Beauty | A Few Brush Works Beauty Tools.*


An area on my vanity that's lacking is my makeup brushes. I heavily rely on my few Real Techniques brushes, so when Nadine at Sparkle PR invited me to try a few goodies from Brush Works I jumped at the chance. 

I was lucky enough to receive three different items from Brush Works; the Powder Brush, Complexion Sponge & a set of Crystal Cuticle Sticks.

Brush Works Powder Brush.*
I love the look of this powder brush & although the bristles are shaped perfectly for defining the face they feel very different from anything else I've used. Brush Works use Taklon synthetic bristles in their products, which don't feel as flexible as others that I've tried so admittedly I was worried about this one before trying it. The brush picks up well and disperses the product perfectly onto my skin. I've found that the product doesn't cling to the brush either after applying to the face so that's amazing, as I feel like I'm getting the full benefit of the product. I've been pleasantly surprised with this brush. it's definitely made a welcome appearance in my vanity.

Brush Works Complexion Sponge.*
The complexion sponge was probably the tool I was most excited to try as I used to use my Real Techniques complexion sponge quite regularly until my dog got her teeth into it... Story of my life! It's smaller in comparison, but shaped better especially for blending product under the eyes. The Brush Works complexion sponge is super squidgy & expands really well when damp which made the application process super duper easy. I generally find applying foundation with a sponge to be quite a time consuming process, I much prefer the quick swish of a brush however I think this tool is incredible for patting in concealer. I'm suffering with breakouts at the moment and have found using the Brush Works complexion sponge the best tool for covering them! It's a beaut!

Brush Works Crystal Cuticle Sticks.*
Something I don't take as much care of than I should, is my nails so these cuticle sticks are definitely going to inspire me to do so. The sticks have two sides to them, one slanted to push the cuticles down and the other a brightly coloured rough nib to exfoliate. The bright colours definitely make them more fun and inviting so I can't wait to keep using these! Bring on nice smooth nails - Wahoo!

Have you tried any Brush Works products before? What are your favourite makeup brushes?
