Mail time has come once again! I finally received my brush guards yesterday. I ordered this in early January but the first parcel Diane sent got lost in the mail, so she sent me another one.
So what exactly are Brush Guards?
Brush Guards are stretchable mesh tubes which will help protect our precious brushes from dirt, dust and deforming. It is also useful in drying brushes after washing or cleaning, it helps the bristles stay in shape.
Which makes me wonder, how do you dry your brushes? I personally like to lay them flat in a table with the bristles hanging out so that they don't get flat, especially the rounded ones (got this tip from Bobbi Brown's Beauty Evolution). But now that I have Brush Guards, I can just wash my brushes, put the Brush Guards on and dry them bristles down in a cup. Just as stated in the instructions. Not only will the brushes dry nicely, the ferrule will also be protected from water.
I got 2 Variety Packs ($5.50 inc. tax) which contains 6 pieces of Brush Guards per pack
1 extra small BG for an eye liner brush
2 small BGs for blush brush
2 medium BGs for foundation brush
1 large BG for a kabuki or powder brush
My happy brushes :)
now I can safely store them in a brush roll. yay! :)
NOTE: It is important to read instructions as these Brush Guards are not meant to be pulled towards the handle, it might destroy your brush. ALWAYS slide Brush Guards from the handles towards the bristles.
Happy weekend everyone! ^.^
