If you exist in desi-land, you’re aware of Nykaa. You’ve probably even shopped with them at some point. And if you know this much, you know that Nykaa have their own beauty brand – Nykaa Beauty. The brand includes a bunch of makeup – complexion, eyes, lips, and some tools.
Well, set aside the sponges, because Nykaa Beauty now have brushes. The brand dropped the news of the BlendPro launch a few days ago, and was officially put up for purchase on the 7th.
Right off the bat, the brushes look like the design is a rip-off of Real Techniques. Sans the rose gold colour, and the branding, they look like an exact replica of RT.
I wasn’t entirely convinced with the brushes, but I decided to give them a try regardless. Went ahead and picked up the eye shadow blending brushes since in my opinion, they’re the hardest to get right.
I received the brushes in my mail today. And well, um, I’m still unsure.
Why, you ask? Because of the bristles. They seem too short to get the blending job done. Just right for packing on colour. But as far as the blending bit is concerned, I don’t think they’ll be great. I’m yet to put them to the test – hopefully I’ll stand corrected.
Critique aside, let’s take a look at the BlendPro brushes by Nykaa Beauty.

The brush that will make your transition colour look flawless. Expertly crafted to allow you to blend your eye shadow into your creases. Also packs a punch and blends like a dream.
The thing I like about the brushes is the fact that they’ve engraved the brush name – instead of a number. That makes it really easy when using and for recommending.
The Nykaa BlendPro brushes are vegan and cruelty free. They’re available for sale on the Nykaa website. Pick them up individually, or as a set at a price point that I don’t understand. To sum up, try them at your own risk.
