Cerro Qreen Fibre Wool Makeup Brush Set (7 pcs) - Pink

♫ B1A4 - Lonely (없구나)
Cerro Qreen Fibre Wool Makeup Brush Set - Pink
I'll admit, I'm not a big user of makeup brushes. I prefer using my fingers to apply my base makeup, and the only brush I use frequently is a blush brush (although I've been reaching for my eyeliner brush a bit more often these days). Anyway, the point is, I've never had a proper makeup brush set before, so when I received this 7-piece Cerro Qreen Fibre Wool Makeup Brush Set from Natta Cosme, I was pretty excited to try it out.
Embossed Cerro Qreen logo
The brushes are housed inside a wraparound-style pouch made from PU leather, with the Cerro Qreen logo embossed at the bottom right side.

Practical design
The flap at the top is folded down to protect the brushes during storage. This is great when you're traveling and don't have the time to properly clean the brushes, and prevents them from staining the other brushes when the pouch is folded.
Pink-white ombre bristles
The 7-piece brush set comes in a lovely sweet pink pouch, with pink handles and pink-white ombre bristles. Anything cute, pink and functional is definitely a yes in my book! (✿ ♥‿♥)

I only have one gripe with this product, and that is the pouch, which doesn't seem very well-made. As you can see in the photos above, the stitching is shoddy and uneven. (╯_╰)

However, the brushes themselves are great, very soft yet firm without shedding any hairs during application and washing.

Not sure which brush is used for what makeup product? Here's a handy little pictorial guide for you! :)
Brush guide
This is a pretty basic makeup brush set, so you have the powder brush, eyeshadow brush, eyeliner brush and eyebrow brush. However, don't let that stop you from using the brushes for other functions besides the ones stated above. Makeup is all about creativity, after all! (≧∇≦)

The powder brush is big and fluffy, which makes it suitable for application of loose powder, blush and bronzer.

The eyeshadow brushes can be used for powder and cream eyeshadows, as they are made from synthetic bristles. The big eyeshadow brush can also be used to blend concealer under the eyes or on problem spots.

The eyeliner brush is used mainly to apply cream or gel eyeliner. However, you can also use it as a lip brush to get that perfectly shaped pout! ;)

I seldom use eyebrow brushes, but this one can be used for applying eyebrow powder and as an angled eyeliner brush. As for the eyelash brush/wand, you can use it to groom your eyebrows as well as eyelashes.

I hope you'll find these tips handy! Remember, it's all about creativity, so don't limit yourself to using these brushes for only one function! As long as it works for you, just go with the flow. (✿◠‿◠)

That's a cute brush set! I love the color. It's pink and girly. :)

I prefer to use my fingers too when applying makeup, but lately, I've been checking out brushes.

I have only 4 brushes as of the moment, and I agree with what you've said. It's all about creativity!

Great post you have, Laura!

The pink gradation in the brush hairs looks very cute. :) I should invest in a good brush set too, I think I only have two professional looking brushes.
