Bare Essentials Makeup Brushes Review

by Deepthi N on December 21, 2012 · 26 comments


Hello everyone. This is my first review in IMBB and I am super excited about this. Thanks for IMBB team who gave me a chance to write. So today I am writing about one of my recent purchases, “Bare Essentials” makeup brushes kit. I have seen that few of our friends have written about these in shopping haul but no one reviewed. So this is how it looks.

It consists of total 7 brushes and each one’s use has been mentioned behind the label. I came across this while passing through some cosmetics section in a mall.

Price: I bought it for Rs.290/-

My experience:
This is my first brush kit. I have been learning abcs of makeup just from past few days so I decided to buy some basic kit. I was happy to know this kit is from bare essentials and so I gladly bought it. I loved the blush brush and it was the first brush I used from the kit. It was so soft and the bristles were of a very good quality. ext one which impressed me in this kit was the Brow and lash comb. I felt it was good as I never used any before. The eye shadow brush was so soft and it was sturdy then the ones provided with eye shadows. Then the mascara brush it was ok but it has a very harsh bristles which was not expected. The foundation brush did a fair job too . The other 2 brushes failed to impress me. They both have a same problem. They have very soft bristles (over soft I must say) due to which they could not do their job well. 🙁

1) Good to begin with for a fresher like me.
2) Quality is good.
3) Bristles do not shed even after washing.

1) Bristles are too hard for few brushes.
2) Slanted and smudger brush have very soft bristles. So they do not do their job perfectly.

I would this kit a 3/5 rating because of the above said cons.

Please give your valuable comments friends so that I can improve and do better. 🙂 Have a great day. Bye 🙂

this was my first ever brush kit and it was really not impressed with it . except the lash / mascara brush I threw all of them away. 🙁 I wonder if they really tested them before launching. you know it’s fine for beginners but as you learn more and more of makeup, do invest in good brushes. you’d really know the difference. Welcome to IMBB :))

Thank rati 🙂
