The Brush Guard Review

I LOVE these!! I tend to throw my brushes into my makeup bag when I travel and they tend to get smashed and frayed. I know I need to take better care of my brushes since eveyone knows MAC brushes aren't exactly cheap. My solution? The brush guard! These sell for $5.50 on they have multiple sizes and for this price it is so worth it! I can't wait to try these out after I wash my brushes as my 217 tends to fray and have stray hairs after I clean it. Basically these are made of a stretchable mesh material that you slide from the handle to the bristles and it keeps the shape of your brush and protects it from getting snagged/squished. I love these so much I plan to have a contest in July and have this as one of my prizes. Stay tuned and I hope you get a chance to check these out!


  1. i bought the sampler pack (the one w/all different sizes of the guards) of the brush guard last nov and i love them as well!! i use them to dry my brushes and i must say my brush bristles look BRAND new. although for travel i still prefer brush sleeves (plastic sleeves for brushes) because the brush guards can move and if they move towards the handle then your bristles get messed up :/ but at home these guards are awesome!

  2. I love these too! I just order 3 packs from CS!

  3. Loooove the brush guard!! My bristles used to get caught in the zipper of my makeup bag... but not anymore!!
