Love for Brushes

I'm developing a love for brushes of all kinds.  I bought a few higher end brushes and they are amazing.  They are incredibly soft and my makeup glides on like a dream.  There are so many interesting shapes. I am really interested in creating a beautiful brush collection.  Show your brushes and share any cleaning and storage tips and let us know which ones are your favorites.

There's a great comparison video on YouTube by Trisha from A Glittery Life.

Looks like Sonia from Sweet Makeup Temptations has also done a comparison post on the old vs the new @MissPuff

Re: Love for Brushes

ust an FYI - I read this week that TF is changing all of their brushes to synthetics, so if there are any of the goat hair brushes anyone has their eyes on, they may want to pick it up before they disappear.

Re: Love for Brushes

Complete change of direction. How odd.

Re: Love for Brushes

I was surprised to see this change. I wondered why not just add to the collection rather than replace the entire lot. @Mochapj, do you think it's worth buying a TF brush or look to other Japanese brands for brushes as needed? (I've long had my eye on the TF cheek brush. As a brush newbie, I mostly own a combo of Wayne Goss and Bobbi Brown bu  do look into other Japanese brands from time to time.)  Your thoughts as a brush guru?

Re: Love for Brushes

@TraceyEB my best guess is they are going cruelty free - perhaps it is at the behest of the parent company, EL?

 

I have about half the TF brush line (cheek, cream foundation, bronzer, eye blending, concealer and shade/illuminate) and personally they aren't my favourite brushes, but I am not a huge fan of goat brushes.  I think when you find good brushes that suit your face shape, they are worth the investment, but between the material and the size, the TF brushes have never been ideal for me.

 

I personally think there are better brushes out there, but since Hakuhodo made these goat TF brushes, even when they are gone people will still be able to find close dupes for the shapes, if not the handles.

Re: Love for Brushes

Thanks so much for your insight, P! I've heard mixed reviews about TF brushes. This year, I want to learn more about the difference in materials and about Japanese brands (which can sometimes be overwhelming at first). Thanks again, @Mochapj!!

Re: Love for Brushes

I got this brush a couple of weeks ago and it's amazing!  It's so soft, big and poofy.  AND beautiful looking.  The white handle is so pretty.  

Re: Love for Brushes

I know the Sephora Hakuho-do brushes are synthetic but is there any reason I should be washing them differently than other synthetic brushes?  Thanks! 

Re: Love for Brushes

Just a little suggestion/tip to anyone that finds their natural hair brushes are starting to get a little dry and brittle, I find the Sephora brush conditioner helps a ton. My Sigma brushes were starting to shed/break and feel a little scratchy so I tried it out. They're all soft againSmiley Happy

 

It's been in the sale section for a while for $5, I guess it's being discontinued:/

Re: Love for Brushes

Thought you all might enjoy this. I was washing some eye brushes tonight.,,,

 

 

when I came across this Very. Old. Sephora concealer brush. It's so old that the Sephora is written in a serif font. Smiley Surprised

 

 

Which made me think of this old powder brush from Prescriptives that I've kept because it cost me a fortune at the time and was a massive splurge. I bought it in 2004 I think and it was the softest brush I'd ever felt. Now it seems quite scratchy and I never touch it but I'll never get rid of it! Smiley Happy 

 

 

 

Re: Love for Brushes

I think I can date these back to sometime around 2004-2005...oldies but goodies! Most of them are currently in use (but I was also a very occasional makeup wearer back when my sis gifted them to me, as in once or twice a year until last year, so it's not like these have endured 13+ years of abuse...they enjoyed 12 years of sitting in storage, more or less lol).

Re: Love for Brushes

Wayne Goss Air Brush returning soon to Beautylish...

 

 

 

 

 

Re: Love for Brushes

I like this brush. I hope WG makes it permanent in his collection. I have 2 o..o

Re: Love for Brushes

This looks very similar to Suqqu large eye shadow brush (which I use for highlighter/blush/sometimes powder)

Re: Love for Brushes

This one and #14...even days where I'm not planning on wearing makeup, I'll put on some blush and highlighter just to use the brushes Smiley Happy Waiting impatiently for the new white brushes to drop as singles!

Re: Love for Brushes

Not sure if it had been posted before but VisageUSA has 15% off on $80+ purchase with SAKURA2017 and 18% off on $150+ purchase with APRIL2017.  I think the promotion will end on Apr 23.  I resisted for the longest time and ended up giving in and bought 2 face brushes (GS-T and R-C2).  Ugg!

Re: Love for Brushes

Oh no...this is dangerous information! I've been trying to be good but this is going to be hard to resist!

Re: Love for Brushes

I know right? With the discount, the prices are even better than buying from Cdjapan. Not sure why Visage didn't charge me any tax either even though I'm in California 

Re: Love for Brushes

Thanks for the info @blackkitty2014 I don't need another brush, but who can resist a great sale?

Re: Love for Brushes

I'm so guilty of buying the brushes that I don't need. I probably still have couple brushes haven't been washed and used Smiley Sad

Re: Love for Brushes

I'm guilty of that too! lol.  It's so pretty and has white bristles, I don't want it to get dirty (I know silly, right?).

 

Re: Love for Brushes

Wayne Goss air brush is back in stock! Just ordered (didn't receive email notification or text either)

Re: Love for Brushes

Thank you!!!! I just ordered 2 and no email either! You're a rockstar Smiley Happy
