Take a look at this sparkly hot pink beauty of Sephora Cheek-to-Cheek Blush Bronzer duo.
The packaging is definitely the first thing I noticed about this item.
Not only the brush handles are sparkly and bright with hot pink glitters, the box also has multi-coloured glitters all over. It would make a great holiday gift for a girl in your life, or yourself.
The brushes themselves aren’t bad either. They are full sized – a little long to travel with but it can happen :), also quite soft and fluffy. They stand out in my brush holder among others.
Here they are out of the box – the bronzer brush on the left and the angled blush brush on the right.
I like the plastic mold that keeps the brushes in place, both for presentation purpose and for protection. The brushes fit tightly in the slots, the bristles won’t come into contact with the packaging for any chance to be bend or damaged during transit.
I don’t have many brushes from Sephora, other than the Holiday Light Show set, but I like them all so far, for different purposes 🙂
The angled blush brush has joined my bdellium tools 942 Slanted contour brush as my blush brushes of choice, especially for cream blushes. It works well and does not shed during the testing period of a few weeks.
The bronzer brush is a little too flared out to work as it is intended for (unless you squeeze the bristles to make a thin-looking brush), so I use it with powder to set my under-eye concealer and it’s good for that.
So the brushes are not out of this world but they are good for what I use them for, and the glittery handles seal the deal. Again, at the $29 price tag, they aren’t the most reasonably priced brushes but they did go on sale for $22 (for a short time before they went OOS). I am hoping you can still find them in store or they might be back in stock online.
