I would be the first person to admit that I am certainly not the most girly of girls. However when I saw this sparkly case at work I basically squealed at the amazing tackiness of it and had to hide the last one in the stock room for weeks before I could afford to buy it as I am on a very tight budget at the moment. I have been wanting to buy some proper make up brushes for a while now and learn the art of correctly applying make up. These brushes were a little steep at£14, although I have seen single brushes in Boots for the same amount. I think these are a great starting set as they have what each brush is for written on the bottom and are really sort too. I am a bit of a make up novice and the type of girl who buys whichever foundation is cheapest, but would like to invest in some proper brushes, lotions and potions in the future. Does anybody have any recommendations?
