Australis Brushes

Australis have recently bought out a new range of brushes and I was lucky enough to be sent two of them to try. I received the foundation brush and the lip brush. The first thing that I noticed was the gorgeous packaging. They are black and pink with a very cute little flower on them (you can see the flower in the picture below). I really like the look of the brushes, they look sleek and sophisticated. 

For such cheap brushes the quality is surprisingly good. The lip brush is the best lip brush I've ever used. Its has a wider head than other lip brushes I've used which makes applying my lip products a lot quicker and easier. 

The foundation brush is also good. It's not as dense as others that I've used, but it does a great job of applying my foundation. I've found that it applies my foundation better than more dense brushes and I get less streaking. Where this brush really stands out is as a cream blush brush. I've been using this to apply my cream blush for a few weeks now and it does an amazing job.

As you can see in the picture below, they come in a reusable pouch. On the back of the pouch are instructions for use and washing instructions.

Here's what Australis have to say about their brushes: trusted experts in cosmetics, we know the tools of the trade. Different cosmetics applications require precise brushes for optimum results. We see the need for high quality brushes suitable for your every make-up application. We hav selected superior grade synthetic fibres, packed perfectly for specific application needs.

Regarding the foundation brush Australis says: Why this brush? The tapered brush fits the contours of your face and blends product seamlessly. The synthetic bristles won't absorb oils or products, making it the most hygenic way to apply product and gives the most natural looking coverage possible. It can be used with any liquid or cream make-up such as foundation, mousse foundation and shimma sticks.

Regarding the lip brush Australis says: Why this brush? The small, tapered point allows you to easily swipe colour and gloss. can be used to line the outer rims of your lips for extra definition. Retractable brush head means you won't get gloss or colour all over your belongings. Use this brush with all lipsticks, lipglosses and lip balms. 

The lip brush has nylon hair, and aluminium handle and a polyvinylchloride pouch.
The foundation brush has nylon fiber hair, a wood handle and a polyvinylchloride pouch.

The Australis brush range consists of every brush you could possibly want: eyeshadow contouring brush, eyeshadow brush, angled liner brush, base eyeshadow applicator, blush brush, powder brush, kabuki brush, foundation brush, retractable lip brush and a brush set. All of the brushes (including the brush set) are priced under $20.

Would I buy these? Yes, they are great if you're looking for cheap brushes.
