Unimeix Professional 12 +1 piece makeup brushes Review

Leave a Comment
Hey guys!

So this is another discounted item that I received courtesy of the company through Tomoson in exchange for my honest and unbiased review. I was actually on the hunt for new brushes to upgrade my old ones, and when I saw this promotion on the site I had to jump on it. So clearly, the discount did not in any way influence how my review of these brushes came out.

So right away I found these brushes very soft. The foundation brush, blusher brush, contour brush, and fluffy blush are all very dense while still having that softness that you want when applying powder foundations. There is a bit of a smell, so wash them right away and then let them air out. The smell is just the glue used to hold the brush together, nothing bad at all so don’t freak out about it. The brushes themselves feel very sturdy, and the spooly doesn’t twist out of the handle like most cheap brands do when I tried messing with it.

In the set, you receive twelve brushes and one extra oval toothbrush that resembles the Artis brushes which are all the rage right now. The brushes included in this set are: A foundation brush, a blush brush, a contour brush, a fluffy brush, a large eyeshadow brush, a small eyeshadow brush, a lip brush, an angled brow brush, a fan brush, a sponge applicator brush, a spooly brush, an eyebrow comb brush, and the oval toothbrush.

They arrived very neatly individually wrapped in plastic sleeves inside the super cute flower printed carrying case. The four larger brushes (Foundation, blush, contour, fluff, and the fan) all had harder plastic covering the bristles, and the rest had the plastic sleeves, but they did go all the way over the brush part except for the longer ones like the spooly brush.

The case itself is very cute you guys, like the flower print is so pretty. I can easily fit every one of these brushes inside, including the toothbrush and fold it up. And while it is folded up the case has a little flap that comes down to cover the brushes so that dust and other stuff can’t really mess with then when you put them in your bag.

On to how the brushes applied…

So I did my entire face today using just these brushes, and I wasn’t disappointed!!
I did a very basic face. Primer & BB cream first and followed that by using the eyebrow brush and my Colourpop eyebrow colour and LA Girl inspiring eye tin and filled in what I could of my brows. Long story short, I have an OCD issue with plucking my brows, literally sit there and pluck my hairs out without even thinking about it. Working on growing them back, but the thinness and structure of the brush makes for perfect even lines, it applies the eyebrow colour flawlessly and the powder also. I never notice any fallout with eyebrow powder, so there was no issue with this brush on that either. I followed that up by using the powder brush to apply a layer of my Estee Lauder Stay in Place powder makeup. The powder brush applied it very evenly, and I didn’t really notice a lot of fallout powder on my shirt, which was black so I would have noticed. Then I used the blusher brush to apply my Too Faced Snow Bunny bronzer/highlighter (I’m honestly not sure which it is supposed to be) and applied it over my cheeks and cheekbone to cheat a quick contour look. (Lazy day, don’t judge me) But then I decided F*** it and used the toothbrush to apply a little contour using my KVD Shade + Light kit. It really felt weird using this to blend it in, but I felt like it did better than my old E.L.F Kabuki does. The contour brush I used to apply a little bit of concealer under my eyes and on a few red spots on my face.

For my eyes, I used the large eyeshadow brush and the small eyeshadow brush with my Too Faced Sweet Peach palette, which I am 100% obsessed with omg! There was a little bit of fallout, but that was kinda my fault because I forgot to tap the extra powder off my brush before applying. Besides, it was mainly in the inner corner of my eye to begin with, so it was super easy to brush off with the powder brush. I finished the look by using the lip brush and lining my bottom lid. Always good to find multiple uses for brushes, it makes the set seem more useful!

Here is my face after I finished my look with the brushes. I did end up using the eyelash spooly also because I’m using super cheap dollar tree mascara for now and I had major clumping going on. So I used it to even out the look a bit.

All in all, I really think the set is worth it. Every brush has a use, except for the sponge applicator, but that is because I haven’t used a brush like that since like… I don’t know maybe 9th grade? So I just didn’t even want to bother with it at all.

Final thoughts:

The price of these brushes is a great value for the price, $17.99 for all 13 of these brushes and the carrying case. They feel very sturdy. I think they would be a good buy for someone who is just getting into makeup and doesn’t want to spend a bunch of money on expensive brushes, or for someone who wants the fell and look of expensive brushes without the price. Because to be perfectly honest, the way these brushes feel is very similar to my Too Faced Teddy Bear Hair brushes. So there’s a good comparison for you guys to think about.
Well, that’s my review on these brushes. I hope I answered any questions you might have about the quality. If you have any questions about these brushes please feel free to leave a comment below.

Peace, Love & Happiness guys,
