Beauty ¦ Bella and bear makeup brushes

Is it just me or can you never have enough brushes. I'm always short of a clean blending brush or a fresh foundation brush. So when the lovely people over at Bella and bear offered to send me some of their new brush range I was super happy to try them out.
First off they sent me the Lberian lynx brow brush* which is a super small angled brush which works well for both winged liner and for getting a really precise brow. The spooley on the other end is nice and firm and doesn't take out to much product when you run it through the brows. This is a really lovely quality brush which has washed really well. I think I may have finally found my perfect brow brush.

Next up they sent me over the Lynx foundation brush* which is a very dense stippling brush. Personally this doesn't work for me as a foundation brush however for cream blushes and bronzers it's fabulous. Due to how dense it is it picks up enough pigment so that it isn't blended away. This brush has also washed very well and the bristles are really nice and soft.

Finally they sent me over the Cats eyes eye brush set* I really like the variety of shapes and sizes of brushes in this set however in all honesty I found the small tapered brush and the blending brush to have very scratchy bristles. Once I'd washed them they have softened a little however I only tend to reach for them when I have no other clean brushes. This being said I love the brow brush and the crease brush. The crease brush is the perfect size for my eye and I always find it applies a really nice neat bit of colour into the crease. Finally for this set is the flat shadow brush. I don't use these often but this is nice and dense and it packs the colour on well.

Overall I'd recommend the Bella and bear brushes as they are affordable but good quality.
*These products were sent to me free of charge to review however all opinions are my own.
