Loew Cornell 3/8 Maxine's Mop
Loew Cornell 3/8 Maxine's Mop says ---
Flat oval white hair mops with short purple handles. All natural hair brushes in timeless, popular shapes with incredibly soft bristles. Affordably priced. These brushes hold lots of color for artists and can also be easily used as substitutes for MAC makeup brushes! These brushes apply makeup evenly and are great for blending harsh lines.
AMW says ---
- non-scratchy, very soft bristles
- no flyaways
- no bleeding when washed even for the first time
- no shedding
- very inexpensive
- perfect dupe for MAC's 239, actually rephrase, this is the best dupe of MAC 239 I have ever seen and touched
- the bristles are not super soft and just right to pick up colors
- very dense
- can pick up eyeshadows really well
- available locally!
- the only downside is the handle's color, purple which other professionals wouldn't want (in my case, with the price? I don't mind at all!)
- not all Loew Cornell brushes are sold locally
With my watchful 5 senses, I've tested this and compared this to MAC 239 that I own for more than a year. This is the exact dupe of MACs 239. The bristles of Loew Cornell is just a tiny bit longer compared to MACs but it doesn't make a difference on application. The performance of Loew Cornell brush is great! No need to even compare this to MAC as it works! It really does work in packing colors and it's a breeze in application! No scratchy feel and best of all! The inexpensive price!!!
- wash this before you start using
- put on sticker or paint it with a nail polish color so you'll know its yours
- share shipping with a friend

Now, everyone would definitely want to see this brush compared to the famous MAC239. Thank goodness I own MAC 239 to be able to show you how both looks like side by side.
Loew Cornell brush is about half an inch longer and the handle is slimmer. MAC's handle is in black while the LC one is in dark purple which obviously looks like a painter's brush!
MACs ferrule is half an inch longer. I've used both many times and it doesn't make a huge difference in application. Both bristles are glued pretty well on the ferrules and I tried to pull the ferrule away from the wood but failed. Both are glued pretty well! (thank goodness)
As seen on photo below, the shape of the bristles are almost the same! The bristles of Loew Cornell is jut a tiny bit longer but the texture, the softness are exactly the same base on AMW touch test!
Side View of the bristles, MAC 239 bristles are a bit thicker, again, it doesn't make a huge difference during application!
A lot of readers would email me and ask for inexpensive brushes that does the job! Well, I'm glad to share to you my good find! Thanks to Sol for bringing in the Loew Cornell brush as I've been wanting to purchase this ever since I've seen them on reviews!
Have a wonderful start of the week!
