Professional 12 Set Makeup Brush Kit Review

Professional 12 Set Makeup Brush Kit Review

I had the opportunity to try out this set of 12 makeup brushes from Petunia. It comes in a great travel brush roll. There was a great extra in the box that I was not expecting and it was brush guards. I love brush guards for after washing my brushes to help them maintain their shape while they dry. 

I like that it comes with an insert that tell you how each brush is recommended to be used. This is  great for any beginners. This set is a great beginners brush set. It has the different types of brushes you will need to compete a look. I personally prefer a flat top brush to apply my foundation and think that shape of a brush is  one that might be an addition that I would like to see in another set. 

I love the color combo of this set. The brushes are comfortable in the hand and the most of the brushes are good. The brown bristles brushes are soft and the black and white brushes (synthetic) are the softest. The brushes with the black bristles (natural hair) are stiffer than all the other brushes and not as dense. They are better for powder applications. The fan brush is a bit thin for makeup application, but is good for brushing off any fall out you may have after applying your eye shadow. 

There is one unique brush which is great to keep in your makeup bag. The lip brush with the cover is perfect. It keeps my brush soft and pliable and protect it form the dust that can get attracted to is from the moisture of my lipstick.

 When you get your brushes the larger brushes will have brush guards to protect them which is a need thing when and if you plan on keeping your brushed rolled up in the brush roll to protect your bristle form getting misshapen. 

Ultimately my thoughts are: these are good for a travel set since it can be portable and doesn't take up much space. The quality is good, but with some improvements in a couple of the brush texture, can be a fantastic set. It is convenient to have a variety of brushes in one spot. There are a couple brushes in this set which I really enjoy and have been using on a daily basis (eyebrow brush, smudge brush, eyeshadow brush and the concealer brush) I do however use some of these brushes for different uses than the suggested use.

Handmade from Natural and Synthetic Hair for a Precise and Soft Application
Our brushes are made with a combination of high quality pony hair, goat hair, and synthetic hair. Synthetic brushes are great for liquid-based makeup, while natural hair brushes pick up and distribute powder makeup evenly and smoothly. They are super soft and silky on top, yet durable and long lasting at the bottom, and with continuous use these brushes get even softer. Allows you to apply colors smoothly and pigment does not cling to hairs after application, enabling you to blend and reuse colors without cleaning after each use.
Easy to Clean and Dry
These brushes do not need to be cleaned frequently, but when needed, run them through warm water, then clean with a gentle shampoo, and rinse thoroughly. Place brushes on a clean surface to air dry.
Sleek Fold-up Pouch for Organization and Travel
Kept in a sleek folding pouch that is convenient to bring around and protects the brushes from dust and dirt.
