Celia Birtwell Make-up Brushes

I bought this cosmetics case from Boots a couple of weeks ago in the sales. The original price was £12 but as everything was Half price was £6!
The designer of the case is called Celia Birtwell, I have never heard of her before but have seen a selection of her products in Boots in the past.
I have a small Mac make-up bag which I keep lip/eye pencils, lip glosses, mascara's etc in but need a bigger one for larger items! I was carrying them in the side pocket of my bag & they were rattling around so I decided they needed a home!
Anyway, I discovered that it came with 4 make-up brushes..
  • a face brush (blush/powder)
  • a smaller face brush (similar to macs 189)
  • an eye shadow brush
  • & a lip brush

When I discovered Mac about a year ago, I threw out all my old make-up brushes and started collecting Mac ones. I could resist the price however I could not resist the quality & how soft they were!. I bought about 8 to start with (the basics) then have been building on my collection since.
I was a little sceptical to start with about how good these Celia Birtwell brushes would be considering that at full price the whole case only cost £12, so I didnt expect anything great.
However, I was pleasantly surprised! The bristles are quite compact, firm but soft & have not yet started to shed. They are really soft & the lighter part of the handle has a nice texture (good grip)
The lip brush has come in quite handy as I have misplaced my 316! =/ - The brush that is similar to the 189 I havent used much as I have a 189 & a 190 & lve them both, so this one isnt really needed! The eye shadow brush is great, really soft & Ive used the larger face brush almost every day for my MSF!
So over all, I am quite pleased with these! I am not pushing my Mac ones to the side though! These are what I carry around in my bag with me, for when I need to touch up at work or at college etc that I dont loose any more of my Mac ones!
So Thanks to Celia Birtwell (whoever you are!) for my cheap but good quality brushes!! :)
