This is my second Penneys post in the space of a couple of weeks. That must mean I am either going mad, or they are really stepping up their game! The last one was about their new individual eyeshadows here. It was more just a show and tell. This post is going to be on the Penneys PS Pro Makeup Brushes.
I’ve have been using these for a good chunk of time now, so think I can give a decent review on the ones I own. I wanted to use them and to clean them a few times, so I could show you properly how they fared.
They have pretty much all manner of brushes in this collection. I picked up the ones that I thought people would be interested in and of course I would actually use myself. They are all synthetic and from what I can see all under a fiver too.
I have nine brushes from the collection. Five eye brushes, and four face.
I have the Duo Precision Brush Set. This was €4.
It contains two eye brushes. One duo fiber pencil brush and a blending brush with a more splayed out tip.
The other double pack is The Duo Blending Brush Set. Again, this was €4. This contains a black bristled tapered shadow brush and then a blending brush very much like the Mac 217 just synthetic.
My last eyeshadow brush from the Penneys PS Pro Makeup Brushes range is probably my least favourite out of the ones I have. This is €2. It’s their Eyeshadow Shading Brush. Just personal preference but I find this a bit too soft to pack on colour with, and that’s what I would mostly use this shape brush for. I don’t get much use out of it.
I have their Touch Up Brush with is a duo fiber little domed brush. This costs €3. Generally, I use this for under eye powder or highlight.
This is the Large Duo Buffing brush is €4.
To me this is a standard enough large stippling brush. I have been loving this for applying bronzer.
I have been using their Large Powder brush for it’s complete name sake and loving it. This costs €4.
I’ve actually purchased very similar tapered brushes to this in the past that I found shed alot. The dye also ran dreadfully when I washed them. I can confidently say, neither of these things has happened with the Penneys version.
The last brush I have from the Penneys PS Pro Makeup Brushes range is their foundation brush. This costs €4.
This was the hardest brush to get my hands on and the one most people told me to get! It’s a soft, but densely packed, rounded, with a slight slant, kabuki brush.
Overall, I am a big fan of the Penneys PS Pro Makeup Brushes! I have used other brushes from the brand in the past that have ended up in the bin. These, however have made it into my daily rotation. I am picking up some of these brushes instead of my Zoeva, Sigma, Blank Canvas and even Mac. I have washed them all a few times now and haven’t had much hair shed as of yet. They all washed really well. (Have a click here to see how I clean my brushes).
The handles are plastic, so if you enjoy a more weighty makeup brush, these won’t be for you. All of the ones I have are soft, and do pretty much what they are supposed to do. I honestly cannot say anything bad about them, and generally I try to be objective here! If you’re in the market for some new brushes that work and don’t want to break the bank, look no further.
Have you tried any of them? What other ones do I need in my life?
