Review: Coastal Scents Brushes (Part 2)

Happy Friday! Got anything fun planned this weekend?

Today I got a review for you guys on some more makeup brushes by Coastal Scents. If you’ve been reading my blog, you’ll know I reviewd some brushes I got last year, which you can read here if you missed it.

Back at the end of last year, Coastal Scents had a New Year’s sale, where everything on their site was 40% off. I really liked the brushes I got during their Black Friday sale, so I decided to get some more.

First up is the Bionic Flat Top Buffing Brush (BR-110). This is a flat top kabuki brush and many have said it’s pretty much a dupe for the popular F80 brush by Sigma. The only real difference I can see is the bristles on the Coastal Scents brush are a little longer, but reviews I’ve seen comparing the two have stated they perform pretty much exactly the same. The F80 by Sigma sells for $24 whereas the Bionic Flat Top sells for $10.95. I like this brush a lot. It’s great for applying foundation. I’ve used it with both my high end and drugstore foundations and it works great with all of them.

Next is the Classic Blender Brush (BR-C-N06) with natural bristles (they also make a version of this brush with synthetic bristles). This brush is comparable to I think the E35 brush by Sigma. The Coastal Scents brush sells for $2.95, whereas the Sigma brush is $18. This brush is great for blending but also for applying shadow in the crease. Again, I really like this brush a lot. I use it every time I do my eye makeup.

And last is the Elite Small Shadow Brush (BR-B-S01). The closest comparable brush I could find on Sigma’s site is the E57. The brush from Coastal Scents has a bamboo handle and synthetic bristles. This brush is good for applying color all over the lid or to use as a detail brush to highlight the inner corner or add shadow just to the outer corner/V of the lid. I like this brush a lot too and use it almost every day. The Elite Small Shadow brush sells for $3.95. The E57 by Sigma sells for $14.

I have seven brushes now by Coastal Scents and they’re all wonderful. They’re all sturdily made, don’t smell weird, haven’t shed, and wash up good. For the price, they can’t be beat. I definitely plan on getting even more brushes by them.

So there you have it! Have you tried any brushes from Coastal Scents? Tell me your thoughts below in the comments.

As always, thank you all so much for reading and for your support. It means a lot to me. I hope you have a wonderful weekend and I’ll see you again Monday with a new post! 🙂

  1. Great review. I bought a Sonia Kashuk brush for foundation but I wish I would have checked this one out first. I like the Sonia Kashuk one but sometimes it feels like it pokes me, especially if my skin is more on the sensitive side.
