    i don't own it and wouldn't buy it.

    i'm not big on makeup lines brushes - i like to get them at the craft store for 1/3 of the price!

    :D

    thank you!!!! i will certainly try the craft/paint store brushes. have you seen a brush that is slanted and similiar to the brush in the pic or are they all "regular" shapped??

    are the handles of makeup brushes usually longer than makeup brushes or about the same size?

    And to add to luvmylocs's questions, when you want a fluffy powder brush, can you find that at a craft store too? Do you just bite the bullet and buy one from a line like, oh, I dunno, MAC?
    OMG, LOOK!!

    ...It's a siggie. :shock:

    I got mine from the craft store too, and at least Sally's has cheaper ones than MAC, if you rather go there.

    i just want a good angled blush brush...i'll buy it from the craft store if i can. i do know if you get a really cheap brush the hairs come out quite frequently which is annoying and can make the bruhs less effective to use. i'm just not sure if craft stores have angled brushes.

    well i'm glad to say i went to the art supply store right by my job at lunch and i found and amazing brush that looks almost exactly like the mac brush (although it's not slanted but it is a little round on the top)....anyway it was less than $6 w/ tax incl!!!! it's a blend or natural and synthetic fibers and it is good on oil, acrylic and water. thanks rou!!!

    Awesome! Next time I go to the nearby shopping center I'll check out the arts supply store - although it will be a torturous time deciding which to use on canvas and which on skin (I love painting). :lol:
