Furless Cosmetics Review
Furless Brushes Review furlesscosmetics.com.au
I recently had the opportunity to try out some of the beautiful brushes by Furless Cosmetics.
They generously provided them for our most recent shoot. Tropical Dreams (above) was the second shoot for ZEBRALUTION, who are trying to encourage other make-up artists and the general public to seek cruelty free make-up products instead of using products that are still testing on animals, and using animal by-products. We choose instead to show that you can achieve beautiful results and get gorgeous make-up by using cruelty free make-up, and there are plenty of options out there! Click this sentence to see more about ZEBRALUTION.
Furless Cosmetics really harbours the same belief, that there is no need to use animal hair in makeup brushes. They are an Australian Company supplying premium quality makeup brushes and accessories that are stylish, functional, and most importantly, they are all fur-free.
Their wide range of cruelty free single brushes, brush sets, brush rolls and cases are all vegan and Halal friendly, and vary in price to suit the student, the makeup junkie or the professional makeup artist. Check out their website on more information on this awesome company.
We got to test the 'Perfectly Pink Makeup Brush Set 26' and the 'Black Beauty Makeup Brush Set 27' which both go for $79.99 each and are worth every penny! They each include about 8 brushes in each set ranging from powder brushes, precision eye liner brush, angled liner brush, small domed crease blending brush, angled contour brush etc. Our favourites were definitely the angled contour brush which I used with Arbonne Bronzer to get a perfectly contoured cheek, and the angled liner brush which I used as a lip brush to apply Melt Cosmetics lipstick in 'Stupid Love' which you can see in the behind the scenes video on this page.
All of the brushes were a joy to use and I would definitely recommend them to professionals and make-up enthusiasts alike! The high quality of these brushes means they pick up the product so well and apply so smoothly and easily to the face, which means you don't use as much product! Got to love that! I cant say enough of how much we really loved using these brushes, they are super soft and gentle, easy to use and look amazing as well, I'll definitely be adding more Furless brushes to my brush roll in the future!
