So I heard a ton about the company and I started following them on Instagram ://instagram.com/RccosmeticsNot long after that I went on their site and made a purchase. Full cart...Visa...South Boston... ORDERED. Ahahaha. No seriously though. I had heard so many awesome things about them and I was too excited to get my hands on some. I heard they were comparable to Sigma and MAC brushes. WHAT?! Nuff said! We all know how expensive MAC brushes are, and though Sigma are a close comparison at a cheaper price they are still a little too much for me to feel good about buying them. I know the tools are just as important as the product, but damn. I don't know..... I just can't justify it. If I have any MAC or Sigma brushes, it's because they were a gift because that's the only way I'll be happy to have either. As fast as I ordered you'd think I would be just as fast to open them. But like I said, I have a problem with shopping faster than I can actually get to use my things. Anyhow, I finally got around to running my hands through them today and I'm in love and just hoping I'll still be in love after I use them.
What I got:
The 12 Piece Professional Makeup brush set $17.95
The Premium 4 Piece Synthetic Kabuki brush set $19.95
The 4 Piece Face Synthetic brush set $9.65
Can you believe those prices? The price of one set will get you a Sigma brush and double the price of one set and you've got a MAC brush! + + + +
Smell - Like paint or paint thinner. A smell I'm super familiar with because My apartment gets painted almost once a year. Actually (just took a sniff) that might even be a bug spray smell. Urg! That could easily just be the stuff it's packed with to keep moisture out. But still...urg! Lol
Look - They're beautiful, with the exception of one brush. I'm not quite sure what it would be used for....maybe a lip brush. We'll see.
They are so pretty with matte black and silver handles and the brush fibers have a pretty dark grey color with light grey tips or brown color with white tips. Gorge.
The bristles on these brushes make me want to sit and just brush myself non stop. They are so smooth, they just melt on your skin! Love!
They are also very dense! I can already tell how well they are going to perform with applying foundation, contouring and concealer application! OMG, I'm already excited (just tapped a brush on my hand)!
Shedding - So far...none! I can see a few hairs that are longer than the rest so I'm not sure if it's just that or future shed. We'll see after I wash them.
Royal Care Cosmetics Pro Brush Sets: B++ pending use
