Kelley Quan Vegan Beauty Brush Eye Series 1

Kelley Quan Vegan Beauty Brush Eye Series 1

As you may know by now, I am a big fan of Kelley Quan brushes.  I recently decided to order the full set as well as a travel set from the brand. To my surprise, Kelley included a mini eye brush set for me to review. The good news is these brushes are now available for sale in all Northeast Whole Foods stores. This set, designed just for the eyes includes four mini brushes in Kelley's signature pink packaging. At $22.99 this set is amazing quality. 

I compared them against other brushes in my collection of similar size and shape, and was very pleased to find that all four brushes are softer, and work much better than others I've tried.  While not the exact same brushes from Kelley's premier line, these are a great affordable alternative without sacrificing quality. You won't find brushes constructed like this, as soft as this at a price like this.  Like all of Kelley Quan's brushes, these are 100% vegan. When it comes to brushes you can purchase in the grocery store, or at a drugstore, the quality is pretty lacking.  It's so refreshing to know that people now have a choice like this right at Whole Foods!  Plus each box includes a Qr Barcode that when scanned, pulls up a tutorial by Kelley herself with how to use each brush. 

The first brush #E1 is a Large Fluff Brush, which is recommended for all-over eye color.  It can be used for both cream and powder cosmetic formulas. I use this for blending eyeshadow into my crease. Because of the duo fiber bristles, you get the most amazing blend.  This brush also works well for blending out concealer under the eyes.

Brush #E2 is a Flat Angle Brush, which can be used for eyeliner or to fill in your brows. I've used this brush with gel liner and powder products and it works well for both. It's neither too thin nor to thick, and the bristles are the perfect amount of firmness.

#E3 is a Bullet Blender Brush or thicker version of a pencil brush.  I love this for blending shadow along the lower lash line, or highlighting the inner corner of the eye.

#E4 is a Shading Brush which I use to apply and blend concealer under my eyes. I also like it for applying setting powder under the eyes. However, it is also ideal for shading and blending cream or powder eyeshadow over the eye lid. Like the first brush it has duo fiber bristles, which allow you to pick up a decent amount of product, but lightly blend with the white bristles seamlessly.

Above is a closer look at the bristles. As you can see, each brush head is full with soft bristles. 

The back of the box has a Qr barcode in the lower left hand corner which scans to a 
tutorial using all of the brushes in the set!

I love these brushes so much!  I have recently been testing some other brushes from another brand that are a similar size, and of a much higher price point than these. I must say the Kelley Quan New York brand is a true quality brand. You will not be disappointed if you pick up this set.  I honestly didn't know what good quality brushes were before I started using Kelley Quan brushes. I think you will find such a difference between these and the current ones in  your stash. The right brush really makes a difference in your makeup application and for only $22.99 they are certainly worth picking up! Their size makes them great brushes to keep in your makeup bag and carry with you. Those who like to sit close to a mirror when they apply makeup will also appreciate the shorter handle length.

A huge THANK YOU! to Kelley Quan for sending these to me. I really love them, and am excited that they are so easily available to everyone!
