But a price drop on a stellar makeup brush (that is also unwisely being discontinued) is too good not to share!
Last year I bought a quality makup brush from the IT For Ulta Velvet Luxe line. The brushes in that particular line, are plush, soft, firm, percision in application; and never, ever shed. In other words, everything we want: It is hands down the best makeup brush I've ever used!
Retailing at $48, I was happy to get it on sale for $24. In the future I knew I had to buy more makeup brushes in the Velvet Luxe line to replace inferior brushes ... when they again went on sale. Although on sale, the money still adds up!
Not until a year later did I return to Ulta to buy my 2nd (a blush) brush. To my great surprise, Ulta is out of stock of the It Velvet Luxe blush brush (as well as many of the other Velvet Luxe brushes which do other jobs expertly). Why??? Because IT Cosmetics is in the process of discontinuing their Velvet Luxe variety of brushes. Insane!!! ~~ as their new brushes -- at the same price -- are inferior! They are not as soft or plush! So double trouble!!
Readers, the light at end of the tunnel is ... you can (while supplies last) still buy the IT For Ulta Velvet Luxe brushes on eBay for even less money than Ulta's best sale price.
I own 4 of the IT Velvet Luxe brushes: LBD Powder #307; Plush Foundation #304 (a multi-tasker, I use it for blush and bronzer); Soft Focus Sculpting #315 (blush); and I just ordered the Empress Fan brush #324 (such a price drop why not? ... to set makeup with finishing powder). I also like the Kabuki brush -- it's the biggest of the brushes. If you don't mind the size, you can use it in place of the #307 and #324 brushes. Truly once you pay for an item and walk out the door, it's nobody's business how you use it!
As to why IT Cosmetics is replacing their superior Velvet Luxe brushes with less plush, or stiffer bristles I haven't a clue. :(
