Re: Laura Mercier Brushes

yes... I recently ordered 4 of them, Selfridges messed up the order and sent me only 3. They are synthetic and made in China. I got the smudge, the eye crease and the finishing pony tail. Although they are nice shapes and relevant, I do regret this move... I am trying them at the moment to be able t...

Re: Lemmings

Hi Arch, how've you been. I remember how selective you are when choosing your brushes. Did you ever get any of these NARS brushes? I haven't bought any brushes in a while except for some surprisingly good Chinese ones. So many brushes with the same look and shapes. I'm waiting for something new and...

Re: Blue/grey/ash squirrel: whats different?

Blue vs grey/ash: The manufacture told me it depends where it comes from, the artisans will name it.

Re: Finding Perfect Brush aid

:cry: no answers! Hi Soniamaria, For mineral powder/foundation you better stick to a natural goat brush, it'll buff well and remove the excess oils on the skin as it goes.

Re: Tom Ford Natural Hair brushes discontinued?

Yes this seems to be true and since their brushes come from Japan, the synthetic fibers originating from there are still very expensive and for now, imho, not very competitive in terms of performance compared to other countries, hopefully this will change in the future, I will get some of their brus...

Re: Brushes for stick foundation

For stick foundations I think the best options are really dense and synthetic brushes, have you already tried ?
For me it's what works the best, with such formulas you need strong dense brushes, let me know if you already tried those!!
