Milani, the affordable cosmetics line has launched its first brush collection – the Milani Essential Brush Set. This synthetic (nylon) brush set features six (6) brushes for the face and eyes to help create a beautiful makeup look using professional quality tools.
I was able to test out each brush featured in the Milani Essential Brush Set, and I’m happy with how the brushes in the set performed. As a fan of synthetic brushes since they offer greater versatility and superior durability over time, you’re getting a lot of bang for your buck since the brushes are affordably priced. The nylon bristles of the brush are soft, and allow you to create a flawless, streak-free makeup look.
Foundation Brush – $16
This flat top brush blends powder, cream and liquid foundation. I used it to apply my HG liquid foundation, and the brush applied my makeup effortlessly. My makeup wasn’t streaky, and uneven.
Powder/ Bronzer Brush – $16
This dome –shaped brush is a 2-in-1 powder and bronzer brush that’s great for blending and buffing bronzer or powder into the skin. I used this brush to apply press (not buff) my loose powder onto my skin in the areas where I wanted to reduce shine like my t-zone. I also used it to apply my bronzer, but I found I liked it best for pressing in my powder.
Blush Brush – $16
The tapered bristles of this brush are perfect for precise application of blush. I applied one of my brightest blushes with this brush to test out how well it performed. The Essential Blush Brush worked well. My blush was placed exactly where I wanted it, and the brush blended the blush to perfection. No clown makeup here! I also liked to use it to apply my highlighter.
All Over Shadow Brush – $8
This soft, flat brush is the perfect size for applying eyeshadow or base to the eyelids. It’s a good brush for packing on eyeshadow onto the lid. You can also flip it over to get into the crease.
Blending Brush – $8
The rounded, tapered Blending Brush is great for blending eyeshadow to soften lines, contouring, or even blending concealer. I used this brush for several things like blending shadow into the crease, blending my under eye concealer, and applying contour to my nose.
Crease Brush – $8
The small rounded bristles of the Crease Brush make it perfect for applying shadow to the outer v, sculpting out the eye with precision, for added depth and dimension. Think smoky eye.
The Milani Essential Brush Set can be purchased for $60 or each brush individually, but purchasing the set you saves you $9. The brushes can be purchased on http://milanicosmetics.com/Brushes/.
