BH Cosmetics Sculpt and Blend 10 Piece Brush Set

I stumbled across the BH Cosmetics Sculpt and Blend 10 Piece Brush Set back in 2015 whilst browsing the aisles of my local TK Maxx, which is of course one of my favourite things to do! I tend to find a load of rubbish most of the time and end up walking away tempted handed but on this occasion it was slightly different. BH Cosmetics is a brand I have heard about a lot in the beauty community and I have wanted to try their eyeshadows in particular for a long time. When I spotted this brush set for just £14.99 I knew I had to give it a go, although I definitely didn't need any more brushes!

When it comes to applying makeup, this brush set has got it covered from buffing in your foundation, blending your concealer, highlighting and contouring, this set of 10 brushes will cover everything. The set includes five larger brushes and five smaller brushes ranging in shape and size, all of the brushes are made from dual-fibre synthetic bristles which means they are super soft and flexible. I have noticed a couple of hairs shedding from one of the larger brushes, but this was a very small amount and nothing major, for the price I did expect worse. 

The set includes the following brushes:

113 Round Blending Face Brush - Ideal for buffing in liquid foundation giving you an airbrushed finish, also perfect for popping on a small amount of cream blush or bronzer. 
114 Angled Blending Face Brush - Works great to apply bronzer around the perimeter of the face or to apply blush to the cheeks. This brush also works really well for contouring the cheekbones. 
115 Tapered Contouring Face Brush - Great for targeting specific areas of the face, another brush that works wonders when it comes to contouring, the tapered bristles mean you can get into those harder to reach areas. 
116 Flat Blending Face Brush - I love this one for liquid foundation if I want to achieve a higher coverage, you can really build the product up using the flat top of the bristles. This brush also works quite well for applying powder as it is the largest brush in the set. 
117 Angled Contouring Face Brush - A great all rounder, this brush could be used for almost anything from foundation to blush and bronzer, it would even work for contouring. 

118 Small Tapered Contouring Face Brush - With a tiny tip this brush is perfect for precise application especially applying highlight to the inner corner of the eye.
119 Small Angled Blending Face Brush - I love using this brush to apply highlight to my brow bone, the shape and size of the bristles work perfectly to achieve a natural effect. 
120 Small Flat Blending Face Brush - The flat top of this brush works really well to apply concealer to targeted areas of the face, I find this one particularly useful for areas like the chin and around the nose.
121 Small Angled Contouring Face Brush - Probably the most perfect brush for blending under eye concealer I have found, I absolutely love how well this blends my concealer, the size is perfect. 
122 Small Round Blending Face Brush - I also really like to use this for concealer too, I tend to alternate between the two, the rounded tip means you can really buff the product into the skin.

Overall I absolutely love this brush set and I have found the perfect use for each and every brush that is included, the fact that this entire set cost me less than £15 is amazing, the quality is fab and I cannot recommend this brand enough when it comes to brushes, they feel and look like a high end set of brushes. If you're lucky enough to spot BH Cosmetics in your local TK Maxx then definitely grab what you can, if not you can order directly from the BH Cosmetics website.
