Review: Sandra Brush Set from Beauty Cosmetics

Hi there!!

I for one, love to look all dolled up and pretty! But sometimes, it is nice to look fresh and simple yet presentable, right? Here is my video on how to achieve a simple and fresh day makeup look.


In this video, I used a brush set from Beauty Cosmetics.I know right? This is my third set and I just love love them! Here is my full review, I hope you find it useful!! :)




Brush Set Name: Sandra Set
Price: P1,200
Brought from: Beauty Cosmetics
Brushes: 10
Color: Red and black handle
Hair: Natural and one synthetic

Here are close up pictures of each brushes. I will try to describe each and tell you what I think about them. :)

1. Tapered Fluffy bronzing/blush  brush
This brush is great for applying blush. It is very soft and fluffy! This is my sister's fave brush. It does not pick up a lot of the product but  blends is able to blend it well on the cheeks. It is also a great bronzing brush because it distributes the product evenly especially on the forehead and jawline.

2. Dual Fiber Stippling Brush

I use this brush to apply my foundation if I want a sheer finish. I also use this to blend cream blushes.

3. Round Large Powder Brush
I use this brush to set my foundation with a powder. It is big enough to cover large areas of my face which makes the job faster. 

4. Foundation Brush
Looks familiar? This is the reason why I bought this brush set. This looks like something from Real Techniques. I can say that I am not disappointed because it does the job really well. It makes foundation application easier and faster. 

5. Flat Contour Brush
Oh my! I am in love with this brush! This is great for contouring the sides of the nose and the hallows of the cheeks as well. 


6. Blending Brush

I use this brush to blend the edges of my eyeshadow. It is able blend well.

7. Fluffy Blending Brush
I use this brush to blend my crease area. The bristles are long and soft so it is perfect for applying/blending eyeshadows in the crease area.

8. Dense Blending Brush

I am not really sure if that it how it is called but I noticed that this brush is much more dense and I prefer so it is not good for blending eyeshadows. I prefer using this to blend my concealer and it is perfect!

9. Stiff Slanted Brush

I use this brush to fill in my eyebrows and apply eyeliner.

10. Lip Brush/Concealer Brush

I am not sure if this is a concealer brush or a lip brush, but I use this to apply lipcolor.

OVERALL THOUGHTS:

What I like:

              • Affordable
              • Nice, sturdy handles
              • does not shed
              • very soft 
              • easy to clean
              • dries fast
Some Issues:
              • Did not come with a bag/brush holder
              • the set did not come with a flat shader brush or an eyeshadow brush

All in all, I really recommend this brush set. I mean for price, you get good quality brushes. I do hope they do come in a bag/pouch next time and maybe they can add flat eyeshadow brush maybe?

Thank you for reading my post! What is your favorite brush set/brand? Please do share in the comments below!

Take care!
