Review | Seventeen Eyeshadow Brush

I was recently looking at the make-up brushes in Boots and uhmming and ahhing over yet another Real Techniques set when I saw that the make-up brand Seventeen had brought out their very own make-up brushes. I am currently still over the moon with my Real Techniques Bold Metals dupes which I paid less than £5 for for a 7 piece set and whilst they may be cheap and may have traveled all the way from China, they do work really well and for the price you can't really complain. I am also really enjoying using a lot of ELF eyeshadow brushes, especially for blending and contouring the hollows of the eye. Whenever I go to America I always stock up on some more ELF eyeshadow brushes as they are usually around $1 which works out at 75p each which is incredible, especially considering they are such great quality and last for years. I may not actually need any more eyeshadow brushes but I just can't stop buying them, mostly because it means I don't need to bother washing my brushes quite as often! Yes, I really would rather buy more brushes than wash the ones I already have!

So there I stood, now uhmming and ahhing over which Seventeen make-up brushes to buy. There was a lip brush, an angled eyeliner brush, an eyeshadow brush and a powder & blush brush. With prices ranging from £1.99 to £2.99, they were hardly going to break the bank so I bought one of each, minus the lip brush as I probably wouldn't use it. Today I want to show you the Seventeen Eyeshadow Brush which costs a whopping £1.99!

About the Seventeen Eyeshadow Brush:
"SEVENTEEN now introduces the tools to create the perfect make up look! Use with your favourite SEVENTEEN eyeshadow. Made with 100% synthetic hair, this brush is the perfect addition to your make up bag."

The Seventeen Eyeshadow Brush comes with a rather pretty violet handle with the other brushes within the range featuring other brightly coloured handles. The eyeshadow brush is nicely domed at the tip and is made completely out of synthetic hairs. Unlike most other eyeshadow brushes I own, this brush is rather dense and firm. It is still soft enough to blend other eyeshadows with and I find it is the perfect size for applying a darker eyeshadow colour into the crease of the eyelid. It isn't scratchy at all, nor do I find it irritating.

It is hard to gush about an eyeshadow brush but I do really like Seventeen's offering. it's soft but fairly firm and dense. It is the perfect size to use in the crease of the eyelid and for £1.99, it is something worth having in your make-up bag.
