Gordons Chemists, Blogger in Residence, Week Three

I have to say, throughout my month of covering Gordons Chemists, Blogger in Residence, I seem to have started up quite a collection of make up brushes. Personally, I think that you can never have enough cosmetic tools. Each brand is different and depending on the look that you are creating, you need multiple brushes. I often find that two brushes which are designed for the same purpose, may not work identically to each other hence the need to several tools. (Below illustration: Sarah Spratt, The Lust List).


One of my favourite brand is the amazing, Real Techniques. You may remember that in my second post as Gordons guest blogger (you can read it here), so you all know how much I adore their brushes. Over the past year, I built up a great collection of Real Technique brushes, I already have their face kit and new kabuki brush. My latest purchase courtesy of Gordons Chemists is this fabulous eye brush set. I am beyond excited to start using these brushes, they’re such great quality tools and the travel case is brilliant for carrying around.




The set comes with five different brushes designed to boost your look with effortlessly enhanced eyes.

Base Shadow Brush:

Applies a smooth, flawless foundation of colour. The holy grail of make up brushes. (Left of the picture.)

Deluxe Crease Brush:

A soft and oversized brush designed for effortless contouring around the crease area of your eyelid. (Right of the picture.)


Accent Brush:

Short headed brush designed for precision detailing, spotlighting, highlighting and smudging your shadow. (Left of the picture.)

Fine Liner Brush:

The ultimate tool for precision application of liquid or cream eyeliner. I’m obsessed with this little beauty! (Right of the picture.)


Brow Brush:

The distinctive shape of this specific brush helps to create and emphasis the shape of your eyebrow. It’s thin enough to create the ultimate brow. Everyone knows what a brow brush looks like! 😉

Call me silly, but I’m a sucker for detailing. I love how the brand distinguishes a difference between their face and eyeshadow brushes. They’ve also got a separate colour for their fabulous kabuki brush. It’s great for when you’re in a rush as you know what colour to look for.


So far, I’ve really enjoyed being part of Gordons Chemists project. They have been so good to me and helped me throughout my shopping sprees! 🙂


Happy Friday, I don’t know about you all, but I’m so excited for the long weekend. Enjoy rascals! 😉
