Brush Guards

i'm extremely OC with my brushes. i store them in their respective plastics (the ones they came with) after each use, and i wash them every week. it was getting a bit tiresome though, having to figure out which plastic belongs to whom, and they were already getting dirty too (the plastics i mean). it just didn't seem right storing perfectly clean brushes in crummy cases. so i decided to purchase The Brush Guard packs.

from The Brush Guard site:
The Brush Guard is a stretchable, breathable tube which protects your makeup brushes:

  • While drying - bristles dry in perfect shape
  • In use- handle stays clean and grips better
  • In storage - no snags or squashing
  • On the move—perfect packing

i bought 2 from my beauty basket: the Variety Pack which contains 1 large, 2 medium, 2 small, 1 extra small, and the Small Guard Pack which contains 8 small guards. they retail at P375 each pack, but good thing i scored 10% off thanks to their anniversary sale :)

this is ideal for fat brushes, say powder, stippling, or flat top brushes. perfect for my M.A.C. 187SE :)

this is ideal for foundation or blush brushes. i use it on my M.A.C 168SE and M.A.C 190SE. my 187 actually fits as well, but i don't want to overstretch the guard.

this is ideal for eyeshadow brushes. as you can see, it fits different sizes

extra small
this is ideal for extremely thin brushes. i use it on my suesh eyeliner brush. it also fits my other thin brushes (such as lip and brow), but again, i don't want to overstretch

so here are my brushes with their new homes :)

i call 'em the chosen 14 :P unfortunately not all my brushes got brush guards, i have a couple more who don't :( that'll do for now, i figured that's better than having extra guards, i might be tempted to buy more brushes hahaha!
