JW Cosmetics- Brush Reviews

So here's part 2 of my JW Cosmetic Review.
I'm so glad you found my previous entry helpful (that's what I'm here for!)
This will be a review on JW Cosmetic Brushes- one's that are IMO, worth buying!
Some are pretty duplicatable to other brands!






520 BUFFER BRUSH
Super soft! Great for powders!!
Highly recommended.
Price: $13.99





524 LARGE POWDER BRUSH
Not very soft.
Makes a great body brush for bronzers, highlighters, etc.
Price: $15.99





506 Circular Foundation Brush
Very very soft.
A little flimsy, so I wouldn't recommend this for foundation.
Excellent highlighter brush (for MSF's, etc.)
Price: $12.99

MAC 187, JW Circular Foundation, & MAC 188

MAC 187, JW Circular Foundation, & MAC 188

MAC 187 vs. JW Circular Foundation Brush
MAC 187 is way more dense, making it the perfect foundation brush.

JW Circular Foundation brush is super soft, and makes a great highlighting brush.




660 Large Angle Crease Brush
Dense, not very soft.
Applies concealer very well.
Recommended.
Price: $8.99





634 Blender Brush
Soft, blends okay.
Recommended.
Price: $8.99

MAC 217 vs. JW Blender
They kind of look similar, however, the MAC brush is more FULL and fluffy.

630 Smudger Brush
Not as dense and pointed as the MAC 219.
But it is a good brush for cutting-the-crease.
Recommended.
Price: $7.99

Hey hun, Medi-Morphosis costs $38 for the normal size. And $15 for the travel size. I can swap you for a travel size if you want :)

I guess I am a couple of years late :/. You mentioned that you love the J.W. 632, I was just wondering if there are any big differences between this brush and the mac 239, ie density? Does the 632 pack on color well? Thanks soo much!!

Whitney & the full effect said...

Hi Amanda! In this post, I show the difference of the MAC 239 and the JW 632 (just look at the photos)... to me, nothing beats the mac 239 but I do find myself using the JW one quite often because YES it packs on color! :)
just not as luxurious as the mac one.
