These brushes were given to me by a friend and quite honestly, I've never spent more than $50 on a set of brushes so I was curious about them just based on price point alone. I wanted to see if they were worth the price and now that I've been using them a few months, I would say yes. There is quite a big difference between the inexpensive ones I had before and this much nicer set.
Among the most noticeable differences, were the softness of the bristles and how much better they felt to use. Another big difference was their abilities in application and blending. I use less product because the product is not staying stuck in the brush. My application technique was quite heavy handed, since I was used to cheap brushes. You will definitely notice a difference in how your makeup goes on. Even old makeup, or cheaper products seem to go on much easier and more evenly when using the Hikari brushes. I used to feel very frustrated with blending and watched so many tutorials on how to blend out eyeshadow. I now see that my problem wasn't necessarily my technique, but the tools I was using. Eyeshadow application is much easier with these brushes.
Would I actually purchase some for myself? If I had extra money yes I would. They aren't a super necessity but they are very nice and the quality is very good. I think they will last a long time. I highly recommend them to anyone who loves makeup and wants to use high quality tools.
I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. I laid low and stayed off of social media for the most part.
I just want to appreciate how lucky I am to have brands like hikaricosmetics and int_cosmetics and southmanebeauty send me things. I am a nano influencer and let’s be real...we don’t get much love.
This week I’m going to be trying all of this out! Thank you again Thompson Beauty Brands!
I love when I don’t have to edit photos! These were all taken in natural light.
Happy National Lash Day from my daughter and I. I hope you all have a fabulous weekend!
Be on the lookout for a new challenge! Starting March 1st!
