B. Sweet Candy Shop SS15 Collection

For me, the arrival of Spring / Summer every year sparks a big change: clothes, hair, attitude and (perhaps the easiest to do) make up. The B. Sweet collection has some absolutely gorgeous bits and pieces that will help me transition and embrace the glowy, pretty look I tend to gravitate towards in warmer months.

(P.S. I’m currently only my hols in New York – eeeee! – but I somehow got organised enough to schedule some blog posts).

No7 Make Up Brushes Range

No7 are really impressing me at the moment! Today I have another great launch from the team. I’m always looking out for affordable and high quality make up brushes as I like to have lots of options for that inevitable day when you realise all of your brushes need to be washed and you have no time! The No7 team have relaunched their make up brush range, including 5 brand new brushes.

Nanshy Masterful Collection Make Up Brushes

I had heard a lot about Nanshy make up brushes from various blogs and had been very intrigued so when Nanshy contacted me and asked if I’d like to have a play with their brand new Masterful Collection I was super excited.

I have reviewed the Real Techniques Expert Face Brush before (HERE) but wanted another one so that I could replace my foundation brush midweek to save on washing it so often. This brush is £9.99 from Boots.

When I saw that Real Techniques brushes were on ‘buy one get one half price’ in Boots I thought it would be rude not to get a few more! So I also got the following:

Real Techniques Stippling Brush: this has actually replaced my expert face brush as my favourite foundation brush. It is so soft and the different lengths of the bristles means that you get better manoeuvrability with the brush and a smoother, cleaner finish. You can also use it with blushers and highlighters, which is handy when you’re going away and only have room for one brush! As with all of the Real Techniques brushes, there are brilliant tutorial videos on the website HERE. This brush is £11.99 from Boots.

Real Techniques Blush Brush: I had my eye on this brush for a while as I heard it was a great blush brush but also good for contouring due to the tapered end. This is a lovely big brush that picks up a good amount of product but is so fluffy that you can easily buff and blend to your heart’s content! This brush is £9.99 from Boots.

Real Techniques Shading Brush: There isn’t much to say about this brush other than it applies eyeshadow very well! It’s not particularly groundbreaking or different, it just does the job well. It’s sturdy but soft so it doesn’t feel harsh on the soft skin around your eye. This brush is £7.99 from Boots.

All in all I’m pretty happy with my Real Techniques haul. Which of their brushes do you love? Are there any I should add to my collection?
