The Sephora Collection Gift of Beauty Brush Set* is so pretty this post has way more photos of it than are necessary. Just a warning. It was released for Mother’s Day and unfortunately by the time I got mine it was sold out online, but you may still be able to find it in stores. The Sephora Collection Gift of Beauty Brush Set is a limited edition brush set with five full size brushes for your whole face in a lovely printed makeup bag.
The brushes included in the Sephora Collection Gift of Beauty Brush Set have the same print as the bag on as well as rose gold metal to accent them. There is a nice weight to the brush, and despite the affordable price tag ($53 for the entire set) they feel expensive.
The largest brush and my easy favourite out of the Sephora Collection Gift of Beauty Brush Set is the Flat Top Foundation brush. It is very dense and incredibly soft. As somebody used to apply foundation with my fingers, it has to take something pretty good to convince me to start washing brushes, and this is it. I have also use this to apply powder, although you do have to be careful as it is quite dense and will give a heavier application. I find this brush gives me fuller coverage out of a foundation than I would applying it with my fingers, so it also uses slightly more product.
Next up in the Sephora Collection Gift of Beauty Brush Set is the large shadow brush, which I was initially a little puzzled by until I saw Julie’s great review (click!) and where she suggested using it to highlight your cheekbones. I also sometimes use it to give an all over wash of colour on my lid or browbone.
There’s also a small shadow and crease brush which are both very soft but dense enough that they still apply and blend an eyeshadow look well. I used only the Sephora Collection Gift of Beauty Brush Set to apply the FOTD featured in my Essence Cookies & Cream Collection review, so click here to check out the results.
The only brush I am little less excited over the flat liner brush, which is a little less soft and also a bit large to use for eyeliner (which I rarely wear), and so I haven’t quite figured out exactly what I will be using it for, but the good thing is I don’t own any others like it in my collection so I’m sure someday it will come to the rescue.
Overall, this set is really gorgeous and great quality, so it is definitely worth it if you see it in store. However, although you may not be able to find the Sephora Collection Gift of Beauty Brush Set anymore, based on the quality of these brushes I would definitely recommend trying out other Sephora Collection brushes and luckily I’ll have a few more to share with you in the coming weeks!
Have you tried Sephora brushes before? What do you think of this set?
