I love MAC brushes, they are the absolute best IMO but I've been very tempted to try Shu. I've heard great things. Stila also has some very nice brushes. I used to use them before I switched over to MAC.

Some Prescriptives brushes are ok but others aren't so great. The powder brush isn't soft enough IMO. I like my powder brush to be very soft.

Also, I was considering maybe a cheaper brush like LORAC. Has anyone used and liked them?

I don't know if you can get this shipped to Canada, but Shu Uemura online has them. I have the brush set, and I highly recommend these brushes!

Hey, thanks!!! Yes they do ship to Canada and the brush set (the cheaper one ) looks perfect. I just hope that I am not hit with custom duties by ordering online. I'll check it out.

In Toronto i'd recommend:
- brushes by Quo (see Shopper's Drug Mart)
- Cover FX brushes
- MAC of course

- Sephora --- i haven't tried theirs but looks good
- ditto for: Lisa Watier
- Japonesque i've tried - good brush but for me was pricey.

i have the prescriptives foundation brush for 8 years now and it still works as good as new. in pics i can tell my skin is much more even and beautiful when i use the brush to put on my foundation than when i used my fingers. and the brush allows you to "paint" yourface and not miss spots at all while using less foundation than you would with your fingers.
its $32..just make sure you keep it clean, i clean my brushes once a week with alcohol.

I broke down and spent some money on some MAC brushes instead of Shu Emura (too complicated to get and way too expensive) and also, I already have some brushes from MAC and LOVE them.

To answer the question above - I have the MAC foundation brush and I don't know if anyone would disagree that it's absolutely the best!! Money well spent.

I wanted a new powder brush so I picked up the new Catherine Deneuve limited edition over the traditional long handle brush - and it's gorgeous!

Overall MAC is one of the best brands for make-up tools.

I have sephora make up brushes right now but plan to get new ones soon since I've had these for years. I'm so confused on weather I should get mac or Shu...

I just happened to have a bottle of baby smapoo around and I wanted to use that up first! I also picked up a tip from kevyn aucoin to put conditioner on your brushes to keep them soft. ^^

Keep using baby shampoo!

Brush cleansers are usually products to use without water (for instance when you are doing makeup for several people and can´t use water).
the shampoo is deeper cleansing and i am pretty sure that is better than products to clean water free!
