Essential Cosmetic Tool Kit:
It includes 5 cosmetic brushes and one foundation sponge.
Let me just go through each of the brushes.
1. Blusher Brush:
For application of powder blusher.
The fluffy and soft bristles pick just the right amount of blush making the task of blush application really easy for a novice like me. The bristles are really soft and don’t shed a bit. I have washed them quite a few times, but it is still in good condition except for some 4/5 hairs that have changed their path and have gone wayward now :P. Please refer to the picture below to see what I mean.
2. Eyeshadow Brush:
For defining, blending and shading your eyeshadow powder.
This is my favorite of the lot, does its job perfectly. The bristles are both soft and stiff. I hope that makes some sense :P. The tip is really nice for applying shadow on the lower lash line as well. :haanji: This too passes the wash test with no shedding. :thumbsup:
3. Eyeshadow Applicator:
For defining and contouring your eyeshadow powder. Can be used dry or damp.
Hmmm, what should I say about this. This is the elder brother of the regular sponge applicator we get with the eyeshadow. Just a bit extra long and strong (in that order). I don’t use it much for the fear it might have the same fate as its junior versions. In plain words, “useless.” 😛
A closer look.
4. Lip Brush:
For precision, application of your favorite lip color or gloss.
This is again one of my favorites. It fills the lips so nicely. The tip is a little pointed which helps in lining the lips properly when you are going for a dark lipstick with a tendency to bleed. I love it so much that now I prefer to apply lipsticks with this brush only. It totally gives you the much-needed control. :haanji:
5. Eyebrow and Lash Groomer:
Blend eyebrow color and shape brows with the brush. Use the comb to separate eyelashes.
This is also one of the least-used brushes among the five. I can see that some people may like it more than me. I have not tried it, but have a feeling that it will work fine as an eyebrow color blender. I have really really dark eyebrows, so I don’t use any eyebrow filler/powder, but it comes handy when I need to shape those, which is very rare. As far as the comb goes, I don’t see any use for this too. Mascara does the job of separating the lashes quite nicely.
A closer look.
6. Foundation Sponge:
For smooth application of foundation.
It makes foundation application really easy. Blends the foundation evenly and effortlessly. It’s almost impossible to get a streaky application with this sponge. If you have used the Lakme 9 to 5 compact, then I can tell you its better than that as far as the application is concerned. Need to be a little less delicate though!!!! If you are someone who uses makeup base too often, then I am afraid, it will not last long and the amount it soaks up is also a matter of concern!!!!
Now for the size comparison, these are really small and handy. Fit for your travel bag and a makeup newbie like me. I like how they are easy to handle unlike the Vega brushes which are HUGE for me. One look at this and the first thought that came to my mind was “it’s a carpenter’s brush” (blame my profession 😛 )
3.9 out of 5.
The bristles are not harsh on your skin and easy to handle. How long they will last is a question to be asked though!!! For the price, I really can’t complain and some of these brushes are actually awesome. So, till the time I get my hands steady with makeup, I’ll keep on using this.
If you are still in the learning phase and would like to get a hang of the “brush thing,” then you can definitely give these a try, totally worth it!!!!
Will I Repurchase?
I think for now it’s doing a great job and when I am ready to experiment more, I will invest in some really good quality brushes.
