I had heard good things about these brushes through blogs and reviews but wasn't that interested in purchasing as they are so expensive in Australia and I already have a massive brush collection.
When I saw them on iHerb for $17.99 each I couldn't believe the price difference and thought I would give them a go.
The Base/Flawless Core Collection RRP in Australia is $44.99 - RRP iHerb is $17.99.
- contour brush
- foundation brush
- detailer brush
- buffing brush
Your Eyes/Enhanced Starter Set RRP in Australia is $39.99 - RRP iHerb is $17.99.
- deluxe crease brush
- base shadow brush
- accent brush
- eyeliner brush
- brow brush
The first thing I liked when I received this brushes was the sturdy case which doubles up as a stand just by flipping the wallet over and pulling on the toggle.
Professional looking brushes, aluminium colour coded handles in bronze (face) and purple (eyes).
The taklon brushes are soft but what I really like is that they are workable because of the dense bristles. There is nothing worse than weak wishy-washy brushes.
Every single brush in these two collections is useable. The only thing I would add in the base collection is a larger foundation brush, this one is too small for all over application.
In the face collection I would add a smaller base eye shadow brush and crease brush. I found the ones in the kit to be too big and fluffy, GREAT for all over eye shadow application not so good for defined separate colours.
I really like these brushes, usually in collections you will find one or two brushes you will reach for every time but I have found that I pretty much use all of these brushes when applying my makeup. Good brushes don't have to cost the earth and I would compare these brushes favourably with more expensive brands that I own.
There are individual brushes available too if you only want a couple of brushes but the collections are very good value and a great introduction.
