ebay.com
chanel has NEVER made a brush like this for individual sale.

maybe its from a GWP or something.

but never for sale in that size, besides the chanel letters look too close to eachother and they look sticked on... they're carved on the real ones

Speaking of Chanel brushes, how are they? How do they compare to MAC?

I feel like being a bit vain because they simply look better. But if it's not worth it, nevermind.

I use the bobbi brown gel eyeliner and have tried both mac and bobbi brown eyeliner brushes. I liked the bobbi brown one better, it kept a good point longer. All my other brushes are mac but this is the only one I'd go to bobbi brown on.

Chanel, All I hear is raves for MAC's 182, which is why I bought it.. and I haven't been dissapointed.. it is good, very soft, doesn't loose it's hairs...but then again I only have BE's to compare with and that one I find is utter crap.

I use Armani and highly recommend the Blender Brush. I use one for foundation and one travel sized blender brush for my creme blusher - I just find that gives a smoother application and it's easier to blend and build the colour that way.

I recently bought Make Up Forever brush cleaner - has anyone else tried this? And if you use a brush cleaner as opposed to baby shampoo, whats the most effective way of using it?
Thanks

I have MAC's brush cleanser... But maybe it works somewhat in the same way? First I dampen my brush with water, then I splash a bit of the brush cleanser liquid onto some tissue/toiletpaper and sort of just brush the wet paper with the brush in circles, working the cleanser into the brush. Then I rinse and reshape the brush and set it out to dry flat. It's easy and the brush is like new But take care: I did this once where I used the brush while it was still a bit damp/perhaps there was some residue of the cleanser left on it, and it stung a little.

^Thanks for that!
It says to try something similar, or dip it into some of the cleaner but I felt like I needed to rinse it, but wasn't sure if that was a good idea...I find my Armani brush dries and reshapes really well.

Can someone who's familiar with Chanel brushes tell me if this looks authentic? It's from a seller I trust, but I'm still cautious.

Or if any of the other brushes going for nothing on ebay are real? Some of them look really fake, but others I'm unsure of.

Anybody know much about NARS brushes? Aside from the fact that they're ridiculously expensive! I've already bought the NARS #2 eyeliner brush on Ebay and their bronzer brush should be coming any day now!
