My Brush Collection

brush collection-thFollowing on from my Best of Beauty: Makeup Must-Haves post from last week, where I mentioned brushes. I thought it would be wise to share with you my whole brush collection, as I really do believe that they make all the difference. Continue on down for some brushy goodness!

Behold! I only have a few brushes, primarily by Blank Canvas Cosmetics, but also by Real Techniques, Royal and Langnickel, Sigma and Ecotools, among others!

Just a few brushes then

Now, obviously this picture isn’t enough to do justice to the collection, so lets go into a little more detail, and we’ll start with the 4 odd brushes in the middle.

Top - Bottom: No. 7 lip brush, Royal & Langnickel Taklon Shadow brush. Urban Decay Shadow Brush (Naked 2 Palette), Sigma Eyeliner Brush

Top – Bottom: No. 7 lip brush, Royal & Langnickel Taklon Shadow brush. Urban Decay Shadow Brush (Naked 2 Palette), Sigma Eyeliner Brush

These are my odd brushes that aren’t really part of any section of my collection, but are still very important. The Sigma brush is one of my favourite eyeliner brushes, because it is small and easy to use, with a fine tip, while the Urban Decay brush can go into its palette for if I’m travelling super light. The Royal and Langnickel is also one of the softest, nicest brushes I own.

brush RT

L-R: Multi Task Brush, Setting Brush, Buffing Brush, Pointed Foundation Brush, Essential Crease Brush, Fine Liner Brush

This is the Sam’s Picks set from Real Techniques, which I was really fortunate to win from the Delightful Make Up Monster. They are excellent brushes, but not quite as nice as my Blank Canvas ones. That said, if I could only fit a couple of brushes into my bag, I could grab these, knowing they would do the job.

brush Ecotools

L-R: Shadow Brush, Liner Brush, Shadow Brush, Powder Brush, Brow & Lash Brush, Concealer Brush

These were my first brushes, and are great for those starting out, as they do the job for a great price. No particular set will cost you much money, which is always welcome. They’re also eco friendly with wooden handles.

And now for the main part of my collection, my Blank Canvas Set, starting with face brushes.

brush bc face

Top-Bottom: F02, F03, F10, F16, F20(x2), F21, F23

These brushes have been a revelation to me. I love them to bits! (almost literally) They provide such a great finish, and are so so soft. And yes, I know I have 2 F20’s, but one’s PINK and if a brush is that good you should always have a spare!

brush bc lips eyes

Top-Bottom: E23, E24, E25, E28, L29, E30, E32

Having the right brush for the right moment is very important, which is why all except for the liner brush are in use here (I use my Sigma liner instead). Once again these give the most amazing finish!

And finally, you need somewhere safe to keep them, which is why I use this:

Blank Canvas Brush Pouch

My Blank Canvas Brush pouch houses all my current collection of brushes, with a bit of creative packing, and as they’re al together it’s easy to grab when I need it!

What to you think of my collection? What brushes do you swear by? Tell all in the comments!



Note: Brushes are a collection of bought, won and supplied for review

  • I actually can’t below how exactly the same the Blank Canvas brushes are to sigma brushes. I mean they are the a carbon copy. I can’t wait for the Irish beauty show so I can get more BC Brushes and Royal and Langnickel. Great post

    I’ll be round later for all these, thanks! I would really love some new brushes, I’m such a novice when it comes to them! I’ll be going back to this post when I next decide to visit Amazon and the likes to pick some up x

    Wow, you have so many brushes! Or many it’s just because I have so little?! I recently got a set of brushes off eBay, recommended by Karen from Lovely Girlie Bits and I really like them. Prior to that, the brushes I had were No 7 ones my Mum got as a free gift set! And other No 7 and Ruby and Millie brushes I got for free using Boots vouchers (if you ever have a voucher and don’t want to waste it, getting brushes is a good idea as you’ll either get them for free or for a few euro. Just check they’re not excluded from terms and conditions)

    • The only ones I’ve bought were the Ecotools ones. The rest were either given to me, came with something or I won (most of them), Though I agree that the No. 7 vouchers are a great way to stock up at a great price.

Go on, talk to me. I don't bite!
