Let’s be real here, we all sprout some unsightly, long freaky hairs on our face. It’s not unusual, all you gotta do it break out your tweezers and take care of it. Whatevs, it’s natural! But what’s not natural? Long freaky hairs leftover on your face from your makeup brush! YICK!
I’m not some professional brush fiend, okay? I’m not going to sit here and tell you to blow your paychecks on makeup brushes, that’s ridiculous. Please, you’ve got better things to spend your money on – like makeup for the brushes Cheaper to midgrade brushes have proven to be just fine – just fine for my taste at least! I’ve never really encountered many problems with brushes. Overtime, even the cheapest of brushes have gotten better. Those crappy ones they throw in the makeup kits are even pretty decent now! But what I’m about to show you should never happen…ever.
When I first got this brush, I just thought that there were some longer bristles. I was in a hurry to get ready for work so trimming them would be a task for later. I swirled this around my mineral foundation, applied it to my skin, and…oh my gosh, whiskers! There was hair falling out all over the place from this brush and just sticking right on my face. Not only did it look so stupid, it tickled! It’s like when you get hair stuck to your lipstick/gloss and you struggle to get it loose. Why would these prove to be such a challenge to remove?!
Then I thought, “okay, this is new, it’s probably gotta shed a of the extra hairs a little bit.” So I kept pulling and pulling and pulling and pulling and pulling and pulling. It all just keeps coming out! Fewer hair started coming out so I decided to give this a try a few more days in a row. Sure I didn’t have as much hair as the first day, but the point is, I shouldn’t have ANY of these hair bristles on my face!
I’ve had my fair share of e.l.f. makeup brushes and haven’t had any experience like this before with them. Maybe this one is just a fluke? I’m really not sure, but I’m not interested in trying another one in order to feel like “The Bearded Lady Circus Sideshow”.
I’ll count this as a loss of my $3 and move along!
