Westman Atelier 4-Piece Petite Brush Collection Review

Purchased (Affiliate Links)

Westman Atelier 4-Piece Petite Brush Collection, which launched for the holidays, has been on my radar since I first saw them. The regular price, which is $350.00, is more than I wanted to spend, and I almost purchased it during the last Sephora VIB Sale, but I didn't. Given my penchant for Westman Atelier brushes, and I have collected all of them (Reviewed HERE, and this post has links to all of the Westman Atelier brush reviews), I knew that I really wanted to get my hands on this set. While they are small versions of four of the most popular large brushes, they perform precisely the same way. I recently discovered that Nordstrom and goop are selling them for 40% off, and at $210.00 (a $140.00 savings!), I jumped and purchased the set. Nordstrom keeps selling out, and then a set or two will appear again, and therefore it is worth keeping an eye on the link that I provided. Sephora is currently selling it at the regular retail price.

According to Westman Atelier,

The only blending tools you’ll ever need, now in a limited edition mini set. Handmade in Japan, each brush features luxuriously soft, cruelty-free bristles that make application and blending easy – for an unbelievably refined finish on skin. Thoughtfully designed mini sizes make this set the perfect travel companion.

The Petite Brush Collection includes:

  • Liquid Blender Brush: Refines liquid formulas.
  • Blender Brush: Seamless blending for cream formulas.
  • Baby Blender Brush: Precision blending for cream formulas.
  • Eye Shadow II: Blends and refines eye shadow.

Each brush in the Petite Brush Collection comes with a small brush cover to protect the bristles while traveling, or while stowing away at home. The Petite Brush Collection's cylindrical box doubles as a great storage solution too! It’s made out of 100% paper and is recyclable.

Sourced from Japan: Sustainable Hardwood Birch. Sourced from a Forest Stewardship Council certified forest in Eastern Europe.

Cruelty-Free Nylon Fibers: Optimal density, softness, and function for ultra-smooth application.

These four essential brushes make achieving a seamlessly blended makeup look easy:

Petite Blender Brush (4" long): is the ideal companion for cream formulas like Super Loaded Tinted Highlight. 

Petite Baby Blender Brush (3 1/2" long): is perfect for applying cream formulas on smaller areas of the face. 

Petite Liquid Blender Brush’s (4" long): compact, rounded shape is perfect for a refined application of liquid formulas. 

The fluffy bristles of the Petite Eye Shadow II Brush (3 1/2" long): blend eye shadow seamlessly.

While I certainly didn't need to buy this set, Westman Atelier brushes are my go-to daily brushes, and since I clean them often, having these four brushes means that I can use one set while I am washing the other one. They are gorgeously soft cruelty-free bristles that are dense, effective and gentle on even the most sensitive skin. All of these brushes pick up and deposit product perfectly, and using them is a luxurious treat. 

If you love high quality cruelty-free brushes, these handmade brushes are a game-changer.

The cardboard box is very sturdy, and it offers a safe way to store the brushes at home, or while you travel.
Overall Assessment: Even on sale this is a splurge, but this was well worth every cent spent. They are ultra-luxe, incredibly effective and such a joy to use. A+

$210.00 on Sale (Regular price $350.00). Available from Nordstrom, goop and Sephora (Affiliate Links). Purchased. All views expressed are categorically my own.

  1. Quality brushes are my downfall too. I love the way they perform. I should get on their bandwagon since the brand is so amazing.

    1. Yes, you and I share this brush obsession, Marcia! Not only would you love the Westman Atelier brushes, but I think that you would really love their cream blush formula– plus they can be used on the lips as well! This set and the eye set are on sale at Nordstrom right now, and it would be a great time to cash in any Nordstrom Notes, if you have any right now!

  2. Ever since I saw the title of this review, I was hoping it would be a set I could afford. 40% off is an incredible sale, so I will give it some serious consideration. Plus they have the red handles that I love ❤️ I know how much you love Westman Atelier brushes, so this is a great opportunity to snag them for less!

    1. Hi Allison! The 40% Off price tag really makes this worth considering. The red handles are stunning, the quality is superb and these handmade brushes are made to last. I am such a huge fan of her brushes, and these boast the same ultra-luxe quality as the full-size versions. This was money very well spent for me, and they are good for daily use, not just travel. In fact, since I use my full-size WA brushes daily, and wash them frequently, it is great to use these while the others are being washed, and vice versa. If you decide to take the plunge, you will not regret it! <3

  3. I've been eyeing this set since it dropped. Those shapes are just perfect for on-the-go makeup and the sizes are ideal for travel!

    1. Hi Anastasia, I was too, and once they went on sale I couldn't resist. The shapes are perfect for on-the-go makeup, they are ideal for travel, and they are large enough to use at home on a daily basis. If you are interested, I urge you to grab a set while they are still on sale! The quality is precisely the same as their beautiful full-size brushes!
