Coastal Scents Pearl Brush Set Review

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

Coastal Scents Pearl Makeup Brush Set

The Coastal Scents Pearl Brush Set is a new 16 Piece Makeup Brush Set that arrives just in time for the Holidays kids! This one packages together a gorgeous brush holder along with 16 beautiful synthetic brushes!

And it won’t break the bank!

Coastal Scents Pearl Brush Set

Ahh the Holidays. The Holidays are always about great makeup sets and even better brush sets. Brush sets are a tempting little morsel for me because even though I have all the brushes I could possibly want or need, well, I still want more. I mean here they are with shiny new handles and pretty little pouches all decked out for the Holidays how can I not be tempted?

This is a great time of the year if your brush collection is a little flimsy and you can’t justify purchasing full size, expensive brushes because favorite brands like MAC, Bobbi Brown, etc end up putting together great Holiday Sets that include several deluxe size brushes at a very low cost.

Coastal Scents always has excellent brush set picks at affordable prices and I admit they ALWAYS surprise me with their quality! I’m not a big lover of synthetic brushes as they tend to not last long for me, wash poorly, or sometimes have harsh bristles. But I never met a Coastal Scents Brush Set I didn’t like!

Coastal Scents Pearl Brush Set are contained in a luxe brush barrel that snaps closed for travel! You get 16 full size brushes (and the brush case) for $49.95 which works out to about $8 per brush (not including the case).

After getting these first thing I did was wash them! After they dried I washed them three more times! And yes, they stood up against a vigorous washing. The bristles went right back to shape, remained soft, and the handles as sturdy as ever.

Each brush has a pearl white handle with silver accents. The handles are beautiful and very Winter-y which makes them a nice gift. I find the bristles soft, shed free, and they applied powder, shadow, and brush beautifully. The Large Fluff Brush is probably one of my favorite brushes of the moment as I’m heavy handed and this is a nice way to dust on blush without over doing things! It’ll also work great for a sheer layer of powder particularly if you have drier skin and want to set makeup but not over do powder which in turn makes it cling to drier areas. The fluff brush tapers out and out with fluffier bristles allowing for powders and blushes to be applied sheer for a natural look! Very nice brush!

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.

    I like the idea of this set for travel… I like to keep a bag of makeup staples that I can just toss in a bag in case I forget anything specific, and this would be the brush version!

    Thanks for the review. I have been looking for some effective, affordable brushes, and these look like they are it.

    Thanks for the review! I found it to be very helpful, but the brushes don’t come out to $8.00 each (as posted). $49.95 for 16 brushes (not including the case), makes them a little more then $3.12 each….so it’s an even better deal! 🙂 Definitely going to have to check these out.
