Fab Finds: Cosmetic Brush Guard

11:47:00 AM

I'm not sure if you ladies remembered, but a few years ago around 2008 the Brush Guard was released. It was such a craze on youtube that almost all beauty gurus had them.  A few months ago while I as looking for disposable mascara wands, I accidentally found this cosmetic brush guard from a Hong Kong based seller on ebay.ph as I was perusing through different beauty tools.


While the original Brush Guard costs about $5.00 per pack which contains only 5 to 8 pieces of brush covers, this cost only $1.00 at ebay and it has free shipping. There's a catch though, since it is from Hong Kong, it takes a long time for it to arrive. I got mine after 60 days of waiting.


What I like about this is that, it's a continues roll of 1 meter plastic mesh which you can cut to whatever size you want.  Thus, you can make about 10 to12 brush guard strips for only a dollar (about 43 pesos).  This has a medium size width, so it can fit most of my makeup brushes.




As you can see in the photos above I cut the mesh to different sizes depending on the size of brush. I hope this would give our local online entrepreneurs an idea to also sell this on their shop, so that we won't have to wait 2 months for this to arrive. ^_^

I've never used the original brush guards, but I'm quite happy with this. Share your experiences if you've used them. Until next time.

Cheerios!

    1. hehehe, I get your point. the only reason I'm using a brush guard, is to keep the bristles of my brushes from tugging. because I place them inside a brush roll. ^_^

  6. I really need brush guards for when I am drying my brushes after deep cleaning them. Love that it comes in a long strip so you can cut them accordingly. And its so affordable! Thanks for posting about this~

  11. @Kaye PH, You can buy the authentic brush guards at the Dolled Up Makeup Studio and supply (you can message them sa FB if they have stocks pa), it's located near Harold's Hotel in Lahug. Or you can visit the Beauty Bar in Ayala, they have their own brush guards which are sold for only 249 pesos and it contains 15pcs ^_^
