The Perfect Make Up Brushes For Your Inner Goth

jolie brushes

I always love getting new makeup brushes but rarely ever have proper sets. I am still using a few brushes from an old FCUK set which I must have had for coming up a decade, just because the two brushes I’ve kept are such good quality and just perfect.

I’ve had two sets of the Real Techniques brushes which seem to be standard for anyone who wears makeup, and they’re good for what they are but I just seem to have an abundance of face brushes and less small eye brushes.

This is when the Jolie brushes were introduced to me. You may have seen them around before as they were one of the first to bring out the oval makeup brushes (they may have even been the original) and they’ve done plenty of unicorn and mermaid style brushes, and even some rose ones.

As soon as I saw this black and red set of unicorn handle brushes I knew that I needed to own them. Plus they’re called Vampyre which is such a cool name.

The colour combination is so me – although the images make the brushes look pink, but it’s more a red with a slight pink tinge. I am not a bright, colourful person so to have makeup tools which reflects me wins hands down.

The next thing which drew me to the set was the assortment of brushes, for just £28 you get a whopping 10 brushes which seemed like a bargain to me considering so many of the other sets were a similar price for around 7 brushes. Of the brushes included there’s a near equal split between larger face brushes and smaller eye and lip brushes with a large powder brush, an angled contour brush, a stippling brush, a slanted eyeliner brush, a lip brush and a few different sized eye shadow blenders.

Thankfully the set continued to impress with its quality, the brushes are made of synthetic fibres making them vegan and cruelty-free *hooray*  and they’re still super soft which is one area which a lot of brushes I’ve tried fall down on.

Since I started using the brushes I can say that they hold powders really well without them just dropping off the ends, they wash really easily with no shedding and they dry super soft, all things you’re going to want from a good set of brushes.

As the handles are a little thinner than some other brushes they’re really easy to grip and thankfully the smaller eye brushes have even smaller handles meaning you’re not trying to hold onto something chunky.

    I love these, I wear a lot of black so they’re definitely my style, and sounds like they’re great quality as well!

    I love the look of those brushes, especially the fact that they have thinner handles! 🙂

    These look amazing. Would love to try them out but I probably have too many already. I don’t have black ones though so definitely an excuse to get these.

    Yay I am so glad to hear that they are cruelty free and vegan. I love the Goth vibe but I would love their mermaid or rose gold brushes!

    What a bargain ♥. Love the pink pop of colour and the fact the brushes are good quality. Which one do you use the most?

    I really do need some new brushes and when you think of what you get for £28.00 it’s so worth the money thanks for sharing

    Oh anything that has Vampire in the title I’m down for lol. Plus, I also need new brushes but haven’t done it because I don’t wear a lot of make-up so I guess I just don’t see the financial point in buying brushes that I will hardly every use. Though now I’m tempted to buy these simply because of their title:)

    £28 is such good value for brushes. Mine where really expensive and all the bristles fell out. I might try these.

    August 8, 2017 at 3:02 pm

    I am not really a goth but I do love the colour black. These brushes look great with the touch of pink on the tips!!!!

    I profess that I don’t own a single make up brush. However these look so great that I feel like I am missing out. I love the pink at the top
