Antonym Cosmetics’ Travel Set adds the essential smoky eye tool—the blending brush—to the mix.

Birchbox Breakdown

When it comes to makeup brushes, it’s a jungle out there—how to make sense of the gajillion choices and focus on the essentials? Glad you asked. This set of eco-friendly brushes from French-born makeup artist Valerie Giraud includes everything you absolutely need—and nothing you don’t.

How it Works

Each vegan set includes 6 key tools made from sustainable bamboo and Taklon bristles: A blush brush, contour brush, medium eye shader, large pencil brush, small angled brush, and brow brush. The brushes come tidily packaged in a faux leather pouch.

How to Use

Apply color evenly with the medium eye shader, use the pencil brush for precision shading, and use the angled brush with powder or cream shadow to line the eye. The brow brush tames unruly brows and doubles as a mascara wand, while the contour brush has an angled head that’s ideal for shading and highlighting. Use the blush brush to add color to your cheeks.

Everything you need

These brushes are pretty much everything you need. They are soft and the leather pouch is really nice. They protect the brushes really well. I looked at a lot of brushes before purchasing these. I also had a brush set a long time before replacing them. These are high quality and I highly recommend them.

Great Brushes!
Purchased

Awesome product! Brushes are of great quality and are the perfect set for most of my make- up needs. Great value. I will likely be buying the rest of the Antonym brushes to complete my set!

Best Brushes

I didn't know what I was missing out on until I experienced this fabulous set of brushes. They are soft, they are precise, they cover, they are simply amazing. Best of the synthetic, best of the natural brushes, they are in a league of their own. This set includes a great assortment to get you started, I can't wait to add to my collection.

Perfect for travel and everyday
Purchased

The brushes are extremely soft and work well for applying shadow, blush and bronzer! Fave brushes are the pencil and angeled face.

Well made with soft bristles.
Purchased

I love this brush set. The brushes allow for a clean application of most powder makeups. If you keep them clean, I think they'll last a long time. I've had mine for several months and they haven't lost a single hair. My only complaints are: the case just gets in the way unless you actually take the time to wrap and tie it shut; the eyebrow/mascara brush tip bends easily.
