Sonia G. has done it again, with her new Sky Face Set.  We are treated to five new face brushes, with blue handles, a new and exciting departure from the brand’s signature red handles.  And the shapes are all new.  In honor of the new blue handles, and my wash day, I dug in with our Breezy Tee blue hooded T-shirt Hair Towel Wrap!

If you don’t know, Sonia G. is a blogger, and known makeup brush afficianado.  In fact, it is said she own thousands of brushes.  If was through her love of brushes that she began to create her own, sold exclusively at Beautylish.  Her handmade makeup brushes, that are made in Kumano, Japan, are without a doubt my favorite makeup brushes.  They are incredibly efficient and soft.  Once you go Sonia G. brushes, it’s hard to look anywhere else.

This Sky Set was inspired by her love of the sky and stars.  The handles actually have sparkle, in light, reminding you of the stars.  They’re visually stunning and versatile.  This set was made for makeup novice or pro.  No matter where your makeup application level is, these fude brushes will make nice companions.

Below you will see the Sky Set and the Sonia G. Pro Face Set compared in pictures.  I’ve compared the brushes I use for the same areas of the face.  You will also see the Sky Set brushes washed and unwashed.  Sonia says they are at full bloom once they are washed.

Soft Cheek—This brush can be used for blush, setting powder, bronzer, or wherever you find it useful.  I loved using it to set my under eyes and t-zone with powder.  It’d incredibly soft and effective.

Master Face—This stunning brush is great for buffing and blending.  It can also be used for powder foundations, to bronze or even blush, depending on how you like to apply those.  I use it for applying bronzer/contour.   I also plan on playing more with all brushes and using them in different ways.  This is a versatile collection.

Mini Cheek—This little brush is coming to be my favorite kind of brush.  I can do so many things with them.  It’s perfect when you need a very specific application.  For me, I love it for contouring the nose area, or adding a pop or highlight to the very top of my cheek bone.

Classic Cheek—I knew this one would be used for blush and highlight, and it performed brilliantly for both things.  I chose a blush that is not the easiest to achieve color payoff, and the Classic Cheek brush handled it like a champ!! It was easy and gave seamless application.  It’s also perfect for cream highlights.  It glides beautifully across the cheeks, and again, leave a seamless application.  I’ll get lots of use out of this brush.

Worker Fan—Now, fan brushes tend to split opinion.  People love fan brushes, or don’t really care for them.  I happen to really enjoy fan brushes, especially my Sonia G. ones.  This Worker Fan brush is the largest one I own, and I was a little wary of just how I could use it.  It felt too big for cheek work.  It can be used to bronze and sculpt as well, but I couldn’t wrap my head around how I’d use it for that either.  Lo and behold, I became an instant believer.  It worked beautifully for blush.  I used semi-circular motions to apply blush and because the brush covers a larger surface area, I was able to apply and blend out my brush quickly.  I also used it to apply a loose highlighter powder.  It picked up a nice amount, but when I went a little over, and needed to pull it back, it was extremely convenient to be able to flip the fan on the other side, and diffuse the highlight.  LOVED the performance of this brush and it was probably the biggest surprise.

Overall, it’s another stellar brush set from Sonia G., with new and interesting shapes that make for very versatile brushes.  This is a luxury, handmade, natural bristle brush set, so you want to get as much use out of them as possible, and I think you will.
