My Experience with Sephora Collection I’m Not Perfect, But My Eyeliner Is Brush Canister:
I was tempted to pick this set not only because of the compact, travel-friendly side of it but also because of the way the brushes have sparkles along with a color to them. It is not any boring eye kit; also the name is as interesting and intriguing as the packaging. This set comes in four colors namely black, turquoise, pink and purple but I chose pink although I had a tough time choosing it, having to leaving purple behind. When I had looked it up online, I had planned on picking turquoise but black and turquoise sets were all gone and therefore I told myself that I have enough products and outfits in the above two colors plus I have a cute transparent bag in pink with flowers so I thought why not ‘Pink’.
Packaging: The cylindrical pink-colored metal tube has five brushes. The brush stems are filled with sparking glittery transparent specks of pink which are fun to look at while equally motivating you to get creative even with your basic looks! This affordable set is a ‘must have’ one for college goers and teens which can add color to their vanity. The sleek and portable tube like case where you should be ideally storing the brushes has ‘I’m Not Perfect But My Eyeliner Is’ in bold imprinted; it will look so cute on your dresser. I am more than happy each time I look at it.
Features and usage: Now let us move onto the details of the individual features and usage of each brush. I am going into the description of each brush from L-R starting with angled shadow brush.
Angled shadow brush: This angled shadow brush makes application of eye shadow simple especially for beginners. The contoured shape of the brush can also help you to work with the brush around the corners neatly with powdered eye shadows. Use this brush ideally to work on your eye socket when blending using two to three shadows for a neat basic eye makeup. This brush comes handy as it also helps in smudging. Incase you are in a hurry, this brush alone can do without the help of a smudge brush.
Cream shadow brush: The cream shadow brush is not too big or small in size. It is mediocre and has densely packed fine bristles that will help you get the desired effect while using this with your cream shadows for the eyes. This easy to handle flat and rounded brush can also be used to apply cheek blushes but you cannot expect it to be perfect as it is designed for the eyes while on the other hand you can use this brush to blend your cream-based products to get a medium and flawless coverage. It has worked fine for me in both ways only that it gave better results on an eye look I created.
Smudge brush: The smudge brush can be used with eye shadows and eyeliners. It all depends on what look you want to create. This brush is neither small nor large. It is just enough to create a smudged look while it also equally easily works with powder eye shadows. So for easy use and maintenance, I would recommend you to use the same brush when using a minimal of two to three colors with a basic black.
Angled liner brush: I use this small angled liner brush to gently blend shadow in the corners or all over the crease; else I use it to create simple, neat strokes on the lower lash line. You can expect a decent amount of precision and neatly done strokes with this brush. The bristles are not too soft or fluffy so while working on such a sensitive area like the lash line, be extra careful. This brush can also be used to fill in the brows and the fine angled corner can also used to draw short and swift strokes or fill in when you want to use just your colored liners or cream shadows.
Small shadow brush: This small shadow brush can also used with your fine liquid eye liner if you have mastered the art of eye makeup to get neat strokes or precise winged lines. This brush’s fine tip can also used to blend colored pencils especially when you are trying to create simple colored looks using black as a base along with a colored pencil be it in blue, green, jade or anything else. Tap the brush on your powdered eye shadow and dab excess and this can help you add more color.
If you are taking your baby steps into the makeup world, buy this kit along with a nice kabuki brush or a basic blush brush; this would suffice to complete your set.
