What is everyone's favorite makeup brushes that are reasonably priced? Has anyone found any that are comparable to MAC? If so, which ones (#'s and brands?) Also, are there various brands that you use different brushes from?

I have several brushes-- Revlon Professional (found these at Sally's), Philosophy, Body Shop and EDM sent me some free brushes with my order. I also have some cheap ELF brushes and brushes I got from bath and Body Works years ago.

Any suggestions would be mucho appreciated!

Warmly,

Brandi

Try your local craft stores like Michael's. Many people have been raving about the Loew Cornell Maxinne's Mop (white bristles) brushes.

Sonia Kashuk has a really nice eye blending brush, very light and fluffy feel. And Essence of Beauty has great brushes: foundation, blush, kabuki, etc.

I have found some Sephora brush sets that are very reasonably priced, when you work it out to price per brush.

The Body Shop are very good brushes because they're made of synthetic hairs that are extremely soft to the touch. Lumiere Minerals Cosmetics offers a large choice of brushes, in matter of shape and size, and are heavenly soft to the touche too :))

I like the brushes at Poshbrushes.com. I just recently bought some and they are amazing! So soft and good like Mac brushes. Right now their offering 50% off their brushes if you use a code (I posted it under the coupons, etc forum). And they give free shipping if you spend more than $17 I believe. I bought 5 brushes for $20. Amazing and I got free shipping!

Most of my brushes are from the body shop. They are so soft and I've washed them many times and they are still as great as when I bought them. I highly recommend them because they are just as good as any high end department store brushes, but much cheaper.

I love synthetic brushes (for face, as they are super soft) and I use brushes I bought from Target for eyes.

I like Sonia Kashuk but find that the bristles stay on my face after using a few times. I like Bare Escentual's brushes.

I love my synthetic brushes from Forever Female. These brushes are often resold by MMU companies.

My first set of brushes were the Essene of Beauty brushes from CVS and they are wonderful for the price. Since then I've accumulated other brushes from all over; MAC, Smashbox, Sephora, Everyday Minerals and Mally. I have to say that my MAC brushes are outstanding and I can really see the difference they make with blending and color compared to my other brushes.

I don't need any new brushes at the moment, but I think eventually and over time, I'll end up replacing all of my brushes with MAC brushes.

I have been wanting to try Smashbox's brushes..

But I think Sonia Kushuks (Spelling?) brushes are a cheaper, more affordable option..

Her brushes are available at Target!
