Hello there! I’m currently writing on a very rainy and dull Monday evening, so I thought I’d blog about something a little bit different! If you’ve been reading for a while you’d know I usually like to blog about things lifestyle/health/mental health, but every now and then there’s other things I want to talk about, particularly if I feel like sharing something new. Though I don’t blog about makeup/beauty (well, not very often, anyway!) I recently had the opportunity to try out some of Lab2’s makeup brushes, and I have to say I’m thoroughly impressed!
Because we were oh-so-lucky, we received three different sets: I know, it felt like Christmas day! Here we have ‘The Triple Threat Multi Purpose Brush’, the ‘On a Powder Trip’ brush, and the ‘Strokes of Genius’ eye brush set…wow!
Above we have the ‘Strokes of Genius’ brush set, which contains a whopping 5 different brushes (and one of which is double-ended) and is the perfect variety of brushes for applying all sorts of eye makeup.
First things first; the packaging. I think overall the packaging is really effective. It’s eye-catching, professional, and oh-so sleek. The matte black outer of the boxes gives the product real high-end appeal, and I love the flashes of fluorescent orange card as a welcome contrast to the black on the inside. What is also rather lovely is the added instructions on the back (which you can also cut out and keep) and overall I think the design is rather modern and fun.
The packaging is very similar for both the ‘On a Powder Trip’ brush (as above) and the ‘Triple Threat’ brush, albeit for a few minor details. Again, they look really sleek and smart, and the contrast of colours is sure to be eye-catching sitting on a shelf!
What is really fabulous about these brushes is how soft the bristles are; they feel really luxurious on the face, though I do have to admit the ‘On a Powder Trip’ brush did shed on initial use. However, since the initial use it has stopped shedding completely. The handles of the brushes are soft and coated with a matte and easily-holdable (is that a word?!) coating. What is really useful is that each of the brushes is labelled on the handle, so you’ll always know what they’re meant for.
The brushes use ‘Fiber-luxe’ technology, which is why they’re so soft on the skin whilst ensuring an even application with very little fall out, which is always a bonus. This is all explained on the package, which is very useful if you really want to be sure of what you’re buying!
All-in-all I think these brushes would be fabulous gift or a little treat to yourself. I’ve always been loyal to ecotools and have a great selection of their brushes, but it’s great to widen my horizons a little bit and try something new and I’m sure these brushes will have a place on my dressing table for months to come! Let me know if you decide to try these. I hope you’ll love them just as much as I do. Check them out over on Superdrug ; there’s a sale on them at the minute so have a look and grab a bargain!
Hope you’re having a great Wednesday!
