I’ve said it before and I will say it again – behind every perfect makeup application is the brushes that aided you to create that look. Seriously though, where would we be without them? I’m forever looking for new makeup brushes and cruelty free brands that offer them to help with my application so when Nanshy offered to send some of their brushes for me to try out I just couldn’t refuse.
I actually discovered the brand nearly two years ago when I started going cruelty free. Nanshy are based in the UK and 100% cruelty free. They specialise in makeup application tools using synthetic bristles which are made by hand and ensuring that each product is top quality before hitting the shelves.
I received seven brushes all individually packaged in clear and black packaging with useful tips in what products the brushes will work best with and how to use them. I pulled them all out of their packaging and the first thing I noticed was how soft the bristles felt as well as how lightweight they were. I was kindly gifted the white handle ones however there is also a choice of black if you prefer. The brushes I received are: Foundation brush, Concealer brush, Stippling brush, Contour brush, Large Shader brush, Tapered Crease brush and Angled Detailer brush.
I have had a couple of weeks to test them out with various different products and honestly I love them! The quality of the brushes is something that I just can’t get over. I’ve always used Real Techniques or Eco Tools so I didn’t really have anything else to compare them to. I have always used the Real Techniques Buffing Brush to apply foundation but I started using the Stippling brush to apply my foundation and I am now fully converted. It takes a little longer to buff it into your skin but the finish looks flawless and leaves a really beautiful finish. I have loved using the eyeshadow brushes for blending in my eyeshadow too.
If you are after some new makeup brushes, I recommend checking out Nanshy! Have you tried any of their products before?
