Today I'm excited to be reviewing this brush set from Royal Care Cosmetics for you all. I honestly find brushes to be such a crucial part of my makeup routine, and I'm always eager to try out new brands and types of brushes, and find out what incorporates best into my regime. Brushes work differently for everyone, and many of them have multiple uses. I just am mind blown when I hear some people say they never even use brushes, or they only have one, or that they just use the little sponge tip applicator that comes with their product. Sorry, but yuck. If that routine works for you then you're so lucky... but the results you can achieve with the right tools will be so much further advanced than you would have ever imagined you were capable of!
I'd like to start off by saying that these brushes are not THE BEST brushes, but for the cost, they are an above average quality and really do get the job done at an affordable price. These are really quite comparable to Sigma or Sedona Lace, with a few discrepancies. For beginners, I really would reccommend this brand as you get used to the functions and uses of each type of brush, rather than spending over $100 on your first set. This particular set was a 12-piece brush kit that cost me $17.95 + shipping on Amazon.
The packaging of these brushes is really nice. They are a long enough handle for nice control, and feel weighted enough and sturdy enough for wear and tear. They are a matte black with a silver top. I did notice a *few* stray bristles on some of the brushes, but after the first wash, they lost minimal hair and I did not notice shedding again. The density is nice overall, not as thick as some of my MAC or even Real Techniques brushes, but again, they get the job done better than many other brushes I have tried. I do wish that the set came with some labeling of the brushes, naming or numbering them rather than just the logo on the handle.
