“ Type: Brushes / Brand: Ann Summers / Subcategory: Styling Brush „
I adore make up, I put it on most days and always use face powder, bronzers and blushers and the likes. I was mooching online at the Ann summers website the other day and about to place an an order on there as they had a huge sale on (which is still on as I place this review into the Dooyoo Archive!) when I spotted this. Never seeing a willy make-up brush before I do like unusual things and have a weird sense of humour and so ordered one!
The brush comes with a clear plastic hard cover on it (no pun intended!) and on a cardboard backing. The front of the cardboard is a lilac colour and on that there is what appears to be a sepia sort of Victorian looking girl picture of her holding this brush and I am told that it is 'Mildly Humorous' Willy Make-Up Brush 'Apply your rouge with this arousingly amusing make-up applicator' and that it is indeed an Ann summers Novelty Item. On the back of the cardboard we're again told what it is and told that the item is made in Hong Kong, that it is an adult product and contact details for Ann Summers are given. Nice enough packaging this is.
The Brush Itself:
Well if you can see the review photograph at the top of this page that is what this is. A willy blusher/bronzer/face powder brush for applying those make ups with!
Now cos this is a plastic made (in the main) item I didn't think it would be all that good quality and more of a novelty item but this brush is actually of excellent quality and feel.
It's long and the base is in the shape of a long thin....well willy! It has little wrinkle ridges to it to give it a firm grip (again no pun intended lol) and even has a small head to the bottom of it so your hand don't slide of it when using it (lol why did I want to write this review, I don't think I really thought that decision through very well now at all lol!). It's a light peachy pink colour, comfortable to handle with no sliding and simply feels a good quality willy handle!
Then before you reach the brush you have a gold rim which is long and sturdy and is a good colour gold so doesn't look tacky and of course the brush is tucked into that.
The brush itself is long, thick and made of black soft hairs. of course this isn't a kabuki brush and it is probably just nylon type hairs and synthetic but they don't malt or feel cheap and all in all this is a really nice brush, whether you like the design of it or not.
All in all I love this brush. Sure it gets comments but it is a working product and not just about its appearance. I use it loads and haven't had any problems with it so if you want to get your hands on a big willy brush at the moment they are on offer from Ann Summers at £2.50 each (usual price £5.00) and exclusive to Ann Summers.
