My First Time using MixNBlend goat hair brushes

Makeup brushes. OH BOY! There are so many different brands, types and materials to choose that it might get a bit overwhelming for some. Not all brushes are created equal, and different brushes are meant for different products to achieve different results. My current obsession is something a bit out of the ordinary. I had no idea about the differences in synthetic and natural brushes and I finally got to try a set of goat hair brushes from the Mix N Blend team (THANKS SO SO MUCH!) This brush set came with a brush holder with buttons on the side. Perfect for travelling and looked super cute on my vanity. 

Natural makeup brushes are made up of various animal hair. The Mix N Blend goat hair brushes were some of the softest I've ever touched. These brushes felt really durable and can actually get better the more you use them. I didn't like how a few hairs kept falling from the brushes the first few times I used them. The shedding did get better the more I used them and I'm glad I didn't dismiss these brushes because of the shedding. I noticed I did get a better application when I used powder products. This could be because natural bristles move more freely so I was able to not only pick up more product, but also blend it out properly. 

I'm happy to add some of  these new goat hair brushes to my makeup arsenal, but I'm not ready to ditch the synthetic brushes just yet.  I still use a liquid tinted moisturizer and the goat hair foundation brush doesn't do well with liquid or cream products.
