Since these have been floating around the internet for a while (yes, I know I am waaay behind the times on these), I finally decided to order a set. I opted for a cheaper option from Amazon and figured that if I loved them, I would invest in a higher quality set. I went with a combo of the highest ranked slash most affordable ones I could fine and settled on these. I was most intrigued by the texture, until you feel them, it’s hard to believe how soft they actually are. While I’m still working on my makeup application, they’re pretty easy to use.
I will say that because they’re so dense, it’s hard to tell how much pressure you’re applying when putting on your face (as I like to call it). My main negatives are that they end up absorbing a bit more of the product than I’d like. While they do make applying the makeup easy, it does take a few applications using the brush to really build up each layer depending on your coverage preference.
I would also like to note that I didn’t find the sizes of all six brushes to be the most useful. This is to be expected from a $9 purchase but is still something to note. The largest three were traditional foundation, bronzer, blush, concealer, etc. sized while the smallest two were harder to decide what to do with. Although I’m sure I will find a use for them.
As an ironic side note, T got the same brand for her sister for Christmas and let us know that they’ve held up with very little fall out from the bristles.
On a more positive note, they were easy to clean, no bristles have failed out, and they arrived in perfect condition. The makeup application is as flawless as any other foundation brush but, nothing beats a beauty blender. If you’re looking to try oval brushes out without breaking the bank, I would stick to Amazon, Ulta, or another beauty supplier.
