Ebay sigma dupe brushes


                                                    Check them out here.

I've been wanting a few brushes from sigma for a few months now, but me being the cheapskate I am the cost was always something that put me off. I discovered these little gems on ebay, a 10 piece brush set which look suspiciously similar too sigma brushes, so I thought why not! I ordered them straight away for just a mere £9.95 with free postage, and they only took about 4 days too come, so needless to say these were a absolute bargain!

For just £9.95 you get 5 face brushes and 5 face brushes. Now, as you can probably tell from the photos, I have already used the face brushes as they are dirty (Apologies!) and I have to say, these are no doubt the softest brushes I have ever used, even compared to my real techniques brushes. So far I've had no shedding with any of the brushes which is great, for the price I expected a lot less from these brushes.

All the brushes have a silver handle which make them resemble sigma brushes so much. The face brushes include a flat angled kabuki, a angled kabuki, a flat kabuki, a round kabuki and a tapered kabuki which is my personal favorite! At some point i'll probably do a more in depth post on the face brushes, after I've used them for a few more weeks.

As for the eye brushes, you get a precision flat angled, precision round, precision flat, precision angled and a precision tapered which is perfect for working eye shadow into the crease and blending, although I think this could even possibly be used for concealer.

                                 Do you have any sigma brushes or any sigma dupes?

Zoella blissful mistful body mist

                                         £8, Available here and here.

So i'm sure unless you've been living under a rock recently, you've all heard or even own something from Zoella's wonderful range by now. The whole range costs £5, excluding the makeup bags and the body mist which both cost £8. The range includes a body lotion, candle, two makeup bags, a fizz bar and also a bath/shower cream.

Anyway, ever since the range was announced I've been dying to get my hands on something from it, so as soon as it hit my local superdrug i snapped this up right away. I have been using this for a few days now and I have literally fallen in love with this and can already tell its going to be one of my must haves from now on. I'm a complete sucker for anything that smells sweet or floral, and this definitely does without being too overpowering at the same time, which is always good.

Its not great for lasting all day, but does last a good few hours without needing to be sprayed, which is what I'd expect from a body mist. Honestly you just can't go wrong with this, It smells lovely and the packaging is so pretty and for just £8 its a absolute bargain, I've already got my eyes on the candle and makeup bags!

                                     Have you tried anything from Zoella's new range?
