I got this brush set in the same order with the 120 colours jelly matte palette. I am stupid because although I had read this post by Xristina I didn't choose the set she got which I knew was good. Silly me! But first things first. I've used all of them and washed them 2-3 times so that I can give you a real review. Shall we begin?
It came in this black leather-like brush case. When I opened it there was a plastic smell so I unrolled it and left it that way overnight. In the morning there was no noticeable smell. As you can see, every single brush had protective wrap around it.
The brushes are black and the silver company logo is printed on the handle. The handles are about 17cm long and look very professional.
Dimensions from the site: 25 x 18 x 5 cm and weight: 0.44kg
The actual product
Here you can see all the brushes in the set. Since some of the brushes are very similar I divided them in 4 categories and I'll write my opinion on each category instead of every single brush.
A small and a large fan brush, a powder brush, a blush brush and an angled blush brush. These are not soft. They lose hairs when I use them, the lose dye when I wash them and they don't blend in the products easily. I'm not happy with them.
Large eye brushes
Regular and angled, large eye brushes. These are made from different hair type than the brushes in the previous category, as you can see. They are very dense. They are good for cream products like concealers and cream eyeshadows. They don't work well with powder products. Impossible to blend regular eyeshadows with these brushes, I tried. So I'd say the brushes in this category are ok.
Small eye and lip brushes
These brushes can be used for eyes and lips. Small or big, narrow or wide, flat top or angled, you can find the brush you want here. Same hair type, good for cream eyeshadows, gel eyeliners, lipsticks and lipglosses. Not good for powder products. I like the fact that I can find really small brushes to apply my gel eyeliner as close to the lashes as possible but there are too many brushes in this category. So this is another just ok category.
Pros+ many brushes
+ nice brush case, easy for traveling
+ low price
- they are not soft
- some of them lose hairs and dye
- no brush for regular eyeshadow, no eye blending brush (I was disappointed because of that)
* Shipping to Greece took about 20 days (including weekends).
* The customer service was great, they replied very fast.
* A minor problem I had with this order was that the website is sooo slow!
I do not recomend this particular brush set but I'd suggest you look at the website because there are other, better quality brush sets for a few more money (or less brushes). Take a look at Xristina's post, I think she is happy with her set.
