    nothing too expensive tho' :blush: i dont wear enough make up to justify the need for $ 200 powder brush.....

    i need :
    eye shadow
    blush

    i tried blush & foundation brushes from sephora as well as few eye shadow brushes.
    they were OK. founation & blush were about $16 each? :unsure: 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 :innocent: 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!!

    :wub:

    Sorry late reply. I'm in Korea and no they're not cheaper here. They're an import so subject to tax/duty. Cheaper in the US or Europe. :angry:

    sorry to have to butt in here but I am a big big fan of Shu brushes but I wouldnt recommend the mini brush set they have simply because it is impractical and difficult to use.

    I'd rather spend a bit more money to get something of excellent quality rather than purchasing something which really isnt worth its value
