Nanshy Brush-Review

You may or may not know that I love a good makeup brush, especially when it comes to eye brushes, I love a smokey eye, bright eye, neutral eye- all of it! So when it comes to blending brushes I can never have too many.
Because of this, when the lovely people at Nanshy were offering, on Twitter, to send a brush to bloggers for review I jumped at the chance!

They sent me the blending brush and can we just take a minute to admire the packaging?

It comes in it's own wee satiny pouch- how fancy!

The brush itself has a sturdy wooden handle with the name imprinted on it. It's quite small, making it perfect to just fling in your makeup bag/handbag so great for travel.

The bristles are really dense but also really soft.

I expected it to be more round or domed than it actually is like my normal blending brushes but this is quite flat and reminds me a bit of the real techniques base shadow brush.



The brush picks up a really decent amount of product and this, coupled with the flatter shape makes it multi functional and a good all round eye brush.

I've used it for both all over shadow and blending in the crease and I do prefer it as an all over shadow brush- I have brushes that work better in the crease. However I will say that it is great at blending and softening the edges of any shadow.

So all in all It's a nice all rounder eye crush, it picks up a lovely amount of product, it blends edges nicely, it's well put together and soft and best of all really affordable. Plus I got another one in my Blog Yorkshire meetup goody bag!!

This brush (the larger full sized version) is part of the new Masterful Collection that is being released very soon- Check it out here!!
