Brush(es) with Greatness...continued.
A couple months ago my friend, Geoff, contributed to this site with reviews of some of his favorite LUSH products. Today, Geoff is back to talk brushes, offering an even more affordable/accessible option for those of you who are short on money and live far away from shopping civilization!
Everyone loves Target. From their cute, affordable designer clothing to their darling stationary sets, Target stores prove that you can be chic on the cheap. Geoff devels into Target's beauty aisles, discussing the exclusive Sonia Kashuk cosmetic brushes.
I just wanted to piggyback on your previous post about drugstore beauty, which was super informative and enjoyable, and then also fill everyone in on great product I’ve recently discovered.
First off, I think when you’re a product whore (like we are), it’s easy to shirk off other beauty essentials, like accessories and brushes. Personally, I don’t have too many quality brushes, but as I’ve acquired some in the past few weeks, I’ve come to realize how important a good brush is to a flawless makeup application.
A great introduction to quality brushes and a nice compromise between really expensive brushes and really cheap ones is the Sonia Kashuk brush line at Target. All of Sonia’s brushes are relatively cheap and they are unquestionably the highest quality brush line on the drugstore market.
One of my favorites is the Contoured/Angled Eye Shadow Brush, which is awesome for defining brows. And it’s a steal at $9.99. The bristles are silky— sable hair I think— and they deposit tons of pigment.
The ergonomic handle is more helpful and comfortable than you would think, and the design is much more attractive than any of Kashuk’s other Target brush lines."
Thanks, Geoff! : )
I haven't tried any of the the Sonia Kashuk brushes, but my little sister bought a powder/bronzer brush from her line last winter before our trip the Bahamas and the bristles were extremely soft and the application seemed even and glowy. I'll definitely have to look in to trying some of these brushes!
Have you tried any of these brushes? What do you think? How do they compare to their more expensive and less expensive counterparts?
