REVIEW: CHARM TRAVEL PRO V3 BRUSH SET


After  a thorough research and debating whether I should get a brush set , I finally had the guts to buy my first brush set for myself (my birthday gift to myself or should I say a reason to get one. LoL) Would you believe I only had 4 brushes from 3 from ELF & 1 from Marionnaud before I got this. I have been using these brushes for several months now and here's my two cents ^_^


The packaging  is so cute and chic it screams travel with its iconic landmark reminding you that you can bring these brushes anywhere you go. I couldn't bring myself to throw it away. 


I like how the makers (Sophie) also included instructions how to wash your brushes at the box perfect for beginners or those who are starting to get into makeup.


The brushes are housed in a black faux croc leather case with a contrasting hot pink zipper. Perfect for those gals who are not so girly or minimalist.

Detailed charm insignia in the zip

and here's what's inside..the interior is hot pink. You get 14 brushes, It's carefully packed as each brushes has its own plastic guard. 



The ferrule is in hot pink/ shocking pink and has a matte black handle and has the charm name emboss on it. 



And a closer look at the brushes:


Concealer Brush 
for hiding spots, uneven discoloration, dark under eye circles
best used with cream or liquid

Foundation Brush
best used for liquid foundation application

Angled Blush Brush
for contouring and your blush
Powder Brush

Stippling Brush 
used for liquid foundation, cream blush, powder for an airbrushed look

Eyeshadow Brush
 you can use this wet or dry

Angled Eyeshadow
you can use this for your brow highlight, contour your nose, applying eyeshadow to your outer v or in my case sweep on the eyeshadow on to my lid as I have small eyes


Brush Pencil Brush
to apply eyeshadow on your crease or outer v. since its small its perfect for small eyes or chinita eyes


Blending Brush 
to blend out or soften the eyeshadow harsh lines can also be used for applying your brow bone highlight or setting powder under your eyes
Flat Liner Brush 
applying your gel liner or eyeshadow, I prefer to use this for lining my lower lids instead

Bent Eyeliner Brush 
to apply precise line using your gel liner  

Angled Brow Brush
for your brow powder application


Spoolie Brush
for blending your brow powder for a natural look

Lip Brush
to apply your lipstick :p

PRO:

  • didn't bleed or shed
  • after several washes it's still soft
  • soft bristles, not scratchy
  • has a travel size stippling brush
  • perfect for traveling 
  • sturdy handles
CONS:
  • eyeshadow brush picks less pigment for dry application
  • hard to take out stains for the white brushes
THE VERDICT: 

For personal use these brushes exceeds my expectation. High quality brushes for an affordable price.

Would I recommend it: Yes, whether your a pro, make up newbie and to make up lovers out there.                    
                                  
Will I repurchase it: No, I have been using these daily for 6 months and they 
                               are still in top shape. Probably as a gift.
