I recently went to target to pick up a couple of face brushes. While I was there I decided to get e.l.f brushes. I purchased the Essential Foundation Brush and the Essential Blushing, Bronzing and Blending Brush both for $1.00 each. Keep in mind I have many other brushes from sephora, sonia kashuk, and laura mercier. Ok, so, after testing out these brushes, I can say that I definitely got what I paid for. The ferrule completely came off of the handle of both brushes! I placed it back on but now it is a little wobbly. I have never had this problem with any of my other brushes. Does anyone else have this problem, or maybe I purchased duds? This happened to both within like 3 times I used them. Needless to say, I am very dissatisfied with the packaging since its flimsy. I am going to keep the brushes because I like the bristles just not the packaging. My quick fix will be to hot glue it back together. Anyways, be careful if you buy these brushes!
