i tried blush & foundation brushes from sephora as well as few eye shadow brushes.
they were OK. founation & blush were about $16 each? i know Trish Mcevoy brushes
are good, shisheido and shu eumura also, but more expensive (Trish is like $30 and shu in the same range)
i'm not a fan of using brushes for anything except blush/bronzer, because i'm too lazy to clean
them also, i like sephora's because they're small.

if you've got the moola, i say go for MAC & Versace for eyes, they're just about the best makeup brushes i've tried as yet. BeneFit also has some nice eye brushes.

concealer & liner --> MAC
eyeshadow --> versace
eyeshadow spongetip --> makeup forever
blush --> bobby brown

If you're in nyc- I know many professionals use Alcone brushes...

I personally love shu uemura brushes... although the mini set is good for on the go. But I still travel with the full size brushes...

I have a Sephora blush brush... it works fine but buying good brushes would insure a purchase for at least 10 years... my friend's brushes have held up that long!

I'm also looking for recommendations for brushes. I need a foundation and a concealer brush. I want good quality, but not the $100 brushes.

Thanks

I'm going to second the MAC recommendation. I've tried many many brushes, but have found MAC to be the best. It helps of course that I get an employee discount, but I wouldnt use them if I didnt like them!!
