Royal Enhance Brushes

I'm never one to fork out when it comes to make up brushes. Personally, I'd rather spend a bit more on decent make up and a little less on brushes. This is because, in my opinion, if you know just where to look, you can find fab quality make up brushes without breaking the bank. I wouldn't be without my beloved ELF Studio Powder Brush and Blusher Brush, which ARE great quality brushes, but only £3.50 each.

For years I have found my foundation brushes in a cheapy shop in my town (think Home Bargains/Body Care-type places). They usually cost about £1.50/£2.00 and are excellent quality. The brand I'm most fond of for these bargain brushes is Royal, in particular their 'Enhance' range. So when I saw this beauty sitting on the shelf, I had to have it....

Kabuki Brush, Powder Brush, Foundation Brush, Blusher Brush, Eye Shadow Brush, Eye Shadow Applicator, Blending Brush

The set costs £8.99 and includes a Kabuki Brush, an angled Foundation Brush, a Powder Brush, a supposed Blusher Brush (although it's tiny), an Eye Shadow Brush, Eye Shadow Applicator and Blending Brush. I have used Royal 'Enhance' brushes before and they are superb quality; the brushes are the softest I've ever owned and make make up application SO much easier. Yes, the packaging is cheap and the case is cheaply made but it's the brushes that count, and they are fab. I also love the fact that they are made from synthetic fibres - I never buy real hair brushes as you can never know where it comes from, plus I personally believe synthetic fibres are a much better quality. For 7 brushes at £8.99 I don't think you can go wrong with this set, and I am very excited to use it. Hooray for cheap brushes!

Has anyone else used any Royal brushes before? What do you think, is it better to buy cheap brushes or do you prefer high-end?

  2. I think it's good to mix it up a bit - there are a few MAC brushes that I use (and love) regularly, but then again I've had some amazing ones from ELF (that powder brush - heaven, and great for stippling liquid foundation too!) ...

    I've never tried Royal brushes - but they certainly look lovely (although not sure how that one is a blush one, lol!) - the angled foundation brush looks pretty unique though!

  3. i agree with @girlinthecity..I definitely mix it up when it comes to brushes. I love the expensive ones for foundation and eyes but buy cheaper ones for blusher and eyeshadow application. Love this post though cause it shows that there's so much out there, might check this brand out! x
