Like many I first heard of Louise Young through watching Pixiwoo tutorials on youtube, where they use her brushes often. The one that stood out to me was the LY38 - Tapered shadow brush, as I thought it might be a replacement for my MAC 266 (great application of colour, however so scratchy and uncomfortable that I rarely use it). The LY38 cost £16 which I think is very competitive pricing compared to a lot of my brushes. The brush head shape is similar to the MAC but you can see the difference in the tip below as the LY one is slighter longer and slimmer.
This is how the brushes look after they have been washed and dried, the LY is at the top:

The LY brush is a lot softer and I was extremely surprised how much pigment this can pick up from a shadow, it also blends the colour out nicely. There is no scratchiness whatsoever. I think its definitely worth having a look at and I will be picking up some more of their brushes.
I also got the New Essential Eye Palette which I will show you as soon as I have worked out how to wear it, if you haven’t seen the picture on the site already it contains a terracotta shade which is not quite working for me (http://www.louiseyoungcosmetics.com/makeup.php).
My Husband bought these for me from the Louise Young site (http://www.louiseyoungcosmetics.com/index.php), the delivery was really quick and the postage quite cheap (£2.99).
