NANSHY GOBSMACK GLAMOROUS BRUSH SET


It was definitely time for me to upgrade my makeup brush collection. With a few face brushes that have lasted me for 5-6 years and only a few new-ish ones from XIP Professional; my collection was starting to look a little sorry for itself. In the bin went the really old brushes and out came these aesthetically pleasing beauties.

Nanshy is a makeup brush brand that launched a few years ago. All of Nanshy's brushes are cruelty free and vegan, so perfect for anyone who looks out for these kinds of products. I personally wouldn't want to use any kind of animal fur on my face (including mink lashes), so using cruelty free and vegan brushes is a must for me.

I was sent over the 5-piece Gobsmack Glamorous brush set. The set costs £34.95 and it comes in black or in this gorgeous style; Pearlescent White. The 5 brushes are all face brushes which is what I needed to replace, so I was very excited to give them a try!


Firstly, I adore the packaging and the way these brushes are designed. I only had a few white brushes in my collection beforehand, so these now look super pretty in their brush pot. I was pleasantly surprised to find that these brushes are incredibly soft, with anti-bacterial cruelty-free bristles. Being that of a high quality means that these brushes can be used with liquid, mineral and cream makeup products with no mess or problems. 

So, what did I think of these brushes? 

FO1: Flawless Foundation Brush 

I thought I'd start with the brush that is not only my favourite, but the one I highly recommend out of them all. This a flat top brush that distributes and blends your foundation perfectly. I find I need very little amount of time buffing product into the skin; meaning minimal effort when it comes to creating that perfect base. 


A01: Blush & Bronze Brush 

Another brush I have been enjoying using is this one. It's a fluffy brush with a slightly angled cut; perfect for creating the illusion of cheekbones with bronzer or contour powder. 


FA01: Angled Airbrush 

This is the one brush I haven't used as much as the others, but one that works as a great backup for a foundation brush. It's a flat top brush with an angled cut, which would work amazingly well for cream products. However, I only contour with powder products, so I haven't been able to use it for that purpose.


P01 Conceal Perfector Brush

I have been using this brush just before my foundation when colour correcting with some Smashbox cream correctors. I have tried using it for concealer, but find the brush is a little too big for an accurate and blended application. It's definitely one of those brushes that can have a purpose. 


R01: Buffed Base Brush

This brush reminds me a lot of the buffing brush from Real Techniques. These types of brushes were my favourite for foundation applications, but then I discovered stippling brushes and of course; flat top kabuki's. However, when my foundation brushes are in serious need of a wash, I always reach for a buffing brush to use in the meantime. 

This one works really well at buffing foundation into the skin. I have also used it a few times to apply liquid highlighter to the tops of my cheekbones and it works really well for that too. 


For £34.95, I think this is an excellent brush set that every girl needs - although it does come with a  popular demand so is currently sold out, but is available in black. Each of these brushes can also be purchased separately for £9.95 each if there's one or two you would like in particular. 

It's also worth mentioning that I have washed these brushes a handful of times now and they look as good as new.  No dye runs through the water and no brush hairs come away - something that I find often happens with cheaper brush brands. 

There's many I'm an avid fan of Nanshy and can't wait to try some more of their brushes. There's just SO many more to choose from!

  3. They're all very nice looking. I particularly like they are vegan and cruelty-free. I haven't bought a foundation brush yet because I'm so used to using a sponge but I would like to give a foundation brush a go.

  9. These look great but it's also nice to see a brand doing just face brushes as too many times you end up with a few brushes totally unrelated that you'll never use again x
