Hi, lovelies! Today I’m sharing with you some brushes that I had always wanted to try. Sedona Lace
gets a lot of love on YouTube so I’ve always been curious about the brand. I love using my Real Techniques
, but I was looking for some very specific brush shapes that RT doesn’t offer. I didn’t want to spend a lot of money on pricey MAC
brushes either so I decided to finally try Sedona Lace
. I bought 2 brushes first, just to see how I liked them. I was so impressed with them that I made a second order as soon as I could. I don’t have the brushes’ equivalents from other brands so I’m not able to compare them in terms of “dupes” (sorry!)
Synthetic Small Flat Top 872 ($12.95): I had been using my Real Techniques Contour brush for blending concealer under my eyes but I got this because I wanted a smaller brush that would give me more control. I love (looove) this brush! It gives my concealer an airbrushed finish. It’s quite dense so I use it with a light hand. It blends cream and liquid concealers very well. It’s also good for spot concealing and contouring the nose.
Pencil Brush 904 ($8.95): I had been looking for a small pencil-type brush for my crease. I have small hooded eyes so I find that most brushes are too big for detailed crease work. This brush met all my expectations. It’s really soft and gives me a lot of control over eyeshadow placement. It’s very soft and great for smudging eyeshadow in the lashline too.
Dome Contour FB 05 ($12.95): This brush has the perfect shape for number of different uses: blush, contour, highlighter, powder. It’s not as soft as the FB03 or the 928. The difference in softness is noticeable but it’s not by any means scratchy or low-quality. I like to apply face powder and sheer blushes with this brush. I find it too small and dense for pigmented blushes. I also love it for highlighter.
Tulip Contour FB 03 ($14.95): I wanted a tulip-shaped brush for the longest time! It’s labeled for contouring but I use it for applying loose setting powders because it’s tapered but not super dense. It gives me a controlled, non-cakey application. It’s bristles are softer than the FB 05’s but not as soft as the pink one’s (the flat top).
Eyeliner Brush 772: I like that this brush has the right amount of stiffness to allow a precise gel liner application. It holds up well against long lasting liners and constant washing. However, it’s a bit thicker than I imagined it would be. I’m used to thinner eyeliner brushes so this one doesn’t seem as precise.
Synthetic Flat Top 928 ($14.95):
I was unsure which synthetic foundation to get from their Midnight Lace collection (the pink and black brushes). Somehow I settled for the flat top but I think I want them all. This is a wonderful buffing brush, if you like buffing brushes chances are you’ll love this one too. The bristles are so
I placed two separate orders from Sedona Lace. I had a very very good shopping experience with them. Both times my ordered was shipped within 24 hours of being placed. The shipping rates are very affordable. I paid only $2 for shipping the first time and $4 the second time. I’m sure there are free shipping codes around the net but I decided to use the 20% discount instead. They do 20% off somewhat regularly. I also got sent some mini eyeshadow pans as free samples. All in all, I have nothing but good things to say about Sedona Lace. I’ve been using the brushes a ton (hence why they’re dirty). As expected, the synthetic pink brushes are the softest but the ones with the black bristles are nice too. The only “meh” brush in the bunch is the eyeliner brush because it’s too big for my taste.
Let me know if you’ve also tried Sedona Lace brushes. What were your experiences?
