The 3 piece Pro Powder Makeup Brush Set ($20) comes with a pink satin lined zippered pouch. Inside are three brushes with synthetic bristles: the Pro Large Finishing Powder Brush, the Pro Multitasker Powder Blush Brush, and the Pro Setting Powder Brush. These are brushes are for loose and pressed powders for face and body, and they work with mineral powders, blushes, contour powders, and highlighters.
A few general details about these brushes:
The Pro Large Finishing Powder Brush is a nice big fluffy brush for loose finishing powder. It’s flatter than some finishing powder brushes – I have a few that are like big round balls that are fun, but they certainly don’t travel well. This one does the job and is a little more practical. I like how it’s soft enough to make you super sensitive folks happy, but firm enough to hold onto that powder so it’s not flying around the room and up my nose, making me cough and sneeze all over.
The Pro Multitasker Powder Blush Brush is a favorite because it is a great mulitasker. It’s wonderful for blush, highlighter, contour, mineral foundation…this baby does it all, and does it all well! It blends and buffs like a dream. Love it.
The Pro Setting Powder Brush gets the least amount of play from me. Don’t get me wrong, it’s nice…but it’s not really a necessity. This is meant for applying loose powder over concealer under the eye to set the concealer and prevent creasing. Nice, but…not really necessary. Beauty Junkees also recommends spraying the bristles with some setting spray then dabbing under the eye to really guarantee no creases.
Overall, this is a terrific set. I would pay the $20 for the Large Powder Brush and the Brush Blush alone anyway, and the zippered case is wonderful. I love my set and I can’t wait to read what Marcia thinks about her set tomorrow! – Lisa
