BLAIR ~♥: MakeUpShow Brushes Review

MakeUpShow is a well-known Chinese cosmetic brushes brand. Their brushes come in several ranges to accommodate varying budgets, and the ones that I’m reviewing in this entry are from the High and Black Series. Most of the bristles on these brushes are from natural hair, hence they are better at absorbing and trapping makeup media.

The brushes in High Series have short handles and these handles are made from black walnut. I adore these lacquered walnut handles, the finishing is absolutely beautiful!!

The fluffy, dense bristles in H01 are deliciously soft, which is typical for a brush made from squirrel hair. It deposits and buffs powder smoothly on my face without any scratching whatsoever. I use it with my NARS pressed powder to set my liquid foundations or BB creams.

H02 is very dense, very soft with a tip that comes to a fine point. It is perfect for precise blush placement. Some of you may not be keen on this brush, the small brush head only covers a small part of your cheek making it more time consuming to blend the colour out.

I did not detect any scent when I first received these brushes or even after washing them. Even after undergoing numerous vigorous washes the eye brushes did not experience any shedding or bleeding. On the other hand, the face brushes did bleed and shed but only during the first two washes.

I wouldn’t waste any more money with low quality cheap makeup brushes *coughs Etude House coughs* that are just plain shoddy. MakeUpShow brushes are very well made, fit my requirements perfectly and most importantly, they are very easy on the wallet. Besides that, brushes with natural bristles get softer with use unlike synthetic bristles. I these brushes!!

For those of you who are interested, MakeUpShow makeup brushes can be purchased from www.7bella.com. They are an authorized dealer based in Singapore and they provide worldwide shipping.
