OVAL MAKE UP BRUSHES – WORTH THE HYPE? | My Make Up Brush Set

A month and a half ago a brand called My Make Up Brush Set sent me the Oval Brush 10 Piece Set to try it out and see how I like them! I was quite excited – this is extremely affordable version of original Artis make up brushes and they are so popular right now. But are they worth all the hype?


Oval brushes are a new hit! They appeared in the beauty world last year and in this moment, there are tons of oval make up brush sets being sold all over the Internet by different brand and under different labels.  I was personally very satisfied with my Zoeva Bamboo Brush Set (read the review) but I was happy to try out this set and see what is there so different in the oval shape!

The set that I got from My Make Up Brush Set is a cheaper version (25$) of original oval brushes by Artis and it came in a little soft pouch bag with all the brushes packed in. I have to say that I prefer brushes in the box or some more practical packaging but they were protected and at one place which is enough. Each brush is protected with a foil but it made it a bit difficult to recognise since there are no labels/ numbers on them.

There are 10 brushes in the set and according to the product description, they are quite multi-purpose.  I didn’t really follow the directions too much but just used them how I felt they would work with each product.

The hair is quite soft on big brushes, very dense and stiff enough to apply the product, they blend products into the skin successfully and I’ve been loving them. The hair doesn’t fall out either which is a great plus! Smaller brushes meant for eye shadow, eyebrows or lips are for me too hard to use. They don’t really pick up the product how I expected and it is very hard to hold and position them. So, while I still frequently use the bigger brushes for foundation, contouring and blush, I hardly ever use smaller brushes because it takes me too much time.

ARE THEY WORTH THE HYPE?

I believe it all comes down to what you are used to and how much are you willing to change your routines. Bigger brushes do the job and are absolutely functional and fun to use. I still prefer regular shape of the brush tho. I don’t see much of a difference in application or blending compared to the regular shape drugstore brushes of similar price but I definitely think they are better quality when it comes to the “hair” part than Essence or Catrice brushes. I am pretty sure I would change my opinion if I would try out the original product, however, this “dupe” version didn’t get me too hyped!

For 25$ I think this set is not a bad deal for someone who is just starting out, trying out new stuff and doesn’t want to spend a lot of money on high quality products because the job can definitely be done with bigger brushes. So, I would actually recommend bigger brushes only and instead choose this set of 5 brushes for 15$!

Ovalni kistovi za sminkanje su novi hit! Pojavili su se u svijetu kozmetike prosle godine, a danas mozete naci mali milijun setova ovalnih kistova koji se prodaju pod raznim brendovima i od strane raznih firmi. Ja sam dosta zadovoljna svojim Zoeva setom (procitaj recenziju), ali sam jedva cekala isprobati ovaj set da vidim sto je to drugacije u ovalnim kistovima!

Set koji sam dobila od My Make Up Brush Set brenda je jeftina verzija (25$) originala ovih kistova i stigao je u mekanoj vrecici sa svim kistovima unutra. Moram priznati da sam malo sretnija kad je kist upakiran u kutijicu ili neko slicno pakiranje, ali kistici su bili zasticeni i na jednom mjestu. Svaka cetkica je bila zasticena folijom, ali ih je bilo tesko razaznati jer na njima nema nikakvog printa ili broja.

10 cetkica, ili kistova, je u ovom setu i prema opisu prozivoda, nekako su multi funkcionalni. Ja se bas nisam drzala tih uputa, nekako sam ih krenula koristiti kako mi je pasalo uz koji proizvod.

Dlaka na vecim cetkicama je stvarno mekana, gusta i cvrsta kad se nanosi proizvod, a isto tako fino blenda proizvode u kozu tako da sam s tim bila stvarno sretna! Dlaka ne otpada sto je prilican plus za ovu cijenu. Manje cetkice namijenjene za oci, obrve ili usne su za mene prekomplicirane za koristenje. Ne zadrzavaju proizvod kako sam ocekivala i nekako ih je tesko drzati i pozicionirati. Tako da, dok vece cetkice koristim i dalje najcesce za puder, konturiranje i rumenilo, male cetkice zapravo uopce ne koristim jer mi treba sto godina da dobim ista s njima.

JESU LI ZAISTA TOLIKO DOBRI KOLIKO SU RAZVIKANI?

Vjerujem da sve ovisi o tome na sto ste navikli i koliko volite isprobavati nove proizvode i mijenjati rutinu. Velike ovalne cetkice definitivno funkcioniraju i zabavne su za koristenje. Medjutim, ja i dalje preferiram normalan oblik. Ne vidim previse razlike u nanosenju ili bledanju ako usporedjujem s normalnim cetkicama slicnog cjenovnog ranga, kao Essence ili Catrice, ali je sama kvaliteta cetkice bolje, pogotovo dlaka. Mislim da bih svakako bila vise odusevljena da sam isprobala origial od Artis brenda, a ovako, ova jefitinija verzija me nije pretjerano odusevila.

Za 25$ mislim da ovaj set nije losa opcija za nekog tko pocinje sa sminkanjem, isprobava nove stvarcice i ne zeli potrositi vecu svotu na proizvode visoke kvalitete. Definitivno se s ovim cetkicama mozete nasminkati bez problema (iskljucujuci male cetkice). Zato bih zapravo preporucila set koji se sastoji od 5 vecih cetkica za 15$!

    1. I honestly think it really depends on the quality brushes. These are very cheap but foundation brush definitely does the job! Also depends on what kind of the quality you are used too :) I am using Zoeva usually and this is far away from it but if the price range would be the same, I guess they would be pretty good :) <3

  2. Someone has been trying to send me something similar but I’m not sure how legit it is. I am intrigued by the round brushes. They look sort of vintage to me. https://fairygodmotherbeautyblog.com/

    1. I honestly checked if they are a company and they are so maybe that’s what you should do! I totally agree with the vintage vibe, they look kind of as a throwback to 20s :) however, I think a lot depends on the quality. :) :* <3
