As soon as I received an e-mail from Coastal Scents about their 85% brush sale!!!! I knew I have to get me something.
The deal was so good. You could get even their most expensive brushes for just a couple bucks.
So, I went ahead and picked 4 brushes I wanted to try for a very, very long time.
You see 5 brushes on the pics because I’ve got two of one kind, on purpose of course, it wasn’t a mistake.
I paid for all of them $7, excluding shipping.
One of the most wanted of the bunch was the duo fiber one C-S26 Classic Round Duo Fiber Synthetic.
It’s made of synthetic bristles. I actually wanted to get the duo fiber buffer brush…
This brush is ok, didn’t shed. And as Coastal Scents stated on the site, it is perfect for your bronzer or blush, powder or cream. I already tested it, and for me it works better with cream products, if we’re talking about blushes. I used it for my foundation and I am not pleased with the result. It is not dense enough for that purpose. And the application is so streaky when I am using some foundations more on the watery side. If you have it and love it, let me know how you’re using it. I would appreciate that.
Next come the brushes which I love the most out of this bunch:
The C-N04 CLASSIC SHADOW DOME NATURAL – love this brush! I got two of them. It applies the shadow in my crease beautifully, right where I need the color to be. It’s very dense, made of natural bristles, so be careful to not grab too much product on the brush, especially with those deep and pigmented eye shadows you have. I am using it for blending too. Also for a super smokey eye makeup, I apply my eye shadows on my lower lid using this brush too.
This baby is working hard on my lids every day. Definitely check this brush out, I am sure you are gonna love it for its versatility.
My only complaint would be its shedding. I hope it will stop though, they are shedding while I am washing them, while I am applying my eye shadows… That upsets me a lot, cause Iove these brushes so much.
Another jewel of mine, C-N13 CLASSIC DETAIL POINTED NATURAL. It’s a small petal shaped brush. Packed with natural bristles. Soft but it’s not flimsy. It’s a very good, tiny brush for all those detailed eye shadow applications. I use it almost everyday.
Last but not least, the C-N10 CLASSIC ANGLED LINER NATURAL. I got this one for my eye brows or my eye liner. I tried it both ways and loved filling my brows using it. It’s too wide for my eye liner but perfect for my brows. The cut itself is pretty thin so I can do my brows fast and beautiful :)
I definitely recommend you checking out the Coastal Scents brushes. They are affordable and do the job very well. Especially when you see some deals or specials going on at Coastal Scents, don’t miss them out. You may get some really good products and end up by loving them a lot.
See you in my next post. Take care.
