SHANY Professional Cosmetic Brush SetThe Shany Professional Cosmetic 12 piece brush set with vinyl pouch has all the brushes you need for a full makeup application.

This brush set is made from animal hair, the handles are a lovely cherry red color. The vinyl case can come in a range of colors from silver, black, gold, pink, white and purple. You can try and ring the manufacturer if you want a specific color.

This set includes:

  • 2 Blusher brushes 1 large, 1 medium.
  • 1 Fan brush
  • 1 Mascara wand
  • 1 Foundation brush
  • 2 Concealer brushes
  • 1 Angled eyeliner brush
  • 1 Lip brush
  • 1 Brow comb/brush
  • 1 Eyeshadow applicator sponge/brush
  • 1 Eyeshadow brush

Users Conclusions

I have summarized the lists below from the ladies using the makeup brushes:


  • Great value
  • Animal hair
  • Soft bristles
  • Good for travel
  • No bristle fall out
  • Good quality brushes


  • No blending brush
  • Powder brush is small

To Sum Up

The Shany cosmetic brush set has very good reviews overall. Most users find the brushes to be soft and of good quality, they also think the set is very good value for money at $17.99.

There are a couple of users who think the set is not very good quality and find the bristles to stiff for their skin.

I personally think this is a great kit to start with especially for the low price, although I do agree with one user who is disappointed it doesn't contain a blending brush as I consider this quite a vital tool when doing eye makeup.

Bare Escentuals Angled Brow Brush Review | Precision Goat Hair To Fill Brows

Saturday, August 21st, 2010

Bare Escentuals Angled brow brushBare Escentuals Angled Brow Brush is designed for the use of bareMinerals brow color. This arched brush should make it quick and easy to fill brows, leaving them looking natural. It is made from a blend of Taklon fibers and goat hair.

When filling the brows I think it is better to use a angled brush as it is more precise and gives a natural looking brow.

Users Conclusions


  • Quick and easy to use
  • Provides a natural shape
  • Short stiff bristles


  • A little expensive
  • Made from goat hair


This brush is also good for applying powder eye shadow along the lash line as a eyeliner.

To Sum Up

Overall the comments on this brow brush are pretty positive. Most Bare Escentuals fans think it is easy to use and like the stiff short bristles. Some users don't like that it is made from goat hair, they would prefer it to be synthetic.

The price is a little on the high side just for a brow brush at $12, but many users agree that it is a good quality brush.
