I’ve been M.I.A for so long it’s ridiculous but I haven’t stopped shopping or trying new products so I’ll have lots to catch you up on over the next few weeks and I promise to try keep it regular!
Today I wanted to fill you in on a recent purchase, the SoSu By SJ x Keilidh MUA Urban Rebel Brush Set. I am a big SoSu By SJ fan, I think her products are really great quality and I do like to support home grown Irish brands, too! I have the SoSu by SJ Detail Collection of brushes so when I seen she was collaborating with Keilidh, who I love, I decided to get the brush collection to try out, I also really wanted a new brush set!
So in the set you get 7 brushes, yes 7! They’re priced at €29.95 which is pretty reasonable for 7 brushes and they’re all designed to help you create the perfectly blended Instagram worthy eye looks.
I ordered online during the presale so had to wait a whole week to try out these babies but damn they were worth the wait!
Can I also say that the packaging was beautiful and so well presented, I’d never used the site before so well done Suzanne, it is an experience in itself! I also got a discount code for future purchases which I thought was lovely!
I’m definitely a work-in-progress, I love makeup but I’ve never taken any makeup courses so I’m no trained MUA but these brushes really make blending a pleasure. If you’ve tried to blend, you’ll know how time-consuming and tiring it can be but I honestly find it so much easier with these brushes. There’s 3 different brushes just for blending, all various sizes for the different levels of detailing you need and so fluffy they cause no irritation or pain on the lids no matter how much you blend, blend, blend!
I’m just sharing some looks I created using these brushes and they are some of my favourites ever! They were so much fun to create and I played with different palettes for each one; something I’ve challenged myself to do each weekend because I have so much makeup that barely gets a look in which is pretty shameful! I’m definitely having fun rotating my palettes and products each weekend and falling back in love with so many I’d practically forgotten about!
Again, I’m no MUA but I love playing with makeup, especially eyeshadows and even though these brushes were designed for girls who know what they’re doing with makeup I’d actually say these are perfect for beginners who want to improve and get those insta-worthy eyes, there’s also a handy little guide explaining each brush on the back of the box – which is also fab by the way, so much thought was put into making these look super high-quality!
You might be thinking, ‘hell there’s a lot of green smokey eyes here,’ but let me clarify that these were all done over the last 3 weekends for the Irish rugby games during the November series, all using different palettes in my collection so head over to my Instagram: Laurenmarie_fk and I have little breakdowns of the products and shades I used if you want to recreate any!
