PRODUCT REVIEW: MAC'S KEEPSAKES MINERALIZE BRUSH KIT
Last 2014 Holiday, MAC released a limited edition brushes and cosmetics. They call the limited edition theme, Keepsakes Collection. Ever since I saw that it is all glittery and has a Cameo as the main highlight, I knew I am in love.
I love using Cameos specially on my jewelries, I find it classy and vintage. I wonder how great it will be if I use a Cameo everyday through my cosmetics!
Sadly, when I first saw it released on market in the Philippines, I find it really expensive. I know that I have to turn my back away from it.
To keep things positive, an opportunity presented itself. I found a brand new MAC Keepsakes Mineralize Brush Kit on sale from an acquaintance for only 2,500php (Instead of $52-63)! Yes, it is still quite expensive but at the time that it was offered, I have an extra money from my overtime pays...so I decided to splurge!
The MAC Keepsakes Mineralize Brush Kit is a silver glittering pouch with pearls alongside the zipper. I am satisfied on how MAC give quality to their products, even though it is glittery, it does not fall out from the pouch and cause a mess.
Lining Material: 100% Polyester
I am in love with the zipper of the pouch, because it is a Cameo Face. At first, I was afraid that it will easily be broken because it is a cameo and it has no frame but I find the zipper quite sturdy.
Now, let us check out the brushes! The kit contains 4 travel size brushes, namely:
187SE Duo Fibre Face Brush
130SE Short Duo Fibre Brush
286SE Duo Fibre Tapered Blending Brush
287SE Duo Fibre Eye Shadow Brush
The travel size brushes are totally fine with me because I really have a small hands so this tiny brushes are just exact for me. The brushes are as soft as the permanent edition brushes and it can still apply creams, liquids and powders like the big size brushes of MAC. The bristles does not fall out. As recommended from my MAC makeup artists friends, this is one of the great and affordable limited edition brushes that MAC has released. The Keepsakes Mineralize Brush Kit also includes the basic brushes that I need.
Body Material: 63% PU. 37% PET.
