Good afternoon!  I have some cosmetic brushes to show you today that I received from BrushLove.com!

BrushLove.com is a website that carries a lot of beauty tools.  Basically if it’s used for beauty and is a brush type device – they pretty much have it!

I received 5 cosmetic brushes to review, all of which are 5 pretty basic “everyday use” type of brushes.

These are the brushes I received.  From top to bottom we have: Blush Brush, Foundation Brush, Powder Buffer Brush, Angled Contour Brush and the Concealer Brush.

All 5 brushes have a squared handle rather than round like I’m use to, so that did take a little adjustment.  Once I got past that though – I actually really did like using these brushes!  I’m a complete brush hoarder and own several brushes and I did find myself reaching for these more and more.  I have been using them for about a month now, and so far I haven’t experienced any shedding which is a big plus for me.  If the brush sheds right away – I’m done.  I will not waste anymore time on it.  All 5 of these are still happily sitting in my organizer though!

Blush Brush

I’m going to say this now and not really repeat it for the rest – my biggest issue with the brushes was that they were too soft bristle wise for my liking.  That’s not to say they are bad brushes, because I did like them, my preference in general is for slightly stiffer bristles.  BUT if you go for softer, more natural looks – this is a great set.  I used the Blush Brush for my natural days as well as for those darker blushes I generally can’t wear.  This was great at picking up just enough color to use heavy pigmented blushes without overdoing it.

Price: $17.98

Foundation Brush

This was my least used brush for the simple fact that I rarely wear any foundation.  But I did use different types I own just to give it a whirl.  It applied each foundation pretty easily without too many streaks.  There were a couple areas that I needed to go over with my fingers to smooth (not uncommon for me).

Price:  $14.98

Powder Buffer Brush

My favorite of the brushes!  I’m a powder gal.  This is really good for lighter days when you don’t need a lot of coverage or it you just want to sweep a little color in specific areas.  I received it with some flyaway bristles, but they never shed, they are just fanning off to the side.  It is a soft face brush, so for days I need a little more powder coverage I do have to go over the area twice.

Price: $18.98

Angled Contour Brush

Although this brush is for contouring I use it for blending and highlighting as well.  Not a brush I use a ton, but still a useful brush to have in your arsenal!

Price: $13.98

Concealer Brush

I wasn’t 100% thrilled with the concealer brush, but mainly because I prefer smaller, stiffer brushes when I apply concealer.  This one reminded me more of an eyeshadow type brush.  If covering a larger area for concealer, this works fairly well.  I don’t wear a ton of concealer and when I do it’s usually for small spots or undereye coverage.

Price: $11.98

Overall, as I stated before, these brushes aren’t too bad and I like having them in my collection.  The squared handles do take a little getting use to but are quite comfortable once you get the hang of them.  They work well but are softer than what I’m use to, and preference wise – I do like a stiffer brush.  I didn’t have any shedding with any of the brushes which is a HUGE plus!  Aside from the softness, I still find use for them and would consider buying more from this line in the future to try out, especially from the eye cosmetic brush section.  I generally do lighter eye looks, so I would be interested to see how they do for me.

They all applied products evenly and softly – which creates a more natural look.

Would I Purchase in the Future?: Yes

    I like how modern they look and that they don’t shed.
