Happy Friday! As you know from one of my previous posts, I did a small haul in the U.S. And some of the things I bought were by Wet n Wild — we don’t have that many of their products here. I was surprised when I went to Walgreens and saw that they made brushes!
So the first brush I had seen was the Eyeshadow Brush — it jumped out at me because it was at the front of the store, close to the Fergie Collection by Wet n Wild. When I checked the price it was only 1USD, so of course I bought it! Because I really think you can’t have too many brushes for allover colour.
The second brush that I had seen was the Angled Eyeshadow Brush — again $1. I went ahead and purchased this one because I actually didn’t have an angled eye shadow brush. So I figured for that price, “why not?”
They aren’t necessarily the softest brushes I’ve tried, but they’re soft enough. For $1 they get the job done, and I like how long the handles are — I really dislike using miniature sized brushes, or brushes with small handles. It’s really nice how they’re color coded — similar to Real Techniques and their handles.
The brush with blue bristles is good for a light wash of color all over the eye, to pack a little bit of colour on the lid, highlight the browbone, and when turned vertically it can be used to apply and blend crease colour. While the brush with pink bristles is also good for applying crease colour, some blending would still have to be done with the other brush.
These brushes are definitely tools that I would recommend for beginners — they’re affordable, and pretty infallible. At $1 a pop, I would say go ahead and grab them when you go to Walgreens! If you like them, you have new brushes to add to your collection. If you don’t like them, you only have to write off $2.

Did you remember to read this week’s posts on why you should only spend $3 on eye pigments, and the bright eye shadow that you should go ahead and try?
