Borghese Pro Brush Set Review. Available at Costco!

Borghese   Professional Select Cosmetic Brushes Set   10 Premium Brushes & Brush Bag

I have been hearing and reading a lot of great reviews on the Borghese pro brush set from Costco.  I was very curious at the quality and at a price of $29.99 for 10 brushes and a brush bag, I thought I woud give it a try.  I have used it for about 2 weeks and washed it twice. 

The set includes:

1. Powder kabuki brush – LOVE!!! So soft!

2. Angled contour brush – reminds me of MAC 168.  Great contour brush.

3. Duo-Fiber blending brush – great for light application of blush or foundation.

4. Round foundation brush – LOVE!  It is not your typical flat foundation brush.  I love that it is round and dense.  Great for liquid foundation. 

5. Concealer brush – just another concealer brush.  I prefer to use a brush like MAC 224 for concealer instead of a brush like this.  I use mine for lipstick placement.

6. Eye powder fluff brush – for a blending brush, it is very large.  I prefer to use it for the face instead of the eyes.  I use it for highlighting.

7. Eyeshadow brush – also very large but great for product placement.

8. Angle eye contour brush – great crease brush.

9. Domed smudge brush – I usually use smudge brush to blend out eyeliner for a smoky look but in my opinion this brush is too large.  You can use this brush for blending in the crease.

10. Angle eye/brow brush – great eyebrow brush.

11. Brush bag – an okay bag to carry your brushes.  The kabuki brush will not fit in the bag.

Here are some pros and cons:

Pros –

1. The handles are beautiful – I love that it is pewter instead of silver.

2. The brushes are soft.

3. So far no shedding.

4. Value – $29.99 at Costco,  I ordered mine online and shipping were free.

5. Pick up products really well.

Cons –

1. Chemical smell – clean them really well before use.  I clean mine with a mix of antibacterial Dawn and olive oil. 

For the value and the quality, I definitely recommend these brushes.
