Rated 4 out of 5Â by Coralista Fairly durable, nice application
I keep my makeup brushes for years, and years, so I usually purchase brushes that are double the cost of this one. For the price, naturally, I don't like to carry these brushes around with me, because I don't want them getting damaged. TheBalm's brushes appear to be good quality, and durable, so I purchased a couple of them for my travel bag. TheBalm's brushes don't irritate my skin, they are soft, they apply makeup evenly, and they keep their shape and texture after washing. This powder brush is great for a dusting of powder, and it's also good for blending. My problem with The Balm brushes is that all the printed decoration wore off the handles, after using each brush only a few times. I wash only the hair part of the brushes, and I don't get the handles wet. If the decals wore off all the way, it wouldn't bother me as much, because then I'd just have white brushes. However, at this point I can't get the rest of the printing off, so my brushes just look scratched up and dirty, even though they are clean and have no scratches. Otherwise this brush will likely last for many years.
