Eek so I was lucky enough to get my hands on the new Makeup Revolution brushes as well as their Brush Shampoo and Cleaner.
If I'm honest I was in a little shock when I saw the sneak peak pictures they were teasing us with on their Instagram as I had this in my mind for a while to request for them to start selling brushes .. great minds think alike eh! I won't lie to you I wasn't sure what to expect quality wise as they are a budget brand and don't get me wrong they have never failed to surprise me with the quality of their products but the whole idea was new to me.
Now being someone who owns 100's of brushes (probably literally as well) I kind of have a mixture of high street to high end brushes so I guess it is safe to say I have a general idea of what I would expect from a new brand. On first impressions of the Makeup Revolution Pro Brushes they come packaged well and the relevant brushes all come with their own protectors too. I was also very happy to see the brush handles were wooden, the bristles and brush ferrules are all pretty secure and feel sturdy which is another main factor for me and each brush comes with the Makeup Revolution logo and brush number engraved in gold on the handles which is another key factor for me personally but I don't think many others mind however I do prefer the name of the brush to be printed on the handle but again like I said this is just a personal preference as I'm terrible with remembering names and numbers. On the plastic packaging of each brush the name, number and also a short description of what the brush is designed for is included which I was pretty impressed with. Finally all the brushes are made with synthetic hairs which means cleaning is super easy .. oh and did I tell you these brushes are mega soft! These range from £1.50 - £3.75 as singles or you have the option to buy them as face or eye sets or even as a full set. A full set ranges at £22.05 if bought individually but if you purchase them all as a set then you save a further £2.05 so thats £20.00 for a full set. These definitely do not feel like they come from a budget brand and believe me when I say these will get a hell of a lot use from me!
Next up I gave the Makeup Revolution Pro Hygiene Antibacterial Brush Cleaner a quick trial on my current foundation brush which has roughly a weeks worth of build up (I wash my brushes weekly before you are grossed out) and have to say I seen about 30% worth of product come away on the tissue when I swirled it around, now obviously after a weeks worth of build up your brush ideally needs a wash rather than spot cleaning but I have to say to see it take away so much of the product I don't have any doubts on how well it'd spot clean my brushes, this has now gone straight into my kit. I also used the Makeup Revolution Antibacterial Brush Shampoo to clean my brushes, the texture is slightly runnier than jelly, I popped some on my palm and washed my foundation brush after the first swirl and wash 97% of the product had washed away and that is impressive as usually with my brush soap it takes me roughly three washes before my foundation brush is thoroughly clean so again very impressive and I forgot to tell you the bonus point with these is that both have a lovely scent to them too! I have to admit brush cleaners and shampoo's aren't something readily available from high street brands, there is high end options available but the price difference is mind blowing, Makeup Revolution have successfully created pocket friendly options.
