    You can also try the following: antibacterial hand soap or antibacterial face wash, baby shampoo or any other GENTLE shampoo. I recommend investing in a specialised brush shampoo when you can, as they are usually more conditioning and gentle on the brush bristles :) x

    Shannon, I love you and your products, but why were the face and eye brushes in the beginning of your video so similar to the BH cosmetics, morphe, crown, bsmall, etc brushes that exist already? I can tell that some of your brushes are the same and some of them are definitely more high quality but ...the price seems to be very high for things that look the same as the other cheap ones in the market. I love you and this is an honest question. I am just curious.

    I came to see how to clean brushes not buy brushes. I get self promotion and everything but for real the first half of the video is just about different kinds of brushes. Complete waste of time.

    You seem so hesitant to boast your success! Damn girl you have a GREAT company going for you with out of this world quality for a competitive price. My XO brushes are my all time favorites and my most reached for. It's okay to be happy and proud. You've done amazingly well and I reckon you have so many more amazing things coming to you. Scream that success. You've earned the bragging rights. Amazing business woman.

    In euros the brushes are quite cheap in my opinion and I'm so happy for that. The 12 piece set was 86€ and when I get my next paycheck, I'm so gonna order it if there's some still left. 😌 Lots of love and kisses from Finland ❤️❤️

    I have a real problem! I tried cleaning my makeup brushes the other day (over £150 worth including Mac, real techniques and sigma) I used olive oil, a bit of warm water and antibacterial soap then I rinsed then with water. I went to use them the next day and they were extremely oily! When I tried to use the they just covered my face in oil and ruined all my makeup and my face looked like an oily shinny mess! How do I get this oil out of the brushes?!?! 😁

    Shannon. I realise you don't know a lot of your followers personally but I feel like we know YOU. And I just wanted to pop this comment here for you, whether you see/read it or not, I'm sure many others will agree with me. As a fellow Kiwi myself, I am really just super proud of how much work you've put into your business. Not only your business but your channel as well obviously. You are clearly such a hard worker and it makes me so so proud to see how excited you are to share these products and looks with us. You have made me love makeup and I've learnt so much from you and I just really am super proud of how proud YOU are. You are one hard working, deserving girl and your personality just shines through your videos like sunshine. I'm really proud to be a fellow New Zealander with you and to call myself one of your followers. :) +shaaanxo
    With Love... XO
