Trying the trend - Primark PS...Pro make-up brush

If you're a fan of beauty and Instagram then you can't have failed to notice that there's a new type of make-up brush in town. I don't know where they've come from and I don't even know if there is actually a name for this type of brush (Oval brushes?), but they've definitely become quite popular. I've not seen anything like them before and was curious as to how they apply your make-up and if they're any good. I certainly didn't want to pay a lot of money for one though as I believe with one brand you can pay something like £60 for just one brush. But when I was having a bit of a Primark haul I spotted them within their PS...Pro range so I picked one up for just £3.

PS...Pro blending make-up brush

This is one of their blending brushes (although are all of these types of brushes meant for blending products?) and there was another one with a slightly larger head for £1 more along with various different sizes. It features a simple black plastic handle with PS...Pro printed on it (which has already rubbed off after 2/3 uses) and what I assume must be synthetic, fawn coloured bristles. As with all of these brushes the bristles are quite densely packed.

As I expected this really does take some getting used as you're going from holding a brush horizontally to your face to vertically and it does feel kind of awkward. I keep finding I lose momentum and kind of forgot what to do with my hand to get it to work. I also keep knocking into my nose or kind of falling off the edge of my face. I've only used it a few times and I'm still finding it awkward. 

It feels nice to use and although I suspect you are only supposed to use a light hand I do find myself pressing down and I'm not entirely convinced that the head won't eventually snap off at some point as I can feel it bending. I have spotted a picture on Twitter of somebodies brush, not necessarily from this range though, that had snapped. I think these also might be ones that you have to wash quite often (I know you really should be doing that anyway) as the dense head does seem to hold on to some product in some places and look a bit clogged up. I haven't washed this one as of yet so I'm not sure how they wash, but if it's been a while since the last wash I think it might require a good clean out.

In terms of how it applied my foundation, yes I was happy. It didn't apply as flawlessly as you'd get with bouncing a sponge, but was just as good as my standard buffing brush of choice. I can't see me changing over to using this one regularly though as it's no better than my brush of choice and as I said feels more awkward to use.

Have you given one of these brushes a try?

    1. I was too, that's why I went in for about as cheap as possible! I'm not sure if they'll be sticking around or if they'll turn into a bit of a fad that slips away after a while x
