Standing Order: Coveting a Paintbrush Holder for Makeup Brushes

by Janine on 6 October 2010 · 9 comments

I have genius sturdy brush cylinders for my makeup brushes. They’re Sephora brand, and tall enough for even my powder brushes. But sadly, they were limited edition, discontinued years ago, and I’ve not seen anything comparable since. Not until I spied the brush envelope makeup pro Chantal Hubens of judy inc. uses.

That’s my new obsession, above. A flip-open paint-brush holder from Curry’s Art Store, the cover folds back so the whole thing perches tent-like on the table. It’s been calling to me since Chantal did the makeup for the first cover of The Kit. And it held no less appeal for me on Monday, when we shot our next issue’s cover.

I’ve floated an email to Curry’s to find out if they still carry such a thing; I couldn’t find it on their website (their bamboo brush roll and cup look interesting, though).

I love my can’t-get-’em-anymore brush cylinders, but I think I need this.

UPDATE: Got an email back from Adam at Curry’s within a half hour of my query that yes, this case is still available (product code FC8825, price: $16.49), he thinks. “We have a number of similar looking cases, so you would be best to stop by the Yonge Street location, as it should have the largest selection of brush cases amongst our 3 downtown stores,” he says. As well, bit by bit, Curry’s is working on getting their full product lineup online.

Amazing. I’m always worrying about my brushes and this would be the perfect home for them. Please follow-up and let us all know if the store still carries them!!

According to Adam, the fellow who answered my email so quickly, yes, it’s still in stock — and under $20!

I love the *idea* of it but I’d need at least 3 of ‘em for all my brushes. Like you, I’ve all my brushes in 2, sometimes 3 cylinders… way too many for this envelope. :/

Wonder if they make double sided or extra large ones?? ;)

I have to go check — I can’t remember whether Chantal’s is double-sided because I tried to stay away from it! Kept telling myself, No! You don’t need it! But because I couldn’t stop thinking about it, I did a post. And now it’s official. I have to go to Curry’s. Plus Adam, the fellow who answered my email, says they carry various sizes of this case…

I have really big brush handles like the Sigma face ones. Where would those fit
And where did you put your scissors and that big powder brush
It looks like in the picture ther is a open flap behind the cyclinders
