5€ MAKEUP BRUSH SET FROM EBAY - YAY OR NAY?


So last month, I bought this pretty makeup brush set from eBay.
Yay or nay? Let's find out. 


5€ MAKEUP BRUSH SET FROM EBAY

Last month, I became to a realization that I really do need to invest in some makeup brushes. I mean, I used to have only three brushes and as for being someone who uses makeup quite frequently, [read: every day], it's awful. I mean - THREE MAKEUP BRUSHES. That's awful. So before I jumped on a money spending wagon, I decided to find out what eBay had to offer. 
I found this set after searching for a little while (you can find it here) and it was only 5€ which sounded like a reasonable price to pay, as for an eBay makeup brush set. 

As a little disclaimer here, I am going to invest in some better ones when I've got enough money for that & if you can, would you like to recommend for me which ones to go - Spectrum brushes or Zoeva brushes? I did a poll about this over at my twitter a while ago and oh boy, that was a tight race. 

THE FIRST IMPRESSION

The shipping was surprisingly quickly, they arrived in two weeks after the payment so a huge props from that! Usually, it takes quite a while for these to arrive. Sometimes it will even take 30 days or so and yes, I'm assuming these are coming from China. 
They were packed pretty nicely so the post wouldn't mess them up in the delivery so as they included free shipping, that's a good thing. Sometimes things that are delivered with free shipping option are packed in the most imaginable ways. 

There were a few metallic color choices to go for and I went for silver. I love everything silver, so I was happy to find out that that was an option. The package included 7 different brushes & they feel so soft and lovely. Although, there can be seen that they're a bit cheaply produced as some of the hair seems to be falling off. I usually test the brushes for hair falling, these passed my test when they arrived, because I think it's quite normal for brushes to lose a bit of their hair. Nothing alarming, just a couple hairs there and there. 


YAY OR NAY? 

So far, I've been enjoying using these. They're not like RT brushes or that high quality but they do their thing. I've got some experience with different brush sets and when being compared to the price, these are good. Not the best, but as I said, they do their thing and that works with me as long as I've saved some money for a proper brush set. 

Have you ever ordered anything like this from eBay?

Ps. I wouldn't mind if there would be even a little bit of daylight during this season.

  8. I do my makeup literally everyday and I only have about 4 or 5 brushes to:/ the only things I've usually bought off ebay are car and quad parts so this is interesting to hear! I go to amazon for everything else but I might try these out, thanks:)

  9. I got the RT bold metals set over Christmas... which include the EXACT same [style and amount of] brushes as these but for £20 [special set including the brush bag] and I'm really impressed at how spot on similar they look to the real thing. I might just buy these to do a comparisson post between real and fake, but I honestly wouldn't have noticed the difference in the look of these brushes had you not said they were from ebay! P.s I didn't see your poll, but I would've voted Spectrum x
