At first I thought there was no way in tarnations that I wasn't going to pay that much for brushes. I could find them cheaper elsewhere but once I tried them I knew I had to splurge. I believe that these brushes do all my work for me and make it so easy to apply and change up looks. They are so soft and I cant say enough great things about them.
These are the ones I currently have:
I also noticed that you get far more intense colour when applying your eye shadow with this brush, as apposed to using a fluffy eye brush or those horrid applicators that you get with most eye shadows – why they even use those I will never know!
Both the 239 and the 217 brushes work together beautifully to create perfectly blended eye lids. Use the 239 brush to apply your darker shade of eye shadow to the lid, and then use the M.A.C 217 Blending Brush to blend the colour, giving it a nice, flawless finish.
If you generally only apply one shade of eye shadow to your lids lids, then the M.A.C 217 Blending Brush is all you need. The brush has fine, densely packed fibers that are arranged in an oval shape.
MAC 224 I use this brush for an all over sweep of shadow or to dust a highlight under the brow and especially for blending my eyeshadow. I think this is the best blending brush I have came across. It is so soft and make my blending effortlessly. I cant live without my MAC eye brushes.
MAC 187 This brush I'm using for my blush brush and it is so soft and glides across my cheeks. You can use it by swirling it up my cheek bones and doesn't streak of leave darker spots it smooths and applies evenly. This brush is a bigger brush that what I'm used to and thought I would look like a clown but to my surprise it is just right. It is a more expensive brush but well worth the investment especially that I know it is high quality made and will last a long time.
MAC 109 I use this brush for my minerals powder. I normally use a powder sponge so this is new for me but I will say that I use less powder with a brush than a sponge. So I feel like the money I'm saving on the powder I bought a brush with it. It is a great blending brush also use it for a contouring brush.
I will say that before this brush I wore foundation and powder because I felt powder alone wasnt enough coverage but usuing this brush I no longer wear foundation. So I splurged with this brush but saving on money for foundation.
With these eye brushes I truly believe that you could make all of the looks happen with ease
What is your favorite brush or brushes?
I also heard that the e.l.f. brushes are exactly like the MAC brushes so I while I was at my beloved Target I picked up a few and I will admit that I think elf brushes are great and def up to par with MAC and Sephora brushes. The Bonus elf brushes is the cheap price. I love a good deal or bargain.
