This month the lovely Funtica sent me this great little travel set of makeup brushes by Micabella* to try out and they couldn’t have arrived at a better time! The box is so compact it could fit in your handbag yet inside it holds nine mini Micabella brushes in every shape you could possibly need – perfect for holiday!
The brushes are so soft, and the foundation brush applies like a dream. I usually apply the majority of my foundation with my fingers and then use a brush to layer up problem areas. This brush is the perfect size for that and it’s replaced my full size Clinique brush already! Although the brushes are all smaller than normal i still think the blusher brush is big enough to do a good job, and the primer brush is great for highlighting and contouring. The rest are all so useful for eyeshadows, lipstick and eyebrows – there is literally a brush in here for everything. I’ll certainly be taking this little box on holiday with me in place of all my full sized brushes, and afterwards it will live in my over night bag so i always have the right kit when i need it!
It’s the packaging that’s the real winner for me with this set, it’s just so neat and holds them all perfectly. You really wouldn’t guess you had nine makeup brushes in the small box they hide in. The set itself is £69.95, which for the quality of the brushes, the amount you get and the convenience i think is a good price. It’s certainly made me want to try out some of Micabella’s full sized brushes as none of them seem to malt or irritate my skin. They’re also really easy to clean – i can’t fault them at all.
You can grab yourself one of these lovely sets for £69.95 on Funtica’s website HERE!
Have you used any of Micabella’s makeup brushes before? What do you think about the idea of travel brushes?
