Favorite Brushes of 2010

At the moment, I do not have a collection of expensive brushes but these have worked beautifully for me and most of them were very affordable without sacrificing quality.

1. ELF Studio Line Powder brush. Cheap, decent quality for the price, soft, synthetic bristles, perfect for liquid foundation and blends like a dream for a soft-focused air brushed finish.
2. Kabuki brush I bought at Target for $5.00. I don't think it's available anymore but this beats my Sigma F45. It's super soft. Never shed on me once.
3. Blush brush from Wal-Mart. Definitely need to check this out if you haven't already. This is so soft and affordable.
4. MAC 217 blending brush. This was a gift from my boy-friend. I love this brush. It does a beautiful job for blending eyeshadows. This is a must have. I don't know any cheaper dupes for this except the Sigma E25.
5. Sigma shading brush E55. This is one of the brushes from Sigma I actually like. They are not all that great like many people claim. I find some hits and misses depending on the brush. This one is definitely a hit. It's densely packed and yet soft. The size is perfect. Minimal shedding.
6. Sephora Professionnel cream eyeshadow brush. Another great brush for applying eyeshadow. It also works well as a blending brush.
7. Face Secrets small shading brush. This can be found at Sally Beauty Supply stores. Great for applying eyeshadows on the lid, crease, and outter V.
8. This small flat rounded tip brush is from Sonia Kashuk. I prefer this type of brush for applying eyeliner. It gives me more control.
9. I had to add this brush cleanser from MAC as my favorite. It's one of the best brush cleanser I've tried and works great for spot cleaning. The packing is not so friendly so you will need another spray bottle to pour this in.


  1. Nice brushes. A girl can never have too many brushes! I use to use the MAC brush cleaner too. Decided to start making my own cleaner so I don't buy it anymore. But I agree, I wished they had it in a better packaging.

  2. Thanks! I'll have to check some of these brushes out. I like that you love using cheap to expensive brushes.

  4. Sue, the majority of the time, I purchase high-end products only if I can't find a comparable product for less
