Anyway after watching a few reviews on the tube I went back to Costco and bought myself these brushes. I paid £19.84 which included V.A.T. The cashier admired my purchase and told me she bought some before and loved them. I went back last week and could not see any of the brushes for sale. They seem to sell out quick.
Borghese Makeup Brushes
Thanks to the many beauty blogger blogs and YouTubers I have developed a love of makeup. I also would love to one day make regular videos on YouTube. I have a camcorder although not HD, but its okay for me. Oh and I do have a new digital camera. It was much needed. The video below was made using my Sony Cybershot digital camera, lighting is not perfect but I wanted to do video showing the brushes instead of loads of pictures. I have been unable to do another video as my kids are always awake and love the camera spotlight.
Anyway over Easter holidays I went into Costco and saw that they had row taller than me (well most things are) of their new Makeup brush set. I thought price looks nice, but I was shopping for my sons christening. So when I came home and got on twitter and mentioned my find. So when Vexinthecity tweeted her surprise they were now available in the UK and a bargain, I thought to myself maybe I ought to go back and buy them. After all I was going to the M.A.C. counter in Birmingham to treat myself to a new foundation.
I have been using these brushes for a couple of weeks and I do love them. This is the second set of brushes I have purchase from costco. The Powder Kabuki brush is amazing. I use it for my finishing powders like the m.a.c. skin finish mineralizer. My first few uses I got a few shed hairs but that has seemed to have calmed down. I also love the Foundation brush. It is not the usual flat smooth brush. This one is round. What I am finding is that because of this it is so easy to end up with loads of product so I have to use less of the liquid foundation. The box states you can use it for liquid cream or powder foundations.
For the first time I have a concealer and have made use of the concealer brush. It’s okay. I am not sure what I am supposed to look for in a concealer brush so for now it does the job. I tried to use the Angled eyed contour brush but my technique was poor. Please give me some tips. Those are the only brushes I have used. Feel free to give me some tips or ideas for the others.
