    Foundation brushes not only do a better job than fingers of offerign even coverage, but they also use less foundation to get the job done. It makes your favourite foundation go a longggg way.

    I have a pack of Loreal make-up brushes. They're pretty good, super soft and portable.

    I usually use either art brushes, or drugstore cheapo brushes (usually about $4-5 each).

    I think they work well. I don't believe you need to spend a ton of money to look good.

    Synthetic bristles are really sometimes softer than natural ones. But some of the TBS brushes also have natural bristles, like pony hair.

    Don´t think that there is cruelty on the animals just because some of the brushes are made with animal hair. It´s just like cutting your hair- it doesn´t hurt either.

    Sonia Kashuk has the best blush brush, and it's super cheap at Target. Much better than my Bobbi Brown one.

    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.

    I was just at Holts this weekend and they told me that they do not sell Shu Umera :( I also checked out some of the speciality stores in Yorkville and no luck. Does anyone know where I can buy them in Toronto??

    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 :wink:) 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... :unsure:
