Brushes are indispensable when it comes to having the perfect make-up. As often seen in the blogging world, reviews upon reviews emerge on well-known brands such as Sigma, Real Techniques, MAC, Zoeva, etc…but what about smaller brands? Why don’t we talk about affordable brushes that won’t be breaking the bank?! I was kindly gifted the LaRoc 10 Piece Kabuki Makeup Brush Set* and I want to tell you all about these fab little brushes.
Consisting of 10 beautifully made Kabuki brushes, each one is designed for a specific task, and for each bigger brush there is a matching smaller brush. The brushes feel sturdy, dense and comfortable to hold. And whilst they are not labelled, I did a little research and starting with the face brushes, here is what they are designed for.
From left to right: Foundation and Powder Brush (1), Blending Foundation Brush (2), Blush and Bronzer Brush (3), Precision Foundation Brush (4) and Precision Brush (5).
Now moving on to the eye brushes (which are my favourite), from left to right we have: Concealer Brush (6), Primer and Shadow Brush (7), Precision Contouring Brush (8), Contouring Brush (9) and Precision Brush (10).
With the bronzer brush, applying my favourite bronzer is a dream. It fits under my cheekbones perfectly and the soft yet dense bristles provide perfect coverage with the right amount of product. Similarly, the contouring brushes are ideal for defining the nose bridge and I use them sometimes for concealer too. The combinations with these are endless and whatever feels right and yields the better finish is what I go with.
♥ Affordable kit.

✗ Pouch bag isn’t of great quality.
✗ Precision brushes are stiff.
✗ Inconsistency with brushes softness.
✗ No labels on each brush.
Of course, as with any other set you end up using a few brushes more over the others. But I truly find these perfect for building up your make-up brush set and are great for beginners too. I love using these affordable brushes on a day-to-day basis and they are a good addition to my ever growing collection. They are not the best brushes I own, but for the price one cannot complain. You can find it here for £6.99.
Tell me, do you own affordable brushes too?
Thanks for reading beauties and I will see you all soon!
