I'm a newbie when it comes to brushes so I was looking for a great, inexpensive starter kit that wasn't some free gift or a drug store brand so I took a chance and ordered these mostly because I wanted the foundation and contour brushes.
I was a little hesitant to order but I'm glad I did. The brushes have nice, mid-weight pearl handles and a few come with plastic covers for extra protection. The bristles are extremely soft and feel high quality.
So far I have used the powder, contour and foundation brushes with great results - my face looks smoother and more polished.
I do not use eyeshadow so I haven't tried half of the rest of the brushes but I will be testing out the liner brush to see how it works - it looks thin, great for a cat eye.
I've been looking for an affordable set of brushes to replace my worn out ones and this one did the trick -- the softness of the brushes exceeds expectations and the cute little container looks great on my vanity. Great deal.
Great brushes, but...
I've been trying to find a reasonably priced set of travel brushes that don't fall apart. I was immediately drawn to the the sturdy case that allows all brushes to stand up while on a flat surface, so didn't read many other reviews prior to purchase.
So far, I am happy with my purchase. The bristles are soft yet sturdy & hold as much product as needed. I like the weight of the handles, which helps with application. Certainly not flimsy at all.
I do wish the handles were labeled by type of intended use. I only recently started using a variety of brushes in my makeup routine, so need all the help I can get! The cardboard box has a description of all the brushes so I have had to cut the back out & save it with the brushes. Still, it's a pain to look at picture & have to dig through brushes & match the type!
A nice variety of brushes
With the variety of brushes, you will no doubt find the right brush for your makeup/touch-up needs. I wish the stems of the brushes mentioned what each are special for because I'm pretty sure I'm using the wrong ones to blend, wrong ones for liner but it gets the job done and my makeup looks light and natural.
I bought these because I needed new make-up brushes. They are of a good quality and very good deal at this price. Some of the brush heads were a bit smaller when I received them than I thought based on the pictures, but overall I'm happy with this purchase. It would be even better if each brush had on the handle the type of brush (that information is only on the box).
