Askmewhats Revisits: Suesh 28pcs Brush Set

Hi everyone !:)
Thanks for the birthday greetings! My head grew so big over the weekend because of lovely comments and birthday greetings I've received. This is the first birthday I've received a lot of birthday greetings! What a way to start my 30's :)

Now my head has been shrunk back to it's original size lol
Let's get back to business and deal with product reviews :D

I've been doing make-up for quite some time and on some photos, you can see a lovely brush set displayed and some of you noticed it and has been asking about it. I've done a super simple post about it a year ago and you can find it by smiling and clicking here. And now, this is an Askmewhats Revisits post because I've used this long enough to have my final say about these brushes!

Pros

  • very affordable
  • does not shed
  • does not bleed
  • very professional looking
  • brush hairs are soft, doesn't hurt the face
  • the length of the brush is perfect for make-up application to oneself and others
  • this brush set has almost everything you need
  • includes a brush holder!
Cons
  • there's not much CON but he Big Face brushes are too soft and not so dense, so it isn't easy to control



Overall


Almost anyone who's studying in a make-up school buy these brushes. Why? Because they work and they're very affordable. I find that these brushes of course cannot be compared to big brush brands like MAC, Smashbox or Shu Uemura, but for it's price, these brushes are definitely worth it. I like it that the brushes are made with care and quality. The hairs are super soft and most of the clients commented how soft the brushes are.

Tips
  • label your brushes especially if you attend gigs that has more than 1 make-up artist.
  • clean not only your brushes but also the brush holder.
  • never put back a dirty brush on the brush holder, it will stain the brush holder (photo below) put them on separate bag or plastic so you don't end up washing all the brushes again and again
  • for face brushes, since they aren't dense enough, you can use your fingers to press the hair closely together for better control
  • always wash your brushes with care
  • wipe your brush holder with wet wipes

Will I repurchase?

I don't need to, but if I need another set in the future, I wouldn't mind ordering from them again.

Where did I purchase and how much?

Suesh website for Php4,500 (approx $94.00)
for international readers: I'm not sure if they ship internationally, you can go to their site and leave them a query.


Camwhoring time for the brushes! :D

No matter how cheap or expensive your brushes are

  17. i have that set too! it's a really good basic brush set, esp. if you're studying pa lang.
    and you're totally right about storing the used brushes separately! i made that boo boo a couple of times and ended up washing them all. tsk tsk.

    PS i mark my brushes with red nail polish at the ends (a bow to Loubutin shoes. hehehehe)

  25. hello! I am a makeup newbie and i am starting to collect brushes. My first set so far was the Elianto 12-piece brush set. It's actually cheap but still, it's worth the care coz it serves its purpose. i just wanna ask, if the Suesh Brush Cleaner is not available, what other cleaning solutions, alternatives or techniques can i use to care for my brushes? Thanks a lot! God bless. =)
