Wilkinson is my weakness. No matter how much I tell myself I'm "just popping in for...", I will come out with a horde of homewares, stationery, storage boxes and so on. Needless to say, I couldn't resist when I saw these gorgeous make up brushes. To be honest, I bought them because I was hoping they'd be cheap Real Techniques dupes. They look alike so they must be similar, right?
Of the three I bought (there is also a foundation brush but it's always out of stock when I visited, as well as lip, eyeshadow and other basics), the powder brush is by far my favourite. It's absolutely huge and has a fluffy quality that defies its low price. When using with my powder, I find it picks up a decent amount of product and applies evenly in just a couple of swipes.
Unfortunately, the blusher brush isn't quite as great for me. The brushes are more wiry which makes it difficult to apply evenly. No matter how much I try, I always end up with blotchy, inconsistent blusher. However, the concealer brush is more of a success. It's a decent size- fine enough for accurate application but still large enough to blend effectively. Using this brush, my concealer goes on evenly and I've found it very easy to blend outwards, although it does have a tendency to pick up too much product, even with a light touch.
Although there are a couple of problems, I am astounded by the quality for such a great price. If only they'd restock the foundation brush!
