With their attractive design and knowing about that cruelty-free approach to manufacturing, they look like the brushes that will inspire you to create some special and bright look.

Lime Crime Makeup Brushes: Aquarium set review

The first thing you notice right away when you pick any of those aquarium brushes is that aquarium handle with water and lots of shaped glitter inside. So, we definitely wanted to play with the kit. The Aquarium brush kit contains 7 brushes for the major applications and a glitter clutch with a snap. Here is the list of brushes you are getting in the kit:

  • Powder brush;
  • Fan brush (for highlighter application);
  • Blush brush;
  • Lip brush;
  • Eye shadow blending brush;
  • Pencil brush;
  • Angled brush (for application of brow products);
  • A bonus – transparent glitter pouch.

Aquarium Set Brushes: Overview & Performance

After testing this brush set we can say, that the overall impression is good, yet not excellent. They do their job, yet they are not as precise as the other similar cruelty-free brushes. They are softer, than we thought they were going to be, so they do not pick up the right amount product. Though, they are not too soft and blend powder products, such as eye shadows and sculpting powder well. We like the way the fan brush performed. Yet, with the Lime Crime the foundation brush, we found it difficult to blend foundation to create that even finish. So if you are looking for a brush set to work with every day, you should look for the different solution. Yet, if you want a cute set that you will use from time to time, this Lime Crime kit is the way to go.

I’m visiting my folks in Texas. I currently live in China. I bought these brushes 2 months ago in China~ for $5 US dollars, The only difference is that there’s not the ‘lime crime’ logo on the bag. Reselling at such a high price is gross. Maybe I could understand if the company designed the brushes, but they didn’t.

I love my aquarium set, as it is so soft and blends ee shadows evenly. Plus, makeup routine becomes a game, as I totally love those sparkles.
