Another post today that I’ve been excited to share! I have been looking into getting some new make up brushes for a while now but as moneys tight with the holiday in 3 weeks plus the cost of a kit and uniform for college, I decided instead of going out and spending loads on high end brushes, I’d try the Coastal Scents 22 Piece Brush Set. It was only £33.99 (on offer from £45.00) on Amazon view here. They arrived super fast and on the day they arrived I was so excited I actually nearly screamed when the postman put them through my letterbox haha!
The brushes are in a faux-leather roll which has lots of room and even a zip passage inside which you could use to store small items in to carry with you. All the brushes are super soft and feel like really good quality, I’m impressed. I don’t keep them in the case I have put them into a pot with my other make up brushes and they look really good and worth a lot more than the price I had paid.
|Soo many brushes!|

The first, and biggest brush in the set was the fan brush. I’m not really into fan brushes but I have used it a couple of times to apply powder or brush off loose make up cos it’s so soft it’s unreal!
Powder Brush: I use this as it says in the name; applying powder. Its super soft and could be used for finishing powder, bronzer, blusher etc. It’s defiantly one of my favourite brushes in the set.
Flat stippling brush: All I can say is that it’s super soft and I use it for loads of different reasons such as finishing powder, blush, bronzer.
Angled blush brush: I tried using this to contour my cheeks- even though it says blush brush- but I found it didn’t pick up enough product which I was disappointed with as I was so impressed by all the other brushes.
Round powder brush: I like this brush, again it’s super soft and lovely to use for applying powder.
Foundation brush: I haven’t used this yet as I don’t really use foundation brushes I use my Real Techniques Stippling Brush as this gives me such an airbrushed flawless finish to my foundation.
I’m not going to review these brushes individually as they all have the same similar use on the eyes and one on the lip plus I haven’t really had much chance to try them all out but again they’re super soft and feel lovely and the ones I have used have been great. I’m excited to get to use them to create some new looks and hopefully start posting some tutorials on here as I have photographed a couple different styles I’ve done on my live model aka my sister, Becky. The detailed concealer brush has to be one of my favourites as it’s small enough to get into small hard to reach places. The brow bushes get used the least by me as I prefer to use pencils for a more precise line which I can blend enough to look natural.
Same as above, I haven’t had much chance to really use these brushes but the dome shadow brush is great for adding colour into the crease. The doe foot blender is so great at blending colours out to give that lovely blended look that’s not too harsh yet still noticeable.
Overall these brushes are brilliant for beginners and even people who want some good quality and affordable brushes. I would defiantly purchase them again, in fact I am going to buy another set for when I’m doing clients make up as there’s such a variety and all the basics you need. If you want more detailed images and reviews then feel free to comment. Sorry for the over use of ‘super soft’ but trust me they really are. I would defiantly recommend buying them.
