Current Favourite Eyeshadow Brushes _00

I’ve been trying to collect quite a few eyeshadow brushes, this is one thing I can’t have enough of. I am definitely one of those people who can be lazy when it comes to cleaning my makeup brushes, that’s why having a few brushes can be a great idea so that I can rotate them and always have clean brushes on hand. Today I thought I would share my Current Favourite Eyeshadow Brushes I have been obsessed with.

These are all really affordable, good quality brushes which have become favourite makeup brushes to use. As mentioned these are all budget friendly makeup brushes and all are available in South Africa.

Essence Cosmetics Blending Brush (R33) – I have been really impressed with these Essence Cosmetics blending brushes, they are such great quality, I have experience no shedding whats so ever and they blend my eyeshadow good enough.

Real Techniques Eye Shading Brush & Deluxe Crease Brush (R236. 21 as a set of 5 brushes) – I am a major fan of Real Techniques brushes, a few months ago I bought myself the Real Techniques eye brush set, the review can be read here. The set comes with 5 brushes which can all be used for the eyes. These are amazing quality and super easy to clean.

Cala Blending Brush (R39.35) – If you are from South Africa then you have probably come across the brand Cala which can be found in Dischem stores nationwide. I have been super happy with their eyeshadow brushes I think they are definitely a great addition to any makeup kit and they are affordable! I definitely plan on adding more of these brushes to my collection.

So there you have it guys, these are basically my top favourite eyeshadow brushes that I currently can’t get enough of. What are your favourite makeup brushes?

    My current favourite eye brushes are definitely the Real Techniques blending Crease brush and the Essence blending brush too. Not a fan of the RT Eye Shading brush though, I actually prefer the pink Essence eyeshadow brush. Thanks for sharing your favs with us! x

    I love the Real Techniques brushes, I use them all the time myself. I definitely need to get that essence brush tho, it looks like the perfect fluffy blending brush.

    My main brushes are from different brands -I’ve yet to try Real Techniques!- but they look very similar. You can never have too many good blending brushes! So my favourite from the ones you’ve posted looks like the Cala one. It’s so cool reading about all these different brands but sad as we can’t get them here haha!

    Ooo now I want to check out that Real Techniques eye brush set! I’d say if I had to choose one of my favourite eye brushes is the sigma e25 blending brush 🙂
