SEPHORA COLLECTION: BYOB Bring Your Own Brushes Break Ups to Make Up Brush Set review

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?

  • That is a thin lip brush! I could see it being okay for eyeliner, but it’d take ages for it to work for lips.

    The design on these brushes…so cute! Too bad they quality was hit or miss.
