HOT OR NOT | BLANK CANVAS COSMETICS BRUSHES & AIRBRUSH BLENDER SPONGE BEAUTY BLENDER DUPE?


Do you know how much I love makeup brushes? Because it's a lot and I own a lot but I keep adding more. Blank Canvas Cosmetics sent me a generous box of makeup brushes, beauty sponges that look just like the beauty blender and even their Master Series Palette and words cannot express how happy it made me to open this box of pure beauty. Read on to hear what I think about them all, and please share your favourite makeup brushes in the comments with me below. My next post will be about the Master Series Palette which I am still playing with so stay tuned for that on Monday. 


I received a handful of these gorgeous teardrop bright pink Airbrush Blender Sponges (£6 each). I found them to be quite comparable to the beauty blender, so much so that I genuinely can't spot the difference between them and my actual beauty blender. They are soft and expand under water, they apply liquid foundation like a dream giving a seamless, flawless base. I also use it to press translucent loose powder into my skin and bake and it does this beautifully too. A great option for anyone who doesn't want to pay the £16 for the original beauty blender. This one is a spot on dupe


I love these Hot Pink Gold Brushes because their bristles are tightly packed. The F31 Targeted Contour Brush (£13) is great for carving out the cheekbones and blending a cream contour. I love using the FO1 Quick Brush (£13.70) for mineral foundation and powder. It really is a quick brush that is perfect for my early morning rush every week day. It makes base makeup fast and easy, which is what I need on a Monday morning. The FO8 Dome Buffing Brush (£12.80) is great for anything, one of the most versatile brushes I own and can be used for foundation, concealer, contour or blush, even packing on powder. The bright pink adds a gorgeous pop of colour to my brushes. 


My favourite of all their brushes are the Rose Gold and Black Brushes. A lot of them have been adopted into my daily routine including the ones you see above. The F34 Large Powder Brush (£12.80) is what I use last to dust loose powder on my face, the F20 Buffer Brush (£12.80) is fantastic for foundation, it makes even hard to blend foundations apply evenly. I haven't used the F33 Extreme Contour Brush (£12.80) as much as the others but its unique, curved shape lends itself well to heavy contouring. Overall, the face brushes work very well but I did find it took several uses to get used to them because of their longer than usual handles and bristles. After multiple uses they do become less stiff and adapt to the natural contours of your face. They come in many sets or can be bought separately at a reasonable price. I love that they are made of synthetic hair and are vegan. 


The eye brushes, on the other hand, weren't my favourite. The longer bristles and slightly stiffer texture meant they were great at detail work and placing product but not as good at blending. I still get a lot of use out of them and they create really gorgeous looks. Like the face brushes after a few uses they become a lot easier to use and the EO1 Round Eye Blending Brush (£6.84) is now one I use every day for my crease. Thank you so much for reading, I hope you enjoyed this post. Have you heard of Blank Canvas Cosmetics? What are your favourite brushes? Let me know below in the comments, I hope you are all having a brilliant weekend and enjoying the sunshine. Take care. 

Have you tried anything from Blank Canvas Cosmetics?
