Perhaps a little known fact about me on my blog here is that I love makeup. I have more than I know what to do with, if we’re being honest here. I’ve always been pretty into makeup… I blame it on 15 years of dance competitions and recitals. I was recently contacted by Soho Beauty about reviewing some of their products. Of course I was all about that! They wanted to send me their Wonder Woman makeup bag set! YES! I love and adore Wonder Woman! But, they also sent me their Disney Princess brush collection — You guys. I can’t even begin to tell you how in love with them I am. I am super particular about makeup brushes. I’ve tried so many out there and there are very few brushes that I enjoy using. Plus you can’t go wrong with Disney Princess brushes. I mean, come on! They’re adorable.
So, I actually used these for our Mini Vacation to Graceland. I’m pretty pleased with how much the big bag can hold. I put my makeup in that one, the clear bag had our toothbrushes in it, and the small bag had some girly products. The small one is still in my purse and I love it!
The brushes I got were – “Fairy Sponges”, these are part of Aurora’s collection. They’re blending sponges. Merryweather is the blue egg shaped one – used to gradually build coverage. Flora, the pink sponge, is for detailing — like for under eye concealer, etc. Fauna, the green sponge, is for large area coverage — forehead, cheeks, etc. The next box was the “Enchanted Beauty Kabuki Brush” – I was so excited about this brush. I lost my old Kabuki brush and this one is beautiful. The Tiana brushes – brow shaping (YAY!), tweezers, and a lash comb. I have naturally light, light, LIGHT blonde eyebrows (they’re also very small) and eyelashes so I have to compensate with eyebrow color and dark mascara. The Mulan brushes are double-sided eyeshadow brushes – a fluff and liner brush, a crease and detail brush, and a brow shaping brush. The Cinderella brushes are a face band base brush – for bronzer, etc and an eye express refresh brush – for highlights on eye or blending out any harsh lines. The purple box is Jasmine. Her brushes are a complexion perfecting bush for foundation and blending and a highlight brush for, well, highlighting.
Something I really love about these brushes are the little princess details. Belle’s has a rose, Jasmine has the lamp, Tiana has a frog, Cinderella has a glass slipper. I LOVE that. I don’t have any complaints about any of these brushes .. which is interesting because like I said, I am very particular about my makeup brushes. I’ve been using them for just shy of a month and they’re perfect. They’re soft, the bristles don’t fall out, they clean up nicely. There were brushes that I didn’t have yet that I have been wanting to get, so it makes my makeup routine that much better in the mornings! Plus, they’re so pretty. I love how pretty they are. Each set really embodies the princesses. My favorite two favorite Disney princesses are Belle and Aurora. I would have been excited just getting those two – but all of these brushes have little details about the princess on them. It’s adorable.
