Upping my makeup brush game with QVS brushes

QVS brushes

As most readers of this blog will know. I have an obsession with makeup and all things beauty. Especially makeup brushes. Now it could be because I’m too lazy to clean my brushes every week, but I just can’t resist a new set of brushes. There’s something pretty special about using a brush for the first time. I’m sure I’m addicted to that feeling. It would explain why I have so many brushes. But I’ve recently discovered a new brand of brushes that are affordable but perform like professional ones. And they’re the QVS brushes.

Now like me you probably haven’t heard much about this brand before. But I’m sure that will change. This cult Australian brand has been making waves with their affordable but effective brushes. And they’re now available in the UK. And in supermarkets! Prices start from just £4. All the brushes are created with a professional makeup artist in mind. They’re hardworking, super soft and apply makeup like a dream. Here are some of my favourites:

Flat Top Blusher Brush £6.99 

As this has a flat top, this brush is perfect for defining your facial contours meaning it’s fab for applying blusher, bronzer or even a little contour.

Compact Powder Brush £5.50 

Another small brush that packs a powerful punch. The compact brush head makes this ideal for applying foundation of a dusting of powder for a flawless finish.

Pro Size Cosmetic Tool Kit £14 

With five key brushes in this collection, this is excellent value for money. You get:

  • Powder Brush – I find this is great for applying foundation or bronzer as the super soft bristles seem to pick up the right amount of product each time
  • Foundation Brush – I find this brush just helps to create a flawless finish when applying my foundation
  • Eyeshdaow Brush – This soft fluffy brush is ideal for blending out your eyeshadow
  • Eyeshadow/Eyeliner Brush – Another fab brush that is perfect for applying eyeshadow or eyeliner thanks to it’s slanted brush tip
  • Lip Brush – I love the precision of this brush, it’s the best brush I’ve tried in a long time for applying lipstick or lip gloss


What do you think of these makeup brushes? Which brand of brushes do you like to use?

    Good quality brushes are so important and these look great. I need to learn to look after my brushes better too.

    I’d love to know if these were vegan as they’re so affordable & I need me some new brushes!

    These look good! I have so many brushed though, I really shouldn’t be looking at these. Ha! I mainly use a mix of Real Technique bold metal brushes with some Sigma and MAC ones thrown in there. I also recently tried the Body Shop ones and they were spectacular.

    I haven’t heard of this brand of brushes, but they are certainly affordable and they look great. I am terrible about cleaning my brushes too x

    These look great! I’m such a fail at a blogger – I don’t really use brushes for anything other than my eyeshadow/eye makeup! x

    These brushes look lovely and so reasonably priced too!

    They are so well priced. I’ve had so many make up brushes over the year and never quite found the right ones, these could be just right for me. Jo x

    They sound like a good brush. I always get skeptical of cheap brushes because of so many bad experiences with cheaper ones. I tried ELF ones before which were absolute rubbish, all of them fell apart in a few months. A good quality brush if you look after it will last years x

    I love new brushes too and mine are getting old so these would be a great replacement. Plus they are not too expensive as well!

  11. January 5, 2017 / 10:49 pm

    The new brushes look great I haven’t heard of that brand before and the brushes are very reasonably priced.

  12. January 5, 2017 / 11:00 pm

    Brushes are my weakness – I am forever buying new ones, although never too expensive as my favourite ones are actually from ebay or amazon! these looks so lovely and soft! Great review x

    I swear only this morning I binned my favourite blusher brush that I have clung onto for far too long. I had no idea that another great blusher brush could be only £6.99!

    I love buying new makeup brushes as well. Never heard of QVS though, such good prices x

  15. January 6, 2017 / 10:16 am

    Its amazing how expensive makes brushes are! We’ve never used one for blush or foundation, opting to use our fingers… eeeek! Must invest this year!

    Cannot beat good quality brushes, I didn’t know QVC did makeup brushes! xo

  17. January 6, 2017 / 7:30 pm

    these look lovely – I’ve had my brushes for a while now and really should invest in some new ones

  18. January 6, 2017 / 9:47 pm

    these makeup brushes look very good quality, I am very tempted to treat myself

  19. January 6, 2017 / 10:17 pm

    These are lovely! I actually need brushes as thrown mine away out of laziness and feeling they were well past cleaning haha x

    I love the price for the product!!! These look like gorgeous brushes and glad to know they are super soft and aid well in applying makeup!! I might have to grab some!

  21. January 7, 2017 / 5:43 pm

    Wow! I can’t believe the prices of these brushes, and they look such great quality too. The last lot of brushes I bought cost around £15-£20 each! I will have a look at these as I do need to replace some of mine x

  22. January 7, 2017 / 6:06 pm

    what a great price for these- they look really good too
    Need to get some for myself soon
