Cheap Finds : Landmark Brushes9:10:00 PM
Well just one actually...so brush not brushes. Hmm yeah...ok.
So when I chanced upon this brush, I had to get it because.
- My ELF flat top brush has been monstrously resurrected after I attempted to prolong its life using pliers on the ferrule.
- It's synthetic hence perfect for creams and liquids.
- The hairs are red.
- It's cheap at around 130-180 Philippine Pesos/PHP
Truth be told, I wasn't sold on the color initially. I mean, metallic red? Welcome to tacky-ville. But as I held it firm upon my mortal hands it seemed more eye catching than black or white (my usual brush color preference).
I've had it for close to a year now I believe, and it hasn't shed or bled (contrary to the striking red brush hair) at all. There were admittedly 1 or 2 instances I had to pluck a stray out of place but that was it.
I also put the synthetic aspect of the brush under neutral as some people like natural hair. I think the same too when it comes to picking up powder - natural is the best BUT taking care of them is a hassle compared to synthetic ones - whose hairs keep their shape longer even with just minimal care.
Bottomline, I recommend this brush or any brush for that matter you can find at The Landmark. I haven't tried all of them, but I'm sure they're ok for the price. I've tried some testers of the kabuki brushes there and they're SUPER soft, as soft as the ELF kabuki brush (for reference).
Have you tried some brushes there?
PS. Hooray for awkward intros. NOT. Seriously sometimes I just don't know how to open my posts, doyafeelme?
PPS. So I've heard The Landmark tried to sell some replica Real Technique brushes. I read somewhere that someone liked it and it wasn't bad. For the price, I bet it wasn't. :) I wouldn't mind buying those too! Haha #realTalk Seriously though, even if it said dingdong brushes, I'd still get them.
