    ohhh brushes.

    -big fluffy bodyshop brush, for when i never put face stuff on. no idea why i really have it.

    -medium sized annabell fluffy blender brush (like 10 years old).
    -mac 275SE and 212SE from the 2006 christmas set

    -annabelle lisptick brush, that i use for eyeliner
    -mac 217SE, also christmas 2006
    -mac 310SE christmas 2005
    -small sized annabelle fluffy brush. also 10 years old

    -mac 239SE, christmas 2005
    -mac 266SE, christmas 2005
    -mac 209SE, christmas 2006

    -a paintbrush that i use for applying emollient bases

    -bodyshop angled brush

    -mac 208
    -QUO angle brush
    -LAB Blender/packer**

    -two stupid cheap brushes i bought for crappy costume makeup.

    -four VERY EXPENSIVE, but on sale Diego Dalla Palma #8 brushes. **


    **we all know the mac brushes are good and wonderful but this LAB brush. jesus. it cost me like 6 quid and is one of the nicest brushes ive ever used. and the Diego dalla palma brushes? there's a reason that i have four of them. I love them so so so much. if you can get your hands on them, and can afford to pay for them, DO IT. they are like $40 each. but i got them on clearance

    Holy shit you know your brushes! @lellojello
    I'm lucky if I even remember where I bought mine, I tend to accumulate brushes everywhere I go :p
    Also this had inspired me to clean my brushes tonight :D

    Lol I mostly just read the handles. And I'm awful for washing them. I recently did it. Before that, it was about a year and a half!

    Hahahaha I feel that so hard! :D
    My last post was a total lie, I was getting ready to wash them and started watching a horror movie marathon instead.
    It's still on my to-do list, but because I have so many it's not an emergency yet :p

    I totes forgot about this thread, and my promise to post my brushes :imslow:

    New question: what do you guys use to clean your brushes/sponges? I used to use the Sephora brand cleaner but about a year ago I noticed my brushes were looking rough. I switched to baby shampoo with an alcohol rinse and not only do they get cleaner faster they're actually softer :hearts:

    Haha no it says to spray your brushes with it, but then to just spin them around in the air and then let them dry. No water required. But it stinks and hurts my eyes so I use water.

    How does that even get the product off? I like to actually wash mine and then the alcohol rinse to get all bacteria off
