Ahh So Much Cuteness In The Ihana Pro Travel Makeup Brush Sets! (Plus A Giveaway!)


Ihana 5 Pc Travel Set Denim Series in  Anchors Ahoy

I have a weakness for travel makeup brushes. I don’t actually travel all that much but when I lay eyes on a set of small brushes, my immediate thought would be “oooh that’d be great for travelling!“. Most of the time, I forget that the next time I’ll be travelling is probably in a year’s time but hey, the heart wants what the heart wants, right?

I have a trusty set of makeup brushes by Royal & Langnickel that I use faithfully when I’m away from home. They’re a full set that ranges from the face, eyes to the lips and comes in a light case that I love. The thing is, I don’t really need to lug all of those brushes with me because when I’m travelling, the last thing I want to fiddle with is eye makeup. I like to keep it simple so more often than not, a couple of eye brushes would suffice.

So when Ihana asked if I’d like to check out their travel makeup brush set, I thought, why not? I don’t need that many makeup brushes with me when I’m away; just a couple of face brushes and 2 eye makeup brushes would be enough. Lo and behold, that’s what the Pro Travel Makeup Brushes were about. The one I have is the Anchors Ahoy! in the Denim series.

Ihana 5 Pc Travel Set Denim Series in  Anchors Ahoy

Here we have a face powder brush, an angled blush brush, an eyeshadow brush, a round dome brush and an angled eyeshadow brush in a handy and may I say, very cute, brush holder. The bristles are made of 100% deluxe goat hair and are very soft. I particularly like the eyeshadow brushes because they’re soft, have short handles (hate long handles because they’re such a pain to use when I have my face inches away from the mirror) and are easy to use.

There was minimum bristle fallout and no bleeding during washing. Plus when the brush case is dirty, you can easily chuck it into the washing machine (you’ll be surprised at how many people just wash the makeup brushes but not the case). Oh and did I mention that each makeup brush set comes with a complimentary luggage tag for your travels? Also, all Ihana products are exhaustively sourced and manufactured from ethical sources.

As May is my blog anniversary month (hitting 7 years this month, folks!), Ihana has kindly offered a similar travel makeup brush set worth AU$79.00 (including a complimentary luggage tag) for one lucky reader to win! I had a hard time choosing the case and in the end, decided on the very vibrant pink Apple Daydreams. Too cute, man. Too cute. 😛

    Hellooooo there ! ~

    1. I’m actually from Malaysia but recently moved to UK (still not used to the super bi-polar weather..one minute it’s super sunny then suddenly it’s pouring rain.. also: dilemma in jackets/sweaters/coats. I’m weird. I can’t differentiate between spring coats/jackets/etc from the ones from other seasons..I literally wear spring coats on winter – I did this. Don’t judge me D:-)

    2. My current favourite makeup brush would be, umm…let me see. There’s the Hakuhodo(J110&J5521) ones but I only like few of their brushes even though all of em’ are soft..Zoeva brushes are cheap and comparable (maybe even better?) than MAC, so my fav would be the Zoeva Brush collection. But then, the Wayne Goss ones are also good…UHHH brush dilemma. I’d just go with the Hakuhodo J110.

    I’m from Australia and a fairly new makeup convert, so your site is great for giving me lemmings for new products. So far my favourite brushes are the Real Techniques line, particularly the blush brush. So good.

    Ahhhhh those makeup cases and brushes are sooo kawaii (*´ω`*)
    1. Australia. Never travelled before sadly but that doesn’t stop me eyeing the travel brush sets everytime I go to priceline XD
    2. My favourite brush is a powder brush. I have ridiculously oil skin and I find only powder brushes can apply loose or pressed power to keep the oil at bay for majority of the day. So I hoard them, cos I’m lazy to wash my brushes often XP

    Australia! Ecotools retractable kabuki brush! It’s awesome. :)
