I will start this post by declaring I am not an artistic person, that gene was only given to my little sister it definitely skipped me and my brother. So my review will purely be my thoughts on how the brushes were packed, how they felt in hand and the quality. I must also mention that I gifted them to my sister who has a few words to say about the brush set. I should also say that when I received them I thought they were make-up brushes except they were too long for makeup brushes but the shape and style made them look like makeup brushes.

When the brushes arrived I was really amazed at how beautiful the travel pack for the brushes were and I think this led to my initial confusion on whether the brushes were for makeup or for painting. I loved the travel case they came it, smooth black in colour and red writings.


The Brushes were long, strong and really pretty again another confusion for me because when I loved at my real technique brushes they looked the same shape but just extra long. I can see why they would be nice to hold and paint with but like I said I am not artist or painter. I loved that they were two colours and the brown ones were my favourite I think they are really pretty plus they included an extra brush in a transparent kind of colour.

The brushes were really strong and I think that’s what convinced me that they were definitely not for the face.  When I grip some to do a pretend paint, they felt great in my hands and long enough I think any painter would love them and you got 2 of each type. They feel great in the hand and look even pretty.

My sister’s thoughts:

Paint brush review: Really smooth brushes very good for learning to paint or for someone who’s confident with painting. The set of 13 offers a wide selection so you don’t feel restricted to a certain brush. The brown brushes a very good for smooth lines and the white ones are great for creating texture with. That’s not to say that’s how you should use them use them however you wish. You can use the paint brushes for either canvases large pieces of art or just in your sketchbook good for fashion illustrations.



Paint brushes don’t stain beyond the colours you using, also they wash out very well you don’t have to worry about stains.In the image above you will see that I have used the number 2 paint brush. The paintbrush remain intact. the brush itself is very smooth to the handle.
The brush is very easy to wash I have found that it takes the paint very well.
I definitely recommend buying these precious because they’re very good. You can use them however you wish to whether it is for smooth Lines order or texture like I have let you in a lot Van Gogh out really.

    I can never have too many paint brushes and these appear to be sable or at least sable synthetic which I just love. I have some pure sable brushes and I covet those brushes – they are amazing. Hopefully I can add these to my tool set. 🙂

    Ooh, what a classy set of brushes! My youngest has just enrolled in an art class so these would be a lovely surprise if I am lucky enough to win.

  26. May 29, 2015 / 9:43 am

    Like you I’m no painter but I am creative. I’m a visual person so the packaging has me impressed already. I totally love that you thought they could be makeup brushes.

    Your sisters work is beautiful.

  27. May 28, 2015 / 9:29 pm

    I wish I could paint. I have always been drawn to watercolors. They are so beautiful.

  28. May 28, 2015 / 7:50 pm

    My daughter would really love these brushes. She love to paint. I am glad that my daughter got my husband’s genes, I have no artistic talents in me lol.

    I’m absolutely awful at art but I do have some brushes and like to paint sometimes. These look like really great brushes, it’s great that the brush tip is strong for good flow when painting.

  34. May 28, 2015 / 5:28 am

    I wish I was more artistic. This sounds like an amazing brush set for any artist.

  35. May 28, 2015 / 3:52 am

    I am not much of an artist, but I love to see what products are available. These look like great brushes!

  36. May 28, 2015 / 1:18 am

    What a great review. My kids love to paint and I never know exactly what type of brushes are good to use and what they are for.

  37. May 28, 2015 / 12:08 am

    My son is an avid artist so he would absolutely love this 14-piece brush set! I’ve got my entries in and fingers crossed, thanks for the great opportunity! 🙂

    • May 28, 2015 / 6:08 am

      Me too, but love that my sister does know how to.

  41. May 27, 2015 / 11:18 pm

    My daughter loves drawing. I bet she would enjoy painting as well. I will have to enter to win these brushes for her. Your artwork is beautiful.

  42. May 27, 2015 / 8:54 pm

    These definitely seem like high quality paint brushes. It seems like they have a lot of longevity as well which is something you’d want from art supplies.

  43. May 27, 2015 / 6:35 pm

    I think my son likes painting. He loves art class, I might consider getting him a paint set. These look nice.

    I wasnt blessed with the artistic gene but my partner is a wonderful artist and sculptor.,so this prize would be very much appreciated.

  45. May 27, 2015 / 2:12 pm

    This looks like a perfect set for some one who loves to paint. Too bad I’m no good at it 😛

  46. May 27, 2015 / 1:46 pm

    Great giveaway! My daughters are both aspiring artists and some of their work has been awesome. This brush set would be a great addition to their art toolbox!

    What a nice brush set this is. My sister and mother are both artists, so it would be a great gift idea for either one (or both) of them.

  48. May 27, 2015 / 10:56 am

    These brushes are pretty cool. Though I may not need this asap, I will enter this giveaway because the product is quite neat. Thanks for sharing!

  49. May 27, 2015 / 9:17 am

    This would make the perfect gift for my niece who is not only an artist but also teaches art! I am going to have to go check out the website!

  50. May 27, 2015 / 7:42 am

    this is beautiful!!! I am into amateur painting myself, as it keeps me relaxed and helps take all the stress away, somehow appearing along the line of parenting, developing a freshly set up limited company, distributing skincare and makeup products (my clever way to be in contact with lots of beauty stuff every day;), and attempting at maintaining a healthy relationship… I know there are so many other women mastering this, and much more, so I guess it’s just a learning curve for me now.
    So happy to discover your blog, really enjoy reading it!!!

    Oh, if you fancy, visit my page also, for a competition I have on:)

  51. May 27, 2015 / 7:32 am

    What a great giveaway, especially to someone who appreciates art! I used to love to draw but am limited about my talent in this area!
