Ebay Brushes || Beauty






I love collecting and trying new make up brushes. If I'm honest, I'd buy every make up brush there is if I had the chance. However, money doesn't grow on trees does it? I love the feel of new make up brushes and trying them out for the first time. It's like my little bit of satisfaction. That sounds so weird...

Like every other beauty blogger and their dog, I own plenty of the trusty Real Techniques brushes which are like a God send. I have many brushes on my wishlist that I want to buy but they're just so expensive that I struggle to find the pennies to pay for them. I wanted a new set, however, and knew I had to splurge out and buy myself some new little beauties. After watching A LOT of Gabby from Velvetgh0st's videos, I was eyeing up the brushes she had used in many of her videos. Everybody was asking her where she had got them from and she kindly left a link to the brushes in her description box. So, of course, I had to go and check them out. They're from Ebay, which I was quite surprised about! I'm not exactly sure how to pronounce the name of the brand but I think it's called 'Jessup'. They came in a pack of ten and only cost around £12 which I thought was an absolute bargain compared to some of the brushes out there at the moment!

There are 5 face brushes and 5 eye brushes and I've used every single one of them. They're very soft, similar to the Real Techniques brushes but not as soft. They're quite dense and apply your make up so flawlessly. There are a variety of different shapes and sizes so that you can use them for different things. I feel like ever since using these brushes, especially the face brushes, my make up has looked more flawless than ever. As I don't wear eyeshadow on a daily basis, I don't use the eye brushes as much however, I always use them when I'm creating a look for a night out. The eye brushes make it so simple to apply eyeshadow, particularly in the crease. 

They come in a range of styles too, but I chose to go for the simple black and silver. You can buy them from here and I would highly recommend them! I've never thought about buying make up brushes from Ebay so I'm going to have to keep a look out for any new little additions!
