Smashbox Beyond Beauty Brush Set
I stopped by Nordstrom Rack the other day on a hunt for jeans because I found a rip in the knee of my jeans. Although I didn't end up liking any of the Se7ens that I saw, I did walk away with this Smashbox brush set.
I don't particularly follow cruelty free brands (not saying that I would go out of my way to buy products that test on animals!), but I do try. I've always known Smashbox to be cruelty free with their products, and while I don't own any of their products besides their primer, I wanted to give their brushes a try.
This whole set ended up costing $40, although the retail is $84. In fact, it's still being sold on the Smashbox site. Given that it was Nordstrom Rack and half the packages had been opened, I took it as a opportunity to test out the brushes on my hand and omg they were so soft.

The bristles on the powder brush are so ridiculously soft that I can't stop running it across my arms....
