    Has anyone tried Asquirrel brush sets? I heard they are really soft and a very good worthwhile buy for 9 brushes for USD109.90?
    I wonder has anyone tried it?
    I have it! I love them. Very soft and well worth the $. The handle is abit long tho', if you don't mind it. Mabbe you can get the travel size one, if you like shorter handles

    Really!? I have bookmarked their website for almost 6 months and I keep on looking at them everyday. But I am just worried about their quality. You know, every company claims their products better. OK, maybe I will try.
    If anyone don't know about this website, here is it

      Why don't you just buy the face brush to try? I know there is a pure squirrel one, it's really soft. It's like the blue brush from KP, albeit with a longer handle and cheaper! As good as the kabuki brush from Lorraine, better than chanel and BB.

        I recently got the pure squirrel set and they are far softer than anything else I've tried. However, the reson I got them in the first place is because I use mineral makeup, which is all loose powder form. It makes a huge difference in application, especially for blusher but if u use the regular pressed type of blush, (like MAC)these may not 'pick up' enough cos they're so soft. hth!

          Thank you for your email.

          The Kabuki Twin 2-pc Set comes with ONE pouch that holds both of the
          brushes. If you would like an extra pouch, you can add $2 to your order
          and
          put a message in your Paypal payment form "Extra Pouch Ref Norf" so I
          can
          take care of it personally and avoid any confusion or delay.

          Hope the above is helpful. Should you need further help, please let us
          know
          as we are always happy to do so.

          Thanks again and have a lovely day!

          Kind regards
          Norf

          Please let us know exactly what you would like to buy and we will email you a Payment Request where you can make payment without using Paypal. Please let us know exactly how many and what are the items you would like to order and we will calculate a discount based on that.

          Thanks again!

          Kind regards
          Norf

              Where did you read the raves for this brush from?

              You guys might wanna check out the one from Bobbi Brown instead. I recently bought it & it's really SOFT ... not to mention so CUTE. Costs about SD$50. It's gotten almost perfect reviews in MUA.

                        A'squirrel brushes got HUuUuuGE from Australian Vogue forum.

                        I'm not really a m/u person but i have 3 sets of a'squirrel brushes (part of my obsession - collecting makeup brushes) thanks to muaer and voguette Aphrael813\APHRAEL

                        I bought the 9 piece pure squirrel set #4(bought this last year when they had buy 2 free 1 set US99.90 each), 12 piece pure squirrel and synthetic makeup brush set and the kabuki brush and i love it lots So far i have brushes from Bloom, Bobbi Brown(some of the brushes shed) , Diane von Furstenberg, KP, CK, Sonia Kashuk(great for everyday use), Lola, Too Faced, Sephora Pro, MAC, Trish McEvoy, Cat Cosmetics, MAC, Shu, Chanel, Anna Sui, L'Oreal and Kevyn Aucoin and i always go back to my A'squirrel brushes. The a'squirrel kabuki brush is sooo soft and softer than Bobbi Brown.

                        I've bought another set of #4 as a gift for my friend who works as makeup artist @ Dior and he loves the set so much. He's waiting for his 28piece now and i'm now waiting for the 2 piece Kabuki Brush. I hope this new kabuki's are softer and better than the old one.

                        If any of you need more info on a'squirrel brushes, try page Aphrael813\APHRAEL on MUA/Vogue Forum. I know that she's one of the a'squirrel brushes die hard fans.

                        P/S: Please note that i'm not linked to or work with a'squirrel, i'm just a super happy fan of their brushes.

                          oh no, i'm so tempted by both <font color=6699cc>a'squirrel twin set</font> and the <font color=ff66cc>bobbi brown face brush</font> now! both sounds so good... can't make up my mind which to get. i do love the BB's pouch a little more... the white stitch-lines are so cute and it looks fuller than a'squirrel's kabuki in the pic.

                          but on the other hand, if lele can help us get a good discount for the kabuki brushes... i might have a change of heart

                            Guess I can't hide for much longer. I actually have been lurking on and off but haven't posted much, but I supposed since I'm moving back to Singapore soon I may as well start now. Hopefully I won't spend too much money when I get home, especially since things are so much cheaper (well, sometimes ...)!

                            Anyways, yes, I am THE diehard fan of A'squirrel brushes. I've tried almost as many brands as Jepunnye, but A'squirrel is THE best. It doesn't look as pretty as the really big brands e.g. TM or KA, but the quality is superb. Unbeatable. My skin is very sensitive to harsh bristles so I can only use the softest natural hair. My top pick is pure squirrel.

                            By the end of next week I'd have tried most if not all of their brushes. I keep organising groups purchases because I can't help but spread the love for it.

                            If you have any questions about any specific brushes, let me know. I own the 28pc pro set, 9pc set, travel brush set and twin kabuki, in addition to the extra brushes in the 12pc set that weren't released at the time of my previous purchase.

                            I've also successfully goaded tons of people into loving their brushes.
