Review: Louise Young Brushes


A couple of months ago the folks from Louise Young contacted me inviting me to try a sample of their brush collection. Having drooled unceremoniously over the super jumbo massive round foundation brush (which you can see above far right) for many months prior to that, I quickly said yes. A few weeks later (they are an English brand) they were in my hands and I was ready to play. 


The brushes came wrapped in this super chichi brown leatherette wrap/roll case which is super handy for travel.


There’s a little snap pocket you can see there on the left hand side of the case/roll but I’ll be honest – I have no idea what that’s for. I would worry about putting anything small in there as it’s not particularly secure. If you know what it’s for please help a girl out!


The beauty of the beast is what’s inside. True to form, the brushes are supple, soft, easily washable, hold their shape, and apply product like a dream. As can be expected, my favorite is the LY34 brush, aka the super-size-me foundation brush. I love how it can easily buff or swipe-blend depending on what stage of applying foundation you’re in. Lovely. Especially for large-faced girls like moi.

      Synthetic and natural hairs. I tried to find out more about the natural hairs and nothing says they are cruelty-free. Guess they’ll have to chime in with whether they are or not. :-/

    I’ll have to check these out! I’m always on the hunt for a new brush or two… Right now I’m in search of a dream blending brush (I know, I know 217. But… I’m just curious what else is out there!)

    I’m guessing that the extra pocket is to hold additional brushes that you can’t live without! Have a great weekend.

    I love makeup brushes. I use them for foundation, rouge and eye shadow. The make the task so much quicker and the result smoother. Sometimes I also use them for eyeliner. With this set you would have a brush for everything. Lovely. Thanks for showing them.
