Hauled It: Essence of Beauty Brushes

I had to go to CVS yesterday to hunt and peck through scary drugstore makeup to locate the Maybelline foundation I was babbling about yesterday. On my quest I couldn’t resist plopping some more Essence of Beauty Brushes in my cart.


Jump ahead for haulage pics!

I don’t normally like cheap brushes but I must say that these always impress. I ended up picking up the travel size kit and a two brush shadow duo set. I think both sets cost me $15 USD or so? Not too bad a price for seven brushes total. Hi cheap brushes the Muse likey you very much.


Although I wasn’t as pleased with the travel set as I was with the shadow duo set. The brushes seemed a bit more dense and harder than the normal Essence brushes I’ve picked up but none the less they were good aside from that. If you’re looking for some inexpensive, budget friendly brushes I’d totally recommend these as they are the best I’ve personally come across. I’m a MAC brush girl all the way but I can’t deny that the next best thing if I’m looking to save a buck or two would be snagging yourself some of these bad boys.

Check your local CVS for the selection.

Loves ’em and even slapping a Muse Approval on ’em for purchase!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse. If you’re that person feel free to reach out and leave a comment.

    I just picked up the travel set today, Muse, to supplement my Bobbi Brown Mini Delux Brush Set -I have the 2009 edition with the similar natural wood handles. Fits perfectly!

    I just purchased this set today, Muse, to supplement my 2009 (I think) Bobbi Brown Deluxe Mini Brush Set, which also has the natural wood handles. Fits perfectly.
