Iconic London review | First impression

So the first thing to say is...WOW.
When I first opened the packaging and saw the Iconic London brushes in real life I just fell head over heels in love. I've never tried the 'toothbrush' style makeup brushes before so I was excited to see if they made a difference to my makeup application. I also got the Pro Evo brushes, which are handheld brushes. I've never in my life seen a brush shaped like it, and I can't explain how ergonomically pleasing it is. LOVE!

Iconic London is 100% cruelty-free and has the leaping bunny of approval. 
All of their products are almost vegan as some of their makeup contain beeswax but all the brushes are vegan, yippee!

Each of the brushes are dense, yet super soft. In fact, they're velvety soft and make blending out liquid foundation a dream. The handles are also really sturdy and feel great quality, which not all 'toothbrush' style brushes do.The larger brush (001) makes foundation application really easy. I actually used the large brush to apply my moisturiser, and it buffs it into my skin so well, leaving a super soft, streak-free application.
There are 3 similar shaped oval brushes (002,003,004) that come in different sizes, so you can pick and choose which one suits your needs best. I would say these are great for blending concealers onto your face and under the eyes, also for blending out contour creams and blushers.
The slim brush (005) would work perfectly to blend out concealer around your brows and lips after shaping because you can get a really precise, defined line. It would also work well to apply contour/highlight onto your nose and create a smokey eyeliner look.

The small circular brush (006) is so cute. My first thoughts were that it makes the perfect brush size to dot a bit of highlight onto the tip of your nose, and the inner corners of your eyes. It would also work well to buff concealer into more hard to reach areas for more of a precision application.
I was already really familiar with the Iconic London liquid illuminator. If you haven't yet heard of it, it's been used by the likes of Jeffree Starr, Lottie Thomlinson and I can image.. a lot more celebrities! I can see why though, it's absolutely stunning.
It's really versatile and can be used as a stand-alone highlight, or a few drops added to your liquid foundation or moisturiser would give a stunning glow!
The pigmentation is absolutely incredible, it has a pearlescent glow which POPS. It also dries fairly quickly, doesn't feel tacky on the skin, and blends really beautifully.


I have been blown away with these products and highly recommend them to you guys!
