Hauled It: Essence of Beauty Brushes

I had to go to CVS yesterday to hunt and peck through scary drugstore makeup to locate the Maybelline foundation I was babbling about yesterday. On my quest I couldn't resist plopping some more Essence of Beauty Brushes in my cart.

Jump ahead for haulage pics!

I don't normally like cheap brushes but I must say that these always impress. I ended up picking up the travel size kit and a two brush shadow duo set. I think both sets cost me $15 USD or so? Not too bad a price for seven brushes total. Hi cheap brushes the Muse likey you very much.

Although I wasn't as pleased with the travel set as I was with the shadow duo set. The brushes seemed a bit more dense and harder than the normal Essence brushes I've picked up but none the less they were good aside from that. If you're looking for some inexpensive, budget friendly brushes I'd totally recommend these as they are the best I've personally come across. I'm a MAC brush girl all the way but I can't deny that the next best thing if I'm looking to save a buck or two would be snagging yourself some of these bad boys.

Check your local CVS for the selection.

Loves 'em and even slapping a Muse Approval on 'em for purchase!

I love these! I hauled a load of E.O.B. brushes when I was in the states a few years ago and was really impressed with the quality and value. They didn't last long... because I ended up giving them away to a friend who was applying make-up with Q-tips! They're a great starter kit for people starting out with make-up brushes. Bonus points for the nice design and feel of the handles which look like Bobbi Brown brushes.
