& More New Brush Sets

So Monday I did a blog post about my new So Eco Face Brush Set and today I have two more brush sets that I bought before the So Eco set but haven't for some reason or another got round to doing the post! 

So the two sets I had were the Real Techniques Sam's Picks Collection  and a set of three brushes from a brand called Beauty Muse Pro which are very much in my opinion Real Techniques dupes. 

I apologise for the terrible quality of this picture.

The Real Techniques Sam's Picks Collection I got a few weeks ago when had their big sale on and then an extra 10% off so this set which usually retails for around £29.99 ended up costing me around £17-£18 which I thought was a brilliant deal. In the set you get 6 brushes which include the essential crease brush exclusive and the multi-task brush which is mainly the reason I wanted this set.

L - R: Multi Task Brush. Setting Brush. Buffing Brush. Pointed Foundation Brush. Essential Crease Brush. Fine Liner Brush.
This set I feel at full price is brilliant value considering the prices of most Real Techniques single brushes are around £10 alone. You can still get this on but it currently is back to the price of £29.99 however the set is available at for £26.99 is anyone interested in this set and I would highly recommend. 

Now the next set I purchased was on one of my many trips to TK MAXX and this was the Beauty Muse Pro set of three brushes for the brilliant price of £5.99. 

L - R: Buffing Brush. Foundation Brush. Detail Brush.

These brushes are very much a dupe of Real techniques brushes it has to be said however for the price I thought I'd pick them up and see what they're like. As of yet I haven't actually used them but once I have I will certainly let you know how I feel about them! I know that I'll be using the foundation brush as a blush brush instead of a foundation brush - just feel more suited for blush!

Definitely feeling like I have a bit of an addiction to make up brushes!

October Is Here

For me the best month of the year by far is OCTOBER and it's finally here!!! I literally wait all year for this month as not only is it the month of my birthday - yay - but it's the month whereby we first start to experience Autumn and the build up to Christmas properly starts. Just generally I love October!

Images of fallen leaves and the sun trying to make a sneaky appearance make October and Autumn all the more brilliant. Plus the colder weather allows for extra layering and the return of my coats and boots! Autumn is brilliant for getting them out!

Nothing better than October! Anyone else a fan of the month and the return of Autumn?
