These brushes rival the quality of my much more expensive Sephora brand ones for a quarter of the price. The kit comes with 12 different brushes ranging in stiffness, handle length and and use, as well as one beauty sponge and a carrying bag.
I was most excited to try the kabuki brush, as I've had my eye on one for a while but didn't want to spend upwards on $40 on just one brush. The stubby handle makes it easy to apply my foundation precisely and the stiff but soft bristles give a perfect finish that looks like I've been air brushed. I used the other two shorter handled brushes for my contouring. Again, having the shorter handles makes for a more precise finish.
The blush brush is not too big, giving the perfect glow on the skin. It holds the makeup well.
The eyeshadow brushes are fantastic also. They hold the makeup well and blend very easily. I've always watched videos and wonder how they get such a nice blend on their eyeshadows. Turns out I just needed better brushes.
The handles on all these brushes feel very nice. The bristles look like they are held in well and should be easy to clean without worrying about wrecking them.
Finally the beauty sponge. I have had the name brand and the cheap store brand style sponges, and this one works just as good as both. I like using it to apply concealer as it gives a clean thin finish and can easily be worked into the corners around my eyes and nose.
I love this kit and can't wait to do more looks with it.
I really needed a new set of make up brushes, and this set definitely fulfills my beauty regime requirements!
The storage bag itself is meh – it it poorly sewn without a proper hem (loose vs folded edge) – so I just put these brushes in my old make up brush case instead. I would definitely recommend storing them somewhere that is easier to access the brushes like a make up case or even a bathroom cup.
I definitely like the brushes more than make up for its case. They are nice and light, the bristles are stiff enough for easy application, and they are comfortable to use.
The bristles on the brushes stay in place and have not bent, shed, or moved into weird positions over the last few weeks. I especially love that the eye make up brush applies my eyeshadow without the powder going everywhere on my face – it stays on the brush or where I apply the shadow WITH the brush.
I have not had any issues with using a dark colour shadow one day, and a light colour the next – only the colour of that days shadow goes on my lids – this is not always the case with brushes.
I really have no idea what the gourd is used for – it’s pink and looks a little bit like a different kind of toy.
The eyeliner brush allows me to apply my MAC liner with ease and flawlessly.
The eyebrow brush is great for grooming both my own and husbands eyebrows, and I adore the different foundation application brushes!
Overall, I feel you are getting decent value for this brush set, and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys their make up!
