If you haven't heard of Mikasa Beauty products, GREAT! Because I'm about to give you the lowdown of who they are and what I think of their makeup brushes. In the meantime, be sure to visit their Instagram (click here) and website (click here)
Mikasa Beauty actually reached out to me asking to try their products and give an honest review. Seeing that I LOVE doing reviews I thought, "No harm done." So I purchased the 8-piece brush set - originally $95.00 - ($135 value) with my own money and I was definitely not disappointed!
While some of you may think, "That's a lot of money," Mikasa's price point is cheaper than MAC but has the most comparable (if not, better) quality to them. When my order came in a travel case, I couldn't help but fall in love with everything. The travel case isn't flimsy, it has room for tons of brushes and it's super cute! But let's get to the important part, the brushes...
- F200 - DUO FIBRE FINISHING BRUSH
- F100 - POWDER BRUSH
- F111 - BLUSH BRUSH
- E100 - ANGLED LINER BRUSH (I USED FOR MY BROWS)
- E220 - CONCEALER BRUSH
- E310 - PENCIL BRUSH
- E300 - BLENDING BRUSH
- E230 - EYE SHADER BRUSH
I will note, most of these brushes include natural goat hair and straight synthetic nylon/hair. Sorry, my vegan friends :(
My initial thoughts: The moment I felt the brushes, I knew they were of good quality.
After use: They worked phenomenally! They carried pigment well and blended smoothly.
Here's a quick video of what my average makeup process looks like... and sorry in advance, yesterday could not have gone any worse. I explain some in the video... but there were people working on my roof, I dropped (broke) a lot of my makeup while transferring them from the bathroom to my desk (ay yi yi). However, I wanted you guys to see, as well as you can 😒, how well these brushes work!
Ps. If you're watching from your phone, the video shows better on desktop 😘
The quality is undeniable and even after washing them, they are still as new. I forgot to mention that this is not an AD, Mikasa Beauty is not paying me to make this review. I thoroughly enjoyed purchasing/using their products and I plan on purchasing more from them in the future.
As far as my videos go... Once I get a new memory card I'll be posting better quality videos ;)
