Petunia Professional 12 Set Makeup Brush Kit Review

Petunia Professional 12 Set Makeup Brush Kit Review 

Retail 47.77

I am a HUGE makeup junkie and jumped at the change to review the Petunia professional 12 set makeup brush kit.  I love my Sigma and Makeup Geek brushes that I use everyday and I was excited to see how these compare.  When I first started out investing in brushes, I watched several YouTube video reviews.  I kept hearing over and over how important it was to have quality brushes and what a difference they make with application.  I can attest that using quality brushes is as important as quality makeup or skincare.  These Petunia brushes are made with quality goat/synthetic hair and are extremely soft on the face.  Before I get into my review, lets look at what comes in the makeup kit.

These brushes are for the face. They can be used for foundation, concealer, highlighter, blush, bronzer  and loose powder.  The fan brush is a little "wimpy" and does not hold up well with is almost too soft.  The other three brushes work great and I have been using them daily.  

All four of these brushes can be used for eyeshadow, blending, eyeliner and creating a cut crease.  I have been very happy with the performance of these brushes and use the eyeshadow and blending brush daily.

The four of these brushes can be used for eyebrows, lipstick and creating definition for a "smokey eye".  The only one I like and have been using is the small pencil brush in the upper left corner.  The rest of these brushes I can live without and have no real use for.

The set comes with brush guards for keeping your brushes safe during travel or storage.

This kit comes with instructions and shows how to use each brush.  I think this is great and can be useful for a beginner.

Kit comes with 12 brushes
Kit comes with brush guards
Kit comes with travel case
Kit comes with instructions
Brushes can be used for several products/techniques

Travel case is cheaply made
Only comes with 6 guards
Some of the brushes I would not use
Set does not come with a kabuki brush

Final Thoughts
I think this is a good makeup brush set for a beginner or someone who is looking to not spend a ton of money on brushes.  I will get some use out of 8 of the brushes, but not the rest.  The brushes are not as dense as I would like them to be and I feel they are missing some key brushes from this set.  This kit does not have a kabuki brush or a tapered kabuki brush.  The brush they recommend for foundation is not dense enough to apply liquid foundation.  I also feel that the fan brush is not strong tends to fold when applying blush or highlighter to my cheeks.  I do like the tapered blush brush and the tapered flat brush.  Both of these brushes I use and really like how they feel on my face.  I have not had any issues with any of the brushes shedding.  Overall, I think this kit would be five stars if they got rid of the nonessential brushes and incorporated a couple of kabuki brushes.  I would also love to see this kit do away with the plastic travel case and offer a round storage bin that could also be used to display the brushes on the counter.

I received this product in exchange for my honest review.


  1. I have this product too! I do love the brush guards but wish they offered smaller ones, they really don't fit on the eye brushes just the larger face brushes. I agree with you, the bag is not of the best quality but the brushes are decent.
