    I think I may be visiting my local TK Maxx for some cheap powder brushes. Is it me or do these fibres look familiar? By the way, the last photo is not of my hand ... my nails are much better. :thumbsup:

    Lol you'd be hard pressed tryin to use the make up brush fibers to lather with lol. Not that i've tried :wink: they are just too soft and are designed for powders and foundation creams. Soap lathers are just to heavy for them

    Yes exactly what I call them. Make up brushes

    The fibres won't be altogether different but the knot construction will be. Applying makeup involves less water and stress than building lather.

    Aww Bob, I was all set to skip down to the shops and see what I could lay my hands on! Something like this would be a treat. :giggle:

    Try it anyway. What is the worst that can happen other than the old boot getting a new makeup brush. :)

    You are right. A few years ago I went on a fishing trip to Canada. I was driving North and the first night I realized I left my shaving brush home. This was before wet shaving began to grow again. I stopped at Wal-Mart, Target, and various grocery and pharmacy stores trying to find a shaving brush. I then hit upon a "great idea" - a huge makeup brush. It was made out of nylon. Try as I might the brush would not hold any lather. The lather just fell from the brush.
