AYU Make Up Brush Review

So recently I was kindly sent some make up brushes from Suzie at AYU Make Up and I knew from first impression that these babies would be amazeballs. But obviously I had to try them out for awhile and properly see what their pros and cons were and do my research. I was sent seven brushes, three single face brushes and a set of four eye brushes and they were all the basics without being basic. From a flat foundation brush to a blender brush, with these seven brushes you were able to create a whole look, and so thats what I did!!

As you can see (this picture is not filtered before you guys say anything, natural lighting is an amazing thing!) I created a flawless look that lasted the whole night out and these brushes definitely had a part in this! I used all of my normal products and sometimes I find my foundation slides off around one of my jaw bones but for once it stayed in place, like it should!

The next thing that did it for me, which I look for in a make up brush, is how easy it was to clean these brushes! Only a small amount of shampoo was needed for all seven brushes and afterwards they looked like new! Its great how well some brushes hold there product but when you want to clean them there is nothing worse than have to scrub them for ages, because this can ruin your brushes in the long run.

                  ( How clean it is after washing compared to other brushes from different brands!)

One thing which at the start was a negative thing for my was the short handles. Now dont get me wrong, what has the handle have to do with the actual brush? But a good long handle never goes astray with me. After one night away that I brought my brushes with me I released that the shorter handle was actually a good thing! They are far better for travelling with as they fit into my brush holder without bending the bristles like all my other brushes do! So I was in the wrong to judge the handle the way I did...

                                                 So I was gifted with the All About Eyes set which included a Blender Brush, Crease Brush, Eyeliner Brush and Pro Blender Brush.  I was also given a Flat Foundation Brush, a Powder Brush and a Duo Fibre Brush all necessary when creating a flawless base.

So all in all this is a fantastic brand and I couldn't recommend it anymore! My favorite brush has to be the Blender brush, it applied my eye shadow so effortlessly. I can wait to buy more of these brushes, and they don't just sell brushes they also have Beauty Blenders and Brush Cleaners which aid the cleaning of your brushes enormously! So head over to AYU Make Up and tell Suzie I sent you!! Oh did I mention, they're Irish?

Thanks so much for reading,

Posing in Poland...

I have been super duper quiet these last few weeks for many reasons but mainly because I have my head buried in books studying for my collage exams. I'm trying to get everything ready for when collage is over by preparing blog posts in advance and working with some companies for giveaways/collaborations to come and stuff like that but I know I struggle when it comes to finding balance between being a full time student, working part time and blogging (my favorite thing obvs ).

Back in April I brought Niall to Poland as part of his Christmas present (best girlfriend ever!) and the both of us had an amazing time! We saw so much and got to do loads of fun things while we were there and I definitely think there is a second trip on the horizon....

I didn't get to take loads of outfit pictures but on our last day we made use of the only dull day by taking some quick snaps!

I cannot wait to go back exploring Krakow, it was by far one of the nicest cities I've ever been to and to make it even better they sell Inglot make-up for half the price because its produced in Poland!!

Hopefully this is the start of getting back into the swing of things for Pearls & Poison!
If you havn't already done so, add me on snapchat UN: shaaza21
