MY TAKE ON NYKAA BLENDMASTER OVAL BRUSH SET
Packaging: The brushes come packed in a plastic mould enclosed in a cardboard box. I wish they had a brush holder (keeping in mind the price of this product) along with the set like most of the makeup tool brands. The brushes are of good quality and the bristles are cruelty free and extremely soft.
Types of brushes in the set: The brush set consists of the below 10 brushes-
Powder Oval Brush- This brush can be used to apply a powder foundation or setting powder however I feel this works the best for powder foundation only! you literally need to drag the brush onto your face s while applying setting powder, you might actually end up removing some of your base makeup as well.
Foundation Oval Brush- This brush is perfect for applying liquid, cream or whipped foundation and gives a flawless finish.
Cheek Oval Brush- This brush is perfect for applying cream, powder or whipped blushes. gives a diffused look to your cheeks which looks very pretty.
Contour Oval Brush- This brush is used to blend out the contour (cream/powder). The size is perfect for face and body contour except nose contouring.
Highlighting Oval Brush- This brush is used to apply liquid/cream/powder highlighter on the face. I feel fan brushes work better for powder/pressed highlighters.
Precise Contour Oval Brush- This brush is perfect for contouring smaller areas like nose and jawline.
Eyebrow Oval Brush- Perfect for applying powder or wax eyebrow products without clumping. The brush is easy to shape the brows.
Eyeliner Oval Brush-This brush is great for applying gel eyeliners. might need some practice but once you get a hold of it, you can make perfect bold-winged liners.
Eye shadow Oval Brush- Perfect for blending out eye shadows. This brush makes blending out the corners easy.
Lip Oval Brush- Can be used to apply lipsticks and lip glosses easily. Though, because of the circular shape, you cannot really get a precise line near the cupid’s bow.
My take on the brush kit: I have always used regular makeup brushes and I am super happy to get my hands on the oval brushes which is all over the internet. These brushes have very dense and soft bristles that are closely packed for flawless finish and the plastic body is flexible for easy grip while using the brushes. You might need some time to get used to these brushes though. All the brushes are great but I find using powder brush a bit tough because it simply removes the base makeup as well. The foundation brush gives a very natural finish and is easy to use also because you do not have to get up and dampen your beauty sponge. Also, I feel it gives a bit less coverage as compared to a beauty blender but the finish is amazing! No patchy finish at all. The blush brush too works better than a regular brush since it gives a natural diffused look. The brushes do not have names printed on them which is a con so you need to refer the box for details. Overall, the brushes are great and I give the kit a thumbs up.
