Bargain Brush And My New Love

I have been wanting face and body for some time now,a light coverage is all I ever yurn for. I was going to go down the Revlon colour stay route until I tested it out and remembered why I put a stop to that in the first place. Ummm hello breakout! That will not do for me Revlon.

So after a spot of bridal shopping (for the bestie) I hopped footed it to selfridges and had myself colour matched. I am indeed a MAC virgin so I will take great pleasure in telling the world im a C4 (wateva that means lol)

Immediately I loved the natural dewy look,it was perfect for me.

Whilst it was being applied I couldnt help but eye up the minuscule brush the guy was using. Until I heard it was more than £20!!! I mean lets be real,this brush was about the same size as my middle finger.

Im no fool, I headed to superdrug to pick up the dupe for £6.99. Thats it up top by the way. Did I fool any mac lovers?

Heres what it says about the brush.

For me personally, if it looks the same and feels the same its probably going to do the same thing, whether or not it has a funky number on the handle.

Bargain I'd say!

  1. Haha you fool'd me! dont blame you for findin a dupe for a brush, its what i did ol :-D xxx by the way how is the body foundation/? im always curious to buy it but just never get round to it :(

  2. Will you be doing a review of face and body? I've been wanting it for a while, but I'm still not quite sure..
    Ah it's a shame Revlon Colourstay doesnt work for you, I love it!


  3. do you have any problems with the colour of the brush bleeding when you clean the brush?

    Agree with you on the brushes. I dont even buy M.A.C the reason being they getting crazy with these numbered brushes. They even cost more in the U.S. I do however wanna try the face and body foundation, everyone says it's the best and all the gurus seem to used it.

  5. @Amina just bought it today so haven't washed it yet.x

    @Sammie @dainty I will do a review if ud like,ive been wanting it for ages and after the mua applied it I fell in love instantly. Light buildable coverage and very very natural looking.x

  6. Heya hun! oh my goodness thank you so much for this post! Ima gonna run down to Superdrug right this second for that brush! :) I also just can't justify spending that much on makeup brushes! I've also been quite eager to try this foundation, I don't like anything too heavy... would you recommend then??
    Aysh xoxo

  7. @Shontel @Aysh Im not usually a go too mac person but face and body is worth it alone just for the amount of product u get.I would definitely recommend and Ive only had it on my face for 5 hours. but I love it :-P

  8. Wow, you weren't kidding! That really is a bargain brush...sounds amazing!

  9. I really want to try the Face & body, only thing that's put me off so far, is that apparently it goes off after 6 months. So I am thinking I'd never use such a massive bottle in 6 months.
    But really one day I *will* get it.
    Wow, I had no idea you could get Mac dupe brushes in Superdug, MUST LOOK ASAP!
    (I have the Mac one you got the dupe of, and it shed like a dog)

  10. Good on you for finding a dupe for the brush. I think Mac brushes are so overpriced!! xx

  11. I was going to buy that brush but I heard from some people that is sheds quite a lot? Have you experienced this or not? x

  12. @Kirsty I used it today and washed it,Iv had no problems. I hear the mac version of this sheds a lot. For £6.99 you cant actually go wrong,thank god for superdrug

  13. Sounds great then! Did it apply well?

  14. I think I may have to hop along to Superdrug myself-is it their own brand of brushes? X

  15. @a pocket full of dreams It said QVS on the packet but it will be in amongst the superdrug brushes.x
