I got this brush via the online consultation/make up lesson recommendation. This brush started shedding since the start and is now falling apart. Also when I apply foundation using this brush I get the stray brush hair on sticking on my face. I had read similar reviews but didn't expect to receive a defective item. This product should either be fixed or discontinued. Since its not always about money, its also the time that is invested in getting the online makeup virtual class, selecting products and then purchasing them. Its another hassle to now return this product or find a better replacement for this brush.
