Makeup brush case and brush set

Makeup brush cases are ideal for travel and great for storing your brushes. The two halves of the case doubles as a brush holder that can sit atop any table for convenient access. I like these cases because sometimes my brushes get misshapen during travel and I needed a better way to transport them.

 I came across this brush case on Ebay for a great deal so thought I would share it with everyone.

This brush case I purchased cost $11.56 and the total with shipping was $17.55. It also came with a set of 12 “professional makeup brushes.”
Here is the full set of brushes

Colors:
The cases and brushes come in pink, dark purple, baby blue and teal/green. 

Shipping:
The company ships from Hong Kong but they ship internationally. Shipping time is dependent on where you live but I thought the shipping was quite fast. I was surprised that the cost of shipping from Hong Kong to Canada was so affordable. I placed my order on July 29th and I received an email the same night stating that my order had been shipped. I got my package on Aug 15th.

The brushes in the set are:
#134 Large powder/blush brush
#187 Duo Fibre brush
#190 Foundation brush
#168 Large angled countour brush
#275 Medium angled shading brush
#214 Short shader brush
#219 Pencil brush
#212 Flat definer brush
#266 Small angle brush
#231 Small shader brush
#209 Eye liner brush
#316 Lip brush
I really like the pencil brush #219 for contouring and applying eye shadow to my inner and outer eye area.

Face brushes

Brushes for the eyes and lips

Brush quality:
The quality of the brushes is rather good, they are soft and work well. I noticed only minimal shedding. A couple of the brushes had faded numbers on the handle.

Case quality:
The case could have been put together a tad better but it still looks cute and serves its purpose. When it arrived the case and brushes did smell strongly of fake leather from a factory but you can wash your brushes before you use them and air out the case or wipe it out with soap and water and it should be fine.

Satisfaction:
I recommend this case and brush set if you want an affordable set for travel. I liked how fast the company shipped. For me this set serves it purpose and is a nice addition to the collection of brushes I already own.

This would also be a great starter set for any of you who are just getting into makeup and want some affordable brushes to practice with.

    1. LOL that's funny. I am going to IMATS on the Saturday my plan is to try to go early so I can go before everything gets sold out, try to buy what I want, have some time to talk to the vendors before the crowds get there, pop out for lunch, then head back to see some of the makeup demonstrations ect.

    1. I know, I am going to be purchasing the Sigma Kabuki brush set soon :) If the brushes are good quality then they are worth it but sometimes the more affordable ones work just as good.

      Thanks for stopping by :) I will check out your site.
