In yesterday's blog post which featured a Christmas gift guide for women, I included a rather pricey high street brush set from Real Techniques. Now I know that the RT brushes are probably high on a lot of beauty lovers Christmas lists this year, but let me tell you about a cheaper (and very nearly as good as) alternative if your budget is a little tight this year, or even if you just fancy treating yourself to some new brushes!
This is the USpicy Make Up Brush Set - which comes in its own rather glam looking gift box. The brushes have white wooden handles, with gold toned ferrules, and each one comes individually wrapped in a plastic sleeve. The overall appearance of this set gives the impression that it costs a lot more than what it actually does - just £17.99! Meaning each brush costs just £1.79!
There are 10 brushes which include a range face and eye brushes; Flat Brush, Tapered Brush, Flat Angled Brush, Angled Brush, Round Brush, Precision Flat Brush, Precision Tapered Brush, Precision Flat Angled Brush, Precision Angled Brush, Precision Round Brush
The brushes are made using synthetic fibres, and let me tell you they are super, super soft on the skin, and so lovely to use! I actually do own several brands of makeup brushes, including Real Techniques, and I would find it very hard to tell the difference between the feel of them and the USpicy versions. The brushes are not only pretty but sturdy too - so will last well. I should also mention that I've washed the brushes and there was absolutely no fall out of the bristles when doing so!
After trying these brushes for myself, although a little sceptical at first I would now highly recommend them to my friends, family and beauty lovers alike! This would make a fantastic Christmas gift idea, especially as it comes already nicely presented in its own gift box!
