Uspicy 10 Piece Makeup Brush Set

Thursday, March 26, 2015
I was contacted a while ago about reviewing this brush set and as I have a slight obsession with makeup brushes (I always need more!) I obviously said yes straight away! Also I have read a couple of reviews of these brushes on blogs recently and everyone seemed to like them. 

I have the *Uspicy 10 Piece Makeup Brush Set (White, Sale £12.99 - RRP £35.99) which comes in a gorgeous gift box - I think it would make a fantastic present, especially as it is already packaged so nicely. You could definitely re-use the box afterwards which is what I will be doing, possibly for tea lights. 

In the set you receive five large face brushes all of which are kabuki style brushes and you also receive five smaller brushes. The design of the brushes is realy nice in my opinion, I like the white and gold combination. The brushes are not duo-fibre, the tips are just dyed white. The bristles are synthetic which is fantastic as I do not want to use animal hair brushes. The ferrel is aluminium and the handle is wooden. 

All of the brush bristles are very smooth, soft and they feel gentle on the skin. My one problem with them which I noticed when they were delivered is that with some of the brushes there is a gap between the bristles and the ferrel which is fine on a daily basis but when it comes to washing the brushes, water could easily get in and loosen the glue causing the brushes to shed - although having said that, I've washed them a couple of times and none of them have shed!

The large face brushes: my favourite brush from this range is the domed foundation brush which looks like it has a similar shape to the Louise Young LY34 foundation brush but this one is a bit more tapered. I've been using this brush and the rounded buffing brush (which looks very similar to my Real Techniques buffing brush) for my foundation and they are fantastic. 

There are also two angled face brushes, both of which are again kabuki style brushes. They are very similar and I really don't think this brush set needs so many similar brushes. However all of the large face brushes are smooth, soft and effective. 

Lastly, the eye brushes which replicate the large face brushes in shape and appearance; I've been using the domed brush quite a lot for concealer and all of the others either for concealer or blending shadows through the crease as well as powder under the eyes. 

Overall, I think the brushes look great, they perform well and for the price they are fantastic. The quality is fantastic but not as amazing as brands such as Real Techniques, Spectrum Brushes and Crown Brushes, in my opinion. I think this would be a fantastic brush set for someone just starting out with makeup. 


Have you tried these brushes? What is your favourite makeup brush brand?

  9. You can never have too many brushes and this looks like an amazing set, will definitely have to check it out. I would be worried too about damaging the brushes though now that you've mentioned that these is a bit of a gap x
