One of the BEST things about loving the beauty world is finding random drugstore treasures, and these brushes by Essential Tools are just that! This is called the Ultimate Hi-Def Brush set, and the entire kit retails for $11 and some change at Wal-Mart. I hardly ever go there, but Wal-Mart is the only place that sells the type of cat litter we use (I know, so random to this post), so every once in awhile I scope out Hard Candy and makeup brushes while picking it up.
- Contoured cheek brush
- Mini powder brush
- Concealer brush
- Foundation brush
The bristles are synthetic, and the handles are very lightweight. These bristles are incredible soft; they actually feel just like the ones on my It Cosmetics brushes!
As far as performance, these brushes are awesome! I have no complaints at all! They blend like a DREAM. I love the angled contour brush for blush. Actually, one day I was trying to blend my blush and the brush I was using just didn’t give an even finish. I switched to the angled contour brush from this set and just swept it across my cheeks a couple times, and BAM! It blended perfectly.
I’ve even used the smallest brush in this set to work on my eyeshadow. It’s a little big for that, but when held right, it works nicely in the crease for blending.
I definitely recommend picking up this set if you see it!
