Buy or Bye: Nanshy Makeup Brushes

Let’s be honest, there’s no better feeling than brand new makeup brushes. So, when Nanshy reached out to me offering to send me a selection of their brushes*, I was super excited!

After receiving them just under a week ago, I wanted to share my full thoughts on the brushes I received and a makeup look with you all.

To start, let’s talk about Nanshy as a brand. Nanshy is a British beauty brand which focuses on vegan and cruelty free brushes and beauty tools. The brand has a very strong animal welfare ethos meaning all of their brushes are synthetic, which is great!


Moving onto the brushes themselves…

Conceal Perfector-

brush 3

This brush has quickly become one of my favourites for my foundation. The shape and size of the brush is perfect for blending my foundation and giving me great coverage.


brush 5

Before receiving this brush, I never used a specific brush for my concealer, but now I have, I’m never going back. This brush makes blending my under eye concealer so easy!

Stippling Brush-


Surprisingly this brush is perfect for blush. As it’s a light and duo-fibre brush, it picks up the right amount of product and leaves a natural finish on the skin.


brush 4

Contouring with this brush is so easy because the shape follows the natural contour on your cheeks. This brush also picks up the perfect amount of product, and blends in seamlessly.

Large Shader-

brush 6

I’ve found this brush extremely useful for applying cream eyeshadow or my eyeshadow base due to its firmness.

Eye Crease-

brush 7

Before applying my cream shadow, I will always work on my crease first. I’ve been using this brush to blend a transition shade into my crease, followed by another shade and this brush allows the shades to blend seamlessly together.



Typically, I don’t usually wear a gel liner so I’ve been using this brush to apply a dark eyeshadow to line my eyes and it works perfectly.

Overall, these brushes are lovely, affordable and super high quality.

Have you tried any brushes from Nanshy? Let me know in the comments or on Twitter @Emstagramr.

*These bushes were sent to me, but all opinions are my own.
