Review and Giveaway: Soho Beauty Makeup Brushes & Travel Case

by Rachel Yeomans | May 9th, 2012   

Remember my recent revelation about my beauty regimen? After learning a few new tips about makeup application, I received makeup brushes from the Silk collection from Soho Beauty (and even an adorable travel kit!) to try to take these lessons and apply them during my morning pre-work makeup routine.

Here is what I received:

Soho Beauty Brushes Review and Giveaway: Soho Beauty Makeup Brushes & Travel Case

I have been using the brushes for about two weeks now, and I now have my new beauty regimen down pat! And I’m really excited to say that the brushes live up to their collection name. They really are quite silk-like. You can really tell this with the blush brush and the crease brush. As silly as it sounds, they almost feel fluffy! I felt like I was five years old again playing with my mom’s powder brush and thinking how utterly glamorous I was.

For these past few weeks, they have held up wonderfully well and overall I am extremely happy! And I really chose well with the Kabuki brush. I admit, I primarily picked it as one of the brushes Soho Beauty would send me because I liked the name. Each brush comes inside a plastic pack with a beauty tip and cleaning instructions (nice touch!). I didn’t know this, but according to the tip, the Kabuki brush is actually best for people who use mineral powders versus foundation, which I do. It really does blend the makeup wonderfully (much better than my previous enormous powder brush), and it doesn’t waste as much powder as my other brush did.

My greatest excitement though is the crease brush. I admit I didn’t even know a crease brush existed before being introduced to it through Soho Beauty. You know how some women are able to have their eyeshadow blend slightly from the bottom lid into their top lid without appearing too harsh? Well, I think they accomplish that using a crease brush! It’s genius – why? Because it’s easy and always looks good!

Now…for the finished look:

I admit I’m incredibly simple with my makeup, so I apologize if you were expecting something more shocking. But I prefer having my makeup application make it appear that I’m not wearing much – if any – makeup. What I’m wearing (which I wear pretty much every day):

  • TRUE Fair #2 mineral powder foundation
  • TRUE Fair concealer and highlighter
  • Nars Torrid blush
  • Chanel Spice quad eyeshadow
  • Topshop Kohl eyeliner
  • Maybelline Volume Express mascara
  • Nars Verdiana lipstick
  • Buxom Dominique lip gloss

Thanks so much to Soho Beauty for sending me these brushes and the wristlet (which by the way fits perfectly in my briefcase for mid-work-day touch-ups). And I don’t know if you noticed, but I said that Soho Beauty sent me one of the items listed above, but the picture shows two. Well, dear readers, some of those items are for you!

One of you will be randomly selected to receive the following from Soho Beauty:

To receive this fun packet, simply comment on this post sharing your constant go-to beauty product that never leaves your Kaboodle – just kidding, your adult makeup case (I was having another young beauty flashback). This giveaway runs from Wednesday, May 9th, at 2pm EST through Wednesday, May 23rd, at 12am EST. The winner will be contacted via email (therefore you must provide your email when registering to comment – you don’t need to post it in the comment itself; I can see it on the back-end!); you must reply within 24 hours or another winner will be selected.

Best of luck, dear readers!

I always use liquid eyeliner because powder shadow always ends up on my cheeks.. so im going to give eyeshadows a chance and hopefully the SOHO brushes give that confidence I need to go for a new look

What I always have in my @Soho Beauty Brand  case is eyebrow liner, blush, and lip gloss. When in a hurry these 3 things always add a nice touch.

I always need my Arbonne Mattifying Powder! It helps soften the effect of foundation or concealer so the look is more natural. And when I'm not wearing foundation OR concealer, I use it to bring down the natural shine a little bit. It goes on clear and it doesn't dry you out. It's the BEST!

 @karica4 Haha I know right?! I used to have Diorshow - I admit it gave me raccoon eyes - perhaps it was my eye cream but I went back to Maybelline

 @Jennifer Haile Nice! I adore my standard lipstick as well - sometimes I'm afraid they'll discontinue it and I wouldn't know what to do!

 @AliKu Thanks for the comment! What brand is your favorite? It's so hard finding great go-to eyeliner!

 @denimorse I admit I still have my green sparkly one - more of a paper weight than anything. Oh the memories!
