Costco Kirkland Signature makeup brushes

Costco.  If you haven’t been to Costco before, you are surely missing out.  Costco opened up in my hometown of Glasgow yonks ago and it was and still is, one of my Mum’s favourite places to shop.  And guess what?  I am turning into my Mum because it is also one of my favourite places to shop now that Costco has opened up in Melbourne.  I love Costco’s freshly baked croissants, large packs of salmon, Skippy Peanut Butter and I really miss the baked potatoes because they don’t sell that here in Melbourne.  Damn them!!!!!!  Anyway, this isn’t a food blog so let me get onto the beauty bit of today’s blog.  During one of our Costco visits, I came upon Kirkland Signature 10 Piece Deluxe Brush Collection with Designer Bag for the bargainous price of $20 AUD and in a flash, it hopped onto my trolley and came home with me.

The 10 brushes are :-

  • Powder : Big and fluffy but not soft enough for my liking
  • Finishing : Good for stippling
  • Foundation Concealer :  LOVE this as it is dense but soft and buffs well
  • Cheek : 2nd favourite and great for contouring
  • Crease Eye : I like to use this on fake crease (I have Asian eyes with no crease – boohoo!)
  • Angled Eye : Not used very often so cannot comment
  • All Over Eye : Great for eye shadow in powder form
  • Liner : I’ve been using this a lot to line my waterline with black matte shadow
  • Highlighting : Haven’t had the need to use this at all
  • Contour Kabuki : Lovely and soft

Here is my review of Kirkland Signature 10 Piece Deluxe Brush Collection with Designer Bag in the Get or Forget format…

Get Kirkland Signature 10 Piece Deluxe Brush Collection with Designer Bag if :-

  • You cannot be bothered washing your make-up brushes (hello, that’s me!)
  • You’re not a make-up brush snob because the handles are plastered with Kirkland Signature logo which is a tad tacky
  • A foundation brush is what you are after.  This is the star in the collection.  Star!!!

Forget Kirkland Signature 10 Piece Deluxe Brush Collection with Designer Bag if :-

  • You have an ultra-sensitive face because some of the brushes are scratchy!!
  • You like tapered handles on make-up brushes.  The handles here aren’t tapered and can make application a tad more difficult.
  • You think you’re getting a “DESIGNER BAG” – it aint designer, I tell ya!  That’s false advertising!!!

My expectations for Kirkland Signature 10 Piece Deluxe Brush Collection with Designer Bag were low and that is why the brushes exceeded my expectations.  For $20 AUD, I am not complaining.  Don’t worry if you don’t have a Costco near you because you can buy it on Amazon

Are you a Costco fan?  Have you tried these make-up brushes?  And do you love Skippy Peanut Butter too?

    I’ve never been to costco (and I live in Syd) only because I don’t have anyone to go with who has the membership card and I can’t be bothered paying a $60 membership card if it’s just me. Also its a 45min drive from where I am. I always wanted to go but I heard it’s great if you’re having a party or etc.

    The brushes are decent for that price and quality, I also heard Kirkland Facial Wipes are pretty decent as well 😀

      @Joline Melina, Yeah, it’s great for bulk buying! Pity it’s so far for you. And ooh, thanks for the heads up – will check out the facial wipes next time I am there 🙂

    I’m a huge brush lover and also a bit of a brush snob. As cool as it looks, I’d prefer to spend $200 on an amazing set than waste $20 on a cheap one. Nail polish and shavers are the things I will only spend a little on. For me $20 on a nail polish is a waste purely because I barely ever wear nail polish.

      @Beauty In A Bottle, Love how everyone spends and saves on different products! I spend more money on skincare for face but hardly anything for my hand and body. For make-up, I go exxy for lipsticks but not much on eyeshadows.
