A while back in this ebay post, I mentioned buying a few makeup brushes. They arrived pretty quickly and I have to say I'm pretty impressed with them.
These brushes are just £2.55 for a set of four (here) are are unbranded with matte black handles. Each brush is slightly different so can be used for different purposes. There is a flat brush, rounded, angled and tapered.
The brushes remind me of the Sigma duo fibre brushes - the tapered brush is a smaller version of the sigma precision tapered brush.
All four brushes feel sturdy and good quality. The brushes themselves are soft, fluffy and smooth without any shedding (they're synthetic too!). I've given them a wash with Dr Bronners soap and they washed well - most importantly they didn't fall apart which is what I was worried about before buying!
For me, these brushes work best for concealer, highlighting, blending and contouring. They're slightly on the larger side for my eyes but for base they are perfect. I use the flat one for buffing in concealer, the round one is great for blending either concealer or contour, the angled one works well for applying highlighter under the brows and the angled brush is ideal for concealing under the eyes and around the nose.
I'm really surprised by how well made these brushes are considering it works out at just over 60p each. Whether for a spare set, a makeup beginner, or for travelling - they're ideal to have. It's crazy just how cheap you can find certain items on ebay. These are delivered from China but they arrived in around 9 days to the UK which is pretty quick and they were well packaged. You can find them here.
Have you ever bought any brushes from Ebay?
