Coastal Scents 12 Pieces Brush Set [review]

When you have decided to get into makeup, you should do invest to at least a good quality brush set. Good quality brushes are essential to learn make up, because it's like our weapon in war field :D
I can't remember when I bought this brush set (maybe in 2013?), but one day when I was about to buy new brush set, a promotion from Coastal Scents popped out before my eyes and I immediately purchased it XDD If I'm not mistaken, I bought this brush set for IDR 250,000 from local online shop.

So, this is my brief review about my daily brush set ^.^

I've tried these brushes for months now.. Though their bristles might be no the softest, but they are gentle enough for my skin. The results are streak-free and their bristles are almost never fall out. So far, I'm satisfied with its overall quality ^_^ These brush set is definitely worth to try, especially for beginners with tight budget :D

Aku sudah mencoba kuas makeup ini selama berbulan-bulan.. Bulu-bulu kuasnya mungkin bukan yang paling halus, tapi lumayan lah untuk dipake sebagai alat "perang buat" pemula. Hasilnya ngga bikin ada garis-garis di kulit dan bulu-bulunya juga hampir nggak pernah rontok. Sejauh ini sih aku lumayan puas dengan kualitasnya ^_^ Set kuas ini lumayan bagus kalau mau dicoba, terutama bagi pemula dalam hal make up yang pengen coba-coba :D

Pros (+)
+ Affordable
+ Good quality
+ Very minimal fall out of bristles
+ Doesn't take much space in bag (quite travel-friendly)
+ Contains 12 essential-brushes for beginners
+ Quite thick leather case
+ Sturdy handles

Cons (-)
- The brow comb is so rough >_< I prefer my eyebrow mascara-brush
- The handle of eye makeup brushes are a bit too long for self-makeup purpose
- Some of big brushes' ferrule are quite fragile :s 

What's brush set for beginners that you recommend, guys? ^_^
