Best Makeup Brushes Ever?

Any artist knows your only as good as your tools and considering makeup is art, it falls heavy into this category.  As a beauty blogger I am constantly trying products new or old to the market.  I was lucky enough to nab these brushes for the try it now price of $3.99 from 08 Liters.  Being a Makeup Artist by trade I have owned my fair share of makeup brushes (in the 100’s) so feel very qualified to share my expertise on this topic 🙂

Above you will see the Anjou Makeup Brush Set (16) Pieces

This is a 16 synthetic fiber bristle set with a rose gold ferrule and classic black handle.  The dense fibers apply your makeup product evenly without shedding.  Very surprised of the quality, I went to research the company fearing this would be a luxury brand item, out of the price range to share with my followers. I was astonished to learn that this retails for $19.99!  My jaw dropped to the floor as I was shocked to see a very affordable makeup brush line for the novice to professional.  These are the products I love to bring to my readers as almost anyone can afford these pieces.  Now surprised at the cost, I took a closer look at the brushes to try to find something wrong with them.  Surly these brushes had to have a manufacturing issue to be so inexpensive.   I inspected, starting with the bag.

Its a nice thick but soft PU leather, I checked the stitching and all was well.  Everything secure and loved the magnetic buttons for closure.


Heading into the brush divider I was astonished to see all brushes covered with protective plastic coating with heaver plastic form holders for the biggest 3 brushes.  Again, stitching was good and above all else, was not bombarded with a heavy chemical smell upon opening the roll.  Sometimes, with lower manufactured brushes you will get a chemical smell from the synthetic fibers being cooped up in packaging.

Still amazed but…..  how did they work?

Look at all those brushes!  Included in the set is as follows:

Loose Powder Brush

Bronzer Brush

Foundation Brush

Concealer Brush

Blush Brush

Angled Foundation Brush

Contouring Brush

Highlighting Brush

Blending Brush

Large Eyeshadow Brush

Detail Brush

Lip Brush

Nose Contouring Brush

Smudging Brush

Angles Brush

Lash and Eyebrow Brush


I generally don’t like to label brushes cause they can be multi purposed but for label sake, there you go.  Everything for the most intricate makeup look.  Bet your now wondering how they work……. I concede, these are freggin AMAZING!

The weight, density, softness has me sold as my current Best Makeup Brush Buy!

Just take a look at the reviews on 5 Stars all the way.

In closing I want to thank 08 Liters for letting me try this product for $3.99.
