Hello lovelies, I hope you are all doing well and have got all your Christmas shopping done! If you haven't then take comfort in the fact that I have not even started mine yet... but I have got my make up sorted so at least I will be looking good whilst showing up home empty handed ;)
This post is gonna be a little lengthy but trust me it will be worth it as I will be talking about this new line of make up brushes by L.A.B.2 (pronounced Lab Square). I first heard about L.A.B.2 at the Beauty Bar Event hosted by The Bloggers Hangout back in September. L.A.B.2 is a sister brand of Sensationail which has created the UV gel polish kits that myself and so many other bloggers love, and let me tell you, these brushes lived up to their sister brand's expectations.
The packaging has a pop of colour, each different set of brush packaging have their own colour which I think is a nice touch and it looks really cute too. I was lucky enough to be gifted with their Strokes of Genius Set along with their Sensationail Starter Kit at the event. It's hard to say which brush is my favorite because they all have their own uses and having used all of them in this look, I can safely say that they are really quite amazing!

So as you can see, the Crease and Eyeshadow brushes did an excellent job at blending. The Pointed Eyeliner brush is good but I think I just need a little more practice with it to perfect my winged liner! All in good time! For my brows, I used the Brow and Eyeliner brush, it had good precision and didn't pick up too much product so you could gradually build up the colour as you desired. I then went over my brows with the Brown and Lash Groomer (probably my fave tool if I absolutely had to choose) for a more natural brow finish.
I think that this set would be a great gift for anyone starting out with eye make up because it is fairly good quality and it's priced at a very purse friendly
£18 .99 (£14.99 at Superdrug). This could make the perfect Christmas gift for one of your girls or if you are looking to try out some new affordable brushes then this would be pretty good too. I already have my eye on L.A.B.2 Lash out Loud mascara wands, maybe one of those wands could be the answer to the longer lashes that I am still in search for? We'll see! But for now, I have my h&m individual lashes to keep me going, still haven't mastered the strip lashes but maybe 2016 will be the year!
It's always good to finish a post with a Selfie!
Have you tried any of L.A.B.2 brushes yet? If so, let me know in the comments below. If you haven't then I would still love to hear your thoughts on these brushes too! What do you think of my make up look, is it Christmassy enough? Haha
Until next time,
