DFS 2018 LE Brush Announced!!! Read more here!!

#1
I use 2 brushes which l believe to be insufficient. One is a big floppy and scratchy boar brush and the other is a small decent synthetic that has a tiny handle that l cannot get the hang out of it.

So I decided to spend up to 50 euros to buy a decent and functional brush preferably of badges or synthetic bristles with a 22-24m knot.

Any advice, recommendations or help will be greatly appreciated

I dunno conversion of euros but a custom brush from one of the artisans should fit you're budget. For badger if you want good backbone no flop go with a 2 band. A semogue 2 band probably has the most backbone of any brush I've ever tried but to be soft they take a bit to break in. For your budget I'd still say go with custom with a tgn 2 band to stay on the cheap side.

The Semogue 2 band looks like a nice brush and l only read positive reviews about it. My only concern would be the wooden handle. Its over what l want to pay for a new brush but l may stretch my budget and go for it Smile

I'm still open to other option though.

So where do l find a custom brush maker with a good reputation?

Your post is very informative. I'll check them out. Thank you!

Someone suggested a Simpson Colonel 2X Best. Does anyone have experience with this brush? I read mixed reviews about it.

The Semogue SOC handle will last a lifetime. Just keep the handle dry when not using it. It's a great brush.

The satin tip purest. Amazing brush. Soft synthetic with a beautiful black matte finish and black fibers. It's only 15 bucks. The best part is it has backbone.

Maybe if you are in  the US its good deal, for us in the rest of the world the shipping cost is 41$. Thats outrageous.

I know some will not like this but, I went to synthetics I have a semogue that kills my lather for some reason, can't get 3 passes out of it don't know what's the deal with that boar, I have a couple floppy scritchy badgers that are ok bit scratchy. I went to plisson and recently acquired the omega s, I have been using these almost exclusively, they work, and they feel great on the face can't go wrong with that.

I'm not against synthetics. I own one and love the syntgetic bristles, the reason l don't use it is its small handle.
