Scroll down for the lowdown on the Sonia Kashuk Ombre Obsessed LE Makeup Brush Set for Fall 2015.
The Ombre Obsessed Makeup Brush Set consists of seven brushes:
- Dual-fibre multipurpose brush
- Dense blending brush
- Pointed concealer brush
- Eyeshadow brush
- Blending brush
- Pointed smudge brush
- Smudge/Eyeliner brush
I had expected the dual-fibre multipurpose brush to be a stippling brush, but I find it works best to blend out blushes and bronzers. The bristles crinkle up when I wash the brush, so I have to put it into a brush guard or use cellophane wrap once it dries to get it back in shape.
On the other hand, the dense blending brush is a keeper. I use it for buffing in pressed powder - usually Laura Mercier Translucent Pressed Powder. I have had no problems while washing this - or the other brushes in this set.
The eyeshadow brush works a treat on my deep-set lids. I had worried the blending brush would be too large for my deep-set eyes, but I have no problems with it. The pointed smudge brush is good for swirling in deeper shadows in the crease for a gradient effect. Finally, there is a little smudge brush which doubles as an eyeliner brush.

VerdictAt $27.99, the Sonia Kashuk Ombre Obsessed seven-brush set is a steal. It contains the essential brushes you need for eye makeup and includes a couple of powder brushes as well. Plus, they are ombre! They will definitely look good among your brushes or on your vanity.
Downside? This is a limited edition set. I was lucky - my Dad was a-travelling and I pressured him into taking along a shopping list. If you spot a set, grab it fast even if you have brush overload - it will serve as a nifty Christmas prezzie for someone without breaking the bank. Online, it is only available here.
