I agree, makeup brushes can be ridiculously expensive, and it's hard to justify to yourself spending $30 on a stick with some hair on the end (at least that's how I see it!).
A really good makeup brush line is Real Techniques. It's very popular and not very expensive at all. I think you can find them at Walmart actually! They are really good, seem high quality, and they have a nice design. They are created by these two makeup artist sisters on YouTube with 1.8 million followers, so I think they've got to be quite good!
Here are a couple of reviews:

I've had really good luck with Eco Tools Brushes. They are inexpensive and fairly good quality for the money. I've included the link below to their website to give you an idea of the range and prices. They don't ship to Canada off the website but you can find them at your local Shopper's Drugmart!

If you're not an advanced make up artist and are looking for a basic set of brushes to get the job done, the Eco Tools are a great value / works great ! They can be found at Walmart.
MAC also has seasonal brush kits / sets that are cheaper than buying each individual brush alone

Every year on boxing day I go to Shoppers Drug Mart and get the Quo brush set. There is a full brush kit with 8- 10 brushes in it and on boxing day they are 50% off they are usually around $50 but after Christmas they are around $20-$25 for the set. I like those brushes but you have to wash them before you use them so that they don't shed.
I also really like the brushes from Sigma Beauty. http://www.sigmabeauty.com/
They are amazing and reasonable prices. For a whole set is around $100 but for individual brushes they are around $20 each. Which is cheaper than Sephora and some other places.

I started out with a set of MAC brushes but none have really lasted. It's hard to justify spending so much money on brushes that will only fall apart at the barrel or have hairs that will shed after a couple of washes. It's as if manufacturers aren't even putting any effort in it. Just GLUE the damn thing better, for goodness sake!
Once you master the technique, the brushes itself starts to matter a little less. Continually investing in expensive brushes is really not worth it. Eco Tools (https://www.ecotools.com/) brushes wash well, pick up color nicely and don't shed. And best of all, this wallet-friendly line of brushes will not break the bank. I'd suggest giving that a try. Otherwise, the ELF Studio (http://www.eyeslipsface.com/studio/tools/brush-sets/11_piece_brush_collection) brushes are also decent.
