This set was a part of MAC holiday collection but why I am writing about it now? And why am I writing about it anyway? You will find that out soon.
I love brushes with good quality and I guess a girl can never have too many brushes. Do you agree with me? 😉 No matter what you think about MAC makeup you just have to agree that their brushes are amazing! But to get all brushes that you need you will have to pay a lot. And we all want to save some money, right? Pretty often MAC creates different sets of brushes and I am always tempted to buy them because they are so cheap. For e.g. 187 brush is $42.00 and here you get 5 mini brushes in a makeup bag for only $49.5
This is what this set includes and how the brushes look like:
Do-the-Trick Buff and Line Brush Set ($49.50)
So here is my opinion about MAC Brushes set and the comparison photo of SE brush and a “normal” one
As I said I was tempted so many times to get at least one set but all my friends told me that I shouldn’t do it because the quality is absolutely different. As you can see I didn’t listen and was hoping that they are wrong. Unfortunately they were not! Individual brushes are so much better. I don’t think that you can see it on the photo but 217 brush is made in Japan and 219SE is made in China. I could write a lot about both brushes but I will just say one thing. When I use these SE brushes they are not so soft enough as the regular brushes . Also often the fiber from them just falls out and is left right on my face!
I guess it is not only about this set and this is not only my opinion. So my advice – save some money and buy yourself individual MAC brushes. Believe me, it is a great investment and if you take a good care of your brushes they will last you forever!
