I first saw these eye-catching canary yellow brushes on the Moda Mob channel and I have coveted them since. They are available at Beauty Bay but only individually, so I waited until Black Friday when they had 30% off and free worldwide shipping and snapped up the 24 Piece Studio Luxury Maestro Set ($165) that comes with a brush roll and 24 brushes. No regrets. To give you an idea of the cost, without the discount $165 = approx £130, which works out around £5.50 per brush. With the discount of 30% the price is cut to $115.50 = approx £91 (at the current exchange rate), which works out to be a respectable £3.80 per brush. Not bad at all in my opinion, I didn't have to pay any additional charges for shipping. I got Standard International Delivery which was free at the time of purchase and was stated to be a wait of 4-6 weeks. I got mine in 2 weeks which is nothing short of amazing. I thought it was my Colour Pop order, which I still haven't got, so this was a pleasant surprise.
My initial impression is that they are good brushes, the bristles are soft and lovely. Each brush feels well-made, strudy, the handles are long and have a little weight to them so I think these would be great tools for artistry on other people as well as just for using on yourself. The brush roll is pointless, I can't fit the bigger brushes in there and it doesn't feel all that secure. Here is a look at what brushes you get inside. There are 11 face brushes, of course you can use them for whatever but that is how they are labelled: #995U Kabuki (the smaller brush without the yellow handle), #990S Angled Face, #980S Natural Powder, #964S AP Blusher, #960S Precision Blusher, #957S Precision Cheek, #955S Finishing, #948S Foundation, #945S Contour, #942S Slanted Contour and #936S Concealer. There are 12 eyeshadow brushes: #785S Tapered Blending, #780S Pencil, #777S Shadow, #776S Blending, #769S Angled Contour, #766S Angled Shadow, #763S Angled Brow, #755S Smudge, #733S Lash, #722S Comb/Brow, #714S Flat Eye Definer and #710S Eye Liner. There is 1 retractable lip brush that stands out from the rest with its metallic silver packaging, you can twist it up and the number of it is: #555U Retractable Lip.
I am so happy I have a bunch of yellow brushes in my life. I wish I had a cool way to store my makeup brushes because I love buying them so much. If you have any brush storage ideas please let me know in the comments. I would love to know what your favourite makeup brushes are as well. Don't forget to follow me on Bloglovin', I am still in America so it would be a lovely gift to come back to. I worked super hard to get these posts up and it has been a really stressful time as well which I will explain when I get back. Thank you so much for reading, you are the best! Take care.
