Review Time Again!

Hi everyone, I thought I'd do another quick review for you today.
I was watching an old YouTube video by Punkchyaz a few weeks ago, where she talks about her favorite makeup brushes and how she keeps them from getting damaged, by using Brush Guards!  She gives a link to the ebay shop she bought them from, so I finally decided to take a look.  The ones she bought are a pack of 6 in a variety of sizes but as I have quite a lot of brushes and many of them are larger ones, I decided to go for a slightly different version.  So I bought this
This is a Brush Guard roll, available from ebay and it was only £1.50!  You get a 1 meter and so it can be cut to any desired length for your brushes.  The postage was only £1 and it arrived within about 3 days.

I generally cut mine about 2.5 inches (7cm), but it really depends on the size of your brush.  One of the things I really like about this is that it's so expandable, so if you have really large or wide brushes it will just stretch to fit.  I found it wasn't any good at all for my smaller brushes but since then I've done a little more looking around and found several other great packs that are available.  There is the multi size pack that includes 10 small, 10 medium and 10 large from this seller on ebay.  They are £1.99 and £3 postage.  I think this is a great set to start with as it includes so many in several sizes!

Also you can get various size packs from ebay by The Brush Guard for £6.50 and free postage.

All in all, I think they're really great, so easy to use and once they're on the brush they don't slip or move, they keep the brush clean, fluff and damage free, what could be better!  I'm very impressed with these and I'll definitely be investing in some more for my smaller brushes :-)

I will leave you today with some more pics of the brush guards in use on some of my favorite brushes.
You can also see another great review I just found (uploaded 2 years ago but oh well still valid lol!) by the lovely Goss on YouTube!

  1. I don't use brushes. Fingers and sponges!
    And as you know, I'm allergic to eyeshadow. But I would like those brushes from boots.. but not sure if I would use them enough to justify the purchase. I generally put the brushes I do have in there plastic guards that come with them. It's not a net like those, but a sort of tough flexible plastic.

    1. Well thank you so much for your comments Ms 'Anonymous' (yes I know who you are) lol. I think using your fingers or sponges are just as good as brushes, everyone uses makeup and the tools a little differently to whatever suits them and that's fine, whatever works for you! :-)
