The best times to go beauty shopping for me is late nights while the average American is home in their beds after showering and having dinner. Less traffic. Less crowds. I enjoy it because that’s when the stocking crew is out restocking shelves and changing prices. I said that to say… I went to Target and on the clearance shelf was a Sonia Kashuk Limited Edition 3 Piece Starter Kit for $17.98. It was the last one left and it’s all mine! If you know anything about quality makeup brushes, you know that a good quality brush can run you anywhere from $15 to $50 depending on the brand and type of brush it is. Well, I got 3 quality brushes for the price of one. Woot Woot! As a Makeup Artist you can NEVER have too many brushes. Each brush has it’s own personality and by personality I mean… it has its own effect when using it to apply a product.
This kit came with a a Blusher Brush for applying powder foundation, minerals or blush, a Small Synthetic Concealer Brush for concealer dark spots or blemishes, and a Large Domed Eye Shadow Brush for applying, blending and contouring. This starter kit also includes a Beauty Brush-Up book with insider application secrets from Sonia and a guide on the different brush shapes and uses. Individually these brushes retail at:
Blusher Brush $17.99
Small Synthetic Concealer Brush $9.99
Large Domed Eye Shadow Brush $9.99
These brushes are very soft. I haven’t experienced any shedding so far. They pick up a lot of product and apply product flawlessly. I’m using the Domed Eye Shadow Brush as a large crease/blending brush. It blends soooo well. I like the contoured shape of the ferrule (handles) because it allows for an easy grip! I’m sort of clumsy!
So far so good!
