Bargain Budget Makeup Brushes

BareMinerals Perfecting Face Brush Dupe

NARS COSMETICS APPLICATORS KABUKI ARTISAN BRUSH DUPE

MAC 187 Duo Fibre Brush Dupe

I don't tend to buy cheap makeup brushes as i don't think the quality is as good as a higher end brush. That being said i have purchased quite a few brushes from ebay and found some amazing Budget Makeup Brushes. Yes that being said some of them were bad quality so i never used them again. I have found four brushes which deserve a mention as they are amazing and incredible dupes for some higher end makeup brushes.

The first brush to mention is a dupe for the Bare Minerals Perfecting Face Brush. As you can see in my photos the brush is unlike any other as it has a small hole in the middle which is where you put your foundation. One thing that impressed me about this brush is that it applied foundation perfectly and the brush doesn't soak up product like most brushes so you are left with a clean looking brush even after application. The brush only costs £0.99 which is a bargain! 


Next up is a brush which looks very much similar to the Nars Kabuki Artisan Brush. At first i wasn't sure if i liked this brush but now i love it. I use it mainly for blusher and it works perfectly. You can order this one in black or cream. The best bit is it only costs £1.02


I am a MAC addict, i own alot of the makeup but none of the brushes. I used my friends MAC 187 Duo Fibre brush and loved it. I had already ordered this one from Ebay and i have to say it is actually amazing quality! I use this for powder or bronzer and it blends powder products really well and again it only costs a whopping £1.65


Lastly is my favourite of the bunch. It is a dupe of the Nars Kabuki Ita Contour brush. If you love to contour you need this baby in your life! It contours perfectly looking flawless, i couldn't imagine contouring with anything else! And the cost is... £1.84 yes that's right its cheap.

  15. Other than the MAC eye brushes I'm not that impressed with quality because so many of the hairs drop out when you use them so your cheaper alternatives are probably better!

  21. Love the look of that NARS dupe! And I have the bareMinerals brush with the 'hole' (is that the right word?) in it and I actually don't like it that much I think it comes off looking a bit streaky :(
