REVIEW: No.7 Make-up Brushes!

Hi Everyone!

I've used No.7 make-up brushes for a long time now and my collection has grown at a nice steady pace. I have five of the brushes in total but I have multiple ones of some of them. I have different likes and dislikes about each brush so I will go through them all separately. 

The first brush I have is is the Powder Blush Brush. To start off with I loved this brush, it was soft and it didn't pick up too much of the product. Although, after one wash unfortunately the bristles started to get quite wiry and almost felt jaggy on my face. Also the bristles started to fall out and separate, which you can see in the picture below. I do still use this brush but I use it to contour my cheekbones rather than using it to apply my blush as I find blush doesn't go on evenly with it any more. It is a shame as it is the perfect size for the apples of your cheeks. This brush cost £11.50 from Boots.

The next brush I have has to be my favourite out of all of them, considering I have purchased six of them now I must love it. It is the Eyeshadow Blend & Contour brush. This is the only brush that I will reach for when blending eyeshadow as it blends quickly and leaves a seamless eadge. I haven't had any trouble with shedding and it is still has soft as the day I got it. This brush cost £7.25 from Boots.  

The next No.7 brush I own is the Eye Colour Brush. I love this brush for packing eyeshadow onto my eyelid as it makes it very vibrant and opaque. I have three of these brushes and would definitely buy more as I am constantly cleaning them. Again this brush washes well and doesn't shed. This one cost £7.25 from Boots.

I also have the Essential Lip Brush but I don't feel like I have much to say about this one. It applies product well to the lips and doesn't shed. That is all I really look for in a lip brush. The bristles have dyed pink because of lipsticks but that doesn't bother me at all. This brush was £7.00 from Boots.

The final one is the Precision Eyeliner Brush. I must admit, I find this brush to big to apply eyeliner but I love it for applying an inner corner highlight as the brush fits perfectly into that area. This brush cost £7.25 from boots.

Overall, I would re-purchase all of these brushes except the blush one. The rest are all really good and have lasted through many make-up looks and washes. Thank you so much for reading!

  1. The eye brush looks so much like the MAC 217 brush! Xx

    1. I've never tried a 217 but I think i'll get one next time I place an order at MAC just so I can compare the two of them!
