Review: Beauty Cosmetics Face Perfection Brushes


*Warning: Picture heavy post

I know you've been waiting for this review ever since I posted my Beauty Cosmetics Haul. Well, here it is! What's really intriguing about this particular brush set is it looks so much like Sigma Synthetic Kabuki Kit. Apart from the price, I couldn't really compare Beauty Cosmetics with Sigma because I do not have the latter. Sigma Synthetic Kabuki Kit costs approximately 2500php (56usd) while Beauty Cosmetics Face Perfection Brushes cost 850php (20usd).


Here is how Sigma Synthetic Kabuki Kit looks like. Photo taken from Sigma Website. Aesthetic wise, I think the color of the Beauty Cosmetics brush bristles are more expensive looking than Sigma's. 


The brushes came with a drawstring pouch with Beauty Cosmetics logo. Very handy for travel! Each brush came with a plastic sleeve. 



Density: I am amazed how all of the brushes are densely packed! The images above don't lie! The density of a brush must be looked whenever one is looking for a good quality brush. If a brush is not densely packed, the makeup application would be difficult. The softness of a brush would be of no good if it isn't densely packed. 


The brushes look so nice that I have to take multiple photos of them! I had difficulty choosing what photos to include in this post.



Bristles: They are made of synthetic bristles which are super soft! Synthetic brushes are great for applying powder, cream and liquid products on the face. As opposed to animal hair bristles, synthetic bristles do not absorb products. They transfer product very well unto the face and give a seamless finish. I didn't experience any shedding or bleeding during the first wash.



Handles: The handles of the brush have a shiny finish engraved with silver Beauty Cosmetics lettering. They are thicker than the handles of the 12 PC Synthetic Brushes. I think they really look sturdy and classy! The length of the brushes are no bigger than the tip of my middle finger up to the end of my palm. (Sorry no exact measurements!)

Let's now move on to the individual brushes. They have no name like Sigma so I'm gonna give them names!

BC Tapered Kabuki which looks like Sigma F86: Perfect for applying cream or liquid products onto the harder to reach areas of the face like the sides of the nose and the inner corners of the eyes.


BC Flat Top Kabuki which looks like the famous Sigma F80: Perfect for applying cream or liquid products onto the flat areas of the face like cheeks and forehead. I use this brush to set and buff my foundation.



Here's a side by side comparison with the flat top brush from the BC 12 PC Synthetic Brush Set. The flat top kabuki brush is smaller but denser!


Look how the smaller brush is denser than the bigger one. I prefer the flat top kabuki brush from the Face Perfection set than the flat top brush from 12 PC Synthetic set because it's more firm. I find the bigger flat top brush a bit flimsy.


BC Angled Kabuki which looks like Sigma F84. Perfect for applying bronzer and blush! I love love love this brush! Definitely my favorite. I'm a big contour fan that's why I love using this brush. Now I've found the perfect brush for contouring and applying brush.


In comparison with the angled brush from the 12 PC brush set, the brush is again, denser or more tightly packed.


Like the flat top brush, the angled brush both from the 12 PC brush set are a bit flimsy in my opinion. The brushes from the Face Perfection Set are definitely easier to use than the face brushes from the 12 PC brush set.


What I like:

  • Affordable for 850php. Totally worth it! 
  • Locally available. I had a smooth transaction with Ms. Rosenn, the owner of Beauty Cosmetics. I got my order the next day after I paid for them.
  • The brushes are super soft and densely packed. 
  • The travel-sized brushes can easily fit any makeup kit unlike full-sized brushes
  • Thick handles provide a better grip
  • No shedding or bleeding  
  • Synthetic bristles = cruelty free
  • Each brush performed its job well
  • Sleek looking 
What I don't like:
          None at all! I love the brushes to bits!!

  3. Yehey, I am so happy for you girl! I agree, muka syang sosy! And upon looking on the pictures, talagang parang it get's the product so well, but it delivers good coverage, yun bang hindi nya iaabsorb yung product, then sobrang konti nalang ng mapupunta sa face mo. Ah, I am so inlove dahil super soft siya. Grr, I need to buy this. Konting tiis nalang talaga. hehehe

    1. Yup! The face brushes from the 12pc set are not as good as this set. Aside from my need to get a decent brush set, the good reviews about the 12pc set were the main reason why I bought mine! Too convincing eh! It's perfectly okay to be picky on brush sets because it would be a waste if you buy something that has a bad or so-so quality.

  6. Do they prick your face sometimes? I read a review from another blogger that they do. :/

  14. The Sigma Synthetic Kabuki set has been on my wish list forever! I've seen this on Facebook na nga but I'm still apprehensive if I'll get them (the pink set).
    I fell in love with the synthetic brushes from landmark kaya di muna ako bibili ng iba. But I'll definitely keep this set in mind :)

    1. Synthetic brushes from Landmark are really promising, very soft and affordable but not dense enough for me.

LOL =)) Thanks for the review :) I own a Bare Naturals' vegan flat top brush :) It's really soft, never shed, never bled and it has been with me for 2 years and counting!! :) I hope you can do a post about Brush Care and How to Properly Clean and Shape Brushes!!! :)
