129 is for blush and powder.
219 is to use on eyes on the lashline and crease.
316 is for lips or to put eyeliner.

Let me give a shout out to Essence of Beauty brushes from CVS and other drugstores. They are pretty soft and very durable. I have a blush brush and there was no shedding and I've had it for 2 years now.

flutterbugly, were the SHU brushes cheaper at the airport than in regular stores?? i'm at the taiwan airport a lot and am in the market for some proper brushes so if they're cheap then maybe i should be all over it!

also, what kind of brushes should be in a good set? i'm new to the make up brushes thing (i only use 3--powder brush, the MAC tiny flat eyeliner brush, and a drugstore eyeshadow brush) and need some help in creating a good "starter kit" for myself before diving into the more 'complicated' ones. any suggestions? thanks guys

I love Lola's brow brush for drawing a line on my eyelids (with eyeshadow).

I think the Holiday sets MAC has out right now are an awesome way to start a makeup brush collection. You get like 5 brushes for under $50. There are different sets, like one for the face and one for the eyes.

Some people think the quality of the smaller brushes isn't as good as the larger brushes but I think if you are just starting out a collection, they'll be wonderful.

I need a recommendation for a good angle brush. That can double for shadow and brows. At the moment it's between Smashbox Angle Brow Brush 12 or MAC #266. Any thoughts or a different suggestion.

I would suggest Stila # 20 brush. It is double sided, with an angel brush and more of a pointed brush so it can be used for both eyes & eyebrow.

Makeup Brushes, All about
Lately I've been faced with the challenge of starting myself a good, solid makeup brush collection. There are so many brands of variable quality and price range, and I wonder which ones are going to give me what I need in terms of quality and usage without hurting my wallet.

So, which brands do you use and would recommend? What does your basic makeup brush set consist of?

If you can get the M·A·C PRO Membership Card you can get them for 40% off (each brush) which I think i great because from what I understand they are hand made, I have a great set and they are pretty good.

^Thanks for the merge, Hanne. I actually did search for an existing thread but nothing turned out. The search system on tFS is a little bit cuckoo.

Does any of you has Bourjois Pinceau Poudre? I got it today to use with my mineral foundations. I chose this one over other brands' because of the good reviews on Makeup Alley and because it does seem like a very good brush. It's so soft and yet so robust, perfect for powder foundations.

Is this worth the price? About 30 $ I guess.

I.D concealer brush.
