Today’s review is going to be on the Sedona Lace Vortex Brush Set. I get good quality makeup brushes whenever I get the chance. Being a makeup artist, a blogger and a makeup junkie I can hardly resist from buying good products one such buy is this. So how did the Sedona Lace Vortex Brush Set fare out for me?
What The Company Claims?
The Sedona Lace Vortex Collection exclusively designed by Renelyn Monteloyola of Makeup by Ren Ren. This pro line of brushes takes makeup application and technique to the next level. All of the brushes are multi-purpose and versatile and includes a brush belt to help store the brushes and keep them within easy reach. The pink and black colors on the bristles is a registered trademark of Sedona Lace.

How Did The Sedona Lace Vortex Brush Set Work For Me?
The Sedona Lace Vortex Brush Set comes in a soft faux matte leather packaging with sturdy zippers and has the Sedona Lace logo imprinted on it. Unlike my Coastal Scents 22 Piece Brush Set faux leather packaging, the Sedona Lace Vortex packaging also doubles up as a brush belt which is great for professional makeup artists like me as I can just open it, attach it as a brush belt without the need of a brush holder.
The Sedona Lace Vortex Brushes are very sturdy and have soft synthetic brushes. The brush set I have has their trademark black pink bristles which are patented only for Sedona Lace. There are 13 brushes in this set and all of them are very sturdy. Comparing it to my Real Techniques Brush Sets, the bristles so much more softer and for the price, the quality is very high.
