I have always preferred applying my foundation with a sponge to get a flawless finish but when I saw the new craze over oval brushes I had to give them a go! After watching one of Chloe Morello's videos where she uses the Artis brushes I had a look online and I just couldn't justify spending that much money on a brush I wasn't 100% sure I would get on with. You can find the Artis brushes here, they retail around 35USD for the smallest and the prices go up from there - plus shipping to the UK.

I took a look at cheap versions online and came across this rose gold 5 piece set for only £5.64 with free post and packaging so I couldn't resist. When I ordered them the estimated delivery time was about 30 days due to shipping from Hong Kong and it arrived after about 3 weeks but I mean with free postage, who am I to complain?

I am SO SO pleased I took a chance and purchased them - they make cream product application so easy, smooth and fast!

Oval 9 - This is my favourite brush out of the lot, it has so many uses as it covers a large area on the face so doesn't take much work at all. I would use this for primer, foundation, cream bronzer or setting powder.

Oval 7 - I love this brush for concealer and cream contouring, it's the perfect size.

Oval 6 - This brush is absolutely perfect for precise blending and applying cream eyeshadow/primer all over the lid.

Linear 3 - This brush is supposedly for liquid liner however I actually found the bristles way too long to make the liner precise. It is however perfect for smudging liner and applying shadow under the eye too.

Circle 2 - I didn't like this brush for eyeshadow at all, although it works really well for applying lip colour and also popping concealer on blemishes.

I ordered the brushes here. I would definitely recommend them for the price they cost me!

Have you tried oval brushes? What do you think of them?



  1. Great post! I've been curious about these for ages and knew there would soon be cheaper alternatives available. Like you, I've always preferred applying my makeup with sponges like the beauty blender, but I am keen to try these!xx
