The set comes with 5 essential brushes.
The Angled Brush is wonderful for creating defined and precise lines. Can be used for multiple things such as shaping the foundation around your lips, or defining your eyeline. I'll most likely be using mine as a brow filler tool, all I need now is some sweet brow powder. Guess my brow magic pencil will have to do for now.
A rounded edge flat lip brush that is ideal for applying lipstick. It is inspiring me to purchase more now that I have such a good application tool. I would love a good taupe lippy.
Highlighter BrushHighlighter Brush is exactly the type of brush I need to perfect my contouring skills. Writing this post has made me realise there are quite a few makeup supplies that I wish to purchase. (watch out Sephora) This versatile brush can also be used to apply liquid and powder foundation! Nifty!
Eyeshadow Brusheyeshadow brush on the other hand is perfect, soft on your eyelids, and is good at holding the eyeshadow as you transfer it to your lids. Can be used with both cream and powder textured eyeshadows.
I find Blending Brushes are something you don't realise you need until you're following some sweet eyeshadow tutorial, and it requires you to blend all the colours in so that they are perfect and you only have your eyeshadow brush and you're just mushing around crazily. Yes well this is where the blending brush comes in. Soft circles over your makeup is enough to blend the colours wonderfully without removing it all.
I love all of these brushes! There is no doubt they will become an essential part of my daily routine. But I probably would never have bought them myself because of the price. Which then I would have greatly missed out on these top quality brushes! This won't be the last I try of Illamasqua.
