Fraulein 38 Professional Brushes Review

Everybody knows that good brushes are the basis of any budding MUA's kit, but what do you do if you don't have a squillion pounds to spend on MAC/Bobbi Brown/Sigma brushes? You take a risk apparently.

Whilst I was putting together the basics of my freelance kit a couple of months ago, I did exactly that and ordered a brush set from - I couldn't find any English reviews, and most of the non-English reviews I could find were on youtube anyway, so Google Translate was no help!

I was pleasantly surprised! For a mere £17.99, I was met with super soft, high quality brushes that make applying make-up a dream and more than meet my current needs. Have a little looksee at my video to find out more:

  1. Thanks for doing this! Love your review. I've been looking into getting a new set of brushes for ages and considered these and a silk pro set of amazon, but as you said there are no reviews about for these ones which is off putting!

    I'be brought two mac brushes recently and they really aren't as amazing as I'd built them up to be so I'm going to definitely get some of these. Just wondering there is an empty space at the right end of the brush roll, is there one missing? :)

  2. Beautyfiend - Hello! Thanks :) No, there's not a brush missing - this is just how it came. I'm guessing they use the same roll for some of their bigger brush sets? I'm not sure! But there's definitely the right amount of brushes! Hope that helps xx

  3. I ordered from them, I love their brushes except for 4. Nice blog, just followed.

  4. Shade - Glad you like the brushes! Thank you for following :) x

  5. I just watched the video, was a great review, so thorough. I had seen a few on their products on ebay, but really wasn't sure what they would be like. I really don't need to spend any more money on make up or brushes right now, but will definitely bear these in mind!
