Primark PS Pro oval brushes

I am a huge fan of Primark and it isnt something I am afraid to say and I can spend many hours in the Tottenham Court Road store just browsing (I just wish they would sort the changing room queues out) and it is rare that I leave with nothing. More recently, I have found that Primark have really upped their game in the beauty department, more so with the release of their new PS PRO range of oval shaped makeup brushes, which on the face of it appear to be the perfect dupe for high-end Artis oval brushes which I have seen all over Instagram and Twitter, but the prices differ massively as you might expect.


I have been itching to try Oval brushes for quite some time now and did have some in a basket on eBay to try until I saw these quite accidentally and instead purchased the lot. Oval brushes seemed to become a must-have item when Kylie Jenner shared her love for them and here are mine.

As you can see, the P.S Pro Oval Brushes come in three sizes: small, medium and large, simple as that with no fancy names or numbering system to remember. The small blending brush (£2.50) is the brush that I use for a variety of different tasks such as blending eyeshadow, applying my concealer around the sides of my nose and under my eyes. The medium brush (£3) is one of the brushes I use the most and it is perfect for liquid foundations, bronzers, blushers and you can use it for contouring, highlighting, strobing and even non makeup tasks such as applying your moisturiser (If it is good enough for Kylie Jenner). The final brush, the large blending brush (£4) can again be used for the tasks mentioned above and especially great for applying foundations. 

I absolutely love these brushes and think they are more than amazing value for money. The bristles are synthetic and really nice and dense, really soft on the skin and haven't shredded a single hair in the months that I have had them. They work really well with both liquids and powders, though you might need to use a little more liquid than you would normally use with traditional makeup brushes until you get to grips with how much they suck in when using. The end result is seamless, no hairs stuck to your face and no visible shading and blending lines. 

Washing them is also no issue. I use my Real Techniques gel cleaner and haven't found they need much more attention than any other makeup brushes that I own to clean, but I do run them through water until it runs clear. Once I am happy they are clean, I leave then bristles facing down, usually hanging over the sink, to air dry. Once dried, the bristles are back to their original softness. 

I absolutely love these brushes and as ive said, think they are an absolute bargain. If like me you had been wanting to give an oval brush a try but wasnt quite ready to splash the cash, Primark is worth visiting to grab these to try because if you don't like them, then you haven't wasted a lot of money.



Have you tried oval brushes yet?

  2. Great to know that cheaper products are also just as good, I've never been very good at doing my own makeup, but these brushes seem great for starting out :)

  3. That oval brush looks fab. I like Primark too, especially the home department, but sadly our nearest one is about an hours drive away :(

  13. I, too, have seen all the Insta feed madness with regards to these brushes and want in and at these prices, I am sold!!! They sounds perfect and love that they are easy to clean...plus who knew you could apply moisturiser with them. I agree that Primark are upping their beauty offer - I am planning a Matte lipstick splurge and their contour stick kit is looking a must too.

    Thanks for sharing!

  15. These oval brush things have really been intriguing me over the past few months but all the ones I've seen are really expensive so I think it's great that Primark are offering a version of them! Now all I need is for Primark to come to Australia...

  17. Not tried the ovals yet, some are soooo expensive. I've always been a fan of brushes compared to beauty blenders, but more so fingers, even back in my therapist days. These sound fab for the price, glad to hear they're synthetic and nothing bad. I do sometimes worry about Primarks ethics
