Yes, it’s pricey with short little handles (I prefer ’em long), and the giant plastic gems on the clutch look *hella* cheesy, but DAGNABBIT if these brush heads aren’t softer than a baby’s kiss.
Lancome’s Deluxe Brush Set ($60), one of two Lancome limited edition brush sets for the holidays, makes me wanna shoop!
Brushes on left, clutch on right
From left to right: powder brush, foundation brush, domed blending brush, dual-ended concealer/angled liner brush and flat eyeshadow brush
Deluxe comes with five basic eye and face brushes, complete with a matching clutch. The brushes apply and blend like dreams — good dreams. My favorite, the powder brush, feels more luxurious than cashmere against my skin. I’d wear it like a sweater if I could.
What do you think about the purple brush heads? Cute twist? Don’t they seem edgy yet classy at the same time?
Snug as a bug in a rug!
Six pieces, including the clutch, which works out to $10 each — not nearly as easy on the pocketbook as Sonia’s $20 holiday brush set, but, luckily, they aren’t half bad. Exceptionally soft (the powder brush feels like it’s worth $40 by itself), and I think they look fantastic. Too bad Lancome couldn’t have knocked off a couple of bucks, le sigh. And wouldn’t it be awesome if they came in more colors (hint hint)? Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: B+
