Furless Makeup Brushes Review*

Using makeup brushes on a daily basis is something a lot of us do. I still do tend to go traditional sometimes and use my fingers but for the most part, makeup brushes are a must. We all have a stash of brushes that no matter how roughly we handle them, they will still be our best friends. I have a few of such 'friends' from the brand Furless. I have reviewed this brand of brushes before here so you can check that out if you are interested.

Furless was kind enough to send me a few brushes to review and here they are. The brushes I will be reviewing today are 

The Perfectly Pink Stippling Brush $10
This brush is a multi-tasker. I use it for blush and highlighter, sometimes even powder and bronzer. It picks up the right amount of product and blends it into the skin so smoothly. I have washed this brush thrice already and I am so happy that it does not shed at all.  I love Furless brushes for the fact that they do not shed on me at all.

The Bronze Blending Brush $9.95
I already own one of this brush and I was so happy to see another one when my package arrived. This brush is great for blending eyeshadows and even concealer under the eye. I absolutely adore this brush and recommend it above all.

The Purple Concealer Brush $9
I am not a huge fan of this brush as I don't like very stiff synthetic brushes for concealer but this brush is great to apply loose eyeshadows, pigments and even cream eyeshadows. I don't tend to use it very often but its not a bad brush.

L-R Perfectly pink stippling brush, Bronze blending brush, Purple concealer brush.

Furless Brushes are 100% Cruelty free and Vegan. They are really soft brushes and they do last a very long time. I have been using my old Furless brushes for more than a year now and they still look like brand new. They are very affordable and provide flat rate shipping to Australia. There is International shipping available too if you do not live in Australia and it is very reasonable.

Right now they also have 15% off their website. Just add the coupon code "15ME" to your order. 

Have you tried the Furless brushes before? What do you think of them?

Daiso Eyelash Haul

I have been loving shopping at Daiso which is a Japanese store where every product is only $2.80. There are some products you may find cheaper else where but for the most part I think a lot of stuff is worth buying from here.
Daiso has a range of makeup, skincare, false eyelashes, tools etc and I bought a pair of lashes from them last week.  I was so impressed with the quality and longevity of the lashes that I went and stocked up on a few more. 

The lashes I got were the Brown Mix so basically they are not completely black false lashes but I feel these are more natural looking than dark, black plastic lashes. I got the Fairy style which are more like the wispies, the Dolly style and the Romantic style which are more natural looking. I also bought a lash glue which dries clear. 

If you have a Daiso near you go and grab one of these to try. For $2.80 a pair which last atleast 3 uses (some lashes from Daiso have lasted me 5 uses and more), I think it is a bargain.

Have you tired any lashes from Daiso? Which ones are your favourite?
