It’s highly likely that every single one of you lovely people reading this has either lost a loved one to cancer or know somebody who has been diagnosed with this horrendous illness. I have lost several family members to cancer and used to nurse people with this illness. Cancer effects every aspect of that person’s life including physical appearance and that’s where Look Good Feel Better (LGFB) come in!
LGFB are currently the only international cancer support charity. They provide practical and effective free services for women & teenagers struggling with the visible side effects of cancer treatment. LGFB are dedicated to improving the well being and self confidence of people undergoing treatment for cancer of any type. So far they have helped over 130,000 patients to date.
So when I saw this gorgeous set of anti bacterial makeup brushes on the M&S website I added to basket straight away! Knowing that my beauty treat is also helping others is a lovely feeling.
My first impressions of this set were very positive! Here’s some of the things I like about this set:
- I love that you get a handy pouch to store your brushes in. This means my brushes are less likely to pick up dirt & will stay cleaner for longer
- The beautiful burgundy shade of the handles is so pretty and very distinctive
- The brush heads are so soft. These are probably the softest brushes I’ve ever used (and I’ve tried a fair few brushes!)
- They’re anti bacterial! This is a great feature for somebody like me who might be (just a little bit) OCD about bacteria & dirt
I was extremely excited to use these brushes after initially being so impressed. First up I tried the eyeshadow brush & found it much easier to use than my current brush. As the bristles are so soft it didn’t feel scratchy like some can. It was brilliant for creating a smoky eye too. A brilliant blender.
The lip brush was particularly useful when applying matte liquid lipsticks as I find these harder to apply & you have to be more precise with them than regular lipstick or lipgloss. All of the brushes in this set are easy to hold & feel sturdy.
The gorgeous big fluffy brush is perfect for applying powder foundation, face powder or bronzer. This is the softest brush in the collection & feels so satisfying on the skin.
The size and shape of the foundation brush in this collection is slightly different to others. Instead of being flat this one has a round tip & has a smaller brush. However, I still found that this brush did what I expected it to do. It was great for blending too.
After being very impressed with this set myself I wasn’t surprised to learn that it had won two awards in 2015. These brushes are definitely professional quality plus they are fab on sensitive skin (like mine) and they’re cruelty free too! What’s not to love?
Thank you very much for reading! Let me know in the comments if you have any questions or have tried this brand before.
