revlon 2016 brush collection review 

These brushes came out this year and I have never had the I want this reaction so immediately before. The design is absolutely flawless. Like Louboutins crossed with diamonds. Revlon teamed up with BMW for the design so I’m guessing luxury was what they were leaning towards and… they definitely achieved that.

I was so enamoured by the design that I did have plans to buy the entire set, but while travelling in Sydney I spotted a 3 for 2 deal at Priceline and decided to just test out three before I committed and I’m very glad that I made that decision.

I got a powder brush, a contour brush and a foundation brush.

The foundation brush is great, it has sleek synthetic bristles and is easy to use and easy to clean. There’s no ferrule to worry about and the bristles don’t cling to foundation like other brushes do. 
All of the brushes are beautiful to look at and weighted well so they feel good in the hand. The powder and the contour brushes have a round base so they’re well shaped and they have good density. Unfortunately my praise stops there.

These beautiful brushes unfortunately shed like crazy. The bristles are not that soft and they feel cheap to the touch. Coming at this from a makeup artists perspective, the last thing you want is to give your model the final powder up and then be following her picking little hairs off her face.

All in all, I’m glad I got a couple to try before I dropped my money on the full set because I am sorely disappointed in the quality of the brushes. 10/10 for design, 3/10 for quality (and that 3 is mostly for how well balanced they are). 

Has anyone tried the other brushes in the set? I would love to know how the rest of them hold up. Leave me a comment with your thoughts!


As always, this blog post is entirely my own personal opinion and I do not represent anyone or anything .
