Since we are on the subject of brushes.... Have you seen the new Brush Couture makeup brushes from Sonia Kashuk. They are just adorable! I purchased this brush along with an eyeshadow brush of the same pattern. The brush was $10.99US from my local Target.
I was so excited to use this brush, being so cute and all, and I was so disappointed with the quality of the brush. The bristles are very scratchy! Usually Sonia Kashuk's brushes are fairly soft and a pretty decent value. Secondly, ever time I use this brush my face is covered in hair! And it's not because I didn't wax :) It sheds like crazy!
So, overall I would not recommend purchasing the flat top brush couture brush. Thumbs down from me! Don't worry, I still love you Sonia Kashuk!
