As my MAC brushes bought in my 20's started to go, Quo was new and I tried a couple of them. In large part because they were about half the cost of MAC brushes. This is going back a few years, and you have to understand that then there was very little available that was decent quality. either you bought cheap and got cheap, or you paid and got quality. I'm on my 2nd or 3rd set of Quo now, and because of Shopper's points haven't paid for one in years. Decent quality. Decent price, even better on sale or on points. And if you keep them cleaned they'll last you a few years. I've never gone back to MAC.
When I first started getting into makeup, these brushes were my first ones. I love how fairly inexpensive they are while still being of great quality. As most brands, there are some that are great and some that in my opinion are not as great as some less expensive brushes. For example the foundation brush I don't really like. I find it difficult to blend on the face. And the blush duo brush, it sheds a lot and I've had it for quite some time. I really do like the eye shadow bushes a lot more than the face brushes. They are great quality and I definitely recommend them for both beginners and the everyday makeup girl.
Depending on the brush it's either a hit or miss. Majority of their brushes are great quality for the price specially when you buy them on sale. I own several of the brushes and the ones I really like are the following: Kabuki Brush, Presicion Foundation Kabuki Brush,bronzing powder brush,blush brush and the brushes from their professional line. The brushes are well-made and have soft and dense fibres.
I am, however, not impressed with the travel brush set, the crease brush, liner/brow brush, and the retractable powder/blush brush. They just didn't perform to my liking. Also, I would avoid the brush sets that come out during the holidays. Although cheaper, I find those are not at par in terms of quality with the individual brushes sold.
The first time I washed the brushes, a bit of dye did come off and some shedding did occur but that stops after a few more washes.
When buying these brushes, definitely inspect them when you're at the store to make sure it's made to your liking. I would recommended the brushes I mentioned liking above. They would be great brushes to add to your collection.
I'm been using this blush brush for many years now. It's soft and shed just a little. Overall, It's a nice brush.
They're actually a good quality for the price. Are particularly worth while when Shopper's has them at 40% off. I would never buy expensive brands now that I found the Quo ones. There's a good variety and quality is there. The main thing for me is that they don't lose their bristles. Good product!
For a low-cost brush, I always turn to Quo. They seem to hold their shape quite well, even after washing. And they cost only a fraction of the more expensive brushes (like MAC).
I have lots of Quo brushes, partly because where I live, we have few shopping options & Shoppers and Walmart are all we've got for beauty supplies. I like the selection of brushes a la carte in the store, although I find them a bit pricy. I always watch out for the 40% off deals on the Quo brushes in the flyer.
I like the eyeshadow, liner, contour, blending, concealer and foundation brushes a lot. I have had poor experiences with their blush, powder and retractable travelling brush however. I can't stand when a brush leaves bristles all over my face. No matter what, you can't get rid of the bristles! The retractable brush came apart, so I had to toss it.
Conclusion: I think any of the short bristle brushes are really good. Long bristle brushes, try the Body Shop.
I bought one of these, a retractable powder brush with a cover, which I needed for my bag. Got it during one of the Shoppers DM sales, for around $14, I believe.
It's pretty large for a retractable brush, very long handle, sturdily built out of aluminum, but I don't find the bristles very soft compared to my other brushes, many of which are from Coastal Scents and from Michael's craft store. You can get some great deals on very good brushes at Michael's! It's also on the too-large side for a brush to be tossing in my bag. Like having a wrench in my bag LOL It works, but I have other brushes which are far better, and which I paid a lot less for.
Haven't bought any more of these since, simply because they are not that great. Ok, but not great. Nothing to get excited over.
I have the blush brush and it works so well. It spreads smoothly and is very soft on my skin. I am so happy with the price I paid for it and it has lasted me for a while now. I plan on buying more Quo brushes soon because they're such great value. The only issue I have had with this brush is a tiny bit of shedding, but nothing I can't handle!
I have the liner brush, blush brush and the kabuki brush.
I love the liner brush. Love using it for my gel liner from Coastal Scents and I also use it for doing my brows as the brush is stiff and soft. I always forget to pick another one up during the 40% off days at Shoppers.
The blush brush is ok for me. It picks up the color pretty well and brush is dense but I wish it was a bit bigger.
Kabuki brush is a downer. Love that its a kabuki but mine sheds a lot and pretty stingy on my face after cleaning it several times.
