About a year ago a purchased a brush set from Coastal Scents, and while the eye brushes are holding up fine, the face brushes took a crap. I received 2 flat top kabuki type brushes instead of one (score!), but sadly they both met the garbage quite a long time ago. They both shed so bad that eventually the whole entire bristle part just fell out. The handles have all been hot glued back to the ferrule of every single face brush. Basically, I was in need of new face brushes.
About 4 months ago I purchased my first set of Real Techniques brushes from Ulta. I decided to go with the Core Collection to try out. I fell in LOVE!!! They are so, so soft. There is not a traditional ferrule to the brushes, which is nice, because mine always come loose. Instead they have long aluminum type handles that the bristles fit into. These brushes wash like a dream, and dry pretty darn quickly, compared to a lot of other brushes. Needless to say, after that I just kept on picking up more brushes. I now have quite a collection, and I thought I'd share with you my favorite ways to each brush.
