How to use this set? (official video):

PROS:

  • I love the brow brush because I can quickly colour my thick brows with that brush.
  • Accent brush is very good, especially for lower eyelids.
  • Base shadow brush can be characterised as all-purpose and can also be used as a crease brush.
  • Great case – easy to clean and you can easily move brushes in it.
  • Bristles don’t fall out at all, even after 8 months of continous use (in my case).
  • Deluxe crease brush is absolutely awesome for… concealer :) I just found out :)

CONS:

  • Eyeliner brush is very thick and messy – you can’t make thin, precise lines. You really can’t make any precise lines. This brush is a total mistake.
  • Brow brush can be too thick for thin eyebrows (it’s good for mine). You can try using his edge.
  • Crease brush is too big for most girls. I use it only for smudging the edges. I use base shadow brush for my crease.

Overview: A solid set, easy to take everywhere and easy to clean. But it depends on your eyes’ shape if you’ll like all the brushes. I have deep set eyes and droping eyelids so crease and liner brushes are too big for me.
