Hey guys! Welcome back to Afro Mermaid. My little space on the net. I’m going to be talking about some fabulous new £7 Mermaid Makeup Brushes that I got recently – or Unicorn Makeup Brushes, whichever mythical creature you prefer (and yes I said £7). I do a lot of makeup and so of course I go through a lot of makeup brushes. I’m not the best at washing my brushes so I just buy new ones. I’m not rich I just buy them cheaply! So when I came across these gorgeous brushes, I HAD to have them and I vowed to actually look after them because they are actually works of art. At ONLY £7 how could I not.
The brushes have lovely pearlescent, twisted handles in a pastel lavender colour, with white bristles. You get about 9 different brushes for different parts of your face. In a Kabuki style they are perfect for all your buffing needs and applying product to your face.
The Lovely Mermaid Makeup Brushes Include;
- A flat-topped foundation brush – powder and liquid foundations
- A narrow, flat bristled brush for sculpting
- A fluffy head blush brush – for blending powders
- A couple of short, flat bristled brush – for brows, details, eyes, concealer
- A fan brush – so you can have the BEST highlight
- A plush, super-soft powder brush – for setting your base
- A soft, fluffy eyeshadow brush – blend away harsh lines after shadow application
- A short and stubby brush – for packing shadow onto the lid
I never actually use makeup brushes for what they’re supposed to be used for but I guess that’s the beauty of makeup – do what you want! I get the vibe of Mermaid Makeup Brushes rather than Unicorn Makeup Brushes because they remind me of sea shells. The brushes are so lovely to look out and they definitely do not look £7. I love shopping the internet for cheaper alternative because most times, you get good quality for a fraction of the price – as you can see here.
I think they are dupes for some other brushes selling at Beauty Bay – if you’d rather pay £45 feel free haha. The head of the brushes are a pretty rose gold colour and they have been sturdy and strong since I’ve been using them. I like the fact that the brush handles are tapered because it means they are much lighter and fit in a lot of makeup bags – perfect for travelling in style.
My favourite brush would have to be the fan highlighter brush. I look fabulous adding the finishing touches at the end of my makeup with the beautiful brush handles. The brushes work well I will most likely be purchasing them again when the time comes. If you want some of these brushes, check out the LightInTheBox website, eBay, Amazon or pay £45 at Beauty Bay.
