Review | Cath Kidston Make Up Brush Set

Follow my blog with Bloglovin
Hey lovelies,

As you probably all know I am a Cath Kidston obsessive. I was given this make up brush set from my boyfriends family for my 18th birthday last week and I could not think of a present more up my street.
I have actually picked this up before in shops and lusted after it, so you can imagine my delight when I opened this on my birthday.



I think the print is so beautiful. It is called "Spring Bouquet", a baby blue with pastel coloured flowers. The material is oilcloth, which is great as it means it can be wiped down if it gets dirty. It actually folds up to a decent size and would be great for travelling.


I love that the pattern continues inside, and each brush has it's own pouch to keep it safe and neat. There is also a plastic flap that covers the ends of the brushes to keep them protected and clean. I think this is a great idea and really makes the case stand out from others I have, such as the travel case for the Real Techniques Core Collection.


There is an extra space with a zip to store any other essentials like tweezers and scissors. The brushes themselves are a good quality. They are soft and easy to handle. I think they are synthetic brushes, but considering they do feel nice. I like the simple white wooden handles. In total there are seven brushes, covering all possible uses. Overall this a fab brush set for travelling with and if you are a newbie with brushes.


I picked up these glass jars for £1 each from a shop called Tiger. They come with lids but I think they are a cute way of storing make up brushes. My room is being redecorated and I am trying to think of ways to store my make up and beauty products on a budget. 

The Cath Kidston brush set retails at £25 and can be purchased here in different prints.
Do you like the look of the make up brush set?
Have you got any budget ways of storing make up?

    Ah that is really cute! You're so lucky haha. I thoguht they'd cost more - £25 sounds quite reasonable for a nice brush set and brush holder, especially from Cath Kidston.

    You should do a post reviewing each of the brushes :) xx
