Makeup Brushes from Tmart | Review




I was recently kindly sent this Bamboo Handle Makeup Brush Set* by Tmart. If I'm honest when they first got in touch with me I was a little hesitant because it's not really the type of website I would usually go to for beauty (they sell literally everything!) but these makeup brushes looked really nice so I was curious to try them out, plus retailing at only £10.86 for 11 brushes I was eager to discover if they were good value for money or if they were just cheap!

First Impressions | When I first opened these brushes my thoughts were fairly mediocre. They looked very synthetic and they kind of reminded me of paint brushes! I do like the wood effect handles though and I think that makes them look more expensive than they are. They felt very soft and I was especially looking forward to trying some of the smaller detailing brushes as they looked really good. 

Application | I definitely didn't struggle to find a brush for everything when applying a full face of makeup - there is plenty of choice and something I do like is that the brushes aren't labelled for anything in particular so you can choose whichever brush you like for different products (a plus if like me you always end up using brushes not for what they're intended!) I was pleasantly surprised at how well these applied my makeup - particularly the brush I used for foundation which I hadn't had high hopes for! Some of the brushes are definitely better than others - I would say I'll carry on using about half of them. They are very soft and none of the bristles fell out, which I would usually expect from cheaper brushes. They washed fine and easily and none of the bristles fell out while washing either.

Overall | Overall you get a lot of brushes for your money! I would recommend these to someone who is maybe just starting out with makeup and wants to build up a brush collection fast or to someone who is on a budget, but if you've already tried a variety of different brushes or are willing to spend a little more there are much better brushes out there!

Have you ever tried anything from this website? What are your favourite makeup brushes to use?
