  1. This is a really interesting post. I must confess, I’ve never given alot of thought to brushes! what really got my attention though was that you mentioned natural brushes and synthetic brushes. Are natural brushes are made of fur? This is something I would never consider wearing due to the cruelty involved but it never even crossed my mind that brushes may be in the same boat. I guess I’ll have to pay more attention next time i’m brush shopping 🙂

    1. Hi Lucy, that’s a really good point and one that definitely got me Googling! I couldn’t find anything concrete either way, however, Cocktail Cosmetics state that they only sell PETA approved brands and they sell Japonesque brushes. Unfortunately I (rather ignorantly) don’t know enough about brushes to know whether “natural” means fur, but it’s definitely something I’m looking into so as soon as I find out more I’ll reply 🙂

      Thanks for your comment as you’ve definitely got me thinking! xx

  2. Thanks for the review! I was eyeing a few of the brushes in John Lewis a couple of weeks ago, but couldn’t make up my mind.
    Now I know what to look for 🙂
    And just a bit related, did you try the real techniques brushes?

    1. Thanks Diana 🙂 Funny you should say that as I was eyeing their Base kit on my last visit….might have to get it now, for reviewing purposes, obviously….;) xx
