Oriflame blending brush review

Hey guys,

Here is the review on a brush that I have been meaning to review since so long but never got around to it. It is a very affordable brush from Oriflame cosmetics. How I found the quality to be? Read on to know more.

Price:- 169/- when I bought it

When I first saw this brush in the catalog I thought that it is a pretty inexpensive brush and does deserve a try. I ordered it and tried it. But unfortunately I found the brush a bit harsh to be used on the eyelids. I am not sure if I have very thin eyelids or something but any brush that is even a little bit harsh irritates the eyes. And this brush ended up being a bit too rough.



It is not good at blending eye shadows because I believe the density of the brush is less and the bristles are too long. Also the brush sheds on me a lot too. I use the brush mainly to apply my Mac prep+prime under the eyes to set the concealer( Read the review here). It is not one of my softest brushes and I don’t even think it does the blending job well.


However if you are very new to eye makeup and want to first practice with affordable brushes you could give it a try. I have read some good reviews too, so I m not sure if the brush that I received is a bit harsh. I personally would not recommend it to you guys.

PROS:-

1.       Affordable
2.       Easy to set concealer with it

CONS:-

1.       Harsh bristles
2.       Irritates the eyes
3.       Does not blend well
4.       Sheds
My rating:- 2/5

IMO there might be inconsistency about these brushes in terms of quality because, mine are quite soft and not scratchy like how yours look in the photo
