Review : Loew Cornell Maxine 270 Mop Brush

*click photo to enlarge*

Flat oval white hair mops with short purple handles. All natural hair brushes in timeless, popular shapes with incredibly soft bristles. Affordably priced. These brushes hold lots of color for artists and can also be easily used as substitutes for MAC makeup brushes! These brushes apply makeup evenly and are great for blending harsh lines. - from

RETAIL PRICE: Php 300 or about $6.

* soft! this is made of goat hair.
* affordable
* inexpensive compared to the MAC 239 brush
* looks sturdy, this is a painter's brush btw.
* does a good job of picking up pigments
* packs eyeshadow on the lid to make the color more vibrant
* not scratchy
* did not shed on the first wash
* dries quickly

* not all sizes are available locally.
TIPS:I just wash this with dishwashing liquid diluted with a bit of water.
So happy I bought this brush! I find the MAC 239 expensive LOL

RATING :5 / 5
