Today is 1st December, the fist day of Blogmas and it is now officially okay to get excited about Christmas (like I wasn't already though). Basically I am going to do 25 Christmas related posts for the next 25 days which will include gift ideas, festive food ideas and home items to make your house more festive.
Today's post is a review of the eye brush set from Nanshy. I think this would make a perfect gift for anyone whether they are just starting out with makeup or already have enough make up to last 100 years.
The first thing I would like to say about Nanshy products are they are made with antibacterial, synthetic vegan bristles. They are a cruelty free company and have the bunny logo on the box of the brush set. The brush set contains 7 eye brushes and each brush can be used in multiple ways. The handles of the brushes are pearl coated which makes them look elegant and they are a bit different to the standard black handles of most make up brushes.
The precise bent eyeliner brush in my opinion is the most unique brush in this set. Its not the type of brush that I have seen before and I only own straight eyeliner brushes. The bristles are quite firm on this brush and they go into a point at the top so it makes eyeliner application really easy. I do really like this brush however it isn't in my top 3 from this set.
The flat definer brush is a great brush to apply eyeshadow on the lower lash line and under the eye as the bristles are in such a thin line. The bristles are really dense and I personally find the brush good for applying concealer in precise places such as around the nose. This is the only brush from Nanshy which I have used and experienced shedding, however it isn't that bad that I have stopped using the brush.
The large shader brush is one of my favourite brushes in the set. It is amazing at packing on colour all over the lid which is something I have found difficult to do with natural hair make up brushes. The brush is really dense but still really soft to use which I love.
The blending eyeshadow brush is a great blending brush however I prefer to use it to blend out the top of my eyeshadow instead of the crease colour as it is quite a large brush. The bristles are fairly flimsy which makes it more effective for blending.
The tapered crease brush is similar to my favourite eye brush from japonesque. The point at the top makes it really easy to apply a colour to the crease before blending. The bristles are quite dense which helps with precise application of colour. Its also great for applying eyeshadow to the inner corner of the eye.
The eye crease brush is basically a massive fluffy brush. I love it! I've been using it for under eye concealer as well as for blending eyeshadow in the crease. The bristles are long and slightly domed at the top which really gives it that fluffy feel. This is definitely one of my favourite brushes in the set.
The angled detailer brush is the perfect eyebrow brush. I haven't had an angled brush like this before and normally just use the tiny one that came with my HD Brows palette. I have also used it to apply eyeshadow along the lashline to create definition and it really is precise and easy to work with.
I love this brush set and since I got it I haven't used any other eye brushes, I think im converted. The set costs £29.95 on Amazon which works out at around £4 per brush which is really good value for such high quality brushes.
