Looking into buying a set of brand new makeup brushes and wondering what the best ones were for the best price? I dont really need the sets that have 25+ brushes, I'm not that advanced.

You can try the ELF set. My sister got it for me for Christmas/my birthday last year. I haven't used all the brushes but it's nice to know that I have them in case I do need them. IMO they're pretty good but I feel like such a n00b when it comes to brushes.

I've herd very good things about Sigma brushes, that they are better than the sedona lace but not that expensive like the mac ones. I think I will give them a try. They also have a travel kit that is more economic. I think the Mac and Sephora brushes are tooooo expensive to get them. Also ecotools brushes work good.

I fully believe that a lot of the more affordable brushes are just as good as the high end ones. I used to have a mix of Sigma and MAC brushes, and I lost my entire bag of them on a trip out of town. I'm on a tight budget, so replacing them right away wasn't an option. I got a set of Sonia Kashuk brushes and a few of the cheapies from ELF, and to be honest with you, I am still using them and I'm fine with it. If I didn't know how little I paid for them, I probably would hardly know the difference!
I also have a few Raw Natural Beauty brushes, and I think the full coverage foundation brush and the all over eye brush are two of my favorites I've ever had. These are a bit pricier than the ones I mentioned, though.

One brand I found that really surprises me is Real Techniques. I got mine at Ulta. I have 2 from that line and they are my favorites so far. They do make sets also but, again, I had pretty much narrowed down what I wanted and the set wasn't it. If you do need a set to play around with, the Eco Tools are reasonable and work pretty well. You can also get E.L.F. brushes for between $1 and $3 at Target if you need to try a bunch to see which shapes you prefer.
I LOVE the Real Technique brushes. I have the blush brush, powder brush and expert face brush that I've been using for about 2 1/2 months and I really like them. I haven't seen much shedding and they blend beautifully. On Saturday, I purchased the stipple brush and core collection. Ulta had a buy one get one 50% off sale so I took advantage of it!

I have tons and tons of brushes. But, when I wanted to start wearing liquid foundation (after 18 years) I wanted a really nice foundation brush. I found one at Sephora and it is from their airbrush line. I fell in love with it so much that I went ahead and purchased the 5 brush kit for $65. So worth it! These brushes are the best I have ever used. Soooo soft.

My favourite brushes are from Japonesque. However, a more affordable option is a brush belt with about twelve brushes including foundation and stiple (my most used brushes) from Bodyography...find them online. Great price and good quality. But if you can afford the investment, then do go for Japonesque!
