You know it’s bad when you’re in Michael’s Craft Store, and you see paint brushes and buy them for makeup. In all reality, I did go looking for them because I have been able to quote “Loew-Cornell Maxine’s Mop in 3/8th in.” since the early videos of JuicyStar07 on youtube, when she always mentioned them as exact dupes for the M.A.C. 239. I’ve never had a M.A.C. 239, (or any M.A.C. brushes for that matter) so I can’t compare the quality, but I was really impressed with these brushes! (So impressed, in fact, that I got two.) #BrushObsessed
Like I said, I did pick up two of the Loew-Cornell Maxine’s Mop in 3/8th in., and they’re so soft! They’re the perfect size for packing shadow onto your lid, so I can see myself using them every single day. I paid less than $5 for each of them, and I have been really impressed with the quality. I washed them right after I bought them and they didn’t shed at all and dried quickly.
I also picked up one of the Loew-Cornell Maxine’s Mop in 1/2 in., for lazy days when I need a wash of color and not a lot of precision. This one is fluffy enough to be used for blending, but still small enough to keep color where you want it. It is just as soft as it’s smaller sisters, and also washed really well without shedding.
Finally, I wanted to try the Loew-Cornell Spotter brush for eyeliner, because I am constantly having to wash my gel eyeliner brushes. This brush was also just a few dollars, and I’m excited to start using it!
