New In: Eye Brushes

new eye brushes

The other week I had a sudden urge to replace my eye brushes. Why? I can’t lie there was no reasoning behind the decision, I just got complacent with my current picks and felt the need to add a couple of newbies into the mix. Daily eye brushes get a lot of use, to pack on colour to the lid and blend out through the crease, they are some of my most reached for brushes so I knew I wanted to get something that would stand the test of time.

After having my eye on …eye…geddit? the Bobbi Brown Eye Blender Brush I knew that would be my first port of call. The second brush was just pure coincidence ;) Although I have a plethora of blending brushes there was something about this tapered dome shape that stood out from the crowd. Fluffy, super soft and just the right density to blend away any harsh lines, I’ve only had it a week and it’s already love. Sitting proud as my second Bobbi Brown brush I’m hooked, the bristles are fab at blending and their long handles prevent you from being too heavy handed whilst applying product.

The second brush comes from Louise Young in the form of her LY39 Doomed Shadow Brush. Made with natural hairs this packs on colour without being too dense allowing for softer application. Perfect for daily use this helps to keep the lid looking natural whilst the colour is applied. Teamed with the Bobbi Brown Blender they make the perfect eye duo. One to pop on the colour and one to smoke it out – two step eye makeup routine done!

    Love this and I love the Mac 217! I just want to say I have a new-ish blog filled with some beauty bits along with a few lifestyle posts nestled around varying from my beauty top picks to my failure fear, and I would love YOU to join my cosy community and find something that tickles your pickle at:
    Thank you xx

  • The bobbi brown blender brush has been one of my holy grail brushes for years! It is so good! x

  • I’m not usually an eyeshadow wearer, I think out of sheer laziness really and partly due to the fact I don’t really own many decent eyeshadow brushes… It might be time to invest, especially in that Bobbi Brown one!

    • You will adore the Bobbi Brown brush and it will change you into being a daily shadow wearer!xx

  • I’ve had my eye on the Bobbi Brown brush for a little bit now too, is it just used for blending harsh lines or is it also good for applying color in the crease?

    • You can use it for both, sometimes I use the tip to apply the colour but mainly I use it for blending :) xx

  • That blending brush is on my to-buy list :-) Just gotta save up a little first…

  • I need that Bobbi Brown brush – it has been on my list for ages :)

  • I need to have a re-vamp of my make up brushes, I definitely need to add one of these in too x

    Blender brushes are just the absolute best, such life savers! I’ve been wanting to replace my eye brushes lately aswell x

    • Sometimes they just don’t do the trick! It’s always good to have a bit of a refresh :) xx

    I’ve been hearing about that BB brush EVERYWHERE for a couple months. Looks like it’s time to bite the bullet…

  • I love the look of the LY one! I also recommend the Liz Earle Eye Colour brush, it’s about £12.50 and way better at laying on colour than the MAC 239 :) also I love the Smashbox 10 Crease brush – for me it is superior to the Bobbi brush!

    • That’s the one I’ve been using religiously! The Liz Earle one is fantastic but after using it for over a year I just had to pick up something new ;) Damn being a beauty junkie!xx

  • These look brill , need them in my life xox

  • Sounds like that Bobbi Brown brush works wonders! I don’t need it but I want it haha :) xx
