Coastal Scents Brush Set
I was extremely cautious about purchasing inexpensive brush sets after my first set of make-up brushes were a huge letdown. I have done a LOT of research, discussed myself out and in of purchasing this set but I eventually bit the bullet when it went on sale.
True, it was a dying 12 day delay as I prayed for them to arrive before I headed off to the United States on exchange (I am from Ireland). Nevertheless , once they eventually did, I could not have been more delighted. The face brushes are compact and slick. The big domed brush (2) has really replaced my Actual Techniques stippling brush.
There's some first shedding so with all the eye brushes as the critical reviews could have mentioned. Following the very first wash they may be perfect.
In sets like these, naturally, there are constantly brushes you can do without/replace for others. I don't use my doe foot brush, which is formed a little crookedly. Where actually one would suffice in addition, you get three eyeliner brushes of varying sizes.
Another scam is the fact that after considerable use the handle on a few the face brushes came free. Considering the cost, I am content to make use of superglue provided that the brushes work nicely although this might be a deal breaker for some.
Overall, it is still a fab set contemplating that which you pay for this. The range itself is adequate for beginners but can also be an excellent addition to any make-up brush set.
Despite any short comings I listed previously (they're pretty small ones within my eyes) you aren't likely to get a much better set for the purchase price. I've already recommended them to friends and I am going to repurchase them before purchasing in the higher priced brands, when they get lost/ damaged.
Clearly not all the brushes can compare to higher priced brands, but the angle brush (5) doesn't shed and mixes better than my Mac 109.
I generally use this to eliminate any fallout. In addition it's perfect to apply highlighter to the cheekbones, nose, chin and Cupid's bow.
I take advantage of this to buffer my (liquid) base into my skin. This brush does not cause any base that is streaking and combinations into the skin impeccably.
I take advantage of this to mix out any liquid highlighter concealer and eye shadow base.
Level buffer brush - This can be ideal for applying powder that is pressed. It is also excellent for mixing any unpleasant contouring out or rouge.
Brush that is angle - Unfortunately, a little has frayed since I washed it. However, it is not worse than my Mac 109.
So I've passed this on to my sister, I am not a fan of the brush.
Since this brush is fine and stiff I prefer using it to apply lotion eye shadow or a foundation.
Big shadow brush - Great for applying colour around the lid.
Perfect to combine transition colours.
Great for applying powerful colour to the outer corner or mix eyeliner out.
I take advantage of this gorgeously soft brush to mix crease colour out.
Shadow brush that is medium - Great for applying limelight protections to the middle of the eyelid.
Shadow brush that is detail - Great for adding a highlighter to the interior corner of the eyelid.
I use this to apply lipstick as instructed.
Element Concealer - I take advantage of this to apply concealer on my lower eyelid below my eyeliner to stop it bleeding.
Do not attempt to apply any colour as it applies. Not bad for mixing protections in the outer corner outside.
Can be utilized for the foreheads but I prefer using shadow to be applied by it .
A bit tough but fine for softening gel lining that is unpleasant.
21 & 22 Lining/Eyebrow brushes - I take advantage of the biggest to complete the lowest as well as my eyebrows as to apply gel eyeliner.
