Guess what? These brushes are made with REAL unicorn hair! Yeah, no. As much as we want "real" ingredients in our food and beauty products, I actually prefer synthetic bristles to actual brush hair just because I feel they are a bit lower maintenance in terms of cleaning them and keeping them free of bacteria. It also means that I can have brushes that look like THIS. This 7 pcs Unicorn Makeup Brushes Set from BeautyBigbang is the price of two tall caramel macchiattos and they are among the prettiest brushes I own. Almost immediately after I instagrammed storied these brushes, I made a place for them on my now VERY full makeup counter because these babies were getting used right away!
This 7pcs unicorn makeup brushes set is currently on sale for $11.43 CDN and is intended for use for a variety of makeup products namely foundation, blush, powder and eyeshadow. I am not a makeup whiz at all and honestly, when it comes to brushes for the face I only really use a blush and fluffy shadow brush.
Of course, what really makes these makeup brushes shine are the metallic ombre brush handles! The colour seems pretty solid as I tried to scratch off the finish and nothing budged. They seem well connected to the ferrule, but I suppose time will tell as I wash these as I have had brushes come apart after a couple of washes.
The actual hairs are SUPER soft which is usually the case when it comes to synthetic brush hairs and I also like the purple tips because it hides how dirty your brush may be. I'm so lazy when it comes to cleaning them. I clean my brushes maaaybe bi-monthly and as perfect as a snowy white brush can look, the moment it comes into contact with makeup, we get sad!
Final verdict: I was already impressed before using the Unicorn Makeup Brushes Set just based on the way they felt and appearance, but the fact that these are actually decent brushes for such a low price makes me love them even more. BeautyBigbang also has those popular brushes shaped like roses and with mermaid tails so now that I know the quality of these ones, you can bet I will be grabbing another set!
