Cei care mă cunosc personal ştiu că sunt o maniacă atunci când vine vorba de pensule pentru machiaj. M-aţi putea numi chiar "Makeup brush hoarder". Aşa că dacă cineva îmi propune să testez pensule, oare cum aş putea să refuz? Uite aşa m-am ales eu cu trei frumuseţi de pensule marca Beau-make (Abbamart)
People who know me personally know that I am a maniac when it comes to makeup brushes. You can even call me a "Makeup brush hoarder". So, when somebody proposes me to test some brushes, how in the world could I say no? That's how I got these three beauties by Beau-make (Abbamart)
- Flat Top Synthetic Kabuki Brush - $9.50 (~30 lei)
De când am primit F80 de la Sigma, am fost iremediabil îndrăgostită de pensulele flat top pentru că fac aplicarea fondului de ten atât de simplă şi lipsită de probleme. Pensula asta, în particular nu e la fel de deansă ca şi F80-ul, dar îşi face treaba admirabil. O pot spăla foarte uşor şi nu am văzut să piardă vreun fir de păr la spălare sau aplicare.
Ever since I got the F80 Sigma Brush, I've been irremediably in love with flat tops. They make my foundation application so simple! This particular flat top kabuki is not as dense as the F80 but it does the job perfectly. I can wash it super easily and I didn't see one bristle falling off during washing or application.
- Eye Highlighting Brush - $3.90 (~14 lei)
I call it "the huge eyeshadow brush" because of it's size and fluffiness. It's meant for highlighting the brow bone or the high points of your cheeks, but I also use it to apply eyeshadow to my entire lid, when I'm in a hurry and only want one shade on my eyes. I've also used it to set the concealer under my eyes. It shed a little on the first wash, but on the next washes I haven't noticed any shedding.
- Fluffy Blending Brush - $3.00 (~10 lei)
Last but not least is the blending brush, which resembles to my beloved E25 from Sigma or my 776 by Bdellium Tools. It's a dome type blending brush, dense and rounded. Personally, I prefer this type of brushes to the tapered ones like E40 by Sigma. I can apply color, I can blend it, I can define the crease; I have control and precision, all from one brush. The Beau-make brush is just as resistant as the two mentioned above. I didn't notice any shedding during washing, furthermore, it mentained its shape without the help of brush guards.
Ca să fiu sinceră, nu mă aşteptam nicio secundă să compar pensulele astea cu Sigma sau Bdellium Tools, dar mă bucur că m-au surprins atât de plăcut. Niciuna nu au pierdut fire de păr în mod excesiv, sunt foarte accesibile ca preţ, deşi mă nemulţumeşte lipsa unei variante ieftine de transport pentru România.
To be honest, I wasn't expecting for a second to be able to compare these brushes to Sigma or Bdellium Tools, but I'm glad they surprised me in a good way. Neither of them shedded excesively, they are very cost-effective, however I am pretty unsatisfied with the lack of cheap shipping options for Romania. Hopefully that can be fixed.
