So anyway how has everyone been? Enjoying the holidays? Well I’m not, lol…moving during the holidays is not exactly my idea of fun nor is it a recipe for holiday cheer. But enough about me…and on to this review.
I’ve had these brushes for quite awhile now – since the summer to be exact I believe. Yes I’ve waited until now to do this review. For awhile they sat in their nice little brush roll just looking pretty. They were so pretty I didn’t want to use them. Buuut I guess in order to give an accurate review I had to use them at some point huh? Ok well let me just say that up until I purchased these brushes I had really only used MAC brushes with a few Sephora and other randoms thrown in. I like MAC brushes but sometimes the price just isn’t right (at least for my pocket that is lol). So when I heard through the blogosphere about these gorgeous little lovelies I had to get my hands on them. The best part, aside from the pink of course, was the price. 12 professional brushes for $50?! And from the reviews I read and watched they were worth the $50. Sooooo here is my take on them…
Ok like I said there are 12 brushes, included in the set are: (l to r)
-a large powder brush (I absolutely adore this brush)
-duo fibre brush (while I love this brush I must say I do love my Studio Tools brush a little better)
-angled contour brush-I use this for blush sometimes but I still find I reach for my MAC blush brush the most
-foundation brush-I tend to use this to put on my primer and when I use it for foundation it’s to get more coverage
-large shader brush-used to put color over the entire lid
-eye shading brush-this brush is very flat and dense so it makes it easy to really pack on the color, love this brush
-tapered blending brush-I use this to blend my crease or whatever else needs blending on my eye
-medium angled shading brush-can be used to apply highlight shade underneath the brow-I don’t use this brush too often though
-pencil brush-used for precise application of shadow to the crease, lower lash line or lash line
-concealer brush-I use this brush everyday to apply my concealer to my face (and then I use my ring finger to blend it in :0 lol)
-small angled brush-this can be used for gel liner, I tend to use this brush to define my brows with concealer underneath if that makes any sense
-eye liner brush-I really don’t use this brush too often either lol but if I did I would use it for making a shadow into a liner
So my final take:
♥Affordable-12 brushes for $50? awesome in my book…and you get a brush roll which is great for travel!
♥Good quality brushes for the price
♥ It’s pink and I realize that may not be everyone’s favorite color, lol
♥ at the time I purchased they seemed to be out of stock a lot which was just a minor annoyance =]
Would I repurchase? Yes I would
Have YOU tried these brushes and if you have what is your opinion of them? I would love to hear!
