The It Brushes For ULTA Your Airbrush Masters Advanced Brush Set ($65) is one of several new It Cosmetics Brush Sets that have launched for the Holidays at Ulta.
I’ve actually reviewed two other sets the brand did in collaboration with Ulta recently and was very pleased with both. It Cosmetics does some of the nicest synthetic brushes I’ve had the pleasure of using with strong, sturdy handles and ultra soft bristles.
Recently, as you probably already know, It Cosmetics launched a line of exclusive makeup brushes for Ulta. This is pretty exciting as it’s nice to head to Ulta and pick up not only It Cosmetics but also their brushes.
Let’s take a look at the It Brushes For Ulta Your Airbrush Masters Advanced Brush Set!
The It Brushes For Ulta Your Airbrush Masters Advanced Brush Set includes:
- Blurring Powder
- Soft Touch Blush
- Buffing Foundation
- Bent Liner
- Precision Crease
- Flawless All Over Shadow
The brushes come housed in a faux leather case which has a slot for each brush so you can store or travel with the brushes. There’s also a smaller zippered slot located on the opposite side of the brush portfolio that you can store one or two smaller makeup items in.
At a glance the set is gorgeous. It’s a very nice selection of brushes and each sets you back around $10.80 when you doing the math. As I mentioned above typically It Cosmetics Makeup Brushes are amazing, as many of you will likely agree. Soft, shed-free bristles, sturdy handles, and just amazing professional quality brushes!
Unfortunately, the brushes in this set disappointed. The handles are silver and mirrored, they look gorgeous, but pick them up and they are very light and flimsy compared to the sturdiness I’ve come to know from It Cosmetics. The handles are actually hollow inside which kinda sorta makes me feel like they are slipping from my grasp as I apply makeup. Hmmm…
On the upside, the bristles on all the brushes are super soft on the downside I had a lot of splitting action right out of the box towards the bottom of the brush handle on all three of the face brushes. I did wash all six brushes and they washed well and dried quickly. I tried reshaping the face brushes while they were wet but they still dried split. Sad sigh!
Out of the six brushes I liked the two eyeshadow brushes best but I felt like $65 was too much to spend for such lightweight brushes with quirky bristles. I’m a little surprised as this isn’t the norm at all for It Cosmetics.
Prior to purchasing I would recommend you check out the It Brushes For Ulta Your Airbrush Masters Advanced Brush Set in persont\. You might just like the set but I think you need to feel these in your hands before deciding.
I personally didn’t like the set and would recommend indulging in the It Cosmetics Experience Velvet Blurring Ultimate Luxe Set or even the smaller sized It Cosmetics Your Face & Eye Essentials Travel Brush Set versus this set.
I love ya It but this set disappointed.
