WHITE & GOLD

Soft, very soft synthetic bristles, a good start to this brush set. This looks like it could be a duo fibre collection due to the look of the bristles but they’re not. When it had arrived on my doorstep, I thought these would have the very cheap feel to them but I would say they’re above average, definitely sturdy. However I did find a crack on one of the brush handles. The set consists of tapered, round, flat, flat angled, angled brushes for the face and the smaller versions of each, which they call precision brushes suited for the face and eye area. There was a plastic, chemical odour but it disappears after it’s been washed, with no shedding.

I found the precision brushes a tad big for me to use on my eyes but they work great on the smaller, hard to reach places of the face. The precision tapered brush is my favourite out of the set. I use this to spot conceal and to reach the harder places. This would also be great to contour the nose. Any of the other precision brushes can be used for highlighting and many other purposes except for the eyes.

I find the handles of the larger brushes a tad chunky for my liking.  Each large brush is densely packed, making it easy to blend liquid, cream and powder based products. Not all brushes are suited for powder products. My face base looks great and didn’t irritate my skin. I’m not 100% completely sold on this set yet as I still reach for my other brushes but it’s still a great set to have.

This set would be better if there was a variety of brushes for each part of the face as I was disappointed that there wasn’t any suited for the eye. A leaflet was included, telling you which gives you guidance as to which brush is used for what as well as how to maintain it. These are currently £14.99 on Amazon which would be great for either a novice or experienced user as long as you don’t mind the “face only” uses. This would make a great present as they are presented beautifully in a gift box.

What’s your current favourite brush at the moment?

    This look super interesting. My brushes are mainly Mac, bobbi brown or smashbox. I may have to try them out!

    I have the 21 piece brush set from Coastal Scents and some Real Technique brushes, but these seem really pretty and soft and would definitely make a perfect gift.

    I have this set and think for the price it is great value for money, I like the small tapered brush for concealer in this set x

    The packaging of this looked familiar when I saw it and now I know it is a product the wife has. Personally,it sounds like a bargain when some brushes cost more than that whole set!

    Oh I really like these brushes from the packaging to how cute the brushes looks. I'll have to try them out I think. I'm currently love ZOEVA brushes but these are much cheaper.

    My favorite brushes at the moment are sigma but I'm actually looking to buy a whole new set of brushes as I've had mine for a long time and they are not a set. Xoxo Francy @ fancy-francy.com

    These brushes sure are pretty! I see what you mean about them being a bit large for eyeshadow use.

    Seems like the set is worth the price. I'm not much of a make-up fan, I use make up once in a blue moon only for dressy occasions. And I do have one such set that serves the purpose.
