I went into the “Icing by Claire’s” store and stopped by their make-up section. I have never bought a brush from them and wasn’t too impressed by the quality of their brushes, until I ran into these two. They feel like professional brushes. Next time you’re at the mall please go in and see for yourself. The best part is that they are $6.50 each and right now cosmetics are buy one get the next at 50% off. I paid $9.75 for both!
