Part Two: Brush Roll Review



I am back, everyone! Thank you for dropping by my blog. Do not forget to leave a comment. That would be much appreciated. :)



If you have missed out Part One, click here!


10) Angled Flat Eyeshadow Brush (three of them)
Great for placing eyeshadow at the outer-V area of the eye. Good for blending out eyeshadow at the crease as well. I have three of them in this brush roll. One can never have too many brushes like this. 
Verdict : YAY


------------------------------


11) Pencil Eyeshadow Brush
One of my favorite kind of brushes! I really like pencil brushes. The pointy tip makes precise eyeshadow application an ease especially for crease work or lash lines. I definitely want more pencil brushes. This brush is really soft but stiff enough to smudge out eyeliners.
Verdict : YAY


------------------------------


12) Angled Blush Brush
You will see that this brush and the one mentioned after this looks pretty similar. The reason I picked this brush as a blush brush because it is much softer and it does not give that much precision as I would like for contouring. But, I wish the brush head was a little bigger so that blending color on the cheeks would be easier as it would cover more area on the cheeks. 
Verdict : NAY


------------------------------


13) Angled Contour Brush
If only the blush brush mentioned above had the size just like this contour brush. This is stiffer and bigger and great for contour, in my opinion. It gives precision when blending a darker-than-my-skin-tone powder onto contour areas such as the temples of my forehead, under the cheekbones and the jawline. The bristles are not too dense therefore it won't pick up too much color. 
Verdict : YAY


------------------------------


14) Face Powder Brush (two of them)
For the face, my favorite kind of brush is the powder brush and the one that comes in this brush roll is no exception. It is one of my favorites because it is big and soft and feels great on the face. I prefer using powder brushes over powder puffs for reasons of hygiene. Do check out the Etude House powder brush because that is simply awesome! This comes second. :)
Verdict : YAY


------------------------------


15) Fan Powder Brush
Definitely the biggest brush in the roll. This fan brush is huge! It is spanned out really wide and covers a good area on the face while powdering. Bristles are very soft and it feels great on the face. I am new to fan brushes but this one is slowly growing on me. It might become my favorite face brush soon. 
Verdict : YAY


------------------------------


16) Fan Blush Brush
A smaller, thinner and sparser fan brush compared to the one above. Because of how sparse this brush is, it tends to get out of shape pretty easily. I have tried it on as a blush brush and it does pick up a good amount of color, just right for the cheeks for application but that is just as good as it gets. Do not rely on this brush to blend out your blush because the bristles are just not thick enough. I definitely prefer the conventional blush brush.
Verdict : NAY


------------------------------


That wraps up my brush roll review on all 24 brushes (some brushes are similar). Once again, bear in mind that this is how I PERSONALLY USE the brushes that come in different shapes and sizes. Thank you all for reading. Do not forget to leave a comment! 

Till then...
