AMW Reviews: Bedazz Brushes


Caby, a fellow beauty blogger sent me brushes called Bedazz.  Such a cute and catchy name!  I read from her blog that these brushes were personally picked and have it manufactured and tested by herself, thus assuring the quality of these brushes! 
I got these brushes prior to leaving for the Road Trip.  The first thing I did?  Washed them and brought  them along with me to test it out!

After several usage, I'm finally ready to give them a review!  But before anything else, I have to say, I am very impressed with the way the brushes were packed!  They are well protected during shipment!




Now let's get into each brushes and I'll tell you what I think about them!

Overall, these 3 brushes are must haves for any makeup enthusiasts.  Whether you're starting up on makeup or already a Pro, these brushes are wonderful addition to any brush family.  What I like about these brushes is the fact that they are long handled, the ferrule and the brushes are attached really well so I find that these brushes are quite stable and with care, these brushes can last.

Though I own a couple of brushes, I find that I don't have dupes for these 3 brushes.  There may be a lot of Stippling Brushes, Angled Blush Brushes and Blending Brushes, they are still unique in their own ways!

Of course, as a reminder, always wash your brushes prior to usage.  And always maintain brushes in good condition by washing them regularly.  Either spritz them with brush cleaner after every usage and deep cleanse them at least once a week.  

Out of the 3 brushes, my favorite is the Angled Blush Brush as I love blushes and I love contouring!  I find myself reaching more to this on a daily basis.  

So many brush brands out there!  I'll definitely keep you guys informed on what's out there!!!
Brushes out there?  Better watch out!

Keep smilin'
Stay happy!

  11. Maki, my pleasure!

    Marge, it's not the exact dupe of MAC217 but i can vouch on the function, you can do smokey eyes with this blending brush easily just like 217 would do! :D
