Makeup Brushes


Do you think it is just worth it to get an expensive make up brush? I rarely wash my brushes, that's why I like to buy inexpensive ones that I can just replace, but most of the cheap ones are just that--cheap. Right now I am looking for a large powder brush that doesn't "shed" its bristles everywhere like the cheap one I have currently, what are your recommendations (cheap or expensive)?

Eco Tools

I've been buying only Eco Tools brushes and I've been very happy with them. They're pretty inexpensive, usually around $10 or less each. I LOVE the blending and the blush brush. I think it's important to buy good quality brushes, but I don't think it's necessary that they are expensive. Also, try looking in art stores for paint brushes. They're less expensive and usually pretty great quality.

Keep in mind: I think it's also important in your search, to look for useful brushes that have specific qualities like a tapered blush brush for instance!

@ Alex JC

I agree with AlexJC on this one. I have heard some amazing reviews on Eco Tools brushes, and have personally used a couple of them - and loved them. Inexpensive, good quality.

It depends on how often you use them, I suppose.

I only ever really use 4 brushes... face: powder brush, blush brush, eyes: smudge brush and blending/crease brush.

So for me it was worth it to spend a little more and get good quality brushes, because I only use a select few. All mine are Jane Iredale ones (The Handi is my favourite...it's tiny, great for mineral makeup pressed powder, bronzer, and blush too...it's awesome haha) and i've had them for about 4 years and they're still in great condition (I give them a bath about once a month).

I used to buy cheap ones, but they never worked well and would shed and made my makeup look pretty bad...either they wouldn't work or i'd just be wasting product, so I decided to shell out some dollars for good quality. And they've definitely gotten their use worth!

Eco Tools

I'd second on the eco-tools suggestions. This is my main brush set and I have purchased a big blush brush from them. It's perfect, I've been using it for a year and a half. It's still intact, doesn't shed, and has a sturdy handle.
