My quest for growing my makeup brush collection is ongoing and recently I got to try out the L.A.B² Strokes Of Genius Eye Brush Set*. L.A.B² is an American brand which aims to bring high quality brushes at a fraction of the price of the competition. Their philosophy is to have Beauty Without Compromise and promise to always give Luxe For Less. The brushes come in neon orange and black packaging which stands out and is very eye catching. You can see the brushes through the plastic display sleeve which is always nice so you can see before you buy. On the back is a lot of useful information including a cut out guide on how best to use each brush.
In the set you get 5 essential brushes to create anything from a simple natural look to a dramatic smoky eye. All their brushes have rubberized handles which I find makes the brush comfortable to hold and easy to guide. Also each brush has its usage printed on the brush handle which is very handy.
Eyeshadow Brush – “Distributes colour evenly onto the lids, crease and brow bone.” I can 100% agree with their description of this brush, it’s the perfect shadow brush to dust a single shade all over the lid and bonus it’s not at all scratchy!
Crease Brush – “Accentuates the crease and blends colours seamlessly together to soften harsh lines.” Eyeshadow is my favourite product to buy and experiment with so blending brushes are a must for me! After all blend is your friend remember! It does exactly what it says on the tin and does it perfectly!
Pointed Eyeliner Brush – “Delivers a precise, firm and even line.” I haven’t managed to try this brush out yet as I’m on a felt tip liner kick at the moment.
Brow & Liner Brush – “Fills in brows and lines eyes for extra definition.” As I said above I like my felt tip liner pens so have only tried this brush on my brows. It’s a great brush for filling in brows and may work better for liner but I think I prefer my Zoeva 322 Brush as it’s more firm so I can really carve out my brows.Brow & Lash Groomer – “Grooms, combs and defines brows and lashes.” With a spoolie on one end and the comb and brush on the other this is the perfect brush to carry round with you if you travel. I love to use the spoolie to comb through my brows once I’ve filled them in and the brush to tame the beasts but find I don’t use the comb very much. I don’t have the most steady hands so don’t like to use anything near my eye other than a mascara wand.
Overall this is a perfect set for if you’re a beginner with makeup or if you’re more experienced this is a great addition to your collection. This set plus other brushes are available from Superdrug and are on offer at the moment.
Have you tried these brushes before? What were your thoughts?
