Rose Gold Makeup Brushes

Happy Friday! I've been using my new brush set that I got from the Happy Skin Store Opening and showed them in the haul I just did as well. As soon as I got the pictures for them I began playing with all my new goodies and the first that I knew I wanted to use was the brush set. I've been in need of a new brush set for a while and was getting so tired of washing mine over and over. The brush set I was using was from before I even went to makeup school so that meant they were pretty old and it was time to upgrade them. I have been loving everything that is rose gold at the moment and these are exception. They are so pretty and add such a pretty touch to my vanity as they sit there glowing from the lights. So I thought today I would share what my opinion is of them and a review of the Happy Skin Glam Squad Custom Brush Set!


Description (from website): The Happy Skin Glam Squad Custom Brush Set features six professional but petal-soft brushes that give you an expert finish in one sweep. This 6-piece makeup brush set is created from the softest man-made bristles. We opted for superior-grade and animal-friendly synthetic bristles so we keep our furry friends happy, too. All brushes are safe to use wet or dry.

Where to buy: It is available online on their website which do international shipping for all my international readers. As well as Zalora PH and more recently they are now available at Beauty MNL.


The brushes come in this handy case. It is metallic rose gold as well to match the brushes and makes a lovely addition to my vanity. It is pretty sturdy and will be great to transport the brushes in or it is big enough to carry your makeup essentials. It is a hard case and the shape is easy to add into a suitcase if you are traveling. It's padded on the outside and the fabric is strong. I don't think it will be good to carry around in your everyday bag as it is big and can be heavy so displaying it in your vanity like I do and when I am off somewhere that's the time I pack it up and take it with me. There's a fairly good size mirror inside in case you forgot your own and need one for touch ups and this is with you. It has a chocolate brown lining inside and is quite luxurious so the brushes won't get scratched up. Unfortunately there are no slots to place the individual brushes. I thought since the brushes came in this case it would hold the brushes in place. There's a good and bad side since you have more space and can use it for another purpose but also it can't keep your brushes from rolling around and can be knocked around in transport. I don't really mind by it but it would be a nice touch but you can either DIY it or put the brushes in a separate makeup bag and store it inside with some makeup. I really like the design of the case though as the outer part is this rose gold/copper but the zipper and the plaque in the front that says "Happy Skin Glam Squad" is silver to contradict the different metal colors. If it was all rose gold then it would be too much but I like the design and it gives it more dimension.

Packaging
The packaging of this is so pretty even though the main focus is supposed to be the brushes. It comes wrapped in plastic to protect the case and it has a sleeve what explains the brush set. It is a part of the Glam Squad collection from Happy Skin where 4 top makeup artist in the Philippines curated a few pieces to be a makeup artist at home. It explains it on one side of the card, the other side has a mini excerpt of the brushes. On the back of the card sleeve it explains all the individual brushes included. I love the case they come in and it is included when you buy the whole set of 6 brushes.


The brushes sat nicely inside their case. The lovely ladies at the store opened it up fully for me and let me see the brushes and we looked to see if it had any factory defect. They didn't just do it with the brushes but all the products purchase from them. Each brush came individually wrapped in plastic and the two big brushes had clear plastic brush guards on them to keep their shape. I keep those and add them whenever I am not using them to keep them pristine. As you can see very spacious inside and you can add in more brushes if you need.


The Custom Brush Set contains powder, angled flat top, eyeshadow/concealer, crease, eyeshadow blending, and lip brush.All were created to achieve that flawless makeup application. Each one has a different use and all are super soft to the touch. There is no fallout and the bristles all stayed in place so far. I haven't washed them yet but that would put them to the test. I'm not sure if they are cruelty or vegan but I will have to find out and will edit this blog post. The site doesn't say anything. It is dual haired brush and they are super soft and light and the handles are quite easy to handle even though they are shiny and look like they can be slippery. It does get fingerprints and some product powder on them but they are really easy to wipe off with a wet makeup wipe and will look like new again.


They come with three eye brushes and a lip brush. The first is an eyeshadow and concealer brush and I use it has both. It is really good to pack on eyeshadow and to get the whole lid in a few swipes especially if you are going for the pigmented look and want to focus the shadow on one area while packing it on. I'm sure it will work great with pigments as well and glitter to press on the lid. It is also great for applying concealer from pots. I like using brushes to apply my concealer and it really blends it in. This is a perfect size and really does a good job patting it in to gives me a flawless finish. The next is the crease brush. It's been a while since I bought a new crease brush and I should have more as it is so handy and the only tool to give me perfectly blended eyeshadow. It's great with blending any colors in and gives a nice finish and let's me achieve many different eye looks. It is quickly becoming my fave. Next is another eyeshadow brush and i use it for applying eyeshadow and blending it. It is so useful and can get in to blend or apply. Last is the lip brush but I actually haven't used it on my lips yet. I use it on my eyes like the inner corners or to smoke out my lash line and lower lash line to create a smokey eye. It's the perfect size and shape for that. The lip brush actually is quite small in size and has a matching rose gold lid to cover it but you can add the id to the bottom of the brush's handle and it is an extender.


The flat top brush blends and buffs in product well. I have used it for contour and blush but only powder formulas and not cream or liquid. It is really good in blending in my foundation as well so there are a couple purpose. The powder brush is essential for me and I'm always needing a powder brush the most out of all the brushes I use as if I am lazy I just use a powder foundation with full coverage a lot more and use this kind of brush to apply it with. It is really good and can can pick up a lot of product and can blend it in perfectly.

Overall Experience
Overall I love these brushes and it has great value for it's money and amazing quality. I'm extremely happy with this and I do recommend them if you are looking for some essential brushes. For the price of this it is pretty steep but they are fabulous quality and so soft. It gives an outstanding finish and blends extremely well all the products I used with it so far. I mean at first I was scared to use them as they were too pretty to use but it's not just the looks that are impressive but the quality is great as well and does its job. It comes with the essentials and all have a use and it is not a waste like most brush sets. So far these are my go to and I love using them for doing my makeup. Have you tried the Happy Skin Glam Squad Custom Brush Set yet?

My rating is:
I'll give it 5/5 because I love everything about it. It is a great starter brush set and has all the right tools for everyday. I use them everyday to apply makeup and they haven't failed me yet. They are a bit pricey but the quality is so good and they have been doing a great job in blending out my makeup and doing their job. I can totally see me getting my moneys worth and they are super soft too and a bonus they look so pretty too.


That's it for my review of the Happy Skin Glam Squad Custom Brush Set. I love these and they look so pretty on my vanity. I look up every now and then while writing this and just stare at how pretty they are just displayed up there. I honestly want to add rose gold details to my room because of all the rose gold products I've been getting at the moment. I linked a similar version of the brushes above and the blog props in the picture just in case you wanted them as well. So that is it and you found this helpful if you are looking into getting a new brush set then maybe this took your fancy. Have a great weekend lovelies!
