This area is under construction as my hair type changed and nothing works well for me. I shampoo, I condition and pretty much have done nothing but chuck my hair in a messy bun for the past oh...year? Yeah, I'm that lazy.

No...going no-poo or CG does not work for me. It leaves me overconditioned and oily in a second no matter what I use, so that's not what's not working.
Not necessarily...

Borghese isn't bad at all.

Heck, Costco sells Chanel! So buying at Costco isn't an automatic negative.

Anyone got brushes from abbamart.com? Looks like good quality.
I've never heard of abbamart.

It seems more popular with international people. On youtube most of the reviews are in a foreign language.

I'm eyeing their duo fibre brushes. And their goat hair fluffy blending brush looks good too.

My goat hair brushes from a groupon deal are arriving today! YAY!!! No more real techniques "crease" brush.

How some people get so many likes/subscribers is beyond me.

Sour grapes?

Maybe.

TNB:

You introduced me to LASplash, and now I have a question for you. I have fallen in love with some of their loose e/s colors and wonder what you use as a base for them. LASplash makes it seem that you have to use their shadow sealer and I just don't believe that (plus I can't find any except at cherry culture and it was out of stock). Do you have any of their loose shadows? What do you use as a base?

I think you're right about the manufacturer. I've had brushes from pretty much everywhere and still do for some (Merle Norman, MAC, Sephora, drugstore and some I can't remember) and they were the best until I bought some painting and ELF brushes that I saw recommended on here and another site. I wanted slightly larger brushes.
