There were many brands I thought of considering, especially the country has been booming with local entrepreneurs who sure knew what a consumer, heck, what a kikay consumer really wants.
But more than being kikay, and a makeup lover, I am also a lazy consumer. The thought of buying another set meant lingering in my bathroom longer to wash them thrice a week or more, if I use them MORE. I cannot express my disdain on washing them enough – I hate washing. :D
Stumbling upon Venus and Mars’ Antibacterial 5-pc. Brush Set was a rather welcome thought – a welcome purchase to have.

Venus and Mars says:
"These brushes are active AGAINST bacteria; hence it prevents them from lingering in the bristles. These bacteria are the main cause of the formation of blackheads, whiteheads, pimples and other irritating skin blemishes."
I am one who rallies against dirty brushes but is too lazy to wash them. This product is SO ME!
Manufactured in Hong Kong, the V&M Antibacterial Makeup Brushes are tailor-made for Venus and Mars, you don’t risk running into someone who has the same but not from VNM.
I am definitely in love with their scarlet handles and elegant two-toned bristles.
And the fact that its pouch is not made of leather and IS waterproof makes it much of a winner in my book. For someone who is burara and un-careful with most things, this being a waterproof pouch is a plus plus. :D
Brush pouch is zippable! Woot!
Retailing at P 1,099, the brushes are very affordable for such size. If there was anything I am looking for with whatever I buy in life [from investments to make up], I make sure I get the bang for the buck. This is one of them.
