Little Surprises: The Story of a Shipping Error Sending Me One of My New Favourite Things
I should start by saying that I did not, in fact, steal anyone’s mail. I ordered a second brush set from My Makeup Brush Set, a cute little 4 piece mini set for my backpack, and they sent me the wrong item. After e-mailing with them, we decided that I could keep the set they’d sent me since it was their fault and I kind of wanted to try this set at some point anyway. I reordered the mini set that I’d ordered in the first place and decided to give these new ones a try.
The 10 Piece Bamboo Brush Set are my favourite brushes in the history of forever. For the most part. As always, there’s one that I don’t really like already, but I have a bunch of new favourites in here and I really couldn’t be happier.
I’d like to introduce you to the most fabulous set of brushes that I’ve ever had the pleasure of using on my face.
The brushes come in this little canvas sack which, although not particularly attractive, makes them very nice for tossing into my bag for overnighters, which happen at least twice a week for me.
Don’t these look lush in the bag already? I had a good feeling about these when I looked at them.
The first one that I had to try was the flat buffer brush, as I use one of these daily for my BB Cream or my foundation. It is so soft on my face and it doesn’t eat my product, all of it gets distributed on my skin evenly and smoothly. I would say that this is my favourite brush in the set, but I want to save my favourite for last.
This powder brush is leaps and bounds better than the one that came in the Pink Glory set that I unboxed last month. It doesn’t smear my powder onto my face like the other one managed to. It’s really soft, like the buffer brush, and it gives me good coverage and a light application.
The blush brush is excellent, I can see exactly how much product is going to go on my face so I can prevent disaster before it occurs. Again, it’s really soft and fun to use!
This one is the crease blender. It’s clearly been used a few times judging by the colour. I’ve been on a purple kick lately. It does a really nice, efficient job and it’s really soft on my eyelid which I can’t say as adamantly about my other blending brush that I got at Sephora.
I haven’t tried the foundation brush but as I mentioned in my Pink Glory video, I don’t really use them much because I haven’t found one that I’ve really liked, I go for buffers more often. This one feels better than the Pink Glory foundation brush, so I think I’ll give it a go and see how it feels.
I got a really nice pencil brush here as well. I’ve got a big pencil brush, but it’s really not what I wanted, so I was really happy to see this. It’s great for hard-to-reach corners and detailing.
I got a fluffy angled brush for crease application. It does a really nice job, it doesn’t apply too much colour at a time, so I can build my crease colour gently.
I got a stiff angled brush as well which I think I can use for eyeliner and/or brows. I haven’t tried it yet, but it looks like it’ll do as good of a job as it’s Pink Glory counterpart.
I think this brush is supposed to be a concealer brush, but I don’t use it for that. I used it for eyeshadow application. It got the job done, but I woudl have preferred a fluffier eyeshadow brush in this set. “Why don’t you use it for concealer then?” Well, it’s because of my favourite brush in the set:
This fluffy blending brush is a god send. It’s too big for my eyeshadow by a long shot, but it’s perfect for concealer. I’ve never had a fluffy brush to do concealer with, so I’m super happy about having this.
The bristles are really dense and super soft, so I can blend out my undereye concealer, my nose concealer (I can do nose concealer again with this without it being a hassle), and blemish concealer in a matter of seconds. I get a smooth, seamless finish and great coverage. I’ve use it every day since I got it and I can’t wait to use it again tomorrow. I’m in love.
I would rate this brush set a perfect 10, despite the silly concealer brush that really doesn’t do much, and I would recommend that everyone invest in this. It’s $14.99+shipping right now, and it’s worth every penny!
I hope you guys liked this review!
