I got so excited when these arrived this week because I wanted to do an honest review and let you guys know whether it’s worth it. Plus I wanted to see if they lived up to my expectations, and if it was worth getting more.
So I’d read a bit about these on a few blogs and Instagram. They are by ‘Tonsee’ on Amazon, and they basically sell dupes of brushes and tools, such as real techniques brushes, beauty blenders and artis face brushes. I had my eye on a set of real techniques bold metal dupes but I thought I’d try a few first than dive into a set.
So I got the fan brush, which was just over a pound I think. When it arrived it was slightly crushed and bent in the case, but after one use it fanned out to what it should be. The bristles are so soft, and the brush is sturdy and well made. I intended on using it with highlight but ended up using it to bronze and contour. It’s so fluffy and blends really well. So chuffed with this!
Next I was desperate to see if the artis dupes held up. I got it with a brush egg, to clean my brushes, which both together were reduced to 97p. I know. I wasn’t holding out much hope for the brush. But I was so wrong. There are so many soft bristles compact that it’s like velvet on the skin and doesn’t leave anystreaks. It’s quite small, so is best to blend harder areas such as under eyes and nose. Yes it’s plastic handle isn’t the most fancy ever, but really what do you expect. It does the job and I don’t see why you would pay a fortune when this is so fab. I’m definitely going to try a bigger one they have, which comes with a metal handle too. The brush egg is also fab, and is sort of standard with those products so you can’t go wrong.
They took just under two weeks to be delivered, at the start of the period they suggested. They were packaged nicely and in almost perfect conditions ( just the squashed brush).
They do a huge range of brushes and sets for such ridiculously cheap prices it’s worth having a look for some experimenting. At the end of the day nothing is going to beat unboxing sigma or zoeva brushes, but for those who don’t want to fork out that much or like me, can’t really afford it right now, then these are perfect.
