Cheap Ebay Brush Stash

I recently added to my brush stash with this set off Ebay, looking very similar to the Sigmax Collection and various other brush sets i’ve noticed around the interwebs, the cheap price ($13.15 and free postage) lured me in.  You can check out the Ebay seller I used here. Just note the price could be different with exchange rates.

The collection includes 5 Synthetic Kabuki style face brushes and 5 eye brushes, you can also choose from a variety of handle colours. I picked the white because I didn’t have any white brushes in my collection and I think they look kinda cool.

So far i’ve only used 2 of the face brushes, the flat top kabuki & round top kabuki. Comparing these to my Real Techniques Buffing Brush that I use on a daily basis, well they are okay. If you’re new to makeup and building up a collection of brushes they certainly do the job. I just found that they kind of “ate” my foundation and I felt like I needed to use more then I would normally use.

In the eye brush offering i’ve only used the round eye brush, and used it similarly to how I use my Real Techniques Deluxe Crease Brush – to blend in my concealer. It does a good job and is very comparable to the Real Techniques version.

As mentioned before, this is a great set (and a bargain) for a beginner or if you’re just looking to beef up your brush stash with a few different types of face/eye brushes. I don’t regret my purchase and look forward to giving the angled brushes in both face and eye sets a whirl with my contour application.

I also spied a set on ebay identical to the Real Techniques brushes as well, let me know if you’d like me to grab these to do a comparison.
