These Nanshy Brushes* are amazing quality, they feel substantial and very well made. I was so excited to start using them. These brushes are very dense and they do not shed their bristles. The handles are wooden but lightweight and are painted a very pretty pearl colour. I like that they’re quite short but chunky, this makes them easy to hold and they look really luxurious.
I used the Flat Top Buffer Brush to apply my foundation, it picked up quite alot of product but I found it easy to blend and it buffed it really well into my skin and gave me a flawless finish. Be careful not to apply too much product to your brush as you can get away with using a small amount and really buffing it in.
The Round Buffing Brush I used to apply my setting powder over the centre of my face, this is where I tend to get oily. This brush was a good size for applying the powder to specific areas as it is quite small but the bristles are dense and so soft.
The Pointed Brush I used this for my bronzer, because it had a point this was great for being precise and applying my bronzer under my cheek bones and around my temples. I don’t own a brush like this and wonder how I have survived without it. It makes applying my bronzer so much easier. I have also used this to blend my concealer around my nose and under my eye and think it works really well for either function. This may be my stand out brush from the set, I just love it.
Flat Angled Buffing Brush, I found this worked really well for cream blushes, I used it to stipple the cream blush on to my cheeks and the angled effect made it easy to apply and to follow my cheek bones. This brush is a little more stiff than the Angled Buffing Brush. I used the softer Angled Buffing Brush to apply blush and my highlighters. What I like about this brush set is that you can figure out how these brushes work best for you and they have no set use. They are very versatile and amazing quality. I can’t explain to you how soft they are. I am so very impressed with these and think they would highly recommend them.
This 5 piece Nanshy Brush Set is synthetic, vegan, cruelty free and amazing quality. They are versatile and very easy to keep clean. Well worth investing in as I think these will last a very long time. Oh and have I mentioned how incredibly soft they are?!
