I love ELF brushes, particularly the ones with the white handle (as opposed to the black handles). I don't know if there a difference. Also, don't be alarmed but when you wash them, the dye kind of runs of.
Other than that, my favourite drugstore brand is Revlon with Maybelline becoming a close second.
Hair type: Mostly 3C, medium porosity, dense, fluffy, dry, tangly!
