Primark Makeup Brushes Review (From the Archives)


Hello! Happy Friday to all of you! Before I introduce you to todays From the Archives post I thought I would just say that I have a BlogLovin account (BethMayBlogs) for anybody fretting over gfc which you can access by clicking HERE or the buttons on my sidebarToday I thought I would share an old review of some brushes that I still continue to use from Primark no less! Primark are often seen as cheap and trashy but seeing as I have almost owned these brushes for 2 years and they are still going strong that you may be interested in my thoughts and could go and have a hunt in good old Primarni!

Foundation and Concealer Brush (Foundation)

This foundation brush is relatively flat and not at all dense. This brush can be difficult to use and if you are not very successful when applying foundation with other foundation brushes like this, this will not be any easier.
Foundation is very hard to apply and blend with this and you will need to use another brush, or your fingers, to finish your application.

Foundation and Concealer Brush (Concealer)
Although I dislike the other end of this brush, I love the concealer end.
I was actually happy when the glue came away from the concealer end so that I was able to carry the concealer end by itself. Because of its compact size, the bristles are relatively dense, meaning concealer is applied directly to my under eye area and is blended effortlessly.

Blending Brush
This brush is designed mainly for blending of face products but would also work well for liquid eye products.
Each end is of a size that it is convenient to target specific areas of the face and the small angled brush is perfect for under the eyes.The 'larger' brush is less dense than the smaller end meaning it is harder to use than the angled brush but is still great for applying foundation to more difficult areas of your face.

(l-r) Kabuki, Blusher Brush


This Kabuki is the first Kabuki that I have owned and will be the only one for a long time. I do not understand why you need to pay any more for a brush that works just as well.I love this for applying face powder or applying a light hint of bronze and also for blending.

Blusher Brush
If I were to recommend this brush it wouldn't be for blush, but for powder. I don't feel that the brush is dense enough for me and that there can be too much fallout. I much prefer this brush for a light powder coverage as the brush allows you evenly distribute the product.


I hope you enjoyed my post from the archives. I am being completely honest when I say that I don't think a day has gone by where I haven't used my Kabuki brush. It may not look exactly the same as it did 2 years ago ( and I had owned it for a year previously!) but I don't think that I have ever seen it shed, it washes easily and is still soft. If you happen to see it in Primark ( it was £1.50 when I bought it) then I urge you to give it a try!

Have you tried these brushes?

  3. I like that the foundation and concealer brushes are two-in-one. Nice idea, right?
