I’m not a huge fan of Harry Potter’s books or movies, yeah I watched the movies but you know can’t call myself the HUGE fan. Anyway, I saw an IG store posted the picture a I was like, ” Oh my God, I shall have those magical brushes !” And here it is. These brushes are not the authentic one, it’s the fake version. I bought it ’cause it’s affordable, I can’t afford the original one. That’s an excuse ? Yeah whatever.
The package consists of a black velvet pouch and 5 eye brushes. The handle of the brushes is heavy, not sure what its made of maybe like a metal or something similar. They don’t have anything printed on its handle, no brushes’ name or usage, but it’s easy to recognise its usage. All the hair are pretty soft, it won’t hurt your face at least. I’ve already used and washed it more than 5 times, the hair won’t fall and the smoothness remains.
I’m not sure whose wands these are, so I’m just guessing based on this website and depending on my not-really-good eyesight when I write this.
Albus Dumbledore – Blending Brush
I usually use this to blend the eyeshadow on my crease. It fits my eyes’ size perfectly, not too small not to big. Although it’s a little bit dense on the bridge of the hair, but not a problem I can make it works.
Harry Potter – Pointed Brush
This brush is dense yet still soft, using it to apply dark colour eyeshadow (for smokey eyes) on the outer tip of my eyelids. Recently, I washed the brushes and this pointed brush was broken, the hair loose ’cause the glue no longer sticky. I took out the hair then replaced it with another hair brush. Yeah the handle still in good condition, thanks God !
Hermione Granger – Flat Angled Brush
This is the smallest brush in this set, I uses it to apply the eyeshadow on my lower lash-line. It can also be used for applying gel eyeliner and defining eyebrows.
Ronald Weasley – Angled Brush
This is the fluffiest brush in this set, I sometimes use it to blend the eyeshadow on my crease but it’s too big for my eye. So yeah I also use it to (powder) contour my nose.
Lord Voldemort – Flat Brush
I use this small brush to tap the eyeshadow on my eyelids. The performance is not really good. I thought the eyeshadow was the problem, but after trying it with another eyeshadows, the performance still not good. I must spray water or face mist so the eyeshadow will stick to the brush.
I just wash it with cold water and antiseptic soap or baby shampoo, clean it thoroughly by swirling the brushes on patterned platform, then rinse with luke-warm water. Dry it by press it on paper towel, I sometimes use hair-dryer on low heat when the weather is not sunny. It takes 2 or 3 days to completely dry.
Where to Buy ?
I bought this set in an online shop for IDR 120.000 (excluding the shipping cost). Not sure whether they still sell it though.
