*Brush War* Contender Introduction (arrival) thread...
Contender #1 has arrived fellas..... My idea is to take pictures AS I open up the box and first view the brushes, so you also get the feeling of tearing into your new brush, comparing it, the experience etc. With ALL luxury items, all facets of the purchase/use must be considered, so I wish to share with you the presentation of each brush as well. How fun!
Just as a side note, I plan on very methodically testing all three brushes. I plan on using one cream or soap for EACH brush one after the next (IE: Trumper Almond for its first use with the PJ3, then the NEXT day Trumper Almond for the SR3824's first use, etc) I want to keep the variables as consistent as possible, and share the day to day experience (1st use with each brush with the same cream, second use with each brush with same soap, etc) I do not believe such a test has EVER been done before on brushes in such a systematic method.
Enough nonesense.... meet brush #1.
Simpson PJ3 next to Simpson PJ2 (PJ3=unused PJ2=Used in full bloom ergo the size difference)
The PJ3 is MUCH heavier (handle wise) and although the difference looks slight, the PJ3 feels SIGNIFICANTLY more substantial and sturdy... should be VERY interesting to see how it performs. On a side note - the hair is whiter on the PJ3 than on the PJ2... might just be due to the fact that it is new.
