I just washed my used brushes yesterday, except for the one angled flat top brush from Artist Studio because I knew it's not worth using anymore. I loved this particular makeup brush out of all the brushes I own, and I didn't expect it would meet its end so sudden. I actually bought another one last month, and the said brush sheds non-stop so I threw it in the bin after a couple of washes. I thought it's just a one-time thing that I got a defective brush so I spared the old one - the one I used to apply my liquid foundation. During that same month, I was in denial that my old brush has gone loose despite the few strands I got from washing it. I doubted the way I cleaned the brush, but I'm cleaning it the same way I clean the other big brushes. I thought it could last a lifetime but the pictures say otherwise.
It has lost its perfectly angled shape. Lots of bristles are sticking out. I can't apply my liquid foundation because of its current state.
Yes, I intentionally tugged it just to find out how loose did it get.
My poor makeup brush. Gladly, my other Artist Studio brushes are perfectly fine. I already replaced this with the Face Shop's version of Shisheido Perfect Foundation brush. Talking about moving on so quickly :)
