Every year during the holidays, I make sure to drop by MAC stores. This is because it is only in MAC’s Holiday Collection that they release palettes and brush sets.
They always run out of stock so quickly so I never got to get a set for myself… until I received it as a present this year from mom and dad! (Thank youuu!)
Make it Perfect Brush Kit/Essential
What’s the big deal about it? One individual MAC Brush never goes below P1200. I got my MAC 217 Brush (MAC’s most popular eyeshadow brush) for around P1870. Waiting for the brush kits is always worth it because you get five brushes for around P3400 to P3800. The only real difference is that the handles are shorter. And that’s not such a bad thing at all.. It’s easier to lug around and they’re even special edition ones.
The Essential kit to me is the most functional. It has everything I’ll need for my everyday makeup. A foundation brush (190 SE), a powder/blush brush (129 SE), a soft fluffly angled eyeshadow brush (275 SE), a crease/blending eyeshadow brush (226 SE) and an small angle brush perfect for creating precise lines both on the brows and the eyelids (266 SE). The clear kit that comes along with it is also a big plus. I like all my small makeup kits clear so it’s easier to find stuff and I wouldn’t have to dig around and take everything out each time I need something while I’m on the go.
266 SE Small Angle Brush
For creating sharp, precise lines. This brush has fibres which are carefully arranged to form a perfect angle
129 SE Powder/Blush Brush
All-purpose for blush or face powder. This brush is particularly good for blush application. The fibers are soft and form a full, rounded shape.
275 SE Medium Angled Shading Brush
For applying and blending eye shadow. This brush has soft, smooth fibers and a full, angled design.
190 SE Foundation Brush
Pro-quality. A foundation brush designed to create a smooth, even finish, flawless look. Works well with any M·A·C foundation, including Studio Fix and Studio Tech. Use to apply, distribute, and blend foundation into all areas in the face.
226 SE Small Tapered Blending Brush
The thinner and more tapered version of the 224 Tapered Blending Brush which is a for controlled eye shadow application.
Mom also got me these brush protectors from Suesh! Perfect to keep the bristles in place!
