Hello everyone, did you miss me? My new apartment is finally happily furnished! It “only” took me about 3 weeks to do, and I haven’t even gotten to the decorating. Or unpacking fully. Or, er, figuring how to organise all my makeup. But That’s for another post, I suppose.

Since Rykea did a recent post about a brush set she received, I figured it I would also cover some brushes I picked up recently as well.

If you like the brand, you’ll possibly have noticed that Sephora was doing a bit of a clearance the last few months of their tokidoki stock. Sadly, I think they’re discontinuing selling all products from the brand, but it gives us all a good chance to scavenge for some great products during the sale.

Though I do have a few brushes, I was also in the market for some new brushes, so I picked up the tokidoki Pittura Brush Set, which features an eyeshadow, eyeliner, and crease brush.

I was initially hesitant about buying these brushes because I wasn’t particularly familiar with the brand. After scavenging MUA and the web for some reviews, I was pleasantly surprised to see product receive extremely good reviews.

One of my main worries was that with the character attached to the end of the brushes, they would be weighed down at the end and would make it difficult to control the brushes due to the balance and uneven heaviness. I was happy to discover this was not the case — I barely even noticed they were there, cuteness aside.

The brushes’ bristles are also incredibly soft and of high quality, and didn’t irritate my sensitive skin at all. They were also very effective in actually picking up pigment for application. I haven’t really gotten the chance to use the crease brush though, as I don’t really have an eye crease due to the shape of my eyes… but I think the ELF studio sets had a similar brush called a “blending” brush so I’ll probably end up using it for that.

My one complaint about these brushes — particularly the eyeshadow and eyeliner ones — is that pick up pigment so well, it leaves a bit of a stain on the brush, so you either have to deal with it or wash your brushes after every use.

I picked up this set at Sephora for $14 — approximately $4.70 for each brush, though its original retail was $35 or about $11.70 per brush. Obviously the second isn’t as good of a deal as what I purchased it for, but the price is consistent with the quality of brush. Plus,they’re super cute, which is always a bonus in my book! I think they’re being discontinued most places, so if you’re interested, you should probably grab them on Amazon or eBay.
