Review: Colorescience On the Go Brush Set

One of the biggest distinctions I've noticed between most professional makeup artists and most women applying makeup on themselves is that the pros always use clean brushes. This is why women who don't wash their brushes regularly or use the same eye shadow brush will complain about "muddy" colors. While I don't think it's always practical to wash your brushes every morning, keeping more than one set on hand is a great way to ensure you always have a clean brush ready. If you want a second set, it's often a good idea to get one sized for travel, like Colorescience's On the Go brush set.

  • Made with synthetic fibers
  • Great selection of brushes
  • Small but practical size
  • Handy carrying case
  • Case includes additional pockets
  • Set is fairly expensive
I love how this set contains brushes made from synthetic fibers. They are soft and work as expected. My main complaint is that the blush brush isn't very dense, and the flexibility of the fibers makes it more difficult to pick up a large amount of powders (which is important for a swift application of powder foundations). For blushes, bronzers, or finishing powders, it's probably fine; you can also squeeze the fibers together with your clean fingers for a denser texture. I love how this has brushes to cover brows/eye liner, cream or liquid concealers, eye shadow (these are two of my favorite types of eye shadow brushes), and the blush/powder brush. This set is good quality, but the price is still pretty high, even including the case. I would've expected a special feature, such as eco-friendly handles or recycled bristles, at this price point. However, if you are looking for a gift, this is a nice set, and contains a good selection of brushes.
