Born Pretty Store Brush Set Review

Born Pretty Store recently reached out to me wanting to send a few products for me to review! One of the items I chose was this 7 piece brush set*. To be honest, when I received it in the mail I thought the brushes seemed really cheap and not the best quality, but I gave them all a try anyway and I was pleasantly surprised! This brush set comes with a blush brush, medium flat brush, small flat brush, lip brush, angled liner/eyebrow brush, a sponge tip applicator, and a lash/brow comb. All of the brushes have very soft synthetic bristles. When testing this brushes I didn't experience any shedding. 

I used the blush brush to apply powder blush and highlight, and it could also be used for bronzer, contouring, or other powder or cream face products! I found the small and medium flat brushes to work well with powder eye shadows, but I especially loved them with my Colourpop Super Shock cream shadows! From now on these will be go-to brushes for me for cream shadows. The lip brush worked well to smooth out and even the lip line when applying lipstick, so I was pleased with that. I used the angled brush to do my eyebrows with the Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade, and though it worked well I found it to be a bit too small for my liking. I might try it with gel liner though! I did not test the sponge tip applicator or the lash/brow comb as those are not the types of brushes I typically use, though they would work for some people I'm sure, I personally will not likely use those two.

Overall I was pleased with the quality of these brushes! They also came in a lilac brush roll, though I found it to be quite cheap looking and feeling. If you're in the market for some new brushes but don't want to spend a lot of money, you might want to check these out! If you'd like to try this brush set out, or anything else from Born Pretty Store, you can get 10% off your order with the code TCH10.
