OPI, Bourjois and Zoya
OPI, Illamasqua, Dior and Bourjois.
The Bourjois is gorgeous and worth the hassle of dealing with the huge brush. As you can see in the comparison pictures above, this Bourjois bottle (they have several different style bottles) is really really tall. I'm not sure if it'd fit in a Helmer but it certainly won't fit into my storage since OPI and China Glaze don't fit into mine. Looking at the comparison of the brushes, it's the thickest brush I've ever used. I should have put the Illasmasqa brush on the left but it was there to stabilize the other brushes :) Illamasqua's brush is my favorite to work with. OPI is a little thick but is okay. Dior's brush was the thickest one (and a little difficult for me to work with) but Bourjois is definitely the thickest in this line up. Again, not sure how ladies with small and thin nail beds will work with this brush.
I received the Essence and the Bourjois in a swap with Alex from Luxembourg. Essence can't be purchased in the UK but it can be purchased in a lot of other countries in Europe and at Ulta in the states. This Bourjois can be purchased in France at the moment and will be available in the UK in June or July (can't remember which) and will be able to be purchased at Boots and Superdrug and other stores.
