♥ MUA Makeup Academy Brushes Review

 MUA Makeup Academy Makeup Brushes First Thoughts

When I was in Sweden I saw on MUA facebook page that their new makeup brushes were back in stock, and I decided to place an order. For someone like me who likes to experiment with makeup as a hobby and needs more proper makeup brushes- but doesn't wan't to spend MAC prices on them, these are perfect!

I am so pleasantly surprised with the quality and look of these Makeup Academy brushes. I'd say that they look fairly professional and contrary to the Real Techniques brushes- they've got some really good eye brushes (I do use & love the RT eye brushes, but they are pretty basic).

All the brushes are synthetic and cruelty free. The came on those plastic packages you can see below, they come with a "flap" so that you can close them, making this great storage or travel storage.

My order of five eye brushes and one face brush came out to only £10.5 and I think the shipping was an extra pound or so.

So what do I think of these?

F6 Blusher and Contouring Brush: Great for quick application of bronzer to emphasise cheek bones.
E1 Eyeshadow Brush: Great for pushing on eyeshadow to the lid.
E3 Blending and shadow brush: Best blending brush I've tried so far. Gives a really nice blended line.
E2 Eyeshadow Contour Brush: Perfect for applying shadow to the outer V or crease.
E7 Eyebrow Brush: So impressed with this, I've used it with any black shadow to define my brows.
