Review: Look Good Feel Better Mini Powder Brush


If you’ve been following me for a while you may be aware of my love of makeup brushes, I have more than I need but you can never have too many right? So I was very happy when I got  the Mini Powder Brush from Look Good Feel Better in the Marks and Spencer’s advent calendar in December. As far as I can see this brush isn’t available to buy separately but is part of a mini travel set which costs £20 or you can buy the full sized brush for £13 on its own, I think the only difference is the handle size really. 

Look Good Feel Better is a company that I’ve been looking at getting brushes from for a while though I haven’t needed a replacement since finding them. It is a charity that helps people who suffer from cancer with the visible affects of the disease and treatment and money from the sale of each of their products is donated to the charity. So not only do you get a makeup brush you also help a good cause. The brushes are cruelty free and are designed for sensitive skin so if you have problems with brushes irritating your skin they may be a make to consider. I’m not sure how easy they are to find outside of the UK but I know they’re sold in Marks and Spencer and Boots here as well as a lot of online stores.

Advent 2016: Day 12!


I’m very happy with today’s advent calendar presents, the Marks and Spencer beauty advent calendar has a Look Good Feel Better Mini Powder Brush to add to my growing makeup brush collection. The Yankee Candle tea light today was Snowflake Cookie, a very sweet one but still one I use to sweeten others and the Ciate Mini Mani Month has a very sparkly Fortune Teller glitter top coat. I also think that the box for the Ciate one may be my favourites from the calendar, I just like the mini boxes in this year’s one and going to keep them for wrapping presents.

Review: No7 Makeup Brushes

Processed with Moldiv

For Christmas one of the things my parents got me was a mascara from No7 and with it came a set like they do with free things in it including a makeup brush. I have never tried a No7 makeup brush before so was surprised how soft it was. I ended up buying the makeup organiser in the sale after Christmas because it had the four brushes I wanted and came to less than they would have cost, though to be honest I think I’d happily pay full price for these as a bit of a treat in the future. I was planning on including the original brush in this review but I can’t find it at the moment so I’ll have to review that later. I could almost do separate reviews on each of these but I thought I’d put them all in one place as I have quite a few posts I want to do and don’t want these to get pushed down the list.

The makeup brushes I have are the Powder Brush and Foundation Brush for your face, Eye Colour and Smudger Brushes for the eyes and the Retractable Lip Brush so it covers most of the basic types of brushes. These cost between £8 and £17.50 with the powder brush being the most expensive and the lip and eye pencils being the cheapest. These do cost more than any of my other makeup brushes but I thought I’d treat myself as I was impressed with the first. I have had a bit of a play around with the different products I have to see how they work best. I’ve also done a comparison to similar brushes in my collection, if you just want to see that then scroll to the bottom of the post.
