Round-up: Make Up For Ever Artisan Eye Brushes

Now that I’ve concluded my reviews for Make Up For Ever’s new Artisan Brush range, it’s time for a round-up (in case you missed any) and a few overall impressions/thoughts. I like the variety in brushes, as there are numerous shapes and sizes to choose from, though I was very disappointed in the crease brushes I tried as they weren’t practical for applying–very sharp, floppy, and narrow. Often, a brush can still be of high quality, even if it’s not a shape that makes sense for me (or someone else), but these were incredibly odd to use and just didn’t work. I also experienced a weird greasiness/oiliness that lingered in 4 of the 12 brushes I tested that would not rinse out with soap, despite washing all at least a dozen times. This is something I experienced with the face brushes, too, and it is the number one factor for why all the excitement about this range was deflated very quickly. I liked the #250 and #260 eyeliner brushes best, as they worked well and didn’t have any issues.  The #300 Lip Brush was also nice and did all that it was supposed to, but it’s not a style of brush I use every day personally–and it doesn’t feel any better (or worse) than a lot of other lip brushes on the market.
