Everyone who knows me personally knows that I love makeup. Unfortunately, even if I wanted to buy and try every makeup item accessible to me that would be unreasonable and also frivolous. I have a budget to respect. It does allow me enough to treat myself here and there, but I am still mindful of how I spend my money even for fun things that I love like makeup.

When I first started my makeup collection I had one brush set.  It was an inexpensive travel set from Walmart that I truly never really used. I used the little brushes that came with the makeup item or the foam tips (for eyeshadow).

When my interest in makeup peeked, I realized that I needed real brushes.  My first brush set was from eBay, from a company in China. I got it as a gift with my Manly 120 eyeshadow palette. Then, I got another brush set (Sigma travel set) for my birthday that same year. After that, maybe a year or two later I got a brush set from BH Cosmetics.  A few months after that, I found out about Sedona Lace. 

Just like I usually do, I searched for reviews and You Tube videos on this company and their products. Most of the reviews were good. And so, I decided to purchase a brush set.  

I needed a full size, full set to travel with for my cousin's wedding in Europe.  This special occasion required a complete set of full-size brushes. I found a coupon code and waited for a sale and ordered my brush set online.

The website is quite easy to navigate and they do offer much more than makeup brushes.  For someone starting out in makeup, it is a great company to consider. They offer a wide variety of makeup products at very affordable prices.

The brush set I chose was the 12 Piece Professional Makeup Brushes - Pink. The day I purchase it, the set was on sale for 47.96$ and I also had a 4$ off coupon code I got from one of my You Tuber.  However, for Canada, shipping was 11.95$.  So in the end my total was 55.91$.  Still that is an excellent price for a complete brush set.

My comments on shedding are that I've realized over the years that some makeup brushes will shed more than others. That doesn't necessarily mean that they are bad quality.  In my experience, it's the type of hairs used to make the brushes that can cause them to shed. Synthetic brushes shed less from what I have observed. Sedona Lace does have this same brush set in synthetic. It also got great reviews on You Tube.

After using this brush set for more than one year, I can say that I do recommend it.  I compare the quality to my Sigma brush set with which I've also experimented some shedding. In both case, it wasn't a major issue for me. I really like them even more than I originally thought.

I'm planning my next purchase from Sedona Lace and I can't wait!

I posted a video about this brush set when I first got it.  I did the review a few days after receiving the brushes.  I may do an updated video, but for now, here's what I had to say about them.
