Uspicy 32 Piece Brush Set

Monday, April 20, 2015
I am a bit of a makeup and makeup brush hoarder, I always need more! I have already reviewed a brush set from Uspicy (here) and I really liked it although the quality wasn't amazing; however this new set is amazing! I have the massive *Uspicy Complete 32 Piece Essential Makeup Brush Set With Travel Pouch (£39.99) and I've been loving it. 

Lets get the negatives out of the way, I personally don't like the faux crocodile effect on the pouch and the brush set contains sponge tip applicators which I am not interested in using at all and I don't find them to be useful. Also there seem to be a lot of the same types of brushes and there is only one brush that I could use for foundation in the whole set. 

In the set there are severn face brushes, three of which would be great for powder including two fan brushes - I have wanted to try a fan brush for a while and the massive fan brush in this set is fantastic for powder and contouring as it is quite thin and fits into the hollow of my cheeks well. The fan brushes are also great for removing fall down. The other three would be great for blush, powder, contouring and bronzer as they are all quite similar. The last face brush is a small, fairly dense brush which is great applying foundation to give light coverage. All of the face brushes are incredibly smooth, soft and they don't pull the skin. Unlike the previous set I have reviewed, there is no gap between the ferrel and bristles so the quality of this new set has definitely improved!

Now onto the eye brushes...there are ten brushes that I would describe as flat shadow brushes, at least four that could be eyeshadow smudging brushes, four lip brushes, two 'nose contouring' brushes and a thin liner brush. There are also two sponge applicators, a lash/brow brush and a spoolie. Yes, thats a lot of brushes and there are no fluffy blending brushes. I feel as though I will get so much use out of all the brushes, they are really smooth/soft and the quality is fantastic but there are so many brushes that are similar; I wish there were fluffy blending brushes or more liner brushes. 

Overall, I have been using the face and some of the eye brushes a lot since I received this set. The quality is so much better than the previous set I reviewed. The brushes are SO soft/smooth, easy to use, effective and so far they haven't shed but I am yet to wash them. My overall rating so far: ★★★★☆ 4/5 - one star off as a lot of the brushes are repeats/similar. 


Have you tried any brushes from Uspicy? What are your favourite brush brands?

  3. This looks like a great set. Like you, I wouldn't be interested in the sponge tip applicators (why does anyone even make these anymore??!!). However, i don't mind that there are lots of the same kinds of brushes as I try not to use the same brush over again. Pity about the lack of fluffy blending brush but overall, sounds like a great set :) xx
