One thing I tend to collect is make up brushes. I only buy ones from brands I know of and this being a Revlon one that I found in my local Poundland store for of course just a pound I couldn't resist buying it and felt I had grabbed a bit of a bargain to add to my already huge collection. This came in clear plastic hanging case and on that I was simply told that it was and thats it apart from the fact the brush I bought was 030 and a quick look on the internet shows me there are a few Revlon Vital Radiance Eyeshadow Brushes available to buy in different shapes and sizes. My one is very long and thin and like a lightweight pencil in shape and a very light bronze colour and down the side of it we are clearly told what is it. The brush part of it is quite thick and wide and to me is a good blending brush made of natural hair and its really soft and the hairs cling together well with no stray ones poking out anywhere they shouldn't at all. Like I have just mentioned this is quite a large brush, perfect for blending rather than for precision work. I usually use this when I have applied my different colours and use this to sweep the colours together or use it for applying one colour to a larger part of my eyes. Powders cling exptremely well to this one and I must admit to enjoying using this one alot as the quality of it is superb and I still can't believe it only cost me a pound to buy. It looks nice, is simple to use and I simply wash mine out every week or so and let it dry naturally which hasn't impaired the quality of this at all. It isn't a brush widely sold and one you'll more than likely find like I did in places like Poundland and 99p shops though it is rather easily found on the internet to purchase!
I'm always on the look out for a beauty bargain. I'd never heard of the range 'Revlon Vital Radiance' before (only Revlon). So when I saw this eyeshadow brush in Ethel Austin for 99p, I was a little sceptical. Inspecting the packet, I decided that it looked decent enough quality to risk losing 99p on. The shape of the brush is that of a normal eyeshadow brush, however it's slightly slanted making it perfect for applying eyeshadow to the crease and outer corner of your eye. The handle is metallic pink plastic and very sturdy. The metal part is also very secure, which is a relief as a lot of cheaper brushes tend to fall apart after washing. It's very full and soft. Unlike most cheap brushes, it doesn't bend easily and shed everytime you use it. This brush can be used for putting colour over the entire lid, putting it in the crease or outer third of your eye or even for applying a highlight colour on your brow bone. In terms of the eye, it can be used for anything. I'm really impressed with this brush and have since bought two more as backups. Don't let the brand and price put you off, it's really a good brush.
