My Makeup Brush Bargain - Japonesque Salon Collection Review.

Have I ever mentioned on here that I'm a HUGE Tk Maxx fan?

I know a lot of people either love it or hate it. I personally love it. 
I'm forever finding bargains in there, beauty products, clothes and home decor. 
I shop for Birthdays, Christmas and events in there and it never disappoints. 

Well last weekend I was having a nosey around my local Tk Maxx and I came across this brush set by Japonesque. 

 There first thing to draw me in was the design of the brushes. White and silver with a cute ditsy flower print!

The second thing that drew me in was the name. Japonesque are a brand of Makeup Brushes that I have always wanted to try, but never splashed the cash on. 

The third thing to draw me in was the price....£12.99! I couldn't believe it, £12.99 for five Japonesque Salon Collection Brushes. That did it for me. Winner.

Granted these brushes are from a past season collection. This doesn't matter to me. The quality of the brushes is just the same and I personally love the design. 

You get five brushes in the set -
  1. A Powder brush.
  2. An Eye Shadow Brush.
  3. A Lip Brush.
  4. A Smudger Brush.
  5. A Lash and Brow Comb.

 I've been after a couple of new eye brushes anyway so this worked out well. 

They come in a lovely lilac, leather tub which I'm sure will look great on my dressing table.

These brushes feel amazing. They are SO soft! 
I've been using the brushes for a week now and so far I'm very impressed. They don't shed (so far) and they apply like a dream for eye shadow. 
I haven't used the lip brush as of yet but the Powder brush applies just as good as the eye brushes too. I tend to use this mostly for blush.

The only real negative I can say is that they are white so they show a lot of dirt. Not too much of a bad thing as I clean all my brushes once a week anyway!

Whilst I was in Tk Maxx I also noticed they had some Japonesque Travel Brush Sets for only £5.99 so I would definitely recommend getting to your local store once in a while and seeing what they have to offer!
