Hi there! I’ve wanted to review Poundland’s own brand make-up brushes for quite some time – because I’ve been using them for ages and I’m very happy with them. Allura is Poundland’s old own brand. They do all kinds of different brushes – kabuki, foundation, blush, powder and eyeshadow brushes. And I’ve got them all.
I’ve only taken pictures of the double-ended angled eyeshadow brush, the kabuki brush and the angled blush brush – that’s because these were the only unused back-up brushes I could find right now. I also want to apologise for the poor photo quality. Due to the lighting it was impossible to take better pics of the brushes in their original packaging. But back to the brushes!
What I like about Poundland’s make-up brushes is that they’re synthetic. If you’ve got trouble with brushes with natural (= animal hair) bristles, you’ll be fine when you use these brushes because the bristles are 100% synthetic.
I also love the quality of Allura’s make-up brushes. I’ve been using some of their brushes for well over a year – and they still look pretty good. I clean my eyeshadow brushes after each use, so I’m not easy on them!
The design of these brushes is also quite pretty. I really like the black / white / hot pink colour combo. I think these brushes look girly, but they don’t look as cheap as they are. 🙂
I’m very happy with my Poundland make-up brushes and I can only recommend them. I also think these would be great for someone who’s just starting to get into make-up, but who likes to experiment. A collection of all of Poundland’s make-up brushes would make a great gift for a young lady!
Poundand’s Allura make-up brushes are £1 each. But Poundland is currently giving some of its own brand stuff a make-over. And these pretty brushes are being replaced with simple black & white ones under their Make-Up Gallery brand. If you’d rather have these girly ones, you need to be quick!
