Earlier this week, Marcia told you about two fabulous IT Cosmetics LE holiday brush sets, ALL THAT SHIMMERS and HEAVENLY LUXE BRUSH SET . Today I have three more options for you – two more travel sets, plus one that isn’t specifically a travel set but it does come in a lovely sparkly bag.samples affiliate links
The first is a terrific basic travel set, the Your Beautiful Basics Airbrush 101 Travel LE Brush Set ($38). This set is exclusive to Ulta. It’s a great basic set with three essential brushes. The zippered pouch is a shiny black patent leather with a cute bow and inside has a pouch on one side and separate storage for each brush on the other side with a cover for the brush heads.
The brushes are called ‘travel size’, but they look full size to me. They are wonderfully soft, yet firm enough to pick up product and get the job done. I like the Airbrush Powder Brush best – it’s amazing for loose powder. Considering this set is an $86 value, I think it’s a wonderful gift for anyone. These are great foundational brushes that will be welcome in any collection!
The second is another travel set – this one comes in a gorgeous silver gift wrapping with a gift tag that says, “Because of you, the world is more beautiful!” Inside is the fabulous Heavenly Luxe 6 Pc Travel Brush Set ($50) available at IT Cosmetics. This set has six brushes – two face brushes and four eye brushes – in a convenient black quilted case. The case is awesome – it protects the brushes and actually flips into a vanity stand. Again, the brushes are called ‘travel sized’ but these aren’t those small, poor quality brushes like MAC puts out – these are full size, full quality brushes with crystal tipped handles.
The only brush I wasn’t sure about was the All-Over Eyeshadow Brush – I just didn’t think I would get that much use from it. However, I am always running late in the morning so I often end up doing a wash of a neutral color and this brush is perfect for it. It’s firm enough to grab just enough eyeshadow and, true to its name, it deposits the eyeshadow beautifully without tugging or uneven spots. It makes hurried application super easy. I think this just might be my favorite set of the three and it’s certainly an excellent travel brush set to have.
The third brush set, Chic in the City ($68), available at Ulta, is a beautifully feminine set that is a whopper of a value – sold separately this would set you back $150. Check out that gorgeous sparkling pink bag with the deluxe soft and fluffy removable pom-pom keychain! This LE 5 piece brush set has powder, foundation, blush, eyeshadow and liner/brow brushes with shimmering ombré rose-gold handles. This is the gift for the girly girl on your list.
This is a truly luxurious set of brushes – super high quality, gorgeous handles, fabulous brush heads, and I love the clutch! Chic in the City is a major winner. This is a one for you, one for me – you will definitely want to get one for yourself before it sells out!
Every year I look forward to the limited edition holiday brush sets from IT Cosmetics, and this year they have done “IT” again with fantastic quality and excellent prices. They are all great gift ideas for teachers, mothers-in-law, daughters, nieces, girlfriends, and of course – yourself! Happy shopping!! – Lisa
