An attraction of unprecedented generosity took place last month! A set of brushes for makeup of the face and eyes Make Up For Ever Lustrous Brush Set could be bought for 3,700 rubles, when the cost of one brush is 2,000 rubles. and higher.
This is how I got several full-size brushes with the trademark Make Up For Ever quality.
Similar Make Up For Ever brush sets released annually before the Christmas holidays. But here in Russia they appeared for the first time. Hopefully this will become a tradition and we will be able to save a decent amount every year.
Now let’s calculate how much the brushes will cost if you buy them separately, outside the set.
- Brush for foundation Make Up For Ever # 108 Large Foundation Brush = 2168 RUB.
- Flat blush brush Make Up For Ever # 156 Large Flat Blush Brush = 2168 RUB.
- Highlighter Brush Make Up For Ever # 140 Medium Highlighter Brush = 2020 RUB
- Brush for eyeshadow Make Up For Ever # 226 Medium Eye Shader Brush = 1615 RUB.
- Eyeshadow brush Make Up For Ever # 216 Medium Precision Eye Blender Brush = 1615 RUB.
Total: RUB 9.586
Not a bad economy. And these are not the infamous Christmas brush sets from Mac Cosmetics with a cheap and low-quality assembly, which are simply impossible and ashamed to use!
All brushes from the basic line, so the review will be relevant for those who plan to buy them separately. Who knows when more such sets will appear.
Make Up For Ever # 108 Large Foundation Brush
I haven’t worked with flat brushes for a long time. Probably, this affected its frequent use. I like it so much with its shape and result, that until I return to my own beauty blender…
Make Up For Ever # 156 Large Flat Blush Brush
The habit of working with the flat part of the blush brush made itself felt.
The shape of the brush limits movement, so I don’t consider it universal. Working out the cheekbones – yes, applying blush on the cheeks is questionable …
Make Up For Ever # 140 Medium Highlighter Brush
Excellent shape and delicate bristles make it suitable for applying eyeshadows. When the shading goes far beyond the fold (which is often the case) I go to it. I have never refused help.
Make Up For Ever # 216 Medium Precision Eye Blender Brush
Love at first touch! The Keg is the simplest and at the same time the most complex brush in shape. Some brands narrow the tip a lot, others vice versa. This shape is saved by the tightly gathered pile. Ideal for working out a fold, namely, its darkening, and, working out the lower eyelid.
Make Up For Ever # 226 Medium Eye Shader Brush
I really like how she picks up pigments and gives off color. An ideal spatula shape for this purpose, which is even a pity to use for ordinary compressed shadows.
This is the first brush set in my life that fully met expectations. And it’s not about the price, but about its composition. The lack of basic and necessary brushes is a minus of most sets, but not the Make Up For Ever Lustrous Brush Set.
