Meeting Mikasa + Discount Code

I love trying out more underrated brands and I am always on the hunt to find new faves.  “Mikasa Beauty” appeared on my radar, not too long ago, and they make brushes and makeup. So I decided to try out brushes and purchased the “5 Piece Complexion Brush Set”, which comes with:

  • Powder Brush
  • Tapered Contour Brush
  • Foundation Brush
  • Tapered Blending Brush
  • Eye Shader Brush

all brushesWhen I ordered my brush set there was a promotion going on where you get a concealer brush for free. You are able to buy individual brushes. An eye brush will cost you an average of 11-12 dollars (USD) and a face brush will vary from 12-21 dollars (USB). They also make lip brushes, beauty sponges, and makeup. At first use I immediately noticed the softness of these brushes. My favourites would include the powder and tapered contour brush. I love the powder brush because of its size, softness and how well it applies product. You can use this to powder your face and it works great, but I love it especially for bronzing.

The contour brush is quite tapered, as you’ll see in the pictures, and it helps outlines where you exactly want your product to be and then just merely blend it out. With the flat foundation brush, I personally do not use it for applying foundation; I use it more to apply moisturizer and primer. I love that the face brushes are super soft and the eye brushes a tad denser, not too much, which I personally look for in eye brushes.

In terms of packaging, this company did do a great job. They were individually boxed and within the boxes the brushes were wrapped as well, and no damage could be done during delivery. Delivery itself did not take an excessive time which I did appreciate.

packageThe only brush I probably will not using is the concealer brushes; I never use concealer brushes I find them quite pointless but that’s just me. I was more nervous about washing these brushes just because I’ve notice more bristle fallout when you wash brushes the first time, but I was pleasantly surprised when literally only one hair came out. The brushes dry to their original shape and are good to go again! I am looking forward to trying the E300 and E330 which are larger blending brushes and the beauty sponge.
