I have done it again. And you would of thought I would of learnt by now...but of course I didn't listen to myself, and I've underestimated Makeup Revolution. Again. In my defence, I am not normally a Christmas gift set sort of girl, I just find them a bit useless and would rather I spend my money on the exact items I want. Perfume sets in particular, I am looking at you.
So Makeup Revolution have a few Christmasy sort of gift sets out at the moment, at least I am guessing thats what they are going for, and I have the rather lovely Makeup Revolution Ultra Sculpt & Blend Collection (£14.99) in my makeup kit currently. So yes, as you can tell, I haven't passed this on for a Christmas gift, nor do I intend to. I love this set. All made from ridiculously soft synthetic hair, they can handle anything; cream, liquid and powder makeup.
The Bold Metals collection from Real Techniques has been the obvious idea behind this set, and includes three brushes and one blending egg sponge. First is the Powder, Sculpt & Blend Brush, which has been blending out my contouring efforts, and doing such a good job. Not many brushes seem to meet my contour standards (I do hate a stripy face) but this little brush knows whats it is doing.
Next is the Cheek & Highlight Sculpt & Blend Brush for sculpting and making my contour look that bit more professional. Somehow it is also cheek shaped, and pays my cheeks the perfect amount of attention, and cuts my job of the painful length of time blending can take. On that note, the Ultra Metals Eyeshadow Blender, does the exact same thing, but for my eyes. This easily tops some of my favourite eyeshadow brushes, hands down.
And lastly, the Foundation & Base Blending Sponge. The beloved egg sponge, we all know what these do, and no other words are needed, but if you don't have this egg in your bag, you don't know what you're missing.
And did you really think Miss Shallow over here would finish this post without stating the obvious? The shiny rose gold that you can't miss? Nope. Just look at those handles. I am sorry Makeup Revolution for the underestimation, but then you could also throw in a apology as I have realised how selfish I am because of you...as this set isn't being let out my sight.
