Major Brush Envy

Saturday 7 August 2010

Lately I've been realising more and more how pivotal the correct use of makeup brushes can be when wanting the perfect makeup finish. When rifling through my makeup collection, I found I was severely lacking in the brushes I want need, and I've been geeking up and doing some research into the beautiful brushes I just have to buy.

Here are some of the brushes I've been lusting after recently...

ELF Studio Powder Brush- Grrrr, why will you not come back in stock?!?


ELF Studio Fan Brush

Sigma F40

Sigma F15

Sigma F25

and many many more...

Ahh envy really is a sin... for my purse ;)

Why do brushes have to be so expensive ehh!?

What are your favourite and most useful makeup brushes, any recommendations? :)


  1. I've been feeling the same, I have no good quality brushes, I also want the F15 and Elf's flat top brush! :D

  2. Good selection, I have the elf powder brush and love it, great for foundation, powder, blush, seriosuly it's awesome and such a bargain, lol.


  3. Ive just ordered some new brushes! I was slacking too haha,!

  4. I know exactly what you mean! Expesh with the sigma brushes I constantly go to buy but the price mounts up abit with the p&p! x

  5. Ahh i love the elf powder brush, I couldn't live without it now :) I hate how expensive most brushes are though cause there are so many I want as well! haha x

  6. Ehh i'm lusting over the 1st twoo brushes as well x3

  7. I love the Elf Powder brush! so amazing for applying liquid or powder!
    I WISH I could find somewhere to buy the sigma brushes from!xx

  8. The Elf Powder brush is amazing! I don't know what I'd do without it now! x

  9. I know what you mean. Really wish i could buy the whole of sigma or mac brushes id be the happiest girl around.

  10. The Elf powder brush is amazing for foundation!!! You should get it when it's back in stock! I want the fan brush too!
    The F40 is great....I have the #168 from MAC and it's practically the same! I would love the whole Sigma kit! Ahhh I just look at it every now and then and want it so badly!

  11. at least the elf brushes aren't expensive, but that's probably why they're always out of stock. too good and too cheap! everyone wants them.

  12. Sigma and MAC are always great brushes..

    Sigma is good for those who are on a budget.:D

  15. great post, I um now want them all too thanks for sharing :) x

  16. I really want the ElF brushes as well they seem so good and so inexpensive all at the same time :)

  17. I left something for you on my blog!

  18. I've been waiting for the elf powder brush to come back in stock for foreverrr!! I love sigma brushes, especially their eye brushes as most are excellent dupes of mac brushes without the hefty price tag!
