Hi! Just popped in to show my Oriflame brush roll + my makeup brushes collection today. I carried all of my makeup brushes with me and all of them except two fit in one brush roll! I carried minimal cosmetics and accessories with me while coming to Korea. I knew would be shopping and building up my collection in no time, haha. So anyway, here is the collage of my brush roll and makeup brushes.

I got this brush roll last year when it was newly launched alongwith a blending brush. It looks a lot like MAC 224 that I have (as you can see in the picture). These are pretty much all of the brushes that I have at this moment. I got rid of many of my cheap makeup brushes at the end of December during a huge cleanup drive. I love starting afresh every year and since I started a beauty blog, I figured will build my collection anyway so i let go of the things that were not particularly good.
I have hardly used the Smashbox eye liner brush (bought in Sweden) but it is super soft to touch and helped me learn smokey eye effect when I first started. I used to apply the dark shade on my crease using this brush and then blend it with the blending brush.
MAC 224 is obviously a bestseller and I really like how similar Oriflame blending brush (bought last year) is to MAC 224. And it costs 1/3rd of MAC 224!
Eco tools eyeshadow brush, which I will be reviewing separately, is one of the most dense and big eyeshadow brushes I have ever seen and I love it. It packs just the right amount of the color on the eyelids. And it is eco-friendly. I had bought it in Sweden in the end of 2010.
The oriflame eyeshadow and foundation brushes also came back with me from Sweden. I am not a huge fan of the eyeshadow brush because it is to small and thin, but I really like the foundation brush.
All of the Oriflame brushes with crystal handle come in a leather style click-button cylindrical container. I have already talked about them in my Oriflame cosmetics brush kit post. They are a basic set and quite suitable for a beginner. I have used them for quite sometime and they are amazing for the price and quality.
The Elizabeth Arden powder brush is the softest makeup brush I have even used and it is very dense and picks up just the right amount of product. It is a bit tapered on the sides. It is very soft to touch and does not shed at all even after washing. I bought this brush also in Sweden in 2010. It is my HG powder brush!
I also like the faux-leather brush roll that Oriflame came out with last year. I bought it in the same month it was launched and I always suggest it to others. it is travel friendly and has enough room for 8 brushes. it also has a small zipper pocket on the right where you can store Q tips or travel size brushes. Worth the money!
Did my Makeup brushes collection shock you? How many brushes do you have in your makeup brush collection?
