I have a rather large collection of make up brushes, ergo, I don’t buy brushes randomly any more unless I think something looks interesting for fulfils a need (for example I recently purchased a square shaped lip brush because I was missing one in my collection!). Having said that it’s always fun to find a new make up brush range to play with,
Lottie London is a very cute looking brush range exclusive to Superdrug. I have spotted it many times on the stand but didn’t stop to look because going back to the top point, I didn’t have a specific reason to buy a new brush. But I definitely acknowledged the cuteness.
These brushes were a spontaneous arrival! I like how they are individually packaged and I love the coloured handle and tip (which doesn’t seem to run thankfully).
The brushes are synthetic. I used to be all about that natural brushes but then Real Techniques changed my mind about that.
1. Studio Star Stippling Brush (£7.99)
The stippling brush is something I don’t really use any more but I remember when everyone went crazy for them! I just find they don’t give me an even finish for foundations, even though this is what it is for.
So instead of using it for foundation I used this for setting powder – and it’s nice. The bristles are quite long and it has quite a loose feel at the very tips. There was no shedding and it gives a really light natural finish. I don’t like overly powdered looks so this gives the lightest touch.
2. Buff and Blend Brush (£7.99)
I decided to use this for foundation application although this also makes a good powder brush if you prefer a heavier application. I personally like being able to really work in liquid foundation so this dense flat top brush is ideal for me.
I found that some hairs were shed with the first few uses which I had to pick off my face! But after that, the product has settled and I haven’t had any more shedding. Shedding brushes are seriously annoying!
I have no complaints other than the initial hair loss – this brush is lovely and soft and is comparable to the Real Techniques buff brush which I use daily.
3. Contour Queen Brush (£7.99)
The most unusual and interesting brush is this long flat brush shaped like a lower case I (with no dot!). It’s perfect for adding some dark contour under the cheekbones (WITH A LIGHT HAND OTHERWISE IT IS STRIPE CITY!). I also se the other side with a cream highlighter under the eyes and it works well.
The brush is soft and it’s quite dense too so picks up a good amount of product. I have been using this brush every day I am really enjoying it and I don’t have anything else my collection in this shape.
4. Perfectly Precise Eye Brush (£4.99)
This brush is probably the most dupable make up brush – this soft fluffy brush is good for application of a base colour or to blend too. I have no issues using this brush and it’s the sort I would reach for most days to apply a base colour. No shedding with this and it’s nice and soft.
The Lottie London range is quite huge, and decently priced. I am going to check out the counter next time I see it because these four brushes have made me realise the range if interesting enough to be checked out! They have an impressive nail collection too.
