Makeup Brushes real vs artificial

on Feb 17, 2012 @ 03:30 am

Hi Ladies,

I'm looking to buy a good blush brush that is going to last me. I now want to invest in the best blush brush because I'm sick of the bristles coming off, which happens with the mac brushes. Not interested in those anymore. A girlfriend suggested Bobbi Brown makeup brushes.

I'm also debating between real vs fake brushes.

Please give me your input of the best blush brush out there. I also use it for bronzer.

I have a set of brushes from The Body Shop and I really like them. They are not the most expensive or highest end, but they have been good for me!

Once upon a time MAC had great brushes, not anymore though. The bristles get too hard over time, shed, and really who wants that when we pay $40 a brush?

I really like the Sephora synthetic brushes. For blush, bronzing and contouring I especially like their angled brush. You can read my review on it here

I dropped by Winners the other day and picked up a brush set for $20. I thought it'd be an "okay" set and I can shove the brushes in my bag and not feel bad about ruining expensive bristles. Let me tell you, the brush set is amazing! The brushes are super soft, dense, don't shed at all and really do the same job as their high end sisters. I wish I knew the name of them off the top of my head but I don't. I'll try to remember to look see once I get home and post back with the name.

I love the e.l.f. Studio Line brushes. The blush brush is fantastic and doesn't shed. You can buy them for $3 at, but I've also seen their 11 piece brush set at Winners for about $25 (I bought one and all the brushes are great!) The bristles are made of taklon and are very soft.

ecoTools also has great brushes, which are also made of soft, synthetic fibers. Very inexpensive too (you can get them at Walmart and Superstore).
