I am lusting after the Bobbi Brown ones but can't afford a full set. Are there any cheaper ones that are good or is it worth me saving up for BB one at a time?

I actually like the no.7 ones... And they're very cheap.

Ruby and Millie ones from Boots are good value.

Ruby and millie ones are good, but I got alot last year because they were selling them at 75% off because they were discontinuing the range might be able to find some still in boots? not sure.

I love my Mac brushes but they cost a fortune so I usually get one every couple of months I have about 8 now and they are good quality.

Generally with brushes you do get what you pay for, a good quality brush is an investment but will last you years if you take care of it. (Some of my MAC ones are a decade old now and still fine!)

ELF's Studio range of brushes are only a couple of quid each, some are good and some not so good, but in general they are excellent value. Personally I like the Eyeshadow C brush, flat top powder brush, complexion brush, angled brush and blush brush.

I like the bodyshop ones.

LadyEmmaHamilton · 24/01/2012 20:58

Second the Body Shop ones. Soooo soft and good size handles.

shesparkles · 24/01/2012 20:58

I'd second the eyes lips face ones, especially the complexion and blusher brushes
Body Shop eyeshadow blender brushes are THE best in my opinion

Thanks very much, I'll have a look at all of those :)

Royal & Langnickel Pro Silk brushes. You can get them on Amazon. They do great deals on sets and they are very good quality.

I have a mixture of Bobbi Brown, Bodyshop and Ecotools. The Ecotools are from Boots and are relatively cheap, but for the money seem quite good.

Bobbi Brown sometimes do sets of mini brushes which are nice, at least I like the set I have and it's so much better than the tiny brushes that come in most make-up compacts.
