Natural hair brushes will absorb too much of creamy products and get all icky and gross. I went through that when I started using cream eye shadows, but I had been meaning to buy a set of sythetic brushes anyway. I buy my brushes from the art supply store because they're super cheap, great variety of shapes and sizes, and the same as brushes from MU brands.

i use the sephora brush for concealers since it's synthetic bristles and kind of cheaper than other brands. but you can find art store brushes that work the same way for cheaper.

You can find some decent taklon brushes at the art supply stores. Just find a shape and size you like...they're great for applying creams.

Welcome mtang!!! I'm Janelle, nice to meet you!

As for me, I'm a 99% art store brush user... they are awesome, and they work beautifully!


Nice haul Anna!!!! I'm sure you'll love them, and your new flip flops!!
