^Exactly, the perfect brushes that I'll actually use. I ended up not getting it because I already have the actual Goat face brush, and I've tried the cheek brush and don't like it so much. I thought I might as well just go ahead and purchase a separate eyeshadow and lip brush!

The Girogio Armani foundation brush is a dream to use.

a few days ago i was given the chanel foundation brush as a gift but i was impulsive and insisted that i return it to spend the 40 dollars it costed on a few mac lipsticks. foolish, i know, but i had only really heard about the mac and louise foundation brushes... didn't want to use it in case i didn't like it. now i'm reading up about it on makeupalley.com and i'm regretful because it seems everyone loves it. tis what i get i suppose.

anyone else here tried it/loved it?

I'm a beauty junkie. Here are my favorites
Foundation - MAC 187, Sephora Airbrush #55, Beauty Blender sponge. They can also be used for blush, bronzers, powders, etc.
Concealer - any flat synthetic brush will do. I only use the brush to transfer the product and pat lightly with my ring finger.
Blush - Trish McEvoy Sheer Blush brush, MAC 168
Bronzer - Sephora Bronzer Brush #44

^^ My pleasure! As previously stated, the foundation brushes recommended are very versatile in that they can also be used for blush, bronzers, etc. The suggested brushes are quite pricey, but they really are good investments. They are of very good quality and last for years with proper care!

I have to say that I think that when it comes to brushes you pay for what you get? I have some really cheap ones from Sephora and the Body shop and they're not super duper good..

While you do get what you pay for to some extent, at a certain point what you get is a brand stamped of the handle. Coastal scents has some (for the price, very) good brushes. Great when one needs a bunch at once (like when I started doing proper eye makeup) and doesn't want to drop big bucks at MAC.

Can anyone recommend a good smudge brush for eyeliner? I'm not really an expert with makeup brushes and it seems MAC is popular but I couldn't see anything on their site that would be suitable for something as heavy as eyeliner

Thanks a lot! I'll give them a try! They don't seem to cost as much as some brushes I've been looking a lately and if these are really as good, then it's bargin!

I just ordered a MAC brush set for €30. Am in love with the #187!
