Oval brushes seem to be all the rage right now, but honestly eye brushes of this kind of shape are ones that have never massively appealed to me. It’s taken me long enough to get comfortable with my favourite blending brushes and these are such a different shape it’s a whole new world – really. Nonetheless I’ve been giving these a try for ages now and I feel ready to give my thoughts. This offering of brushes comes from luxury beauty box company Cohorted. The Shadow and Sculpt Set is £40 and contains five brushes that are synthetic and cruelty-free. Two brushes are designed for contouring smaller areas of the face (eg. the nose) and the other three are for the eyes. They also sell face brushes – all of which can be purchased as a set or individually. Before I chat to you about each individual brush, as an overview, the rose gold is very attractive and the soft touch handle makes then easy to hold – the only point to make here is they rather light – a positive or negative depending on what you look for.

This brush is supposed to be an ideal multitasker, it’s designed to both blend and apply shadow – much like the MAC 217’s of this world. This brush is neither a like nor dislike of mine – it’s good at what it claims to do, but I’d rather have two of the flat shaders instead.
