I got this se brush with a holiday collection this past Xmas. This is what it looks like 3 months later! It's the buffer brush. I have seen & read a lot of people talk about the quality of these brushes is not good, & it's true. If you want the Mac brushes, it's better to wait & get the originals when you can. I use the set I got for traveling now.What is upsetting is that even though this is a special edition, it should't look like this. It's real poor quality.
Look at my coastalscents brush, it's 2 yrs old. It looks & feels great still. Even though it's not a full size brush, Mac is still putting there name on it. If you could get a soft brush for $6, why can't Mac do the same. Just saying, its only my op
