High-quality makeup brushes aren’t cheap. Or so we thought, until we came across this $11 set on Amazon.
The 14-piece bundle from the brand BS-MALL has more than 7,000 positive reviews that speak to their quality, softness and flawless application—definitely not something we’d expect at an $11 price point. It totally changed our perspective on what constitutes a good makeup tool.
The set includes five face brushes and nine eye makeup brushes for literally every need you could ever have. Want to try your hand at a smoky eye? There’s an applicator for that. Need to contour your cheekbones? Yup, there’s one for that too. There’s even a spoolie on the end of one in case you need to tame your unruly brows.
And buyers are completely obsessed. “I’ve worked at the Estée Lauder counter and used several high-end brand brushes. I would definitely say these are comparable to high-end brushes. The handles are nice, but don’t feel as fancy as expensive brushes. But the brush itself is soft and feels just as good as the pricier brands,” one beauty expert raves. And considering her experience at the Estée Lauder counter, we totally trust her.
“This is one of the best makeup brush sets I own. There are lots of thick, soft hairs in the brush that help to create a smooth, flawless-looking finish,” writes another reviewer.
One thing to note? According to some buyers, they do come with a strong plasticky odor, but it’s apparently pretty easy to get rid of. “I soaked them in soapy water, then soaked them in clean water to rinse, then let them air-dry and the smell is gone!” one woman explains. Considering it’s always good practice to wash brand-new makeup tools before you use them, it’s kind of a nonissue.
Aside from the amazing price point, we’re also impressed by the four color options. With rose gold, golden black, golden pink and purple variations, there’s bound to be an option that coordinates with your existing collection.
