REVIEW // Makeup Brushes from CN Direct
|Makeup Brushes: c/o CN Direct|
|White-Gold Set - $3.59|
|24 Piece Kit - $5.69|
Not gonna lie, when I opened up the bag that contained these brushes, I sniffed them suspiciously.
How could these gorgeous makeup brushes from Hong Kong be so cheap and look so nice? Would my face melt off if I used them?
I'm always slightly nervous when I get products sent to me from overseas, as I'm sure we've all dealt with cheaply made items that fall apart way too easily. What I've found from personal experience is that's usually the case when it comes to clothing items ordered from such sites. No matter how cheaply priced, it is never worth it if you can't even use the product you bought. If you're anything like me, you part very reluctantly with money (and yet it keeps happening).
However, I've been pleasantly surprised by accessories from this company, so when I stumbled upon their makeup section, I figured: "What the hell? Let's give them a shot!"
Now, I know that if I wasn't receiving these products as compensation for blogging about them, I'd be plenty nervous about actually ordering them. However, that's why these reviews get written.
I wouldn't want you to waste your money on something I said was good!
I used these brushes right after shooting these photos, and my word...I can't stop rubbing them on my face. Seriously, how do they get these brushes so soft??
I used at least four of the eye brushes to apply a simple yet layered eyeshadow look, and I love having so many options to choose from! Although, if you follow me on Snapchat (the_dragonfruit), you would've gotten a sneak peek of these and my bewildered reaction to having so many brushes in front of me. Seriously, how do I use them all??
*Googles makeup brushes and all the different types and what they're used for
The varying shapes of the brushes are perfect for blending, applying thin strokes, and angled just perfectly for getting to the crease. I used a stippling brush from the white-gold line to set my face, and it applied my powder perfectly (and again, was so soft!). No wonder people pay so much for these! They really give you that professional makeup feel and look.
However, you won't have to pay an arm and leg if you go through CN Direct - both of these sets come to a total that's under $10! Insane, isn't it?
Now, I know that if I was you, I'd be wondering "Yeah, but what's the shipping cost make it?"
Okay, okay, smarty pants. You're right, you can't forget shipping!
So I checked, and for them to ship it to my location, the grand total would be: $17.22
That's for both of those brush sets including shipping.
So whether you decide to check them out for yourself or not, keep CN Direct in mind if you're looking to amp up your makeup brushes! These are phenomenal and get a 5/5 rating from me!
Have a safe weekend everyone!
