A while ago I received these brushes as a gift from Crystal of BftE Cosmetics. This is their 18 piece vegan brush set.
These are vegan brushes that come with a professional brush roll. They’re grey in appearance.
This is an angled liner brush and a pointed liner brush. I use some form of pointed liner brush just about every day to line my eyes. If the brush is thin enough, like the one above, I’ll use it to line my eyes or define my brows.
These are more shadows and concealers. You can use them for fine detail work, or the smaller ones possibly as lip brushes. They work well at depositing color on the lid with either the patting motion or a sweeping motion.
The smallest brush in this set works well for blush, but it can also be used to contour. It’s a tad larger than the other brush that I use for contouring, but it works fairly well for contouring because of how dense it is. Same with blush. I love the angled brush for blush, too. The powder brush is nice as well. I love how dense all three of these brushes are.
Finally, these are the spoolie, fan brush and sponge brush. The sponge brush is a high quality sponge and I think it works well for blending out edges. The spoolie is what I use to help with mascara clumps. The fan brush can be used to highlight on the cheeks.
$45 for 18 brushes, which breaks down to about $2.50 per brush.
The brushes are very dense and the bristles are smooth. They feel very similar to the Too Faced Teddy Bear Hair brushes. They offer just about every single type of brush in this set. The only brushes that I feel are missing are:
A highligher brush (for the browbone, like my ecoTools highlighter)
A blending brush (like the MAC 224)
They have everything else in this set. I think it’s a fantastic set if you’re looking to round out your brush collection, or if you’re looking to start a brush collection. These are really great brushes and a steal for the price. The only possibly negative thing that I can say about them is that the handles are very long, in professional makeup artist style. I prefer shorter handles, but even that doesn’t detract from the quality of the brushes or stop me from using them.
To care for them, I wash each brush after it’s been used once and I use Dr. Bronner’s pure castile soap to cleanse them. They’ve had minimal to no shedding (depending on the brush). I’ve only had a few stray hairs after the first wash, which wasn’t bad at all.
Would I purchase them?
Yes! Especially if they ever came out in a fuchsia set!
Product was a gift. All opinions are my own.
