We have been fans of vlogger Laura (hapagurl8) for some time now, and we really enjoyed her review of her latest brush haul.
In particular we feel a sisterly love with her take on brushes. Says Laura: “I love makeup brushes. They are my favorite things to buy. I love makeup brushes even more than I love makeup. So I do find that I have a hoarding problem. I just want more and more and more.”
Despite that “problem,” Laura’s husband got her a Chakuhodo Noel Collection Neigh Brush Set … which features undyed goat hair and spectacular blue handles. (Don’t we all deserve partners with such good taste!) The set is apparently sold out on Beautylish. 🙁
Among the many brushes she mentions or reviews:
- IT Brushes for Ulta – Airbrush OMG! Foundation Brush #106. $24.(We concur with Laura that this is a terrible name because–OMG!–women aren’t that silly. Even my teenage stepdaughter.)
- Outerbeauty F102 Flat Kabuki Brush. $16.
- Real Techniques Bold Metals 100 Arched Powder Brush. $19.49. (At the time of posting, this was 3.5 out of 5 stars and the price had been cut from $25.99. Which should tell you something …You may also want to read this.)
We’ll let Laura tell you what she thinks of the brushes because we think she has brush-credibility! The video is 13M long, but you can admire her lovely silver eyeshadow job while she schools you … The only thing that raised an eyebrow here was comparing the Real Techniques Bold Metals synthetic brush to an $83 blue squirrel powder brush from Hakuhodo.
