Review: GurlyGirl by Iris Jerry 5 Piece Eye Brush Set

Today I want to share with you an adorable set of eye brushes I found on Instagram! If you know me, you know that I can't pass up or refuse anything that's pretty in pink! Big shout out to Miss Iris Jerry, the creator of these cute brushes! Follow her Instagram account @gurlyiris17.

In the GurlyGirl five piece brush set, you get the following brushes:

  • Highlight Brush
  • Tapered Blending Brush
  • Blending Brush
  • Eye Shader Brush
  • Pencil Brush
According to the bio of Iris's Instagram, GurlyGirl brushes are made from goat/synthetic hairs all handmade by Miss Iris herself. All five brushes are very soft, dense, picks up pigments well. I've had these brushes for a couple of weeks now, they've all already have gone through 3 washes, and no shedding! After the first wash, one or two hairs came out but since then, I have not had any more shedding happened to these cuties.

I picked out the Blending and Tapered Blending brushes to compare to my MAC 217 Blending brush and my MAC 222 Tapered Blending brush. Below are the comparisons:

GurlyGirl Blending Brush compared to MAC 217 Blending Brush
GurlyGirl Tapered Blending Brush compared to MAC 222 Blending Brush
Comparing the GurlyGirl blending brushes to my MAC blending brushes, the brush hairs feel the same in terms of texture, density, and application. I am going to dub these GurlyGirl blending brushes to be awesome dupes for MAC! 

Below are up close pictures of the Highlight, Pencil, and Shader brushes (please click on the images to enlarge, I wanted them to all be next each other so I had to keep the images a bit smaller):


The brushes are so soft, the handles are strong and sturdy, overall the quality is excellent! I find these brushes to be well worth my money spent, and even more!

Miss Iris Jerry sells the brushes as a set and the price varies because she'll have specials on them! If you are interested in purchasing a set, I recommend you to follow her on Instagram, @gurlyiris17. Let her know that yo girl @itzlizzo sent you over! She is a darling and a hard worker that's for sure (seriously go and check out her Instagram!)! Once you place your order, you should get your brushes within a few days.
