I really want to share with you guys a picture of the sable paint brush I got from National bookstore..remember the time when Loew Cornell brushes are so in-demand because of Enkore's review on Youtube? well since that time, I already wanted to purchase one coz it is more practical than buying from MAC..but sadly, the brand is not available locally and I can't find good natural hair paint brushes here..but lucky me, when I went to Trinoma last month, I got curious again and asked the sales lady if they have natural hair paint brushes..and yes they do have!The brand of the brush is Jianghai and the brush number I got is #6..it looks like a MAC 242 (I think) in size and shape of the head..It does a good job in applying eyeshadows coz it doesn't "eat" my shadows unlike with my EDM eyeshadow brush and instead deposits the pigments on my lids..it is made of soft sable hairs and so far it had not shedded and bled on me even after washing them..I really like it so much! the only downside of using a paint brush as an eyeshadow brush is that the handle is too long! and I mean LONG!!! the whole brush is like the length of 2 MAC 217 brush hehe..so it fits horizontally on my traincase..so there..I think I'll just buy a smaller eye shadow brush for travels :)
Here's a size comparison of the head of my MAC 217 and my new brush.
Nikki of Not just Minerals suggested that I should just cut the handle off so that I will not have any problem ..so one night, I used my dad's Swiss Army Knife (the filer) and saw off my brush ..here it is now :)
Thanx for dropping by again to this post! Ciao!
