Lottie London


I was in Superdrug last week and spotted a brand I hadn’t seen before – to be honest, I’m often late to the party with these sort of things, so it may not be news to many… But it was new to me and I was drawn over by – ditzy alert – how cute the section was. Pretty colours, nice typography… just very lovely.

I’ve been on the look-out for make-up brushes for a while now, but never took the plunge (they always seem pricey for someone who has, for the majority of their makeup-wearing life, applied with their fingers!). Each brush can be bought on it’s own – some for £7.99, others for £4.99 – but this pack of five, the Best of Brushes Collection, was £19.99. A pretty good saving!

Like I said, I’m quite new to the makeup brush thing, so I have nothing to compare them to (asides from an Ecotools eye shadow brush, which is very good) but they certainly do the job.

What are your favourite make up brushes? Do you find a difference in high street brands and higher end brands like Bobbi Brown? I would be really interested to know! x

    Hi Sarah,
    Like you, I had not paid much attention to make-up brushes for a long time, until about ten years ago, when a terrific Benefit Rep in Debenhams at Castle Court did my make-up. He talked about the importance of using the correct brushes, had none to sell on the Benefit counter, so ushered me off to the Mac counter. I bought two Mac eye shadow brushes, of varying degrees of softness. They are still in service. I wash them regularly in Baby Shampoo, rinse them well and leave them to air dry. When you find something so good, you don’t want to change. However, I like the look of the Lottie London brushes, and know one particular teenage Granddaughter who will be very interested to hear about them :)

      Hi Pat, oh I’ve heard great things about the MAC brushes too! That’s amazing they’re still in service after so many years, well worth investing in then! :) I will have to check them out when I’m next in Debenhams. Using baby shampoo is a neat idea too :) xo

      PS. Pat, actually I do not recommend these brushes… well, the foundation one at least – less than a week’s use and the handle and brush head have detached!

    Sarah, that didn’t last long! I shall not be recommending the brushes to Grace. Looking forward to your next blog xo :)
