SLMissGlam brushes are finally in my collection 🙂
I was surprised when I realized the shipping would be so fast, by priority mail and it was free shipping with my order. The business card and hand written note she included were really cute, too.
Everything was packaged securely and I love the pink tissue paper–got a little taste of girly glam as soon as I opened the box. It’s the little things.
Woohoo! I couldn’t believe the summer promotion Stephanie was running: buy a Glam Brush Book and get a White Glam Gold set of 9 brushes free. I took advantage of the promotion and also used a discount code on top of that. My total was $195 and for 34 brushes, that’s only $5.73 per brush!!
Not to mention the beautiful book that protects the brushes; it’s made of soft leather, zips closed and each brush slips into its own pocket. There are also flaps that cover the tops of the brushes and each flap has a cute golden saying like “sparkle every day”.
I feel like I won’t need any more brushes for a long time (let’s see how long I can resist makeup brush shopping lol.) because A) I just got 34 brushes and B) these feel high quality and luxurious, like they’ll last through many washes and daily use.
I will say that one of the brushes in my brush book (the precise powder brush) had a bit of yellow stuff on the bristles, glue I’m guessing. And the seam between the handle and bottom of the ferrule on the Classic Powder brush in my brush book, was a tiny bit scuffed/rough/chipping.
I only mention these things because I don’t want to be one of those bloggers that just GUSHES about everything and leaves out negatives. That doesn’t paint a true picture. Now did these 2 things bother me much? No, the chipping isn’t noticeable and I think the glue? will wash out (if not, it won’t bother me)…especially with the good deal I got, I would purchase more as gifts and highly recommend them.
Since the SLMissGlam brushes arrived on my doorstep, they’re the only ones I’ve been using! I reach for the Eye Angled Shading, Concealer, Classic Powder (the white one), Angled Blush and Full Foundation brushes the most. In case you wanted to try a few separately before investing in a set.
What I wanted out of the SLMissGlam brush book and 9 brush set…was a variety of high quality, soft brushes that were beautiful enough to display and fun to use on the daily. I knew getting these brushes would encourage me to play with my makeup more often (#momlife) and actually wash them regularly, lol.
I’m sooo happy with my purchase, and no this is not sponsored in any way 🙂
