A while back, I purchased two black oval brush sets, and I promised a review on it, but after looking at photos online and comparing the two sets that I had, I realized that the sizes of the brushes were inconsistent. I decided not to write about those, since I couldn’t get over the size inconsistency. I have since been on the lookout for a boxed set – I figured a boxed set would have a more complete and correctly sized brushes, and a few weeks ago, I saw these rose gold paddle/mermaid/oval brushes from Girls Corner. I mean, I obviously had to pick it up! Hello?! The rose gold color was just too pretty to pass up!
The brushes are made with super soft synthetic hair and feels amazing on the skin. The brushes are densely packed, and does a really good job of blending cream products. I personally love using the biggest oval brush for my moisturizer – it blends the product into the skin completely, plus I get a mini massage too! My only suggestion is that you put your cream products directly on your face, and not on the brush, because the brush will soak up all the product if you do. The handles are plastic, with a bit of a flex to it. I think that’s important to note because if the plastic was too hard and not flexible, the handle will break off when you use it. Both the black and the rose gold versions have the same style, just the color and the brush sizes are different.
My favourites would have to be the biggest brush (for my moisturizer/skincare), the third biggest (for blending cream products), the round lip brush (my favorite to use with matte liquid lipsticks) and the big flat brush (for contouring the nose line and brushing the brows). You would think that because of it’s shape, it would be difficult to use, but surprisingly, it’s not! I find that I am able to apply and blend products without putting too much pressure, and I have more control – especially with the lip brushes! I can easily follow my cupid’s bow with minimal effort.
The packaging itself is nothing special – the box was meh and so was the tray holding the brushes, but I don’t really care much about that. For products like these, I am more concerned about what’s inside the boxes since I’m sure I’d just throw the packaging away.
Now on to the good stuff… I really like my rose gold oval brush set, so much so that I thought I’d give away a 6-piece Rose Gold Oval Brush Set to my readers! After all, it’s almost Christmas, right? It’s completely free, you just have to do the following:
