It's no secret, you guys know by know that I frickin love Girls With Attitude, they are by far my favourite online brand and they are just killing it right now with all their new releases. Towards the end of last year they brought us the most beautiful highlighting palette (take a look at that beauty here), January we saw the release of their Unicorn Brushes and a few weeks ago they brought out their Rainbow Brush collection, which is what I'm going to discuss with you all today. I'm such a sucker for makeup brushes and the prettier they are the better. A few months ago I was obsessing over the Girls With Attitude fairytale bushes, actually wait I still am and I honestly didn't think they would be able to better them, because they are just some seriously stunning looking brushes! Don't believe me, take a look at my review on them here. Anyway back to the point of this post, the new GWA Rainbow brushes are so beautiful, so stunning and anyone who loves makeup just as much as me needs to get their hands on these. They well and truly are #goals.
I don't think I need to really give a description on how these brushes look, because as you can see from the pictures, they are just breath taking; but as this is a review, I'll go into all the details. First of all I love the colours used on the bristles, you have hot pink at the tips, which fades into purple and then a gorgeous turquoise colour at the base of each brush. I love this combination of colours and it really does give a pretty rainbow effect. Then we get down to the part of the brush you hold (what is this called by the way? I have no idea, a handle?) Girls With Attitude know we all love a bit of Rose Gold, so the rose gold cut out detailing on the brushes get a massive tick from me. These brushes are so nice to hold and I'm so obsessed with the overall look of them. The only downside to having such beautiful makeup brushes, is that they're just to pretty to use. I refused to use these for a good few days after getting them because I couldn't bare to dirty them up. However I took the plunge so I can give you the details on each brush in the collection.
The Rainbow brush collection is sold as a 10 piece set and contains 6 face brushes and 4 eye brushes, so GWA have you fully covered for applying a full face of makeup. The only thing that I possibly would have liked to of seen in this collection is a fan brush, because they're just the best thing to apply highlighter. I own quite a few fan brushes anyway so it's not too much of a problem for me, but if you are looking for one of these, then I recommend you looking at the GWA Unicorn Brushes as that contains a large and small one.
Tapered Sculptor Brush; is the perfect brush to add any blusher or I like to use it when I want an all over bronzed look. I love the tapered end of this brush, it slightly domes so that it makes popping my blush to the apples of my cheeks really easy. It's also another great brush for applying powder all over my face.
Angled Bronzer Brush; This is one of my favourite brushes in the set, because I love a good contour and this is the perfect brush to apply and blend out my bronzer when I want to define my cheek bones. It's the angle of this brush that makes application so easy and faultless because it aligns perfectly with my cheekbones. The brush is really fluffy too, so it blends out those harsh lines like a dream.
Flat Top Buffing Brush; In the Girls With Attitude Fairytale Collection, there is a brush just like this and I'm obsessed with it. I love using mine for applying my foundation which gives my foundation a dreamy smooth finish. This brush does exactly the same and I love it. I know some people only use bueaty blenders for their foundations now, but in my opinion this brush is better and I've not picked up my beauty blender since using this brush, its definitly time to switch things up a bit.
Tapered Illuminating Brush; This soft fluffy brush is perfect for setting my concealer underneath my eyes. If you saw my 'Top Ten Beauty Must Haves' post the other week, you may have saw me rave about the Makeup Revolution Contour Palette and I use the yellow powder in there to set my cream highlighting products and this is my brush of choice for that application as its just the right size. The fluffiness of the brush means I can smooth things over easily and I love the tapered end as it makes getting into those smaller places, like round my eyes and nose really easy and precise.
Flat Top Small Angled Buffing Brush; I love any brush that can help define my brows and make them look better and this brush is perfect for applying my shimmery highlights underneath my brow bone. The angel of the brush makes this super easy and my brows look defined in seconds. It's the perfect brush if you want to up your brow game.
Fluffy Blending Brush; I love a smokey eye, even on those minimal makeup days I love adding a warm brown eyeshadow though my crease and blending it out as it makes it look like I've made more of an effort. This blending brush is perfect for all my favourite crease colours and I love the way it blends out my eyeshadows. The tapered end means it doesn't blend my eyeshadow anywhere I don't want it to go and my eye look always comes out perfect whenever I've used this brush, its another favourite of mine from this collection.
Angled Blending Brush; This is another great brush that I use to blend out my eyeshadow, the angle makes it perfect for deepening colour towards my outer eye and the fluffiness of the brush makes blending effortless. I love playing around with my eyeshadows and creating new looks, so this brush is a very welcomed addition to my collection and I don't have anything else like it.
Flat Eye Shading Brush; When it comes to placing one colour all over the lids of my eyes, this brush is my go too. It's pretty firm, which makes the shadows quite compact when pressed down. This is an essential in any makeup brush set and this one does the job perfectly.
Precision Smudge Brush; I feel like the eyeshadow brushes the Rainbow collection really are perfect for creating the ultimate smokey eye and another brush that helps me nail that look is this one. This smudge brush is perfect for working any shadow underneath the lash line and smudging it out; I love the look that this creates. The brush is small and compact, so I can easily and accurately apply shadow exactly where I want it to go.
So there we have it, I'm sure you will agree that this makeup brush set looks absolutely beautiful but I promise you that its just as good as it looks! With Valentine's day just around the corner, these would make a perfect gift, either treat yourself, your bestie or get you loved one on the case and drop plenty of hints! You can find all these brushes over on the Girls With Attitude website here.
