I've become accustom to using the same brushes to apply my makeup day in, day out, and I have a real hard time finding new brushes which compare to the comfort and ease of using these particular brushes (Including; Real Techniques Buffing Brushes, Eco Tools Eye Shader Brush and a couple of my favourite, and very old blusher brush and angled liner brush which I don't even know the brand of anymore). However when I came across the Nanshy website through reviews from other bloggers, I really wanted to try these out for myself. I was kindly sent some of the brushes to try out, so I put all my other brushes into storage and have just used these brushes alone for the past week! Let me tell you how I've got on...
First of all, can I just point out how beautiful the brushes are! Their pearlescent handle and chrome topping creates a beautiful effect, compared to the dull plain black of my other brushes anyway, so I was almost instantly won over by their appearance alone. The handles are well sized which makes them easy to hold and work with. The bristles are synthetic, but are so unbelievably soft! The bristles are densely packed into the metallic topper, and so far I haven't found them to shed at all!
Nanshy Round Buffer Brush*
The dome shaped soft synthetic bristles are fluffy and dense, which makes applying foundations a dream. The brush can be used to apply cream, liquid and even mousse based formulas.
Nanshy Flat Top Buffer Brush*
This perfectly flat top shaped brush allows for easy blending and buffing of your foundation, finishing powder, blushers or bronzers. You could even use the brush to stipple cream/liquid foundations onto the skin using this brush. I've found it particularly good for buffing finishing powder into the skin after applying my liquid foundation.
Nanshy Large Shader Eye Brush*
This large shader brush is an essential for any eye make up look, I've been using and found it perfect for applying a base colour to your lids and also for blending.
Nanshy Angled Detailer Eye Brush*
Perfect for those hard to reach areas, ie. lining the lashes, and filling in your brows, the bristles are firm but soft and allows for precise application, yet still being gentle on the skin.

Overall I've found the Nanshy brushes very good quality, and easily comparible, if not better than my normal range of cosmetics brushes, and am glad to have discovered this brand! I will definitely be looking to purchase more brushes in the range. I'd love to get my hands on their Nanshy Luxury Brush Set (link) for sure! All their brushes are available to buy from Amazon.
