UPDATE AND ARTISTE BRUSH REVIEW

Hey everyone,

UPDATE:
So today was officially the first day of holidays (Australia's spring break).
Nothing big has been happening i worked yesterday and today i just went to the park.
For this week i have planned some things with my friends which consist of a trip to the beach, a visit to the mall and a stop at the movies.

REVIEW AS REQUESTED:
Artiste is a brand owned by manicare that sell brushes. I can not find what they are made of but its either real hair or very good synthetic hair.

My first Artiste brush is #12 rounded powder brush ($22.95). As you can see the price is very reasonable and it resembles the MAC 129 or 150.
PROS:
* Picks up a lot of product
* Distributes evenly
* Extremley soft bristles
* Smooth handle and accents
* Low maintenance
CONS:
* Sheds hair ocassionaly

* Kind of smells bad
* Becomes static at times
Overall, you are getting what you pay for and i would definitley reccomend this brush especially if you are looking for a cheaper alternative to MAC. The pros outweigh the cons and therefore i believe that this would be a great purchase.


JORDY,

Oh and i announce the winner of my competition tomorrow :)

Thanks for letting us know about the brush Jordy =) I really hate it when a brush sheds though - it's like my MAC129 short handle brush (it sheds like crazy) which I'm in a love hate relationship with because I love it for applying bronzer but the shedding is crazy! LOL.
