Kit Stars Vegan Brush Kit

As a makeup wearer, you can never really have enough makeup brushes. I mean washing them all the time is just far too much effort. I was kindly sent the Kit Stars Full Vegan Brush Kit* and it arrived at the perfect time because all of my current brushes are in desperate need of a good clean. Like it's so bad I can't actually remember when I last did them.

All Kit Stars brushes are made with good quality wooden handles and solid copper ferrules which are gold plated to make them stronger and hard-wearing. So not only will they last but they look beautiful. You can't really beat a bit of black and gold, can you? You can also get all of the brushes in either natural or vegan hair which is great.

The full brush kits then come with a peel down bag which when opened up folds into a brush holder. Not going to lie, I didn't notice this until I went on their website to find the link. It is such a great idea. means you can have all your brushes visible and to hand in a handy pot when you're travelling. Genius.

These brushes are so damn soft that whilst writing this review I have been sat just stroking them. I think my top two are the powder brush and the shaping veil. They shaping veil brush applies my highlight beautifully and my glow looks incredible. The powder brush just feels dreamy on the face whilst blending out my powder. I'm also having a break from my beauty blender because I find that the base polisher brush applies my base better and prevents my dry skin from looking too horrendous.

Now I am no eyeshadow expert (as in I'm kinda scared of it because I have no idea what I'm doing so just stick to eyeliner) but I've had a quick play with these brushes anyway and they blend really well. All of the brushes seem to clean well and I haven't had any shedding either.

This full kit comes in at £60 which is a pretty good price for a set of brushes to do your whole face and a travel pouch. All in all, I am a fan and have been reaching for these brushes over any of my others. So here's a breakdown of all the brushes in the kit and what they are for. Prices of individual brushes range from £6-£15.
