I was drawn to purchase this 22-piece brush set from Coastal Scents by the ample amount of eye brushes included in the set. Even though I was having second thoughts about buying this brush set, it turns out that I eventually bought it and yes, I’m loving it.
The Coastal Scents 22-piece brush set is a complete set of makeup brushes. The brushes cater to different needs from applying foundation to powder and eyeshadows. The brushes are super soft and of good quality.
The brush roll is of a matte black faux leather material with the Coastal Scents logo imprinted in the middle of the closing flap. The flap folds up three times and has two magnetic snap buttons to keep it close. When you open the first flap you will notice a little zipper pocket that can be used to store small items. Upon unfolding the flaps one can notice a nylon type of material that separates, holds, protects and cover each brush.

Coastal Scent 22 Piece Makeup Brush Set – names, types and uses
1. Fan Brush – made with synthetic hair
This brush is used for sweeping/dusting loose eyeshadow that fell out while applying, it can be also used to apply a light application of blush and bronzer. This brush does come in handy sometimes but it’s not often used like the foundation brush.
2. Powder Brush – made with synthetic hair
It’s very soft and tends to give light coverage of powder but this is not something that I would use to regularly to apply powder to my face. I would prefer to use a fluffier powder brush to apply powder and use this brush to blend foundation all over my face.
3. Flat Buffer Brush – synthetic hair
This brush is great for blending out an application of foundation.
4. Angle Blush Brush – natural brush made of goat hair
This brush is super soft and its use to apply blush to the face.

I’m so glad I bought these brushes, it is everything that I’m looking for in a brush set. The quality is amazing and the price is reasonable. I haven’t experienced much shedding with the brushes, the only brush that was shedding is the fan brush. The only downfall with this brush is identifying them since they are not labeled on the brush handles.
