20 Piece Makeup Brush Kit Review

20 Piece Makeup Brush Kit Review

My 20 – piece makeup brush kit & my experience of buyincoins.com site.

I am so exited today as I am going to talk about my priced possession which is my 20 set makeup brush kit, I bought from buyincoins.com

makeup brush kit

Well to begin with, I love makeup & like to collect a lot of makeup stuff too but I am still in a learning process to use all of it. I found IMBB quite useful in gaining my knowledge on makeup & the right technique to use it. I am really thankful to the whole IMBB gang and other beauty blogs around for the superb makeup tutorials which have helped me learn the right technique of making best possible use of my cosmetics.

Learning also requires practising. I sometimes used to try some of the eye makeup things myself but lack of proper makeup brushes always stood as a wall between me and my learning. Thus began my search for a right makeup brush kit which should be complete in all respects and affordable too. Spending thousands on getting branded makeup brushes was never a good idea for a beginner like me. So after considering 5-6 online options for buying a good set, I ended up buying this 20 Pcs Eyebrow Lip Eye shadow Fashion Makeup Brush Set.

makeup brush kit

Price: 12.77$ + 1.90$(shipping) =14.67$, 670 INR

Features (acc. to website):

  • Brand New and High Quality.
  • Professional set of 20pcs make up brushes with case.
  • Made of high quality soft wool.
  • Easy to apply cosmetics on and very soft to your skin.
  • Suitable for professional use or casual personal use.
  • The Makeup Brush Set contains: Powder Brush, Shadow Brush, Fan Brush, Lipstick Brush, Eyeliner Brush, Eye Definer Brush, Eye Applicator Brush, Mascara Brush, Lash comb, Brow comb etc…

My word on the product:
I simply adore these brushes. First of all the packing is beautiful. It’s a beige coloured pouch with black and red checks and the 2 magnetic steel buttons. On unfolding it, you can find the 20 brushes placed individually in sections and covered in their own packing. A separate flap of the pouch even covers the top of the brushes. So once packed, the brushes are totally secured from dust/humidity.
Coming to the brushes, they are super soft to touch & feel. They are tall slender white coloured brushes that are easy to hold & use. The pack contains 4 face brushes- a Powder, a Fan, 1 Blush and 1 Angled Contour brush. Then comes 2 large and 2 small eye shadow applicator brushes and 1 medium angled brush to apply the eye shadow under your eyebrows or in the crease, 1 mascara & 1 brow/Lash comb brush. There are 3 lipstick brushes and a lip liner brush. Then there are 2 small Angled brushes that can be used to apply the gel liners. There is also a Pencil brush (actually sponge type) and two sponge tip applicators out of which 1 is huge 😛

Out of all the above, I have used the eye shadow brushes a lot for practising some eye makeup. And twice I used the face brushes. I find them very soft in texture & they pick up enough products which can be easily applied on the required area.
When I got the kit, it did have a peculiar smell which vanished automatically within 2 -3 days. Even the face brushes were shedding a few bristles so I was quite hesitant in cleaning them too but to my surprise, the brushes once cleaned didn’t even shed a single strand. :D. I used the baby shampoo to clean 6 eye brushes out of the whole lot. All of them didn’t shed bristles and were super soft once dry.

Good points of the Brush set

  • It is cheap.
  • Soft textured
  • One get all type of brushes in a single kit
  • Easy to hold & use.
  • Don’t shed bristles on cleaning.
  • Secure & sturdy packaging.

Cons of the Brush kit

  • Doesn’t have a foundation brush.
  • Missing a proper blending brush.
  • Packaging is not travel friendly as its too big to fit in your handbag but can be packed in suitcase though 😛

Rest I didn’t find any problem using the brush kit. It had really solved my problem of doing makeup. About recommending it, then Yes. It is a multipurpose brush kit which will help anyone to enjoy doing their makeup easily and with perfection.

My experience with the buyincoins.com : buyincoins.com has many such makeup brush set collections at reasonable prices. Actually I found this site selling all stuff at the least possible rates compared to other online sites. Even they provide free shipping to India.

I ordered this set on 9th Feb & I got it around 25th of Feb. The kit came securely packed in bubble wrap & was new & unused. Even this site puts up a snapshot of the parcel along with your order details once your parcel is ready.
Communication with their customers is again quick. I always got immediate replies to all my mails regarding enquiry related to the product, and the shipping & tracking of my parcel too. And as I used paypal to make the payment, I was sure that I can get my money back anytime I was dissatisfied with them but the need didn’t arise. So anyone who are planning to purchase a brush kit or any other makeup products can go ahead & visit this website. 🙂

Last comes few of my eye makeup practise pictures which I did using my makeup kit. Hope I fared well in my trials.

  12. I have seen lot of wonderful eye shadow palette on this site…Plannin to purchase one. Did any one tried their eye shadow paletee?…since they are non branded so i m doubtful about their quality..ny comments?

  13. hey hi i was wondering what extra charges does this buyincoins apply except the shipping..i meAN once when you ordered you set then after dispatching or when the item got delivered at your palce did you had to make ant extra delivery charge.because i am thinking to buy something from there and except the shipping charge i wanted to know do we have to pay addiTIONAL CHARGE to receive it in hand from the courier guy…hope you reply soon..bye thanku

  14. !!!!! Avoid at all cost !!!!! BUYINCOINS !!!!

    If you wanna wait your purchase for a month..then it would be your choice


    “It takes 14-21 working days to arrive. Sometimes it will be 5-10 days delay because of customs and flights. If you can not get in one month since you buy, please contact us.”

    For a week its been paid, nothing proceeded. After 2weeks still hasnt left HK…and they tell you to wait for a month…


  15. Yippieeeee :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: I ordered the samekit on 10-11-2011 received it today on 26-11-2011…….
