A Bobbi Brown Brush Haul

bobbi brown brush haul

I’m no makeup artist but even I know that if you invest a bit in the right tools it makes makeup application that much easier and quicker – something I’m in great need of most mornings.

Over the years I’ve gradually built up my brush collection but there were some items that I needed to get rid of as they were just not doing the job anymore.  That’s where these Bobbi Brown brushes come in and although mega pricey, I’ve been using these on a regular basis now and I thought I’d give you a quick overview.

From top to bottom first comes the Eye Blender Brush at £25.50 which is probably my favourite of the three.  This is a great eyeshadow blending tool which is so soft it smoothes out any harsh lines with ease and you can also use it to set your under eye concealer.  I only use it to blend my eyeshadow – just a few quick sweeps across the eyelids and I’m good to go.

In the middle is the Sheer Powder Brush at £30, which I use to apply loose powder.  Previously my powder brushes have always been on the large side but this allows for more precision allowing me to apply powder where I need it most.  If you want you can even use this as a contour brush as it has a slightly tapered end.

Lastly is the Blush Brush at £35, which as its name suggests, is my blusher brush.  Now I was a bit wary of this at first, as this dome-shaped brush is on the larger side of what I’m used to but I tend to use the tip  to apply my blusher and the flat side to blend it out.  This is the most dense of the three so I always go in with a light hand.

The cons?  The price obviously and I do find that the Sheer Powder Brush does shed hairs – it’s not a lot but I do have to watch out for this from time to time.

All in all these are good sturdy brushes which even after a good clean keep their shape.  Whilst they do set you back a bit, you can’t go too wrong with Bobbi Brown.

That said, if I was going to recommend only one, it’d be the Eye Blender Brush as it makes an eyeshadow newbie like me look like a pro (well maybe not a pro but close enough)!

What are your favourite makeup brushes?  I’d love to know.

    I find my Bobbi Brown Sheer Powder brush sheds a bit and feels a bit scratchy on the skin 🙁 Pity, because the blush brush and the eye blender brush (also have those) are so damn soft! Not sure if there’s a way to make the brush feel less scratchy?

    • I know what you mean but overall I still enjoy using the brush and still use it to this day xx

  • These brushes look so soft! I need to get a few new brushes I’ve been considering Bobbi Brown,I’ve had my eyes on that sheer powder blush.

    • They are really soft. The sheer powder brush is a good buy…x

  • Been looking to buy some new brushes…these look great better get saving!! 😉

  • I have never really tried Bobbi Brown brush or thought of to be honest. However after reading this I think it is about time I give them a go.

  • I have never tried Bobbi Brown brushes as I always found them too expensive for my budget. I have had my eye on Zoeva brushes for a while now, hope to get some soon!


    • They are expensive, no doubt. Best tot stick to a budget! Zoeva are a good brand too sabiha x

    I just bought the bobbie brown full face coverage brush; and it was so worth the price! It blends thick foundations to perfection. I would even say I like it more than my beauty blender, and hey, that’s saying a lot 🙂

  • Bobbi brown brushes are gorgeous! i have had my blush brush for years they just last and last compared to MAC. I am currently loving my real techniques though, affordable and well thought out shapes


    • It’s good to know they last long given the amount I spent on them! I do like Real techniques for applying my foundation. sabiha x

  • I currently use Real Techniques, I’ve been looking for some more high end brushes to add to my collection.

    • Yeah I wish they didn’t cost as much as they did. I feel like my photos could be so much better (I’m no professional) so thanks for the compliment sabiha xx

  • I love the blush *_* 🙂 Great post 🙂 I really enjoyed to read it 🙂 xo

  • these look so nice, i’d love to get some!

  • This brushes look amazing, though I bet they feel even better 😉 Right now they’re unfortunately way above my budget but some day I shall treat myself to a nice set.

    If you’d like you could check out my new blog http://aaarabesque.blogspot.com – I’d be honored 😉

    • I agree they are expensive, perhaps I’ll look at some good dupes and include that in a post at some point.

  • I like the sound of the eye blender brush – would you prefer it to MAC’s 217? xx

    • Personally I would still use the Mac 217 for your main blending, the Bobbi Brown one adds that hard to describe finishing touch 🙂

  • Great review! Is that Clinique’s ‘Ginger Pop’ blush? I have that and am pretty sure it is-I love it! Its my everyday colour 🙂

    • Ahh thanks for stopping by. Yes that is ginger pop! I love it too, especially the design sabiha xx
