Royal and Langickel make a lot of different types of brushes. One that’s impressive and super affordable is Moda Metallics.
Advicesisters Beauty and Style had the opportunity to check out Moda Metallics, an super affordable collection of eye-centric brushes that glitter with decorated golden handles.
The collection has more than a dozen different makeup brushes so we checked out a bunch of them and here’s the scoop:
Each of the shiny, richly decorated, lightweight, golden aluminum handles have differently shaped cruelty-free, 100% vegan brush heads. And each does something different.
The indentations in the decorated handles help you grip the brushes better.
The faux bristles pick up color nicely and distribute it smoothly. They’re nicely shaped, a crucial part of helping you to apply makeup easily.
POINTED LINER $5.49 The round tapering of this brush lets you control the thickness of the line. If you only wear thin liner or thick liner, choose between the pointed liner and the fine liner for liquid and gel products.
ANGLE LINER $4.99 Soft angle brush with chisel edge for precision at the lash line with a small flat tip angled to let you make a precise good for powder as well as gel or liquid liner.
SMOKY EYE $6.99 For precision blending in the eye crease, the domed brush comes to a point and is a multi-tasker also useful for shading and the crease of the eye.
CREASE $6.49 It’s a large brush head compared to the others. We felt it was too generously sized to be an effective crease brush.
SUPER CREASE $7.49 To contour and deepen your crease but we felt this one was too large for crease unless you want a lot of definition at the crease line. We used ours for soft shading as it isn’t quite round nor completely flat.
Which Brushes Are Essentials?
Our test included 9 brushes but the collection has even more than this. So we wondered: does one really need all of these brushes?
We consulted with beauty expert Lianne Farbes who really knows her way around makeup and makeup tools.
She said: “You don’t really need all of these brushes unless you are a makeup artist. You probably can get away with just a few. I actually like both synthetic and vegan bristles because they are less expensive, last longer and are easier to clean.”
Here are Lianne’s must-haves:
Angle liner: (great for precision application of gel liner or powder);
