$175 Brush Set Review. Is It Worth It?Monday, July 01, 2013
How have you all been? For some of you guys it might be winter time but here my summer has just started. I've been incredibly lazy and pretty much abandoned my blog and Youtube channel. Blame Animal Crossing New Leaf. If any of you guys have it, let's exchange friend codes!
Anyways, I was contacted by ePacificMall to review their brush set. I'm supposed to make a video (which I will) but some of you guys don't watch my videos so I'm doing this post. This brush set is a whopping $175!! I usually would never splurge that much for makeup brushes even though I am a makeup brush fanatic. I love brushes more than I actually love makeup.
So the question is, is it worth the $175?
Hey, guess what? I found the actual brushes from the pictures online for $25! You're saving $150 if you buy on ebay. WTF!!!
Now how do the actual brushes work? Let's see.
The other two brushes are pathetic. I have no idea why these were included. They're supposed to be your blush brush and contour brush, I believe but they are so thin it's kind of useless. I do like brushes that don't apply blush on too much. I like a light blush application but it's just sooo thin that it's kind of annoying to use.
Okay, maybe I kinda went overboard. These are usable for eyeshadows, like the highly pigmented ones but there will be fallout with a flat brush like these ones. I think these would be great to apply glitter and pigments on your eyelids as well.
As for concealing, these do as good as a job as other concealer brushes I've tried. The only thing is, why do I need eight of these when they're pretty much the exact same? Being 2mm shorter isn't gonna be a huge difference.
I decided to use this for concealer. Odd right? It actually does a decent job around the nose area. Blending? Not so much but that's fine with me.
The SUPER thin eyeliner brush second to the left is REALLY flimsy. I usually don't use an eyeliner brush that thin for my liner so I was thinking about a nail brush but it's just WAY too flimsy.
That brush/comb is awful. I use those a lot for my eyebrows but the brush sheds like no other. It's so annoying! And it's too scratchy and stiff that it messes up my eyebrows. It pretty much removes all the eyebrow powder work I did.
- Fan brushes are good for lightly powdering
- Sponge tip applicators are good quality!
- Comes with a lot of concealer brushes (just wait for my Not so likes..)
- Some of the eyeliner brushes are good
Not so likes:
- WTF IS UP WITH THE PRICE???
- TOO MANY CONCEALER BRUSHES LIKE WHAT
- Sheds like your mom in the summer
- ELF Studio brushes are better quality
- Comes with no actual eyeshadow brush
- No foundation brush!
- Some brushes are way too stiff
- Some brushes are way too thin
- This whole brush set is a mess
- Save your money
- Buy shoes instead of this
Whew! That was a pretty long negative review! I would say more negative things but I'm keeping this PG. I haven't done a lot of negative reviews in a while but when I do have negative things to say, I love it. Hope you guys enjoyed this blog post. Save your money. Please.
Thanks for ePacificMall for sending me this brush set. Sorry about saying so many bad stuff about it but I have to say what I have to say. I speak the truth.
