Look Good Feel Better Makeup Brushes

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. Although spared (thus far) dealing with breast cancer in particular, my Gramps - known as the "godfather" of the shipping industry in my city - was diagnosed with cancer last year so I know at first-hand the turmoil the disease, its diagnosis and treatment can cause in the lives of the patient and their family.
Look Good Feel Better is an organisation that supports women and teens who are struggling with visible side-effects of cancer treatment. Some of these side-effects can be damaging to self-esteem and confidence and I know some extrovert ladies who completely stopped venturing out after they started chemo. The organisation provides free hair, skincare and makeup services and workshops to women and teens, and thereby gives them a sense of normalcy. When I found Look Good Feel Better makeup brushes on FeelUnique, I bought some at once.

Scroll down for my thoughts on the Look Good Feel Better Makeup Brushes.




The complete range consists of 12 brushes and a blending sponge. These are manufactured by Bespoke Europe. Up to 12% of the price from each sale will be utilised for LGFB's activities.
I bought an Angled Blending Brush and The Makeover Brush Set. Both sets come packaged rather like the RT brushes. However, the Makeover Brush Set comes in a handy roll-up with magnetic closure.

The Makeover Brush Set has four brushes - a powder brush, a finishing brush, a tapered blending brush and a detail brush.

Each brush is precision-cut and has taklon bristles - they are cruelty-free, non-allergic and suitable for sensitive skin.

These are longer than the RT brushes and feel heavier as well. The handle is made of wood while the metal ferrule is densely packed with the super-soft bristles.  These brushes are among the softest I have come across.

While LGFB recommends the Powder Brush for loose and pressed powder, I have been using it for bronzers. I have been using it for the last couple of FOTDs I did. It picks up a LOT of product.
 The Finishing brush is a stippling brush that reminds me of the RT Stippling Brush, density- and bristle length-wise.

The Detail Brush is good for precision-application of concealer and shadow in the inner corners. Despite the tapering, it is far softer than it looks.
The Tapered Blending Brush is a gem! It is the most flexible of the lot, which helps it work well with my small, deep-set eyes.

The Angled Blending Brush is not part of the set; I bought it separately. It is a more flexible, less dense version of the Bdellium Tools 769 brush. I like the angled cut for blending colours into each other, and creating a seamless effect.
The slightly bedraggled look is because the brush was drying when I took the photo. None of the brushes has shed so far!

Verdict and where to buy the Look Good Feel Better Makeup Brushes

If you are looking to get new brushes or seeking back-ups, I highly recommend the Look Good Feel Better makeup brushes. The quality is excellent and the price is very affordable - the Makeover set cost £24.99. The Angled Blending Brush cost £6.99 - as also other individual eye brushes. I want to get the concealer brush next - it costs £7.99. Great prices, aren't they?
You can buy from LookFantastic here, FeelUnique here or HQHair here - all three of them deliver worldwide. If you live where Boots delivers and want to use up some Advantage points, buy these brushes here.
Remember, with each purchase, you are helping women and teens deal with the side-effects of cancer and regain their self-confidence and sense of normalcy.
One last thing - I am putting together a donation of some makeup items that LGFB recommends. I highly encourage anyone with a decent makeup stash, including samples from beauty boxes or elsewhere, to do so as well. You can find the list of products here. If you can, could you please help LGFB out with some of the products? I stand to gain NOTHING from your donations except for the satisfaction at having spread the word. Do reach out to them directly - LGFB has branches around the world. The link above is to the UK branch. The US website is here while the Canadian website is here
