VERY soft and did not pick up one bit of product! I was pleasantly surprised with these brushes as I had never used oval brushes before. Since they were a relatively new company, I did not think they would be exact duplicates of the ever-so-famous Artis brushes (and ever so EXPENSIVE)
These blew my mind away! They are very sturdy, soft, and blended out my product in seconds. The only cons I have were the fact they did not come in a carrying case (but that is my personal preference) ***CLAIRE ALSO CONTACTED ME, they typically come in a case but these did not for some reason so disregard that message in my video! The paint was chipped off around one of my brushes upon arrival, but I can easily overlook that due to the quality of the brushes and the fact... they were pink and SPARLKLY!
The other downside is that they do not have numbers ON the brushes, but the website does list each number and function of the brush (which I unfortunately missed when doing the video review! That diagram will be listed in the next bullet point.
They are CRUELTY FREE, which is my new requirement with makeup products and brushes, so you can feel good about buying this brand!
***if you watched the video, I DID try to apply less concealer and blend out with the oval brush and it WORKED! I am saving about 50% of my product now that I have switched from the beauty blender to the beau claire oval brush. Occasionally I will still clean up with my beauty blender if I put on too much product, and I will go in to get the concealer right into the corner of my eye, but using this brush is saving me SO much money and I hopefully won't have to buy concealer for a while ;)
They are fantastic face brushes, however I do not exactly see how these would work for my eyes. Below I've attached a diagram of how the brushes should be used and applied:
I did not use every brush this way, I used the few eye shadow brushes more for a nose contour and they worked out perfectly for me!
I also believe it would be difficult to get the eyeliner brush to apply smoothly. I also do not know of any eyeliner that comes in a big enough container to use on your brush unless it is gel liner.
The eye brow brush, however, has a great potential to work in that function. I have not tried it but it is fairly similar to the shape of other eyebrow brushes. I shall give them a try!
GREAT price for the amount and quality of brushes in the pack! These are fairly cheaper than many of the other oval brushes on the market today, ESPECIALLY the artis brushes (This is $63 for 10 brushes, versus ONE brush for $63 from Artis)
***Claire Love also gave me a coupon code to share with you guys, use code "battle4beauty" at check out to get €20 (or $21.31) off your order, so it's even cheaper!\
I am EXTREMELY pleased with this brush set and would recommend it to anyone. If you want to try oval brushes, this is the brand to get for the quality and the price.
Thank you again to Claire Love and the Beau Claire Oval Brushes team for sending me these products :) I'm a huge fan and will be forever grateful for the belief you have in my beauty blog :)
