Moda Prismatic Oval Brush Set Review

Good morning beauties!!

The weather here in Chicago was really beautiful for a while, and then this last week it turned cold again and now we're in the middle of a snowstorm! Yes, in the middle of March. 😏 I decided to stay in the house until I have to go to work tonight, so I thought I might as well write a review of the new Moda oval brush set I got a while back. I've been meaning to do it but have been so busy between my kids, their after school activities, work, etc. that I just haven't had the time to sit down and write it. Seeing as you couldn't pay me enough to go outside in this crap right now though, I finally have time to write my review. So let's get into it! 😉



The Moda brushes are a perfect dupe for the more expensive Artis oval brushes. I've used both and honestly there is no difference between the two, other than a huge price gap. I don't have the extra $200 to spend on a brush set, and I'm not about to sell a kidney to be able to do so. 💁😂 I wasn't expecting the Moda brushes to be an exact dupe, but I was pleasantly surprised. I definitely suggest buying the Moda brushes over the Artis brushes, because they are just as good. You get the same quality and end up saving a ton of money! I purchased my Moda Prismatic Oval Brush Set from Walmart for about $16. I had been on the hunt for these for quite a while, but couldn't find them anywhere but online. Every Walmart within a 50 mile radius was sold out of them (Believe me, I checked!). Finally one day I was in Walmart looking for something else, and came across the last set tucked away behind a face cream display. (I'm sure someone hid it on purpose to come back and buy it later....sorry! Finders keepers! LOL.) They come in a 4-pack of brushes with a beautiful holographic finish. I honestly didn't even want to take them out of the packaging because they are so gorgeous. They have super soft synthetic bristles. I was really surprised how dense they were, but so soft at the same time.

As I mentioned, the set includes 4 brushes. The largest one is a 3 inch oval brush. I use that to buff in and blend my liquid or cream foundations. I've been loving using it with the new L'Oreal Infallible Total Cover foundation. 👌 The next brush in the set is a 2 inch oval brush. I use it mostly for blending in blush/bronzer. The 1 inch oval brush works flawlessly for contouring/highlighting. It gives such a nice, precise contour. I am obsessed with this brush and WAY more impressed with it than any other contouring brush I've ever used. The smallest brush in the pack is tiny with bristles that make a circle. I use this brush to cover any imperfections I have. It's very small so you can really get in and cover anything you need, especially in harder to reach places that a bigger brush wouldn't be able to get at. The brush necks are also somewhat flexible which is really nice, because it makes them much easier to maneuver around your face.

Overall I'm extremely impressed with this brush set. Not only is it beautiful to look at, it's also amazing quality, and definitely worth the hype. They are very affordable and also 100% vegan for those of you that are looking for that!

Have you tried the Moda Prismatic Oval brushes? What do you think about them? How do you think they compare to the Artis brushes? Let me know below in the comments. Stay warm, beauties! 💖

  1. Beautiful brushes and the price is incredible!

    (about the weather - last week we had something that looked like an early Summer, not Spring, but Summer. Now we have spring and we will have the so expected rain soon)

    1. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment! Thankfully it's warming up (a little bit, very slowly). I'm hoping that was the last of the snow, but with the crazy weather here you never know for sure.

    1. Hey Launna!

      Hope you're staying warm! <3 I'm pretty sure they sell them online also if you can't find them at your Walmart. I was too excited and didn't want to wait for them in the mail so I decided not to order online and go on a hunt for them at every Walmart location near me. haha. They're definitely affordable and SO amazing. I can't say enough good things about them. :)
