Sleek MakeUP Brush Set Review

This was provided to me by a brand for review but all opinions expressed are my own

Sleek MakeUP Brush Set

The new Sleek MakeUP Brush Set ($19.49) is an essential set of 7 travel brushes that come housed in a snap close brush roll. The brushes are a mix of synthetic and natural fibres with fairly soft bristles.

Take a peek!

The Sleek MakeUP Brush Set includes:
Foundation Brush
Powder Brush
Blush Brush
Eyeshadow Brush
Eye Contour Brush
Eyeliner/Brow Brush
Lip Brush

This a cute essential selection of brushes that’s lightweight and travel friendly. The brushes themselves are very light with sturdy handles and soft bristles. They held up well through three washings without shedding and still maintains their shape when dry. The pouch they come in is an easy fold snap to close case that’s virtually weightless and takes no room up in my purse should I wish to travel with these.

I was a little iffy on the brush heads as they are kinda smallish so you can only do very basic work with them. For example the eyeshadow brushes have very short hair. This is great for doing precise work but could prove a bit challenging when using them for more intricate eye looks. This holds true for the face brushes as well! These are very travel size friendly but prove difficult to use to apply more than powder with! I need a longer bristles and something fuller to apply blush with.

If you’re traveling the Sleek MakeUP Brush Set might be a good way to go especially at the under $20 buck price tag but I have to admit Sephora has some great brush sets that are superior for a few dollars more.

It’s a nice set but very, very basic.

It’s available now at sleekmakeup.com.

Already own it?

What are your thoughts on the set?

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.

    Hi Muse!

    I hope you’re enjoying your vacation. You deserve it! 🙂

    How do you think these brushes compare to the elf brushes? My kit has a few fancy brushes but mainly a lot of cheapie brushes because I’m lazy about washing my brushes and sometimes I abuse them with cream and gel products.

      Hi Cat!
      It was great thanks! 🙂 I’d say the studio brushes from elf are nicer than these. hope this helps!

    Hey,

    I just bought this set and I’m kind of new to this.
    Can you tell me what each brush is used for? For example, I don’t really know which one is the powder brush or the blusher brush, or the eye contour brush etc.

    I hope you understand my question 🙂

    • Isabella Muse

      Hi gigi how are you? Sure here’s a break down:
      Foundation Brush (to use with creams, liquids, bb creams)
      Powder Brush (for use with loose powders to set foundation)
      Blush Brush (to apply blush)
      Eyeshadow Brush (apply eyeshadow on the lid)
      Eye Contour Brush (for eye crease, blending into the crease)
      Eyeliner/Brow Brush (for applying eyeliner/applying brow gel)
      Lip Brush (for use with gloss/lipstick)

      Hope this helps!

  • Gigi
