Look Good Feel Better

28 Feb

Hi Folks,

Over the last few weeks I’ve been trying out some lovely make up brushes.

Look Good Feel Better is the only worldwide cancer charity providing practical support for women & teenagers struggling with the side effects of their cancer treatment. For over 20 years their programmes have helped people to face cancer with confidence.

I received the Mini Masterclass Brush Set. This gorgeous little set comprises of:

  • Powder/Blush Brush
  • Eyeshading Brush
  • Foundation/Concealer Brush

They come in a lovely little travel pouch too which is fab for popping in your make up bag!

So… what did I think? Well, they come in a lovely box & with the added bonus of the travel pouch – they feel expensive. The brushes themselves are lovely & soft.

I’m really picky with my make up brushes. I’ve found that some brands can feel very ‘plasticky’ & quite sharp. These brushes are lovely & smooth & soft.

The foundation Brush worked so well with my mousse foundation. I didn’t seem to use as much foundation as I do when I use a sponge or a blending egg. So that’s always a bonus – less make up usage = less expenditure! The brush helped to get into all the awkward areas on your face – like around your nose etc… this has fast become my favourite make up accessory.!

The eyeshading brush held the make up really well, and blended it fantastically.

The powder brush is lovely & fluffy & super big. It’s fab for dabbing on a little powder to create that matte effect. I’m not really into the ‘dewey’ complexion. I do like a matte finish. This brush works well without giving you that ‘caked’ effect. I also used it throughout the day to rid my face of that afternoon ‘sheen’ that I seem to develop.

Overall these brushes are fab! And you’ve the added bonus of helping to fund the fantastic work the company does.

Mother’s Day is just around the corner & these brushes would make a fantastic gift… they’d last a lot longer than chocolates & flowers.

Thanks so much for reading as always!

So Eco

21 Mar

Hi folks

I have another little review for you… all about Beauty & being Eco Friendly. I was sent a Stippling Brush from So Eco. Now, for anyone who isn’t familiar with So Eco… here’s a little background… So Eco is a range of ‘Eco Friendly’ make up brushes, with unique emphasis on components being 100% responsibly & ethically sourced. The problems of excessive packaging has been heavily featured in the media, waste reduction targets & the environmental legacy that products create are factors we must all address. All of their brushes are; Cruelty Free, Vegan & Vegetarian Friendly, Handcut & Trimmed & are Unbelievably Soft.


The brush I was sent is suitable for use with powder & liquid make up. I decided to use it with my blush/bronzer. I’ve never tried the whole contouring thing… I’m just a little scared I’ll end up looking like a clown. So I go with the age old, tried & tested method of just using a little bronzer & a little blush to create some shape to my face & bring out some colour where it’s needed. This brush worked superbly! The angle/cut of the brush is perfect for shading in the hollow of your cheek. The colours of the bristles are brilliant, as you can see perfectly just how much product is on there.


Knowing that the product is so eco friendly too is an added bonus. No plastic packaging being added to landfill. Made from recycled & sustainable materials that are compostable, recyclable & biodegradable. The handle is made from bamboo which is an ecologically sustainable material. The packaging is FSC approved. The window is made from corn starch & is held together using water based adhesives & printed using vegetable inks.

These lovely brushes are very affordable. Amazon currently have a set on Prime for £15!!! If online shopping isn’t your thing… then you can buy instore from: Tesco & Bodycare. Good make up brushes normally set you back quite a lot, but these lovely brushes are very easy on the purse strings which is always a nice little sweetener!

I shall finish off with So Eco’s mantra:

The world is a beautiful place, so lets keep it that way

Thank you as always for reading!

Love & Huggles,
