My Goals Til The End Of The Year

WOO, I'm back, it feels weird having a bit of a break. But in all honesty it was very overdue, I'm the kind of person that finds themselves running on empty quite a bit. It's something I don't want to be like obviously, but I'm very much an 'oh well I'll find time for a break later on' rather than at the moment when I need it. It's not exactly been a relaxing sit around do nothing, it's been more of a right I have a new job so my attention needs to be on that, I'm in the world of 9-5 so it's taken me some time to find my feet and get settled into the new routine. 

But I feel like I've got there now, I actually do 7 hours a day so my trick to combat that is to do add an extra hour onto my day to go to a cute cafe and get some blog posts done. And with that, I wanted to set myself some goals so that this break and time to think was for more than my return post. My blog has been very up and down over the years, it's had an up and dow…

The £4 Wonder Brush

Brushes aren't a product that I tend to review on here. I normally tend to just stick to certain brushes, re-purchasing them when needed. But recently I started to look around more, I wanted a stippling brush as the Real Techniques one for me is just too small. The bristles don't really have any movement so it can take an age sometimes to do my makeup. If I have a free day I don't mind using it but if I have college or work where I only have a limited time It just isn't practical for me. 

Any stippling brushes that I have used always leave a good finish, that was the one thing I was looking for as my buffing brush has become worse for wear. So after spending a bit of time online searching various websites I found one in the one shop I would never have looked. Wilko's, now for those of you who aren't from the UK this is a shop that sells anything really. From homeware to household goods, it is similar to Target especially as everything is from bigger brands its just reduced. But they do still sell their own products. 

They just recently brought out a makeup accessories and skincare range and after looking online for a bit I came across their makeup brushes. They have quite a similar design to Real Technique brushes, something I wasn't too surprised of. They only have makeup brushes at the moment, they haven't released any makeup products. 

I decided as a 'just in case they aren't that great' to only get one brush just to test. I picked up the Short Stippling Brush priced at £4. Sadly for some reason it isn't on their website but the regular stippling brush is. 

I have been using this for over a month now and the one thing I am most impressed with is the finish, I have noticed a massive difference in how my foundation now looks when using this and a buffing brush. It makes my face look much smoother and gives off that natural look. 

Another thing that I was actually surprised at is how well it holds, I have cleaned this around 6 times and not a single bristle has fell out. Even if I wash the brush quite rough it still seems to stay in tact. 

When you buy the brush it comes in a 'travel case' it is a clear wallet that you can leave your brush in an either carry it in your makeup bag to stop it from getting dirty or you can store other brushes in it as well. The brush is fairly big so you would only be able to fit in a few eyeshadow brushes with it in the case. 

For £4 I am beyond impressed, it gives a great finish. Lasts long and overall is a seriously good brush. Despite my thoughts at first I definitely want to go and pick up a few more of their brushes. If you have tried this brush or any others that you think I should try then comment down below and it could be in one of my reviews.
