all i want for christmas is: a full set of space.nk make-up brushes

When it comes to make-up, I’ve pretty much always been a smudge and smear kind of girl. Sure, I’ve used brushes before, but they always seemed like such a hassle – loose bristles plastered to cheeks, too much to keep clean, scratchiness, etc. Finger-painting my face just seemed easier.

My hue-hungry eyes, however, have now been sprung open. During a recent trip to Space.NK.Apothecary, I sat myself down in one of those high, swivel-ly chairs and let one of the company’s lovely senior beauticians do her worst.

The brushes she used – which were from a special line created specially for Space.NK – were so soft and, when I held them in my hand, very nicely weighted. And the precision that they allowed, without the oh-too-common shedding, was worth writing to you guys about. 

I was lucky enough to be given the blusher brush to try out myself, but if there’s anyone out there who’d like to buy me the whole set (£85), I’d be most grateful. Wait, is that too cheeky?
