If you have watched any Youtube videos or read any beauty blogs over that last few months, you will surely have head of the infamous Artis brushes or even the “cheaper” MAC versions. Now Artis face brushes are around the £50 mark which I just cannot justify and even the MAC ones are £35 ish. For me, these are way out of my price range so I hit the internet to find a cheaper alternative.
I managed to find one on Amazon for the pricey sum of £1.79 including postage. Now this is more my price range right now! The company is called Tonsee and has a few different sized brushes, but this is the one I picked up. It is smaller than some of the big Artis brushes but I thought this would be a good size to try out first as I could use it for both foundation and concealer.
So what did I think? Well at first, the whole concept of using a toothbrush style brush really threw me. But after getting used to the “spreading” technique needed, I was pleasantly surprised! It did apply makeup very smoothly and my favourite bit about it was how well it blended product down my neck! It made that really effortless. It was a little more difficult in all the harder to reach places of my face, like my nose and the inner sections of my under eye, but overall it performed really well.
The brush uses synthetic hair that is really soft and they have been cut into quite a nice shape to say that this was so cheap to buy. I’ve also been impressed as none of the hairs have shed onto my face, something which has annoyed me in the past about cheap brushes. The handle is quite sturdy but is quite cheap looking, but then you do get what you pay for there.
Overall I was quite impressed with this brush. If, like me, you are wanting to try out the latest trend without forking out all that money, then definitely give this one a try. For the money you can’t go wrong! Let me know what you think!
