These brushes are lovely! Beautiful, well made and with a ready-travel case! This particular Make-Up set includes 11 different brushes, nestled inside a leather like roll up carry/travel case with tie closure.
The carrying case has the feel of a soft leather and has secure stitching through out the whole case. From the edges to each individual pocket the brushes fit into. The brushes fit nice and secure, but not so secure that you have trouble pulling them in and out. The color is black with a sheen to it. Each brush was individually wrapped and tucked inside the carry case. Some of the bigger and wider brushes also came with an additional brush cover with a thicker type plastic that I assume is meant to be used when the brushes are not in use. I love this added protection.
The brush handles are ergonomic handles, not plastic or hollow metal The metal band that holds the brush fibers in place, is a solid piece of metal, crimped to hold the fibers in place. There is no seam on the metal that you have to worry about popping up or bending over or falling apart. These are a combination of synthetic and real hair brushes. Considering that real hair brushes are expensive to get these in this kit is a steal!
The 11pc Brushes Include:
- Large Powder Brush
- Blush Brush
- Foundation Brush
- Angled contour brush
- Dual fiber Stippling brush
- Shadow Brush
- Crease Brush
- Blending Brush
- Smudge brush
- Thin Liner Brush
- Oblique eyebrow Brush
These brushes are terrific. I wanted something that was high quality, the right mix, and offered a way to keep them neat and clean. (My old brushes got thrown in my makeup bag…not a good way to treat them.) In this kit, there is a brush for every purpose I need.
The Stippling brush is perfect for those of you who love a full coverage look to your foundation. The large flat head is specifically made for the foundation to be stippled onto the face. This technique assures there are no streaks in the foundation, resulting in a flawless look to the skin.
The Shadow and crease brushes are great for feathering out color to create a smokey eye, or blending out the crease. The bristles are stiff, making it easy to move the eye shadow where you want it. They’re also perfect for precision shading on the lid, in the crease of the eye, or along the lash line. These brushes can also be used for smudging liner along the lash line, or darkening the outer-v for a dramatic look
These are not cheap brushes and it is clear a lot of thought and effort went into these brushes to make them the best they possibly could be. These are professional make up brushes and no matter what brushes you have owned before, whether drug store or MAC, Sigma, Bobbi Brown, you will be impressed with these brushes. The only difference is with these you are not paying the exorbitant amount for a brand name. Guaranteed. Highly recommended.
