Princess Rose Makeup Brushes

I cannot help myself when it comes to oval makeup brushes and found these gems by accident when looking for other makeup accessories.These brushes come as a 10piece set and with a free pouch bag to store them in.They come in 3sets of colours, which are Rose Gold, Silver and Sky Blue.If you've been following my blog for a while, you know that I am completely obsessed with rose gold, but the sky blue brushes stood out to me most.I'm not a massive fan of the film, but it kind of reminds me of the icy blue dress that Elsa wears in Frozen and these brushes are extremely pretty.
The handle is plastic which I was expecting, but they do give off a nice finish as if they are made of metal.Can you imagine if they were made out of metal?they would be way too heavy to be applying that foundation!The design on the handle are like pressed in diamonds which I know is a weird way to explain it, but thats just the way I see them.On the back of the brush at the top, its mirrored as shown in the second picture.The bristles are synthetic hair, being very gentle on the skin and apply liquid based products very well.
I've tested it with two of my liquid foundations, with them both being full coverage.One of them was the NARS Lumunious Weightless Foundation(review), which is a very liquidy foundation and the other was the Kat Von D Lock-It Foundation(review), which is a fairly thick foundation.I did go in with the biggest oval brush in the centre first, but found that it was a fairly big brush to pack on foundation, so went with the second brush on the right to apply it.

Both of the foundations glided onto my skin like silk and the brushes didn't soak up either of them, not wasting any product.The Lock-It can be a bit of a pain sometimes when I applied it with my Zoeva brush, because it would leave it looking a bit patchy, but the oval brush smoothes it all out, leaving my skin looking flawless.Also, with the Lock-It foundation, you don't need a lot of it to go a long way and you need less when using the oval brush because its able to distribute the product all over your face evenly.The NARS did apply just as good, but didn't have as much of an improvement compared to the other one.
After I've blended my foundation and concealer, I wanted to see how the tiny oval brush would work with my highlighter.Taking the Anastasia Beverly Hills Sweets Glow Kit, I dipped the brush slightly into the Butterscotch shade, and as you can see above, it picked up a lot of product.I was only meant to be applying it to my brow bone, but because the brush picked up so much, I ended up applying it to the tip of my nose and my cupids bow.
I'm in love with these brushes and I'm very impressed on how they've done my makeup too.I haven't tried the other 5 thin brushes yet, because to be honest I have no idea what they are for or if I will use them, but I have no doubts that they will be as good as the other ones that I've tested.Below is my finished makeup after applying some red lipstick.This 10piece brush set is currently on sale for £16 (I paid £27) and are available from Princess Rose Brushes.
