Since the rise in popularity of the uniquely shaped Artis Brushes that I reviewed last year (see review here) I’ve received a lot of requests to review similar style brushes and find the best and most affordable “dupe.” Since many have found that the Artis Brushes are sold out or unavailable very often and when they are ready to purchase.
I’m always up for a challenge so I have been on the search for brush sets that were similar, and then I found My Makeup Brush Set online. With several brush sets and other makeup tools available it was the perfect site to see what answers I could found for you guys.
I discovered the Oval Brush 10 piece set. Available in many handle sizes shapes this set is great for applying primer to yourself or clients (my favorite!), applying foundation and even loose and pressed powder. The density makes it perfecting for blending liquids, creams and powders.

Texture | The Makeup Brush Set Oval Brush bristles are very dense within the setting. The tips of the bristles are shaped well and give a soft fluffy feel. The bristles appears to be set inside the casing with string and an adhesive but the hair is so dense it is hard to tell on all the brushes without possibly damaging them.
Handle Type | The Makeup Brush Set Oval Brush handles are made with continuous responsive and flexible plastic.
Ferrule Material | These brushes have no ferrule. It appears to be set inside the casing with string and then an adhesive but the hair is so dense it is hard to tell on all the brushes without possibly damaging them.
Washability | The Makeup Brush Set Oval Brushes wash well but take a little bit longer to dry, which should be expected of more dense brushes. After 5 washes with water and Dawn soap, there was no shedding or color bleed.
Stability | After usage and several washings, I didn’t experience any change in any of the brushes within this set.
Overall | This is a great set for a great price. I’ve seen a lot of similar brushes that are not created with this stability. I like how the brushes move with the pressure applied against them, that helps with smooth application of powders and liquid. I did notice that the smaller brushes like “F” and “I” do not have the same density. However, the brush bristles are still very dense and easy to clean and sanitize. If you are interested in the oval brushes, this is a great set to add to your collection.
