Ebay Brushes

I  have never owned a proper eye make up brush set and I have always wanted some of the seriously expensive ones from MAC but that was never going to happen so when I came across a set from ebay I thought I would give them a go. I was slightly unsure about buying the brushes on ebay as I initially thought they would be a waste of money as they were so cheap ( were taking under a tenner ) but when they arrived I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the brushes. Seeing as they were only around eight pound it is naturally that they aren't top quality and in time they will start to loose their hairs but I am really enjoying using the set.

My favourite brush so far is the black fluffy brush which has to be a Mac dupe. It is great for blending  in the crease , applying a wash of colour on the eyelid or simply adding a contour colour to the outer corner or crease. This set is perfect for anyone wanting to experiment more with their eye make up but still don't want to spend a fortune on eye brushes. The real tester will be the washing of the brushes that will either end in two ways disaster or success I dread to think the outcome!

Have you ever tried ebay brushes ? 


  1. I've bought a set from ebay before I've had them about a year now and they have been washed countless times and they are still good as new! xx

  4. I've been thinking about buying some from eBay - but I'm scared they'll fall apart! These look great though xx


  5. They look quite nice, I need a good blending brush so the black fluffy one sounds good. I hope they last for you!

  7. I like how concise this post is! Like you, I've wanted an eye makeup brush set for ages. I've had my eye on the Real Techniques set- I've never tried ebay brushes. I like the sound of the fluffy mac dupe. I just hate brushes that shed though- there's nothing worse than going around with a hair on your face.

    Thanks for sending your link in the #bbloggers chat. I'm now following!

    1. thank you so far they haven't shed at all the mac dupe is so worth it I thought i wouldn't like it but its a staple now

  8. I bought a set on eBay once and it's safe to say after washing them they weren't all that good. But these look decent, would love to know how they are after a wash. Xx
