While I was shopping at Target last week, I came upon some of the e.l.f. holiday collection sets and picked up a few things that I thought I would give away as inexpensive gifts to some young aquaintances that I have. One of the items that interested me was the 10 Piece Brush Set. I decided to get one for myself and debated whether or not to pick up more but didn't.
The set includes blush brush, foundation brush, brow comb and brush, eyelash and brow wand, eye liner brush, concealer brush, eyeshadow brush, smudge eye sponge, lip defining brush and total face brush. The set was only $10.00 and even though there were several items that didn't interest me in the set, I thought that that was an excellent deal.
Washing your brushes before use is a must so I set aside some time to wash all of these brushes using my trusty and much loved, Daiso Puff and Sponge Cleanser. I noticed that while washing the blush brush and total face brush, they had a very funky scent. It was reminiscent of when I washed the natural animal hair brushes that I own from Crown Brushes. When I laid them out to dry, I tried to reshape them back into the shape it should be but it was to no avail. This is the end result of it after it dried:
Total Face Brush:
It's a bit of a disappointment because these were the two brushes that I thought I would make the most use of. The other brushes washed and dried well. I haven't used any of them but I'm sure that they will be fine. I can't be too disappointed though because it was only $10.00 for the set and I'll be using most of the other brushes. I'm just glad that I didn't end up buying any sets to give away.
