May Brush(es) of the Month

This is just a quick post since I forgot all about doing my brush of the month post for May.

My purchase for this past month was the Borghese Professional Select brush set that was being sold in Costco. It has a selection of 10 of their finest cosmetic face and eye brushes and also comes with a lovely brush roll.


These are the brushes that are included:
#100 Powder Kabuki Brush
#101 Angled Contour Brush
#102 Duo-Fiber Blending Brush
#104 Round Foundation Brush
#105 Concealer Brush
#200 Eye Powder Fluff Brush]
#201 Eyeshadow Brush
#202 Angled Eye Contour Brush
#203 Domed Smudge Brush
#204 Angled Eye/Brow Brush
They have tapered wooden handles and are make with premium natural and synthetic bristles. It cost only $23.99 USD plus tax.

I haven't had a chance to try any of these out yet but a few years ago Costco had sold under the Kirkland label, a Borghese brush set. I had bought that and still use those brushes today.

Sorry that there's only that one picture and no detailed pictures of the brushes. I didn't think that I would be posting at all for the next week and a half as my son has come home to Hawaii to get married. There's still so much to do and some unexpected things have happened since he arrived here on Friday.

Have a lovely week and I'll be back with more posts within the next week or two.

im so excited to try these myself! i have last year's brushes and they are amazing! i especially like their powder brush the most. by the looks of this year's set, it looks like i'm going to love the face brushes the most! we still haven't gotten them in here in Canada yet (check 2 days ago).

congratulations to your son :) i hope you will share some bits of the wedding on your blog, but if not, we would love to hear how it went !

talk to you soon!

@Nic Nic--Thank you for your sweet thoughts! If I run out of the BB cream and can't get it from my son, I'll ask you for some help.

@allstyledup--Thank you Winnie! I'll check out the stores for the Milani blush and then will get your package ready for mailing. Actually, the brushes are all wrapped to go but still need to be packed in the mailer.

Sydney is getting a Costco soon... I seriously hope items like this are sold there! It is about 30 mins drive from my house but it will be so worth it! I think you did very well getting this for $23!!

galpal.hi said...

@BV--Thanks! I went back to Costco yesterday to pick some things up for work and took a look to see if the brush set was still there. It looks like it was all sold out. I'm glad that I picked it up when I did.
