Everything You Need to Know About the Itslikelymakeup / Furless Rose Gold Must Have Pro Makeup Brush Set

Everything You Need to Know About the Itslikelymakeup / Furless Rose Gold Must Have Pro Makeup Brush Set

As some of you may have seen on Twitter, I recently purchased a brand new brush set from Furless Cosmetics. This set is a collaboration with Jordi Dreher better known by her YouTube handle @Itslikelymakeup. I am no stranger to the Furless brand.  I have both purchased brushes from them, and reviewed brushes sent to me by them in the past.  This set I purchased with my own money. I am familiar with the quality of brush that Furless sells, and I could not pass up this full set in such a beautiful color, complete with a brush apron.  

Furless brushes are 100% vegan. This set has long handles, and super soft bristles.  The value is truly amazing.  For the price of $169.95, I got 20 professional grade brushes, complete with a super useful brush apron that snaps close for easy storage.  While the beautiful packaging includes a detailed list of how Jordi likes to use each brush, I thought it would be helpful to share how I use them as well. 

 Brushes included in the set, and my favorite way to use them:

PR01M - I really love this brush for applying eye primer
PRO2E - This eyeshadow brush works great both for applying shadow in the crease & blending 
PRO3M - This brush works well for applying eyeshadow to the outer and inner corner of eye when creating a halo look
PRO4M - I love using this brush damp for foiling eyeshadow. The flat shape helps paint on the pigment for that super metallic look 
PRO2M - I find this size and shape brush super useful for a variety of things. I use it to apply my under brow highlight, inner corner highlight and to apply white eyeshadow primer, or concealer to the eyelid when creating a cut crease 
PRO8E - I use this brush to apply concealer around the brows & under eyes
PRO1F - This brush is the perfect size and shape for highlighting.  I love it for applying cream highlight to the cheekbones or setting under eye concealer with a matte highlighting powder 
PRO2F - This has become my go-to brush for applying powder contour to emphasize cheekbones, and shadow the perimeter of the face 
PRO4F - Just like Jordi, this is absolutely my new favorite foundation brush.  Just apply foundation to the face, and use this brush to buff into the skin for a flawless finish
PRO5F - Perfect brush for applying powder blush 
PRO3F - This is a huge, full-headed brush that is great for the body. I love using it to bronze up the neck and decolletage area, as well as for adding warmth to the perimeter of the face 
PRO4E - I find myself using this brush mostly for applying eyeshadow to the crease of the eye 
PRO5M (Fan brush) - This is the largest fan brush in my collection. It picks up and applies powder highlight beautifully 
PRO1E - This is a brow brush/lash comb.  The lash comb comes with a convenient cover that makes me wonder why other brushes like it don't have one!
PRO6M - I love this brush for applying and blending eyeshadow along the lower lash line 
PRO7E - I use this brush to apply powder to the eye area to set concealer, and also to blend eyeshadow concealer, blending eye shadow
PRO1L (lip brush) - This brush is just the perfect lip brush to apply color to the lips. I love it so much that I have several in a different color, from the original Furless Must-Have Brush Set
PRO6F - This brush is ideal for applying cream blush
PRO6E - Jordi uses this one to create freckles, but I find it to be the perfect brush to use with gel eyeliner 
PRO7M - I like using this brush to apply powder shadow along the lash line for a softer eyeliner look.  This can also be used to fill in brows 

While I honestly love all of the brushes in the set, if I had to pick my 3 favorites, they would have to be the PRO4F, PRO2E and the PRO5M.  These brushes are currently only available in the complete set, but hopefully with enough demand, Furless will sell them individually at some point. I would like to buy multiples of some of my favorites. 

Here is a closer look at the eye brushes and detail brushes in the set: 

Here is a closer look at the larger face brushes in the set: 

I ordered this set online, and they arrived in the mail on March 20th. I have used this set almost exclusively since, including cleaning them.  If you are worried about the white bristles staining, I tested them with bright pigments, and they have all still cleaned easily.  Sometimes I hear makeup artists complain that synthetic bristles aren't as good at picking up powder products as natural hair brushes. I can say with confidence that these brushes easily pick up and blend powder, liquid, and cream products.  In addition to having the brush identifier on each brush, the handles are engraved in a gold font that says, "its likely makeup,"  Before purchasing this set, I had a number of Furless brushes in my collection.  I have had them and used them for years, and I have never had one brush from this brand shed, or break.

I can highly recommend this brush set for any makeup artist or makeup enthusiast.  Even if you do not follow Jordi on You Tube (but you really should, she is very talented), these brushes are too beautiful to pass up.  The set really includes everything you could possibly need for a full face of makeup, and then some. They look beautiful displayed on a makeup table, but the brush apron is so practical that it also acts as the perfect storage case to protect your brushes from dust. 

As many of you know, I own a ton of brushes. I have never, in all the years that I have been buying brushes, had a set arrive in packaging as stunning as this one did.  I can tell a lot of thought went into this collab, and I truly appreciate the work that went into creating them. 

There are only a few sets left in the Furless Cosmetics Australian store, but they are still available on their US site.  

If you have any additional questions on the set, please let me know in the comments below, or reach out to me on Twitter @MakeupMatters1. 

Did you purchase this set?  Do you plan on buying it?  What is your favorite makeup look from @itslikelymakeup?
