A little while ago I decided to make a little purchase into the world of oval makeup brushes. Ever since the Artis Oval makeup brushes made their way into the blogging world I wanted to know more.
I’m not sure what it is about them, I mean they remind me of an old-fashioned vanity hairbrush and mirror, but I really wanted to see if they were worth the hype surrounding them.
As I didn’t want to spend too much I picked up a couple from Makeup Revolution to give them a try. I went for the Face Precision Oval Makeup brush and the Eyeliner Precision Oval Makeup brush.
So let’s start with the Face Precision Oval Makeup Brush; I have fallen in love with this brush. The brush consists of a large amount of bristles densely packed together creating a flawless finish on the skin. I use this to apply my foundation every morning and have done since purchasing towards the end of last year.
As to the Eyeliner Precision Oval Makeup Brush, this isn’t one I am so sure on. I get the idea, and I really like the sound of being able to apply my eyeliner in one simply swipe but I am yet to actually be able to achieve this. I find the brush quite fiddly and hard to get close to my eyelashes.
Overall, I definitely understand the hype surrounding the facial oval brushes and have actually since purchased the Shape Precision Oval Brush by Makeup Revolution, which I use for concealer and love just as much. However, I can honestly say that unfortunately I am not so sure how much I will ever use some of the eye brushes in the collection.
Have you ever tried the original Artis Oval Makeup brushes, or a dupe?
