Japonesque Amazing Brushes ♥

I have some amazing new brushes to share with you from an exciting brand breaking through into the UK!

Japonesque is a leading make-up accessories brand and have been creating beautiful brushes and other exciting products like tweezers and eyelash curlers for over 25 years. 

They have a huge celebrity following from the likes of Demi Moore and Hilary Duff. Japonesque brushes are made with the very finest craftsmanship and come in a variety of styles and hairs from high tech synthetics to luxurious natural fibres.

Japonesque has now hit the shelves at Boots stores and John Lewis Department stores.

I have 4 of the travel brushes and i can't wait to share them with you.

Japonesque have a huge range of brushes from the pro range to travel range and i was sent 4 brushes from the travel range. Don't be put off by the travel range though as they still feature all the same qualities as all the other brushes they just simply have shorter handles.

The angled eyeliner brush and brow/lash comb have now become staple brushes used in my daily routine to create the statement brow i love. The angled brush in the most perfect size and is really dense meaning you can create great shapes easily!

I actually swear by a small smudger brush and use one everyday from M.A.C so i was happy to see this one from Japonesque. If i am totally honest my new Japonesque brush has totally taken my M.A.C brush place..its much more softer and not so dense meaning you can blend so much easier and its not as harsh. I use this brush to run eyeshadow along my lower lash line so you definitely need a soft brush for they eye area and this Japonesque ones works just perfectly.

Now i think i have saved the best till last here...the travel powder brush is truly the most amazing powder brush i have ever used. I absolutely love using this when applying my is such a soft brush and its domed shaped which means it doesn't pick up too much product just enough to give a flawless finish. My usual powder brush does pick up a lot of product and doesn't distribute it evenly like this brush. It is the most perfect size to fit in my make-up bag. I will just say i had a little problem with shedding when i first used this brush however once washed for the first time it is now perfect and doesn't shed at all.

Travel Powder £29.25
Travel Smudger £14.75
Travel Angled Eyeliner £12.75
Travel Brow/Lash Comb £9.75

When it comes to my make-up addiction i can happily say that this doesn't include brushes. I have a few nice ones from M.A.C, Inglot, Sleek, and Elf and don't like to spend too much on brushes as i think you can still get fab brushes out there for a little less of the price, which is why i love Japonesque. It will be so nice to pop into Boots to pick up any new brushes i need for a great price. I don't think they are high street prices i think they are a little more like 'highend' drugstore prices however for the quality of the brushes and them being available on the high street i think they are great..could i say high street anymore?? ;p

Japonesque is now available in most Boots and John Lewis stores and online HERE
