As we all know makeup brushes can be crazy expensive, sometimes even more than our makeup products. I remember when I first started getting into makeup, I of course needed a brush set that wouldn’t financially drain me. I did tons and tons of research and finally came across Coastal Scents. This cosmetics brand is known for its low prices yet good quality cosmetics and tools. This company is a great stand up against really expensive brands. Especially, if you’re new to makeup you probably won’t want to spend $20 on each brush or even $100 for a set. My first set of makeup brushes cost me $9.95 USD! That’s right, I bought a 12 piece brush set for $10. Normally, this brush set is listed for $25 on the Coastal Scents’ website, but they always have sales and promotions going on. I do remember, since I live in Canada, the shipping really took a toll. I spent around $35 total including shipping. Even though, for those who do not live in the United States, $35 for a 12 piece brush set is not bad at all.
I bought these brushes in 2014 and still use them every time I apply makeup. I’ve washed them over and over again, and still they are some of my favourite face and eye brushes. This set includes:
- Powder brush (natural)
- Angled blush brush (natural)
- Foundation brush (synthetic)
- Medium shadow brush (synthetic)
- Blender doefoot brush (synthetic)
- Blender pointed brush (natural)
- Concealer brush (synthetic)
- Detail round brush (synthetic)
- Detail pointed brush (synthetic)
- Angled liner brush (synthetic)
- Bent liner brush (synthetic)
- Lash brow comb (synthetic)
These brushes are soft, do not shed every use, and the quality is great. I have been using my Coastal Scents brushes for about 3 years, and continue to use them. Shipping was no problem whatsoever and surprisingly I received my package in a short amount of time. I will definitely repurchase from this company and try out more of their products. My brush collection has grown over the years and I use Coastal Scents brushes along with my Mac, Real Techniques, and Luxie brushes. My only regret would be not buying a bigger brush set. I do recommend these brushes to anyone just staring out with makeup or even individuals who are experienced in this field. It’s a great price for great quality brushes.
