I love - no, adore - brushes. Perhaps way more than makeup. My love for brushes has had me collect them for the past few years, many at hard-to-swallow prices. My very first brush is MAC's 209 that I purchased along with Fluidline. Back then, I had little knowledge of how to take care of a brush, which led to splayed bristles and loose joint between the ferrel and the handle. The loose joint has been fixed, but there can't be anything done to fix the splayed bristles (quite tragic since even the tiny eyeliner brush comes at a high price - at MAC that is).

It's been almost 3 years that I've been collecting brushes, and I'm still amazed, excited, and proud at how my collection has grown. 3 years have had run me through several washing and storage options. Of all the tests I've ran, mild shampoo is the best for washing, and (really geeky, but) my adored 600 ml Pyrex beaker filled with acrylic vase fillers is the best for storage. It is a bit tight with all the vase fillers to hold all my brushes in the beaker, but for now, this will do for me.
