New make up brushes from eBay!

Earlier this week I got a super exciting package through the post. It can't just be me that finds letters/packages really exciting!? But this one was even better because inside was the new make up brushes I had ordered from eBay. I've been looking into getting these brushes for quite a while now because I always here Gabby from Velvetgh0st on YouTube rave about them. So I took the plunge and decided to order some.

 I ordered the 8 piece set in silver. The set comes with 4 face brushes and 4 eye brushes (the "bobbi brown" make up sponge was sent as a gift... weird?). They are all so so soft and apply make up beautifully. I have found some good uses for all of the brushes and they will be in the caption of each picture. They are such good value for money! I just checked on eBay to find you all the link and they have gone down in price since I paid for them! I believe I paid £11.24 or something silly, now they are only £9.58 so a real bargain if you are looking for some new make up brushes which are high quality but you don't want to pay an arm and a leg for them! You can get them here.

Angled face brush - I use this for foundation.

Tapered brush - I use this for contouring as it's not super stiff but stiff enough.
Rounded brush, similar to the real techniques expert face brush - Again I use this for my foundation.
Fluffier brush, it's like a stippling brush - I use this for powder or blush.
Angled brush and rounded brush - Excellent at applying eye shadow.
Tapered eye brush which I use for the lower lash line. Small stipple type brush which I use for concealer. 
 What are your favourite brushes?
