Affordable Ebay Brushes (Jessup Brushes)
I purchased a Jessup brush set when I first started out in makeup and I still love many of the brushes in that set and use them every day. This summer I ordered this 15 piece set, but didn't start using them until recently. The bristles are labeled synthetic-natural and I wasn't impressed with them until I started using them. They remind me of a natural bristle brush. They're not very dense but work very well when you want to built your color. It doesn't grab too much pigmentation and it blends very well. My favorite are the blending brushes, pencil brush, and small detail brush.
I own Sigma, Morphe and other affordable brushes and these have become some of my favorite brushes. The shape of the blending brushes really work well for me. They are not scratchy at all, which is great. I own some Morphe natural brushes and I don't like using them because their scratchy. While these are labeled synthetic-natural, I feel like they are more synthetic than natural. I've washed them and they do fray but maintain their overall shape. Similar to how my Morphe natural hair brushes wash.
If you do purchase these brushes, and you're not sure how they will perform. Try them out, give them a chance. I was so surprised by how much I love using them. The white-rose gold look is really pretty too. I purchased a second set because they are so affordable. If you're looking for extra brushes, I would check these out. I've been really into brushes lately, but I'm also picky with scratchy brushes and these have made the cut.
Have you ever tried any Jessup brushes?
