Kirkland Brush Set

I found out about this brush set from Liz of LizberryMakeup.  I was blown away by the great price, plus Costco has decent items..so I gave these brushes a shot.  I haven't used them yet because they still reek of chemicals.  I've deep cleaned them once...but that wasn't enough to remove the stinky scent.  I will do a follow-up review on these brushes, but for the time being...this is an introduction.

The brush set comes in a nice box that houses, a brush case, 8 full size brushes, a travel kit, and an eyelash curler.  For about $20 dollars, it's a sweet deal. 


Complete set in the box
You receive a Powder brush, flat top brush, angled foundation brush, eyeshadow brush, blending brush, eyeliner brush, smudge brush and 2 in 1 brush which is an angled brush on one end and a spoiley on the other end.



Sexy brushes outside of their box
The brushes are made of synthetic bristles and are also anti-microbial.  The brushes are treated with an anti-microbial formula that helps to prevent harmful bacteria & mold that collects on brushes.  Costco also claims that these brushes are cruelty-free.  In case anyone wants to know, the brush case is also faux leather. 

I placed the Kirkland Powder brush with some other powder brushes that I own, just to compare. 

Overall, the brushes are very soft and a great price.  I'm still in the process of removing the stinky smell so I can't offer a deeper review.

$20 is such a good deal! I can use most of the brushes too.. man I don't go to cosco lol
The only thing I dont understand is why would they make the handle so bulky :s if it was like MAC then it would be awesome-r! lol
