Eye Brush
This small shader is essential for detailing work. It fits well in the inner eye/tear duct area. It can even be used to smudge color into the lash line for a more diffused look.

Angled Detail - EB 23

Angled Detail - EB 23
Eye Brush
This brush was specifically crafted with smaller, thinner bristles, and a deep diagonal cut, making it perfect for creating the perfect winged eyeliner.

Tip: Due to its slimness, this brush is perfect to sketch out a cut crease.

Capped Lip Brush - LB 23

Capped Lip Brush - LB 25
Lip Brush
This brush cap has a dual purpose. When not in use, the cap keeps your brush sanitary. When using it, snap the cap onto the back of the brush to create a full-sized brush that makes application easier and more precise.

Tip: Think you’re out of your favorite lip stick? Don’t throw it away. Use the lip brush to scoop out extra product inside the bottom of the tube.

Creating the Brushes
As a beauty blogger, product junkie and makeup artist, I’ve used countless products over the years.  I’m pretty picky when it comes to my brushes and I wanted to help create a line for my fellow makeup enthusiasts and artists.  I love being prepared with all of the necessary tools and combining the Vortex Set with the original Sedona Lace brush set will give you the ultimate brush collection.  With the Vortex Set, I wanted to create a more pro line that takes makeup application and technique to the next level.  All of the brushes are multi-purpose and versatile.  I never go to a gig without my brush belt and this line also includes one to help store the brushes and keep them within easy reach.  After months of testing and revisions, I’m happy to partner with Sedona Lace and present the new Vortex Collection.

Great brushes!

By Emily from MI on 6/23/2015 11:45:36 PM

I've had these brushes for over a year now, and I still love them very much! I no longer have the flat top brush, but that's my own fault (it was my favorite one by far). They have held up very well, with minimal shedding. Would purchase again, although the price on these jumped quite a bit from when I bought them.

Received these brushes with an order of the belt

By Suzana from Valdosta on 4/15/2014 10:43:13 PM

A few weeks ago I placed an order of the brush belt. To my surprise Sedona Lace sent me these brushes with my order. The only other set I own from them is the Midnight 12 piece set and I'm in love with that set :) I didn't want to write a review until trying these out for a couple of weeks first and well here is my thoughts on the set. I completely love them! yes, they were sent to me but words cannot express how happy I am with the brushes. I really love all the eye brushes. My top 3 favorites of the set is definitely the EB09 Universal blender, EB13 Synthethic Blender, and the EB19 Bent Liner. I really love those. They are great for blending my eyeshadow seamlessly. The rest of the eye brushes are also great, those are just my favs. The face brushes are also great. Although, when I first opened them the fan brush had a strong smell.. but after washing it, it went away. All the brushes perform very well. I tried the foundation brush (FB07) damped while applying my foundation and the finish was a very natural flawless look. I really love it, and it definitely has won a place in my heart :) The dome contour (FB05) is great for contouring.. nothing more I can say. Love it! The Jumbo fan (FB01) is awesome! I've seen beauty gurus use it for applying their highlight but I love using it to set my foundation. It's great for dusting powder lightly on the face without making you look cakey. I love it! The tulip contour (FB03) is nice for contouring as well. I've used it for setting my T-zone. I think it's perfect for that area. Even though, they suggest you use the brushes a certain way, I say use them the way you feel it's best for you..or whatever makes you comfortable. All in all, I definitely recommend these! I only had a few shading incidents and that was from the Fan brush and the pointed crease brush. Great set and it's definitely a must have in any MUA kit or just the average girl who loves makeup and brushes! :) Thank you Sedona Lace for the lovely brushes!

pro or not

By cici from ca on 11/16/2013 11:19:17 AM

I have had these vortex brushes since june of 2013 (5 months) and i absolutely love them; they are my favorite. I am not a professional makeup artist and use these as part of my daily makeup routine. I use almost all of the brushes & they're really well made with little to no fall out. I own several other brush brands: sigma, sephora, mac, etc) and these are my go to brushes. I just ordered another brush set from sedona lace today as I trust the quality of their brushes....and the price is very affordable. Bonus...it comes with a brush holder; easy travel & easy storage!

These deserve 10 stars!

By Lisa from Indiana on 6/18/2013 9:07:58 AM

I am so excited to have found this company! I have drawers full of brushes that have disappointed me from many high end brands and these blow them away. They are truly for the self proclaimed make-up junkie! They are superior quality at a great price. This set contains every brush you need for every type of foundation, bronzer, blush, highlight and contour and every eye look imaginable. Eye brushes are what I have been most disappointed with from other companies. Many are not dense enough or not shaped in a way to get a really precise application. The eye brushes alone are more than worth the price of the set. The customer service of this company is excellent - my order shipped the same day I ordered and I received two days later (and free I might add). I forgot to enter a promo code and was refunded the difference. I am looking forward to trying new products.

I just recently received these brushes and I am already obsessed. I've been using MAC brushes for years and didn't think I would ever switch to anything else until now. I can't even begin to explain how amazing this set is because everything blends in so perfectly. These are by far the best brushes I've ever used and I would highly recommend this set to anyone!

These are the most amazing brushes I have ever used. I have used Mac on myself and my clients for years..But I think by far these are the best! The application is wonderful.. there is not one brush I don't like..Now I'm buying another set for my clients. I also use them everyday on myself on my youtube channel..Ren did a great job creating them with Sedona lace , and Sedonalace is now my fav brush company..I have used other high end brands and I prefer these..

By Tabia from Los Angeles, CA on 11/26/2012 12:08:23 AM

I absolutely love this brush set. The flat top buffer applies cream and liquid foundations like a dream without soaking up a lot of product if any at all. The detailed blender brush really gets in your crease with some much precision. I really like how there are 3 blender brushes in this kit. I'm crazy in love with the double ended spoolie. I don't reach for any other brush now when doing my brows. The belt comes in handy so much with me being a mua. I love wearing it when doing makeup on clients. I usually wear it across my chest like a messenger bag. This set it just AMAZBALLZ!!! Makeup by RenRen did a great job on these.

Great quality, awesome price

By Christel from Sydney, Australia on 11/24/2012 7:36:21 AM

I literally use every single one of these brushes all the time. The fan brush is absolutely amazing for highlighting and the contour brush is perfect for getting into the hollows of your cheeks with bronzer. The dome contour is phenomenal at applying blush, and u can control how much you want to add- it's very good at blending colour out. The flat top buffer is decent, but I found that when you dampen it (suggested in the cute little info pamphlet you get) it really does help to buff foundation out better. The universal blender is literally the best eyeshadow blender I have ever used- in the crease, applying colour to the lid; it's amazing. I just ordered another one. I actually use the synthetic concealer brush to conceal the stray hairs of my brows and get the perfect shape before I fill them in- another amazing brush for that purpose. All the other brushes are amazing as well, and Sedona Lace packages them so carefully and so well. BUY THESE BRUSHES!!!

Great Kit

By Aly from on 5/26/2012 4:45:47 PM

The eye brushes in this kit are definitely my most favorite. You can achieve any eye look with these eye brushes. But the bristles of the universal blender feels a little rough after having it a while. Ive had mine for approximately 7 months now. I use the synthetic blender for undereye concealer and it's very difficult to clean. But these are minor issues to me, it still achieves good application. I personally don't use the eyeliner brushes because I prefer liquid but they do apply excellently. As for the face brushes the dome contour brush has to be my absolute favorite. I use it on a daily basis and prefer this brush over any brush for contouring. But this is the only brush in the set that sheds unfortunately. As for the Tulip contour brush, this looses it's shape after it has been washed, even if you use the brush guard. But other than that, it still applies powder products well. It just looses its shape. The brow spoolie duo is awesome. And lastly the flat top buffer brush and the fan brush are also good quality but I have other brushes such as Sigma that similar to those if not better. So it's pretty standard. Overall I do love this kit but nothing is perfect and I expected that. But I would recommend this to others. If not the whole kit definitely the universal blender, synthetic blender, pointed crease brush, and the small dome contour brush.

Great Set!

By Yadira from Michigan, USA on 9/20/2011 6:21:02 PM

En mi opinion este set es muy bueno para comenzar tu coleccion. Las brochas o pinceles que RenRen escogio para este set se pueden utilizar para diferentes aplicaciones. Las serdas son bien suaves y muy bien construidas, hasta el momento no sueltan pelo. La correa para las brochas si tu maquillas profesionalmente deberias considerar comprarlas con la correa, pero si solo deseas utilizarlas de manera personal en mi opinion no necesitas la correa.

By Stella Sanders from Austin, Texas on 8/25/2011 11:24:28 PM

I bought these brushes to use at my hair studio because I also do makeup with up do's for weddings, homecoming, etc. These makeup brushes make completing my look so easy. I am very pleased with the quality and quickly processing my order. My brushes were shipped quickly and arrived safely, which is a plus.
