Hey family, I hope everyone is doing great! I have been using this brush set I got from eBay for a while now and I decided to do a quick review on them. I haven’t seen any in depth reviews so far so I hope this will be helpful to someone.
There are a lot of vendors selling the same brush set for almost the same price but a lot of different colours. I purchased mine from ccc_gadgets for £4.90. The set is made up of 5 long and 5 short brushes.
Spec (from seller listing)
5Pcs Make up Brush Set Long

Flat Angled Kabuki: Blends foundation easily onto hard to reach areas of the face.
The brushes are made from synthetic hair and the bristles are quite soft. The density on the short kabuki is quite good too. The delivery was ok and it came packaged in plastic. It didn’t have any weird smell to it. On the first wash, before I used it, I didn’t experience any shedding or colour run so that’s good.
The brushes work really well. I used the flat angled kabuki for foundation and it blends beautifully. I use the pointed brush for applying under eye powders or highlighters. The flat top brush I use to apply face powder. I really like the long brushes too. They are perfect for blending under eye concealer and eyeshadow.
The only issue I have with them- the handles of two of the short brushes have become really loose. I have washed the brushes about 3 or 4 times now. But for the price I paid and the fact that only 2 out of the 10 so far are loose already I think its ok
Verdict- I really like these brushes. I think it’s a good spare set to have for travelling or if you wash your makeup brushes frequently, something to use whilst your main set dries. Do check out the seller for more info and to see the different colours they have in stock
I am looking to buy the Morphe 6pc brush set too, I have been eyeing that for a while now. Let me know if you guys use them!
