Professional Makeup Brush Set


Available On www.ebay.com

Price-Around INR 830 including shipping (depending on which shipping mode you select & the seller you purchase from)

What -18 pieces Professional Makeup Brush Set made of fine goat & pony hair,sturdy wooden handle in stylish black leather casing.

Package Size-
  • Brush length: 18cm to 22cm
  • Case size (after fold up): 24cm x 24cm
Pros- Very comprehensive brush selection, the bristles are nice & soft.The brushes have long & sturdy handles providing perfect control on the brushstrokes for makeup application.
The fan brush is quite large & very handy when you need to quickly sweep a light coat of face powder. 
The large powder brush, blush brush & contour brush  are awesome & make for an effortless makeup application.
The eyeshadow brushes are numerous and come in various sizes, making it easier when you want to try different looks & cant be bothered with immediate cleaning of brushes.
The pricing of the set makes it a perfect steal, the total cost of the set including shipping is lesser than the cost of a single MAC or Sigma brushes. While MAC & Sigma brushes have their legions of followers, this brush set makes a great addition to your makeup toolkit.
Cons- Barring an odd flyaway strand almost all the brushes will be of great use to any make up aficionado, however I do miss a dome shaped blending brush in the collection. I wish the shipping would be faster it took exactly 30 days for the package delivery, but can't fault the seller for this.
