After my last post, I thought I’d review something in the bargain buy territory.
I went to Walmart about a month ago, originally with the intention of securing one HD Angled Blush Brush.
But then I saw this pack of four brushes that was a bit over double the price of the Angled Blush Brush alone (bad phrasing, sorry!). Basically, the ABB was around $5 by itself, and the pack of four was just under $11 and some cents.
I’m sure you know what happened after that…
The brushes are all wonderfully soft and fluffy with good-length handles (it bugs me when my brush handles are shorter than they should be). They feel like…baby raccoon tails (not that I go around feeling baby raccoon tails or anything. That would be creepy. And as you all know, I am not a creeper *wink wink*)
Honestly, they’re as soft as John Brown’s beard. Not that I’ve ever felt that either.
Now that I’ve sufficiently weirded everyone out, I’ll get on with the review.
left to right: Concealer Brush, Mini Face Brush, Foundation Brush, Angled Blush Brush (all from the Walmart HD collection).
When I work with cream concealer, I like to use my fingers. Liquid, however, is another story. For awhile, I had trouble finding the perfect brush to apply my MAC Pro Longwear Concealer. Well…MUAHAHAHA this answers all of my liquid concealer prayers. It’s dense, but fluffier than all the other concealer brushes I have, so it does an excellent job blending everything out, and creating natural coverage. Hip Hip Hooray!
The Mini Face Brush is fluffier still. It’s excellent for setting my undereye concealer, as it doesn’t feel scratchy against my skin, and is another blending pro. I used to think that the Skin Food Salmon Dark Circle Powder was an absolute failure of a product, but I realized that this unfair judgement stemmed from the fact that I wasn’t using a proper brush to apply it.
Like I’ve said before, I don’t wear foundation so I can’t really speak for the (I’m sure) miraculous properties of the Foundation Brush. Err…it’s soft. Very soft.
Ok, now the Angled Blush Brush a.k.a. the reason why I got this set in the first place. Prior to this purchase, I used the EcoTools Blush Brush to contour. It’s completely possible to use a blush brush to contour, but an angled brush works much better IMO. In a few short words, I’m in love with it. I’m in love with this entire set. They don’t shed, they’re super soft, and they all excel at their jobs for a mere $11-$12.
What have you got to lose, right?? Nothing! If this entire review was a little bit up in the air, it’s because I just ate a spectacular amount of hot pot, and I’m on a total food high right now. Jingle Bells!
