My First Time using an Oval Brush set

I'm such a terrible person for getting out of habits. Once I find  a technique that works, I usually stick with it. I almost always wear the same winged liner, the same eyeshadow combo, and heck, I can even put my makeup on with my eyes closed because it's usually the same blending technique every time. If it ain't broke, don't fix it! AMIRITE!?! 

So when I was recently sent a beautiful set of oval makeup brushes for review, my first thought was "dafuq am I supposed to do with THOSE?!?!" I enjoy the stippling I need to do with my beauty blender. I'm good at it, it looks what's this new oval brush business about anyway! I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to use the brushes. While it definitely took some getting used to, I was happy to noticed how much LESS product I needed for full face coverage. 

The bristles are so soft and dense that I needed much less foundation than when I used my beauty blender. That's a HUGE bonus in my book. I'm still getting the blending techniques down, but I recommend stepping out of your comfort zone and trying something new. I still prefer to use my regular beauty blender, but that's only because old habits die hard!!
