If you’re looking for high quality and cruelty-free brushes, the…
Packing my “getaway” makeup bag this year was a lot easier because of this SEPHORA COLLECTION Break Ups to Make Up Brush Set. See, I usually travel with carry-on only so I have to pack light, and this adorable little set fit nicely tucked away in my purse. And truth be told I rarely bring my everyday brushes on the road with me because I am protective of them! (MY BABIES!)
The Break Ups to Make Up set contains five brushes for both face and eye, all packed in a cute and portable jelly makeup bag. Some are synthetic and some are cruelty-free natural hair (goat).
Round powder brush (goat hair) – good for blush and powder. This is soft and does deliver just the right amount of product. I found the quality of this brush to be pretty good, although I did notice some shedding.
Angled brush (goat hair) – good for contouring or highlighting. Of all the brushes, this was the biggest disappointment. It was a bit scratchy and look at the disarrayof those hairs! This made for some pretty poor placement of product and some powder fallout.
Crease brush (goat hair) – great for placement and blending in and around the crease. This one was great, not as good as my MAC 217, but still adequate!
Allover shadow brush (synthetic) – great for all over shadow application or patting bold colour on the lid. This was my favourite of all the brushes!
Lip brush (synthetic) – say what? I did not use this as a lip brush. Maybe a liner brush?
That bag, though…
The downside: this Break Ups to Make Up set is $68 CAD, which to me is a bit steep for a brush set that is just adequate. I love the design, I love the bag… and maybe in US dollars this is worth it?
