes before so I have some experimenting still to do.
