The ₱350 21-piece Unicorn Make-up Brush Set: A Review

Upon ordering, the Unicorn Make-up Brush Set has an average user rating of 4.6/5 out of 79 reviews so my expectations were a bit high. Does it live up to the hype? Keep on reading to find out!

As a stay-at-home mom, I seldom go out and if I do, I usually just dab a bit of powder, stain my lips and line my brow. So hindi ko naman talaga kailangan ng make-up brushes. My family has recently been invited to attend a wedding and so I took the opportunity to get myself a new set of make-up brushes and chanced upon this Unicorn set online.

First Impression

I ordered the item April 15 and received it on the 25th. Based on the reviews, it should just take 2 to 3 days to get the item but since I ordered it right before a long Holiday break, understood naman na hindi nila fault yun.

Each of the brushes were individually wrapped. No loose hair anywhere. Brushes were soft and I fell in love with its color! Ang lakas maka-bakla! Haha! If it was meant to resemble a Unicorn’s horn, it surely worked.

Daming plastic!

Test Run

The set is made up of 21 different types of brushes so it was a bit overwhelming. What I did was to group them by their tips’ shape and found there were similar brushes but is of a different size. Parang madaya ah? Char. Nag-google ako to check yung iba ibang klase ng brushes and its use pero di ko pa din talaga difference nila, honestly.

So ginamit ko nalang kung ano madampot ko. The only thing I would note is that too much of the product is left on the brushes, madami siyang na-absorb na product but kaunti lang nata-transfer sa mukha/ skin ko. It also makes the brushes harder to clean after use. I tried using make-up remover, mineral oil and soapy lukewarm water but to no avail.

The Verdict

Is it worth it? For me, no. Mura ang brushes pero sayang ang make-up. Two months after purchase, hindi ko na masyado ginagamit. Display nalang siya.

What makes the other make-up brushes expensive is the type of hair na ginamit for the brush. So I guess it really pays to invest in quality brushes. For this one, you definitely get what you pay for.

Soooo, which brand of make-up brushes would you recommend that’s worth investing on? Let me know in the comments section!
