Gift Guide: For Brush Lovers

Ohhh, the year 2014 is almost ending and I have so much to share about my great 2014 finds!  Just in case you don't know, I have been randomly giving out my favorite items on Instagram and/or Facebook so please follow both my FB and IG account (@AskMeWhats).  

Now on to one of my favorite brush brand!  If you met me in person, on the job as a MUA, you'll see that I highly use my Charm Pro Brush set together with my individual MAC brushes because these babies really delivery!  I have been using them constantly for years and so far, I am still very happy with the quality (as long as you take good care of them). 

For all my CHARM Brushes review, please click LINK HERE

And who would've thought the brand came up with 2 new brush sets perfect for gift-giving?  Maybe you don't have Brush-loving friends but you love makeup brushes yourself?  No one can deny the fact that receiving a good set of makeup brushes this Christmas can make you feel extra good!

New Charm Pocket 5pc Brush Set in Black
Php500.00 (approx $10.50)
This is the sleek black version of the Pink Pocket Brush set (reviewed HERE).  As much as I would love to say that almost all "kikays" love pink!  I am wrong!  I have a lot of kikay friends who wanted a set that isn't too "girly" so this black version is perfect for emergency makeup retouches and you can slip this inside a big, medium and small bag!

As always, all Charm brushes are well protected upon purchase.

Five basic brushes with dual functions are included in this set!  You can definitely create a decent makeup look with only these brushes!

L-R Powder Brush, Brow Comb, Lip Brush, Big Eyeshadow Brush and Angled Eyeliner Brush

Your gift receiver is a PRO or almost a PRO in makeup application?  Why not go for the new Travel Pro "Suzie-Edition".  A 14-pc Makeup Brush Set housed in a very classy rose-gold pouch!  I love my Charm Double Duty Makeup Brush Set but I'm loving this too!

Php2,750.00 (approx $62.50)

This, by the way, is available in a limited edition design.  Luxurious metallic rose-gold pouch....

Rose-gold ferrules, sleek black handles!

Again, our babies well protected upon purchase!  Who keep the plastics and sleeves?  (I DO!)

14 outstanding travel-sized brushes made from animal and synthetic hair. 

L-R Concealer Brush, Foundation Brush, Angled Blush Brush, Powder Brush and Stippling Brush

L-R Pencil Point Brush, Blending Brush, Angled Eyeshadow Brush, Wet/Dry Eyeshadow Brush, Flat Liner Brush, Eyebrow Shading Brush, Bent Eyeliner Brush, Brow Spoolie and Lip Brush

A closer look on the mix of natural and animal hair!  These brushes are all multi-functional.  They feel so soft, never scratchy on skin even after several use!  I can vouch on Charm brushes because I myself is a user for years!

I can definitely create a full-faced makeup look using this set even in a professional setting!  I actully bring along a separate travel-sized set for retouch!

CHARM brushes are available at the ff. retail stores: Crossings Department Stores, PurBeauty, SOFA Retail Lab (Rockwell).

Do you own a Charm Brush?
How do you find the quality?

I own a couple (almost all) Charm brushes because they were either sent to me for press or gift BUT, I also repurchased a couple of Charm Brushes to be given as gifts for friends (abroad) and friends who are into makeup!  I really like the quality of these brushes considering the friendly price tag.
