Yesterday, when I stopped by Target for some lunch, I got lucky! Most (or all?) of the products from the Spring collection were plastered with clearance stickers featuring amazing markdowns. I quickly checked for the Gold Mine set (7 piece brush set) but it was gone. I left with the Small Treasure set (4 piece brush set) without even fully knowing if I wanted it.
Later on, I visited another Target and found three Gold Mine sets left! I was ecstatic. =) I picked up one and left feeling pretty darn happy and accomplished. I'll test these out during the next few weeks but from what I can tell, these brushes feel fairly soft and look nice for the price. We'll see how they hold up though. As far as online Target reviews go, the Gold Mine set has a 5 star rating.
Gold Mine Set ($17.48 from $24.99)
Small Treasure Set ($10.48 from $14.99)
