Some of you may recall my free basic makeup lesson from Suesh at their Greenhills store last February that I posted here.
There I got to meet makeup artist Suzanne Tan for the second time.
At the end of the event, the ladies behind Suesh Makeup Toolkit handed us their new (at the time) brush set for smokey eye to the two of us who were bloggers there.
Finally, I get around to using it.
it's a four piece set.
1.) the C-all over eye shadow brush. a really thick and packed brush for patting on and blending out eye shadows. before washing this brush was stiff and scratchy to the point of prickly. BUT AFTER WASHING, it was gloriously soft! not scratchy and was even able to apply something as creamy as my lunasol shadows pretty well. (i'll tell you, again, why you shouldn't use brushes for the lunasol eye pallets when i feature them on this blog).

- super soft brushes! looks are deceiving indeed, they looked ordinary and looked scarily scratchy, but after washing the animal haired ones were divinely soft!
- handles were not too long, just as long as the one dollar white handled brushes from elf (eyes lips face)
- great for travel
- convenient, comes with a case
- the ferrules were securely attached to the handles or stems, so no wiggling of the stems from the metal thing that holds the bristles in place
- locally available in at least 3 strategic locations around the metro
- also available online in case those 3 locations are still too far or inconvenient for you to go to
- they don't stink, yep, after one washing i no longer detect the usual goat's butt smell of animal haired brushes, hahaha prolly cuz they aint goat hair? it's possible they are horse or squirrel hair. basta, no stink after washing
- effective in picking up even the finest of pigment or shadows
- none, the animal haired ones shed a bit during their first bout with washing but that's normal. there was one or two bristles that flew off while i was applying my shadows, but that's kinda normal, too. and that has not recurred.
Do i recommend - yes, they are worth the trip i made to greenhills that day.
