Like many of you when I started learning makeup, first thing I knew I had to get my hands on was A BRUSH SET. So I went to the local mall and bought one that was available. Then came the Luscious brush sets and after reading many reviews about it being a good set for beginners, I ordered one and here's why I think it's an overrated brush set.

Very practical and has a very neat finish. Solid wood, Let me tell you all, I have washed them repeatedly and I even soak them overnight in shampoo. They always look as good as new when washed. Plus there are many eyeshadow brushes to choose from. For lid, inner corner, lower eyelid...

Now ... I haven't used them much but when you hold the brushes, the handle feel loose from the main brush. some of mine have given way and are now in two-piece as you can see. Notice the outer coating of the handles, they cracked when I washed the brushes.

Although my camera never gives good results, anyone can see the difference in the bristles. 22 pc powder brush is soft and has less fall-out. Luscious powder brush has harsh/hard bristles, you feel them when you apply powder and you will have powder everywhere by the time you finish. I should have compared it with a shoe brush ;)))

Blending brushes.... My main reason for buying the whole set. Its bristles are a bit widely spaced...say, fan-like. I end up blending everything into one single color! My savior is Mac 217.
|Brush on left side is worth Rs. 100.|
LUSCIOUS BRUSHES WORTH USING:
- Smudge brush.
- Angled lip brush.
- round shader brush.
So that's what I think about my Luscious deluxe diva 12 pc brush set. Maybe I am the only one who had problems with the set... Anyways my Sigma brush set is on it's way and I'm eagerly waiting.
Hope you liked my post :)
Love you all,
