Do you love Flamingos? I do! Aren’t they beautiful and enchanting! So when Girls with Attitude releases their latest addition, the FlaminGAL Collection, a brush set inspired by Flamingos, I’m like “Yasss please!”
The Full Set contains 7 x Face Brushes and 10 x Eye Brushes for flawless application for face, eyes and lips. The brushes are carefully hand-crafted with metallic pink handles, soft pastel ombre hairs and black ferrule with silver detailing! They are all well made, weighty and feel sturdy.
First up, let’s admire the Face Brushes! How pretty do they look on my vanity table!
Included in the set are:
- Large Dome Powder Brush
- Tapered Sculptor/Blush Brush
- Angled Bronzer Brush
- Stubby Oval Foundation Brush
- Large Fan Brush
- Small Fan Brush
- Nose Contour Brush
Here comes the Stubby Oval Foundation Brush. I must admit I was a little dubious about this brush for my foundation application at first. To my surprise, it does a marvellous job of blending out my foundation! It is super dense, giving a medium to full coverage. Owing to its shape, the Stubby Oval Foundation Brush manoeuvres around the curvy areas such as lips, nose and under eyes with ease. I use it to outline my contours and to blend out my under eye concealers too.
Above are the Large Dome Powder Brush, the Tapered Sculptor/Blush Brush and the Angled Bronzer Brush (L-R).
The Large Dome Powder Brush is soft and flexi. The bristle density is not too dense and I love applying loose setting powders with it.
The Angled Bronzer Brush is soft and fluffy. It buffs and blends out powder bronzers beautifully with a soft focus effect.
As the name suggests you can use the Tapered Sculptor/Blush Brush to contour your face or to apply blushes. It is the most dense brush out of the 3. That being said, it blends out my contour seamlessly and surprisingly not too big to apply blushers. Of course nothing’s stopping you to use it to apply highlighters too. Trust me, this dense brush will make any highlighters of yours pop!
Then we have the Fan Brushes! We all need fan brushes, just because they are beyond adorable!
The Large Fan Brush can be used to apply highlighters of course. You can also use it to apply contour and bronzing powders as it is dense and large enough. It is fab to sweep away any eyeshadow fall-out or to blend everything together after you have powdered for a seamless and flawless look.
Any lovers for intense highlighters out there? The Small Fan Brush applies them fantastically, the highlighter intensity remains but less of the skin texture emphasised. It is small enough for you to run highlighter under you brow bones too. Total LOVE!
Next up is this intriguing looking brush! This little baby got me slightly confused lol. My brush collection is quite healthy yet I haven’t got one like this. A Nose Contour Brush! Genius! Just what the doctor ordered! I love contouring my nose (or rather I need to contour my nose hah!) This baby hugs the tip and the sides of my nostrils with love! It is perfect to run contour lines to magically give my nose ridge some much needed height and shape. This is my favourite brush from the set!
Next up we have 10 brushes for eyes, brow and lips.
- Concealer Brush
- Eye Shader Brush
- Fluffy Blending Brush
- Fluffy Tapered Blending Brush
- Angled Eyeshadow Brush
- Flat Detailing Eye Brush
- Domed Crease Brush
- Pencil Brush
- Flat Definer Brush
- Angled Brow Brush
Pictured above are the Fluffy Tapered Blending Brush, the Fluffy Blending Brush, the Angled Eyeshadow Brush, the Domed Crease Brush, the Eye Shader Brush and the Pencil Brush (L-R). All these brushes pick up and deposit products efficiently. The Domed Crease Brush is a God-send for those with small or hooded eyes. I also use it for spot concealing. The Fluffy Blending Brush is fab at blending out transitional shades so no harsh lines. It’s great for precise contouring too.
As the bristles are synthetic, these brushes have less gives than real hair brushes. On the plus side, they perform just as well with cream eyeshadows.
The last four brushes are pictured below. From left to right we have: the Flat Definer Brush, the Flat Detailing Eye Brush, the Concealer Brush and the Angled Brow Brush.
The Flat Definer Brush can be used to apply eyeshadows along the lower lash line, tight-line and to line your eyes. Personally I would like the bristles to be a little softer.
The Flat Detailing Brush is a multi-tasker; from tight-line your eyes to tidy up your brows or as a lip liner.
The Concealer Brush is great for dabbing concealer on. You can also use it to outline your cream contours if that is your jam:)
The Angled Brow Brush outlines, fills and defines my brows well. The bristles are quite dense. I tend to gravitate to less dense brow brushes for a little more control.
Oh, you will be glad to know that there has been no shedding and the beautiful ombré colours of the bristles remains after washing.
So what do you think? Do you agree with me that these GWA FlaminGAL Collection brushes are fit for a princess? They look and function beautifully. This set of 17 pieces is all you need to complete your entire makeup routine.
