Friday Ebay bargains #92

ebay-brushes-under-5-dollars
1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 //

A while ago you might have read this article, where I had put together a few of my favorite make-up brush sets. Today, however, I have combined four individual make-up brushes and one set, all of which I purchased a few hours ago from Ebay.
That's why you can definitely expect some review posts about the items in early September, when I'll have received all of the brushes and had had the time to properly try them out. This way it'll be possible to give you my honest opinion about the quality, functionality and shipping. I'll also be able to tell you whether the brushes are worth your money at all! All individual brushes are made for foundation or powder application, however, the five-brush set is made specifically for blending eyeshadows. I truly hope that the brushes in the set will have soft bristles (at least in the name of the product the buyer had included the word "soft"!), because I think that that's one of the most important things in making eyeshadow application more enjoyable. I also feel that having soft make-up brushes helps to improve the longevity and quality of the applied make-up. I already have some experience with eyeshadow brushes from Ebay (my review here), but I hope that these will be better quality, because the price I paid for these brushes was double the price I paid for the previous ones. Nevertheless, I should mention that the set cost a bit under five dollars anyway. 
I can't wait to receive brush number one, which is really similar to the Bare Minerals Perfecting Face brush, but, being a dupe, it's a lot cheaper (the Bare Minerals one costs about 30$). This brush grabbed my attention with the round "hole" in the middle, which is meant for smoother application of liquid products. The second most coveted item from this list is brush number two, this one being similar to the Sigma 3DHD kabuki brush, but of course, it has a much friendlier price (the Sigma one costs 24$). I find the design very interesting and I can't wait to see how that will effect the functionality and application.

Iespējams kādu laiku atpakaļ lasījāt šo rakstu, kurā es biju apkopojusi dažus no maniem mīļākajiem kosmētikas otu komplektiem. Šodien, savukārt, esmu apkopojusi  četras individuālās kosmētikas otas un vienu otu komplektu, jeb lietas, kuras šodien iegādājos ar Ebay starpniecību. Līdz ar to variet gaidīt atsauksmju rakstu par iegādātajām lietām, aptuveni Septembra pirmajā pusē, kad būšu saņēmusi visas otas un noprovējusi tās, lai sniegtu jums savu patieso viedokli gan par kvalitāti, funkcionalitāti, cenas atbilstību produktam, piegādi utml. Visas individuālās otas ir paredzētas sejas kosmētikas uzklāšanai, savukārt piecu otiņu komplekts ir domāts tieši acu ēnu pludināšanai. Ļoti ceru, ka otiņu komplekts būs ar mīkstiem sariņiem ( vismaz produkta nosaukumā bija minēts, ka tās ir "soft", jeb mīkstas!), jo uzskatu, ka tas ir viens no galvenajiem priekšnosacījumiem acu ēnu kvalitatīvai un patīkamai uzklāšanai. Man ir jau neliela pieredze ar acu ēnu otiņām no Ebay ( atsauksmju raksts šeit), bet ceru, ka šīm būs nedaudz labāka kvalitāte, jo summa, ko samaksāju arī bija divreiz lielāka nekā iepriekšējajam komplektam, lai gan jāpiemin, ka komplekts tik un tā maksāja vien nedaudz zem pieciem dolāriem!
Ar īpašu nepacietību es gaidu otu numur viens, kura ir ļoti līdzīga Bare Minerals Perfecting Face brush, tikai par daudz reiz pieņemamāku cenu, jo Bare Minerals ota maksā aptuveni trīdesmit dolārus! Šajā otiņā tieši piesaistīja apļveida rezervuārs otiņas viducī, kas ir paredzēts šķidruma ērtākai uzklāšanai. Savukārt, otra otiņa, kuru nespēju sagaidīt ir otiņa numur divi, kura savukārt ir ļoti līdzīga Sigma 3DHD kabuki otai, bet arī par daudz reiz draudzīgāku cenu, jo Sigma otas cena ir vismaz divdesmit  četri dolāri! Ļoti interesants liekas otas dizains un esmu ieinteresēta redzēt to kā tas ietekmēs otas funkcionalitāti un uzklāšanas ērtumu!

  2. I love buying eBay and Amazon brushes! Set #4 looks so good--you should definitely let us know how it works. I got a Mac 217 blending brush dupe from eBay once and I absolutely love it. Also, brush #3 looks like the NARS kabukis!
