Beauty Cosmetics Limited Edition Deluxe Brush Set
I’ve always loved collecting… actually no, hoarding makeup brushes. I always get that happy feeling when I get new brushes. Because, hey, you can never have enough blending brushes, you know. But recently, I stopped. Especially when I got my Zoeva brush set. I felt that I already have everything that I needed. I have enough brushes to last me a lifetime. But a friend of mine, who is such an enabler (lol, love you :P) showed me Beauty Cosmetic’s new releases and my mind was like screaming, “I NEED THAT, I NEED THAT, THAT AND THAT AND THAT..”. Not that it’s my friend’s fault, I always have a soft spot for Beauty Cosmetics Brushes. It’s one of the best and affordable brushes we have on the market today and it’s one of my first brushes as well.
More than a ago, I posted a photo in my Instagram about these brushes and most of you were intrigued and asked me for a review. Well, here it is.
The entire set costs Php 1,350 and it comes with a black, faux-leather, zippered pouch with another zippered pocket inside. It’s very similar to the pouches that come with Zoeva’s brush kits to be quite honest. It also has Beauty Cosmetic’s logo embedded in one side. Each brushes are also packed in their own plastic, to retain their form. While the larger, face brushes have their own brush guards.
The entire set includes 13 brushes – Six face brushes and seven eye brushes. They don’t have proper brush names but rather numbers/codes printed on their handle (i.e. D24, D36, etc). Therefore, the names that are provided in this review are given according to how I use each of these brushes.
Let’s take a look at what’s included.
Face Brushes: D28, D26, D18, D36, D24 and D16
Eye Brushes: D10, D6, D12, D14, D8, D4 and D2
One of the questions I was asked about this set was how big were these brushes. I would say they’re more on the standard size. They’re taller/bigger than Real Techniques brushes, very similar to the height of their Chelsy Brush set (the 2013 version). It comes in a wooden handle with a matte finish and a silver ferule. It has a distinct weight into it but it’s not as heavy. Each of them are extremely soft and they don’t feel scratchy either when being used.
Let’s see them individually.
D28 – Powder Brush – I often use this to set my foundation. It’s really big and it’s densely packed but incredibly soft. I also use this to remove the excess powder when I’m baking.
D26 – Flat Top Kabuki/Foundation Brush – Compared to their former flat top kabuki brush, this is not as dense so you can definitely use this to sheer out the coverage of your foundation. This is actually my favorite among all of the face brushes because it’s extremely soft and it buffs out my foundation like a dream, leaving me that airbrush finish. It’s very easy to clean too.
D18 – Foundation Brush – Tbqh, I cannot give you an opinion about this because I haven’t used this one yet and I haven’t used this type of brush in years. #sorryboutit
D36 – Sculpting/Contouring Brush – What I love about this is that it’s densely packed but you can definitely blend your contour using this one. Most of the sculpting brushes I have are not that good when it comes to blending. Of course, I still use a different brush when it comes to blending my contour, just to save time, but what I’m saying is, you can definitely use this for blending your contour as well. It’s stiff enough to do some sculpting but soft as well so your contour wont look all muddy.
D24 – Angled Blush Brush – I use this for my blush but I have used these types of brushes before for contouring as well, due to it’s size. It’s very versatile.
D6 – Precision Round Top Kabuki Brush – I actually think this is an eye brush now that I’m typing this but to be honest, this is just too big for that purpose. I use this mainly to buff out my concealer and it works excellent. It’s very soft and it spreads the cream evenly without compromising the coverage, leaving me an airbrush finish as well. I honestly don’t think this would be fitting as an eye brush. But hey, to each her own
D10 – Large Shader Brush – I use this mainly to set my eyeshadow primer and sometimes to apply my lid color if I’m just going to use one color for my eye look. This is actually too big and too dense for my eyes so I use it mainly for those purposes.
D6 – Small Shader Brush – I like this one for precision. It’s small enough for it to work as a highlighter brush in my brow bone, it’s also a good brush if you want to apply two or more colors on your lid if you want to do smoky eyes. You can also use it to smudge your liner or blend your eyeshadow on your lash line.
D12 – Large Blending Brush – This is actually too big for my crease. I thought I can use this as my all-over blending brush but it’s just too large so I’m going to have to find a better use out of this one. However, if you’re into large fluffy blending brushes, then you might like this one.
D14 – Medium Blending Brush – This, I believe is just the right all-over blending brush for me. I also use this to apply transition shades for my crease too. It just has the right density, it’s not flimsy nor is it too stiff as well.
D8 – Small Blending Brush – I use this to blend the darker shades that I’ve applied on the outer V-shade of my eyes. I just wish the bristles were a bit longer, but I still like it.
D4 – Pencil Brush – I like that it’s just the right size to put some shadow on the outer V-area of my lids. I can also use this to smudge my liner.
D2 – Double Sided Angled liner/brow brush w/ spoolie – The angled liner/brow brush is really thin which is what I really like in these types of brushes nowadays. Especially now that pomades and brow gels are so in, this is excellent for mimicking brow hairs and outlining our brows. it’s also good for gel liners in case you need it. The spoolie is excellent too.
Those are all of the brushes that are included in this brush set. I have already washed this and spot cleaned it once and I didn’t notice any shedding. So far, I’m very satisfied with my purchase. I love that Beauty Cosmetics can come up with quality brushes and offer them in such affordable prizes. Sure, they may be times when I have encountered some shedding in some of their brushes before (not in this set), but with the prize that you’re paying, I’m still okay with it.
I guess the only con about this brush set is that it’s limited edition. It’s still available so if you’re thinking about getting your hands on it, then go get it. You won’t regret it, I promise. Plus, a little birdie told me that they’re coming up with more brushes soon.
