Mark Full Service 5-piece Pro Brush Set was available a few months back on the Avon website, you may still find this set for $32 if you are lucky (they are on average under $6.50 per brush). It’s a great synthetic set of brushes with soft nylon bristles and come in 5 classic brush styles.
I’ve fallen behind on my reviews, so I try to skip anything that isn’t available any more, but I wanted to put these up. If you happen to find other nylon bristle brushes from Mark, then they should be comparable to these.
Mark Full Service 5 piece Pro Brush Set
These brushes come packed in a book-like box, each brush fits perfectly in a cut out hard foam insert. The lid of the box describes each of the brushes as follows:
Eye liner brush – line and define eyes with a precisely tapered brush for easy application. Use with liner or shadow for supreme versatility. (This could easily double up as a brush to apply concealer around the lips to stop a bold lipstick from feathering and ensure a crisp lip line)
Eye shadow brush – sweep and blend eye shadow expertly with this all-purpose brush that distributes color evenly and blends samlessly. Tapered for an eye-contoured design that allows for perfect shaping.
Concealer brush – achieve perfect coverage with this sleek essential for a flawless look. Expertly conceals perfections with a smooth, even finish. (I would also use this for cream shadows)
Blush/bronzer brush – add color, get a glow or simply highlight your best features with this flat-flared brush perfectly designed for creams and powders. (I would be more inclined to use this as a buffing brush for liquid or cream products, such as foundation)
Powder brush – for sweeping on any powder – pressed, loose or powder foundation. A multi purpose brush, great for finishing powder.
The pink ferrule and handles are fun, but the Powder and Blush/Bronzer brushes feel a bit bulky. Similar to Real Technique brushes that are sold individually, these too can stand on their own. That’s not an entirely necessary feature and I typically prefer a sleek and simple brush design.
The Mark Full Service 5 piece Pro Brush Set was clearly designed with makeup beginners in mind, so I’m not quite sure why the word Pro is in the title. Nonetheless, the brushes in the kit are nice and very easy to use.
