Nanshy Luxury Brush Set

I hope you're all having a lovely weekend and enjoying the sunshine while it lasts! I recently decided I wanted to try some different makeup brushes. I absolutely love the Real Techniques brushes (and others) but I decided to see what the Nanshy brushes are like. I had heard that they were good but many people still preferred the RT brushes. I found this 13 piece set on Ebay for £29.95 and thought that was such a good deal, I couldn't resist. I'm also a fan that they're synthetic and cruelty free.

The set includes (in no particular order):
Liner Brush
Small Shadow Brush
Crease Brush
Shadow Brush
Fluffy Shadow Blending Brush
Concealer Brush
Eyelash/Eyebrow Spoolie
Angled Brow Brush
Angled Shadow Brush
Angled Blush Brush
Foundation Brush
Powder Brush
Powder/Foundation Brush

All of these brushes are amazingly soft and the shaped handle means the brushes are so easy to use. So far, I've used all four of the face brushes and a couple of the eyeshadow brushes. My favourite of the face brushes are the angled blush brush and the foundation brush. I've used the angled blush brush to apply both blusher and bronzer. It's the perfect shape for applying blusher and if you squeeze the brush to flatten it slightly then it's the perfect shape for contouring. I love the foundation brush as it gives a really good converge and a flawless finish. I haven't been so keen on the eyeshadow brushes but I've only used them a couple of times. I think they definitely work better with powder products. I've used them with powder but over a cream base and I found it really hard to blend with these. But I'm going to keep at it and use more of them. 

The brushes come in this case and although I'm not a huge fan of the case, it's ideal for transporting your brushes. It folds up to a slimline shape without damaging any of the brushes and is incredibly light. I would definitely recommend a set like this for taking on holiday as you have a good range of brushes and it's so easy to pack. You could even carry this in your handbag if you needed to!

I'm definitely going to keep using these brushes and experimenting with the eyeshadow ones more so keep your eyes peeled for a potential review when I've used them more!
