I'm a sucker for cheap brush sets and I'm always browsing eBay for them, rather than going out and paying £20 for like one brush. I've had good, bad and mixed experiences with everything I've got. I think this one is a more mixed experience.
So this was one of those times when I bid on a product rather than just getting one that says "Buy Now" and, to be honest, I wish I'd have browsed more because there was the exact same brush set going cheaper on a different auction. In the end, I won the auction and ended up paying £6.98 for this set.
The set itself is labeled as "Pro 15pc set" and when it arrived I was pleased, because it is a lovely rose gold set that contains many basic staple brushes that most people need in their collection. The brushes are really soft and so densely packed, which is great for such a cheap product. You get a foundation brush, many eye brushes and some lip brushes. However, I was a bit peeved that there at least 2 of the brushes the same! These two are also those really crappy sponge brushes that you usually get in eye palettes that no one actually uses. I think I'll end up using these for swatches if I don't throw them away.
Overall, I'm a bit miffed that I ended up paying more for this product. I wish I'd browsed a bit more, but that was my own fault. I think the brushes are ok for the price I paid, but they're kind of what you expect for an eBay purchase. I will definitely be using them and I'm pleased that they feel like good quality, I guess I'll have to wait and see how they last!
If you want this set, I've found it for £3.40 here. Now you can see why I'm so pissed at myself, I could've got it for half the price! Ah, the joys of eBay!!
What's your best and worst eBay purchases?
Til' next time! XOXO
