Ebay Jessy Makeup Brushes





I've heard a few beauty gurus talk about these on youtube and I was intrigued by these cheap brushes from Ebay that were being raved about. I was quite skeptical about buying makeup brushes on Ebay for such a cheap price as I thought that they would be horrible quality or fall apart when I started to use them but I ignored the little voice in my head that told me not to buy them and did anyway. Let me first just say that as they were being shipped from China they took around three weeks to be delivered which is slightly annoying but they got here in the end.

I decided to buy the 8pcs set instead of the 12pcs set as I already have an abundance of brushes and really don't have much need for many more! The set comes with four big face brushes and four eye/concealer brushes. The four smaller brushes are really great and are actually so useful for contouring and highlighting as they get in all the nooks and crannies. 
One of the face brushes does the exact same job as the Real Techniques Face Brush and is basically a dupe but at a much lower price. The brushes are so soft they feel like velvet on the skin and feel really light especially when applying foundation.

One thing I will say is when I took them out of the packaging they did smell slightly like paint stripper which is quite worrying but the smell fades after a while!  

Although they probably won't last as long as some of my other higher end brushes £11.58 is a bargain price for eight brushes. I think its a great set for someone who is starting out with makeup and needs some affordable brushes that do the job and are lovely and soft on the skin!
