I have been searching for an inexpensive good quality stippling brush. I live a plane ride away from Manila which limits my search to local malls. Thus giving me only two options; to buy the stippling brush from Etude House (the only store that sells it that i know of) or purchase one online. I wasn't really pleased with Etude House's stippling brush since I find it a bit flimsy and less dense than what I would expect a stippling brush to be. If I were to purchase online, I would have to pay additional for shipping. . .
Anyway. . . I got lucky! I was actually roaming around the downtown area of Iloilo City when I stumbled upon a newly opened "divisoria" type store which had two stories and I wish I had taken note of its name. . . At the bottom floor the moment I walked in, I saw shelves full of (fake branded perfumes) and a lot of China brand cosmetics. But in n a little corner just as I was about to leave I spotted my very first Deal Thrill! drum roll please. . . viola!
I know!. . . even until now, I cant believe i got it for this cheap! I even asked the sales assistant and she said It is 45 php (about a dollar) and I know it retails for around 12 to 13 pounds which is roughly at 804+ php at the moment.
If you have a GOSH brush does it have this on it's packaging too?
Here's How the bristles look like:
I have to say that it is quite dense which I actually like. The bristles are 50% synthetic and 50% real hair.
|the bristles looked squished probably because of the packaging|
Remember: never to under estimate cheap looking stores. . . believe me there are hidden treasures inside :) but be safe! lol this isn't the first time I found good makeup brushes for cheap. But I will be talking about those in another blog post. Till then. . . take care and stay happy!
