I don’t even remember when I heard about Claudio Riaz brushes for the first time, I just remember that I checked the price and then I totally abandoned the idea of being willing and able to try them one day. However, I can only resist for a certain period of time, then I miserably fall into temptation
I was in the hunt for big eyeshadow brushes and pointy blush brushes, when I saw Wayne’s video about these brushes and also Deb’s, I noticed that shapewise they were exactly what I was looking for. There aren’t many reviews or posts about the Claudio Riaz brush range, on his website I can read “Claudio’s brushes were a huge success with women around the world” but I don’t see many people raving about them, maybe it’s because you have to be a bit crazy to splurge on something you don’t even know you are going to love.
Well, if I don’t love them, at least I can write about them, maybe give you some information that can help you decide if whether or not they would be of interest to you. Please keep in mind that I am not a make up artist, just a picky client with high expectations and at this price, I can tell you they are higher than ever.
There is NO way I will buy a full brush set again or any brush that I am not sure I will be interested in using. The brushes I selected are those that I am sure I want to use. Here they are :
I have contacted the Claudio Riaz customer support via their own website. They ship internationally but you have to contact them for a quote. I have received a reply from them, to Switzerland it would cost : USD 99.69
Sorry Claudio, I could not even reply to the mail because I froze.
I found out that allcosmeticswholesale had some of the Claudio Riaz brush range and that they were authentic. They claim that if their price is the same as the retail one, the items entirely match the original ones in quality. It was the case for the brushes I ordered. Allcosmeticswholesale shipping was fast, costs around USD 18. They shipped on the 3rd of July and I already received them on the 10th. Excellent order experience, they wrapped the brushes very carefully and they sent me a little present.
