Michelle Phan’s fave – CVS Essence of Beauty brushes

Last week I received a package speedier than I expected from ebay!  Oh my, this is it…the wonder cheapie…

 Oh my goodness, these are the same brushes my idol (YouTube’s #1 makeup guru) Michelle Phan uses!

Michelle Phan really made it clear that this is her
favorite blending brush for her base.
This is from her Purple Hazy tutorial
and her costume Geisha Tutorial.

She used this brush in a lot of her videos when she was just starting out as a makeup guru πŸ™‚ Here it is again in her Hippie Princess tutorial

In all their glory

I think what made her like these brushes a lot was that  even when if you consider that Essence of Beauty is a drugstore brand, this set is still made with authentic hair and fibers.

It says on the back of the reusable, resealable pack :)and yesterday I tried it on myself as I gussied up for my friend’s bridal shower.  Really nice for blending concealer under the eyes and around the nose…I’m super happy I got this set.  Thanks, Michelle, for all that you share!

Amen! I won in the Lanolips Contest Giveaway!
