First off these brushes have something called Cosmefibre (which they have engineered and trademarked). This means that the brushes fibre can be used with not only all types of makeup (liquid, etc..) but is packed with 3-10 times more fibres so the application is so much better! Not only is the application great but the brush head is positioned to mimic the way the pad of your finer would move across your face.
The brush handle itself is curved to help fit into the hand better and is made using a metal alloy similar to what is used in the manufacture of luxury car engines.
In the words of Oprah, (yes THE Oprah) ” Artis Brushes are the Rolls Royce of makeup brushes” Well Oprah you are correct per usual! These brushes are unbelievable!
I was gifted the Elite 5 Brush Set to try. This set comes with:
- Oval 7- Foundation, Blush, Contour
- Oval 4- Eye makeup, Concealer
- Oval 3- Eye makeup, Concealer
- Linear 1- Eye Liner, Brows
- Circle 1R- Lip Color, Eye Shadow, spot Concealer
Basically all you need for a complete face.
So worth it?? YES! Not going to lie these brushes are not only gorgeous works of art but the application is flawless. You can tell just by feeling the brushes how well made they are. I thought my makeup applied really nicely to the skin with using less makeup. The only negative I have to say is I am not used to using brushes with a handle like that so it took me a bit to figure out how to position my hand correctly to apply my makeup. Otherwise, I see why Oprah gifts these to all of her friends!
These brushes do come with a hefty price tag ($175 for a pack of 5) but Artis was so kind to give me the discount code LIFEWITHCAM25 for 25% off their site! That means you can get that special Christmas present for your mom, girlfriend, or yourself for 25% less than retail!
As always if you have any questions, let me know!
