Hello there wonderful people of the internet. I’ve been meaning to get this post up because as a lot of you know I love my makeup brushes, especially the affordable and awesome ones. So of course I have to tell you about this set and I am going to stop myself from rambling on cause lets face it, I could do that all day.
Onwards and upwards!
Are the brushes within the set handy?: Yes! There aren’t any pointless brushes in this set, all of them are great, handy and work for all kinds of things.
The face brushes?: Four of the five face brushes are awesome for applying foundation. The tapered contour brush I personally use to set my under eye concealer. It’s good at blending out cream contour but not for applying it because it’s personally too large to get a precise contour.
The eye brushes: technically these brushes are for the face, like for nose contouring etc. They make good eye shadow brushes due to their size so that is what I use them for.
Do the brushes do a good job: The brushes do a great job and the hair is synthetic which makes blending capability 10 x better!
Look and Shape of the brush?: These brushes have a similar look to the sigma brushes. A lot of drugstore make up brushes are being designed to be dupes for the sigma ones. I haven’t actually tried sigma brushes so I can’t make the comparison but I really love these brushes and the way they apply makeup.
What do I use each brush for?: I use the angled blending face brush, flat blending face brush and the angled contouring face brush to apply foundation. The round blending face brush I also use for foundation but it’s also lovely for applying highlighter. And the contouring face brush I use to set my under eye concealer. The smaller size brushes I use for eye shadow. I use the small tapered contouring face brush to apply inner corner highlight. And the rest of the blushes I use for the lid and crease.
Availability: This particular set is available off the Bh cosmetics site.
Pros: Affordable, considering most makeup brushes in store are like 20 bucks for just one. The set has all great brushes you will find a use for and they do a really good job.
Cons: Bh cosmetics does take kinda long to ship, only available on the bh cosmetics site (for Australians at least)
Rating: 8.5 / 10
Overall thoughts?: This is a really good brush set. I don’t usually gravitate towards brush sets as the typical ones I see only have a few good brushes and the rest are kind of useless BUT this was one of the first brush sets other than real techniques I picked up and I really love it, all the brushes are awesome.
Would I repurchase it?: I technically did, it’s not the bh cosmetics version but I got a pretty similar one of Oz sale that have 5 face brushes and 5 eye brushes. The set looks very very similar to this brush set.
That’s a wrap folks! Have any of you guys tried makeup brushes from bh cosmetics? They have come out with even more awesome sets; they definitely know how to do good sets. I also want to try out brushes from coastal scents but that’s for another day, I recently did another big purchase of makeup brushes so I probably should cool my jets on the makeup brush front. Any who … what makeup brushes are you guys loving? Tell me about them in the comments below! And I’ll see you guys in the next post.
