Luuux Brush Set Review

It has been quite some time since I've received my luuux brush set, but I am finally going to do a review on them today! I've just been busy and I kinda keep forgetting... (maybe I should start writing things down.. I am working on doing this more often because I hear that it is essential for doing well in college.) Usually I just have due dates, homework, test dates swirling around in my mind. It's pretty common for me at night to be like.. "oops I forgot I had to this for tomorrow!!" Yup, and then I have to push my bed time/night routine back to do the assignment. It's not good so I am working on changing this!!

Luuux Brush Set Review

Luuux Brush Set Review

It's been about a month since I received this brush set from luuux. The brushes were part of a promotion/gift for us on the holiday from Luuux. A total of 5 sets of these brushes were given over the course  of the month and I really love how luuux did that for us. It shows us that they really do appreciate us on the site!
 I have been on luuux since the year they first began. I'm not exactly sure what year (2009 or 2010 pops to my head), but I do remember that I joined after hearing a youtuber rave it!
The site back then had the same concept as it does today which is to be able to earn rewards for doing what you love, blogging. However, the way you earn points for rewards has changed. Instead of getting points for "like" and "comments", we are now awarded points for the number of views we get!

Luuux Brush Set Review

I'm very excited to be reviewing the brushes today because this is the first brush set I have ever had! I was notified of winning the brush set and within a week, the brushes had arrived at my house! The set contains 12 brushes neatly placed inside a brush bag. I have to say that the bag used to hold there brushes are really cute! It resembles a clutch and if it wasn't a brush bag, I could see myself carrying this cute bag around around! The bag is made of a super soft and seems pretty strong, though I know it isn't leather. The bag is held together with a silver clasp.

Luuux Brush Set Review Limited Edition

Luuux Brush Set Review Face Brushes

Luuux Brush Set Review eye Brushes

When you open the bag and unroll it, you will notice that there are 12 brushes neatly placed into slots- 5 face brushes, 6 eye brushes, and 1 lip brush.There are 4 empty slots for you to put your own brushes which I like a lot. The brushes are all super soft, but they do tend to shed a bit. I'm sure the shedding will stop with more uses though.


 L150- This is a large powder brush and is perfect for applying loose powder products. The brush is very dense with a rounder top.

L187- This brush is very pretty and it looks like it is best for applying a light layer of powders or even for brushing away excess makeup. I really like the design of this brush since it's black and white, quite dense and super soft!

L116- This is the blush brush and is perfect for applying and shaping blush onto your face. It's not too dense which is ideal since you don't want to end up with too much blush on your cheeks! Sadly though, I don't wear blush this often so I personally don't see myself using this one that often.

L190- This is the foundation brush from luuux. This brush isn't too thick and has less bristles than the others. The brush is quite stiff which is nice for getting more coverage.!

L224- This is the eye shadow brush. It's a bit smaller and from experience, it seems to be ideal for picking up cream based products as opposed to loose powder. It picks up color very nicely and blends it well too!

Luuux Eye Brushes Review

L217- This brush is interesting. I'm actually not really sure what it is suppose to be used for.. It's a nice brush nevertheless. It seems shorter in length than the other brushes, but the bristles are all very soft. You could possible use it for blending maybe?

L195- This is the concealer brush in the set. The brush is a tanish color as opposed to black or white and I actually really love this brush. It's used to apply concealer and I find it to work very well when applying concealer to the under eye area.

L239- This brush is perfect for shading and blending powders onto your skin. It's pretty stiff and like the other brushes, it is very soft.

L208- This is an angled brush and is prefect for doing your eyeliner or eyebrows. The only thing I have to say though is that the brush might not be stiff enough to do eyeliner, at least for me since I always tightline. It is very nice though for drawing your eyebrows though!

L219- Again, I am not exactly sure what this brush is for, but I personally use it for defining my eye crease with shadow. It's very percise and stiff, but not quite as angled as the L208 so I can't use it to do my eyeliner.

L242- This brush is very versatile. It could be used for applying eyeshadow or if you want to pack on foundation/ concealer, this brush is prefect. I really love this brush as it does pick up a lot of product when you need it too!

Luuux Lip Brush Set Review

L316- This brush is probably the one that I am the most excited about! It's very unique and the design behind it is amazing. It's a lip brush and actually resembled a mini bullet hehe. Once you open the case, you nice that there is a mini brush inside used for applying lip color. The brush is very stiff and the perfect size for your lips. The little carrying case keeps everything sanitary and you can actually put some lip color inside the case so when you want to reapply, it is pretty easy!

Overall, I'm extremely satisfied with this set of brushes from Luuux. The brushes all felt very good and they work very well. I was a bit confused about a few of the brushes, but I anticipated that since I have never had a whole brush set before (therefore making this review a bit harder hehe). The concealer brush is very nice and the lip brush is my favorite. I would recommend this set to someone who hasn't really had a whole brush set before as it seems like a great started kit to build on. If you want to check out Luuux, just click here. =)

In other news, my midterms are finally finished as of this Friday. Semester 2 starts this Monday and I have weight training now instead of Virtual High School ( I honestly do not recommend taking it if you like talking to others in person) and I can't wait! Semester 2, aka, my last semester ever of high school, here I come! 

What is your opinion on this brush set?
Have you ever heard of Luuux?
Do you prefer using brushes or your fingers to apply makeup? I always hear beauty gurus telling us to use brushes, but I have always used my fingers more because I feel like I have more control. 

***** Really Random I know, but I just got an email from Stony Brook telling me I was accepted!! ***** Yay!! 2 out of 8 schools so far!

  1. I love the packaging and the selection of brushes they look sturdy but the big test its when you use for a while and see if they apply well and handle being wash. Have a great Sunday.

  28. Haha, I do the same thing! I used to never use a planbook, but now I create daily agendas for myself so I can get everything done! It's been really helpful, so far.

    This brush set is exquisite! I only occasionally apply minimal makeup, so I would be completely befuddled by these haha. Glad they were up to your expectations though!

    And glad to hear your midterms are done. Virtual high school sounds intriguing. The only online classes I've taken were to fulfill graduation requirements that I couldn't fit in my schedule, like online Health and online gym. I didn't really like either of them, but I was glad to get my credits easily! Here's to last semester of high school for us! keep me updated on your college deets :)

    Anyways, loved that trendy Mindy top outfit! Congrats on your own Dahlia wolf piece! And those nail stickers were exquisite. So nice of you to let your sister choose something!

    Have a wonderful week, Mindy!

    1. Thanks for your experience!! This makes me want to use a planner more than ever now!
      I think I will really need it for college because according to youtubers (I have been obsessed with college videos) they are use organizers!

      hehe, I don't use makeup that often as well , but it's just so nice to have them. I do wear makeup during important events though so I will be using this!

      Yeah, Virtual high school is interesting! ohh online gym? That is very intriguing. How did that go hehe? I really wonder !
      Thank you!! The Dahlia Wolf piece is my favorite thing ever!

  33. HeLLo Mindy,

    You reminds me of my Uni years where I had lots and lots of assignment to do. Back then, I had to make sure that my pointer would not fall below 2.5, otherwise I'd be kicked out from the Uni.
    And I noticed that people in US, get great gifts such as your brushes. In my country, a brush costs a lot. What more to say 12 brushes.

    1. Sorry, I've never heard of Luux. Maybe because I don't buy make ups.
