After 2 years of restraining myself from online shopping, I'm at it again. So while I was trying Shopee, I decided to buy makeup brushes, a portable white box for photography and a huge bunch of lashes which I will be reviewing and making a post in the near future dates.
What: Unbranded Makeup Brushes from Shopee
Where to buy: Fancy Shop and tfscloinph.ph
Price: P554.00 (10pcs) and P192.00 (12pcs)
I purchased my very 1st makeup brush set from Quaipo when I was 21 and the 2nd set of my makeup brushes I purchased from a Romwe with a $30 voucher I won from their giveaway. I haven't got a new one until today since I don't use makeup brushes often even after I did the 30 Days of Makeup challenge.
Why did I buy unbranded makeup brush set?
Most of the items sold on Shopee are counterfeit and I don't want to support that in any way. Chances are, the counterfeit would have almost similar quality with the unbranded one anyway but for a much lesser price.
How durable are the brushes?
Handles are sturdy although it is made of a plastic like material rather than wood. There were customers complaining that it's too short but I don't have a problem with it. I just have to grab on the end of the handle to have less pressure during application.
Bristles are dense and soft except for the foundation brush which is too densely packed that it ends up tugging your skin when you use it to apply foundation. There were few fibers that are out of line but it isn't much that you should worry. I've washed it several times too but it hasn't shed (yet).
How does it perform?
Is it worth your money?
Yes, it does. It's not the cheapest unbranded makeup brush set I can find but it's worth that little extra money. In fact, I purchased the eye makeup brush set separately from a different shop after trying the 10pcs beginner brush set. I know its unbranded but it wasn't difficult to find.
