Hello, people of the internet!

Živa sam i jedva sam dočekala ovaj zimski raspust. Nadam se da ću se sada malo više aktivirati na blogu - da se ne ureknem. Moram priznati da mi nedostaje pisanje na blogu, dosta je "blebetanja" užiovo o šminci, treba nešto i napisati 😀 Danas ipak nije riječ striktno o šminci već o alatu, a svi znamo da bez dobrog alata nema ni dobre šminke, je l' tako?

I am alive and couldn't be happier about this winter break. I hope I'll be more active on blog in the next few days - not to jinx it. I must admit I miss writing for blog, it was enough of "babbling" about makeup in real life and was about time for something to be written. 😀 Today's post is not strictly about makeup, but rather about tools - and we all know there is no good makeup without good tools, right?

Danas je došao red na jedan set čektica koji sam osovojila na nagradnoj igri - da, još i sama ne vjerujem da sam nešto osvojila na nagradnoj igri. Do sada nisam imala probala BH Cosmetics četkice, tako da sam bila jako uzbuđena da isprobam ovaj set. On dolazi pod nazivom Crystal Quartz i možete ga pronaći na njihovoj stranici za 26$ ili na Beauty Bayu za 35,25€.

Today's review is of a makeup brush set I won in a giveaway - yes, I still can't believe I won something in a giveaway. I haven't tried BH Cosmetics brushes up to this point, so I was really excited to try this set out. It comes under the name Crystal Quartz and you can find it on their official website for 26$ or on Beauty Bay for 35,25€.

Četkice dolaze u holografskom neseseru koji je dodatno upakiran u kartonsku kutiju na kojoj se nalaze sve informacije vezane za četkice. Sam neseser je, osim što predivno i zanimljivo izgleda, je jako praktičan, te dovoljno velik da u njega stane makeup za putovanje. Također, jako je čvrst pa možete biti bez straha da će vam se makeup proizvodi polomiti. A sama boja, tj spektar boja, me podsjeća na jednoroge 😀.

The brushes come in a holographic vanity case, which was additionally packed into a cardboard box which contains all the information about the brushes. The case itself, besides being beautiful and interesting, is very practical and big enough to put makeup for travel in it. Also, it is quite firm so you can be sure your makeup won't break. The color itself, ie the color spectrum, reminds me of unicorns 😀

U setu dolazi 12 četkica od kojih su 4 za lice i 8 za oči. Svaka na sebi ima broj uz koju dolazi opis na prethodno spomenutoj kartonskoj kutiji. Napravljene su prilično čvrsto, sa drvenom drškom i dobro učvrščenim metalnim dijelom. Metalni dio je tamno roz, otud quartz u imenu. Ja ću prvo krenuti sa opisom četki za lice.

The set contains 12 brushes, including 4 face and 8 eye brushes. Each one has a number which is paired with the description on a previously mentioned box. They are quite well made, with a wooden handle and well-secured metal part. The metal is dark pink, which explains quartz in the name. I am going to start with the description of face brushes. 

1. Deluxe powder brush - velika, oblo rezana. Vlakna nisu previše gusto nabijena, te lijepo nanose kamenu puder, što joj je i prvotna namjena.
2. Large rounded bronzing brush - još jedna velika, oblo rezana četka, malo plosnatija i malo kraćih vlakana od 1. Također nije pregusto nabijena te je dobra za nanošenje bronzera ili rumenila.
3. Rounded buffing brush - uža, oblo rezana četka. Vlakna su malo gušće nabijena nego kod prethodne dvije, no voljela bih da su ipak još malo gušća. Dobra je za nanošenje tekućeg pudera.
4. Flat contour brush - ravno rezana, plosnatija i gusto nabijenih vlakana. Za konturiranje dušu dala. Odlično "legne" ispod jagodičnih kostiju i nju najčešće koristim od svih. Definitivno do sada najdraža četkica za konturiranje.


1. Deluxe powder brush - big, round cut brush. The fibers are packed too densely, and it applies the powder well, which is its primary purpose
2. Large rounded bronzing brush - another big, rounded brush, a bit more flat and with shorter fibers than no.1. Also it is not packed too densely and is very good for bronzer and blusher application.
3. Rounded buffing brush - a bit more narrow, rounded brush.The fibers are more densely packed than with previous two, but I would like them to be even denser. It is good for foundation application.
4. Flat contour brush - flat cut, flatter and densely packed brush. Perfect for contouring. It "sits" nicely under the cheekbones and I use it the most out of all. It's definitely
been my favorite contour brush so far.

5.  Large blending brush - oblo rezana četkica dugih vlakana, jako mekana te odlična za blendanje većih površina, bilo da želite samo lagani sloj sjenila na kapku ili dobro izblendati sjenilo prema obrvi
6. Tapered blending brush - oblikom poput br.5, ali manja i uža, odlična za preciznije blendanje u pregibu
7. Domed blending brush - manja od 5, a veća od 6, gušće nabijenih vlakana, dobra za intenzivniji nanos sjenila u kapak
8. Buffing blender brush - dužina vlakana je kao kod 7, no plosnatija je od nje. Može se koristiti u istu svrhu.
9. Eye shader brush - "klasična" plosnata četkica za nanošenje sjenila preko cijelog kapka, no može se koristiti i u pregibu i za blendanje sjenila na donjem kapku.
10. Pencil brush - gusto nabijena četkica za preciznije nanošenje sjenila, bilo da želite istaknuti "cut crease", nanijeti sjenilo uz liniju trepavica ili unutarnji kut oka, za što ju ja najčešće i koristim.
11. Flat concealer brush - čvrsta, ravno rezana četkica. Najmanje sam ju koristila od svih. Nije baš praktična za nanošenje korektora, no dobro posluži za nanošenje sjenila na donji kapak.
12. Angled brow brush - ni predebela, ni pretanka, nije dovoljno precizna za liner, ali je dovoljno precizna za obrve. Najbolje mi surađuje sa praškastim proizvocima.

5.  Large blending brush - round cut brush with long fibers, very soft and perfect for blending of larger areas, whether you just want a light layer of eyeshadow over the entire eyelid or to blend the eyeshadow well near the eyebrows.
6. Tapered blending brush - similar in shape to no.5, but smaller and thinner, perfect for more precise blending in the crease.
7. Domed blending brush - smaller than no.5, bigger than no.6 with densely packed fibers, good for intense eyeshadow application to the crease
8. Buffing blender brush - the length of fibers is as of no.7, but it's flatter. It can be used for the same purpose.
9. Eye shader brush - "classic" flat brush for applying the eyeshadow to the entire eyelid, but can also be used in the crease or for blending on the lower eyelid
10. Pencil brush - densely packed brush for a precise application, whether you want to emphasize the cut crease, apply an eyeshadow along the lash line or in the inner eye corner, for which I use it the most.
11. Flat concealer brush - stiff, flat cut brush. I've used it the lease. It is not really practical for concealer application, but works well for the lower lash line.
12. Angled brow brush - not too thick, not too thin, not too precise for liner, but precise enough for eyebrows. In my case it works best with the powder products.

Ovaj set je po mom mišljenju jako dobar za svoju cijenu. Ne mogu ga usporediti sa npr Zoevom ili Sigmom, jer u svojoj kolekciji nemam skupljih četkica, ali mislim da je jako kvalitetan s obzirom na cijenu. Također - predivno izgleda na makeup stolu. 😀 Jako mi je drago da je došao u moj posjed, posebno zato jer je bila nagradna igra u pitanju 😀. Otkako sam ga dobila jako često ga koristim, a četkice nisu gubile ni vlakna ni oblik pri pranju. Definitivno imate moje tople preporuke za ovaj set.

In my opinion, this set is quite good for its price. I can't compare it to Zoeva or Sigma, because I don't have more expensive brushes, but I think this set has a great quality-for-price ratio. Also - it looks lovely on the makeup desk. 😀 I am really glad it got into my possession, especially because it was via giveaway. 😀 I've been using it quite often since I got it, and the brushes did not lose their shape or fibers during washing. You definitely have my warm recommendation for this set.
