Oh happy day!...Addiction by Ayako recently launched their 15 piece makeup brush collection! These 15 brushes are divided into four categories: Base Makeup Brushes, Powder Brushes. Eyeshadow Brushes, and Eyebrow & Lip brushes.
Addiction By Ayako is offering this cute brush roll when you purchase 15 brushes.
The brush roll isn't leather, but that's not an issue for me, I'm more concerned with how easy it cleans. Also, I found The Addiction branding in the corner to be a cute touch.
This brush roll holds up to 20 brushes!
The girls at the counter also gave me a few of these individual brush sleeves. The material is quite nice, and I love that the addiction lettering is in a pretty ballet pink color.

Group photo! I love the color and gradient finish of the handles!! The handles are light weight, easy to hold, and have a nice grip.
The hairs on these brushes are SOOOO soft- not a single scratchy one in the collection.
Overall, I'm really impressed with the quality of the Addiction brushes. At first, I thought there were a few brushes that I could have done without, but after playing with them all, I'm really glad I purchased the entire set. Some of my standout favorites are: the Base Makeup Brushes, the Powder Brushes, the Eyeshadow Brush P, the Eyeshadow Brush C, the Eyeshadow Brush S and finally, the Lip Brush Retractable. The Lip Brush Retractable is phenomenal!! Love it's pointy tip. I also love the fact that, in order to retract the lip brush, the cap must be inserted from the bottom end of the brush (similar to some of my portable Hakuhodo lip brushes...a no brainier there since I believe these brushes were made by Hakuhodo ). I will definitely be doubling (even tripling) up on some of the addiction brushes.
What's your favorite type of brush?
Looking gorgeous one lipstick at a time.
