Sonia Kashuk Limited Edition 15 Piece Professional Brush Set

With my recent purchase of brushes, I saw this set at Target, but passed it up.  Until I started seeing buzz around it and eventually saw it on my lovely gal @ginaism's Instagram and saw that they were on sale and there was a Cartwheel coupon that could be applied.  Umm, yes!  The online stock availability was not showing correct amounts and went to two Targets with no luck.  Third time was the charm and I snagged the last set in the store.

What the website says:

The ultimate collection in both function and style, this comprehensive set of professional-quality brushes includes the best of the best to create a flawless face.  Deep eggplant purple handles, bright radiant orchid- inspired violet bristles and chic gold trim highlight the refined aesthetic of Sonia's signature style.  The collection features a powder brush, blusher brush, duo fiber buffing brush, synthetic angled multipurpose brush, contour brush, foundation brush, concealer brush, blending brush, crease brush, small eye shadow brush, fluffy eye shadow brush, precision pencil brush, synthetic angled liner brush, smudge brush and a spoolie for flawless and fashionable application and blending for face, eyes and cheeks.

Here are the brushes I would use from this set on the daily: powder, blusher, synthetic angled multipurpose, crease and small shadow.

The others are nice additions, but I wouldn't need to use them everyday since my beauty routine is fairly simple.  I am looking forward to practicing more contour techniques with the contour brush!

Pros:  -Variety of brushes
          -Beautiful color and design
          -Affordable full set of brushes
          -Cruelty free brushes

Cons:  -Bit of a smell.  Hoping it will dissipate after a wash.

Cost: $39.99 - it was on sale for $35.99 and I used a Cartwheel coupon that brought the price down to $32.39, making each brush just about $2.16 each.  What a bargain!

Would I recommend this to a friend?  YES!  If you are lucky and able to get a set at a Target store or online, then get one!  Even at regular price, it is still about $2.67 each brush which is a fantastic deal.  If you're scouring eBay for this set, be aware that sellers are marking up this set to up to $103.  That is is pretty ridiculous.  If you can find a seller that is being reasonable with their price, then purchase.
