I've been seeing these oval brushes everywhere on social media for the past 2-3 years and I was so adamant on trying them until they were gifted to me by a good friend of mine! And let me tell you... I am so happy to tell you all that THE HYPE IS REAL!
These brushes are extremely dense and soft making the application of your foundation quite flawless! You do have blend your foundation in really well or it could leave minor streaks. I did find it didn't work well with my Loreal Pro Matte Foundation because I find that this specific foundation dries quickly more than others. However having said that, it worked extremely well with my Loreal Pro Glow, leaving a flawless finish! This particular set came with 10 different brushes that can be used to blend your shadows, cream contours or foundation. You can find these sets on Amazon and Ebay for $12-$300 depending on the brand and how many brushes it came with. This particular set of 10 came from Amazon and was roughly $15 CAD according to my friend who gifted it to me and it is AMAZING. You'd think this set would have at least cost $150 from it's amazing quality. I found al ink on the MAC website (http://www.maccosmetics.ca/product/13805/28045/products/brushes-tools/brushes/face-brushes/oval-6-brush ) where they sold ONE of their blending oval brushes for a whopping $51 CAD. That is ridiculous! You can get this amazing set of 10 for that price, 3 sets never mind! This brush set from Amazon is an amazing DUPE girls, get on it!
This brush (photo above) is the second largest brush in the set, and I typically use it for my Loreal Pro Glow foundation, It gets in the crevices nicely, and I was extremely surprised that I didn't need my beauty blender to touch it up!
These 2 small brushes are thin, dense and have a nice edge that make it perfect for contouring on your nose !! Then blend harsh edges with this brush.....(below)
It's literally the perfect size for blending on the nose, or streaking your face with a darker shade of cream for contouring. The sky is the limit ladies...the limit!
