Which is why we were shocked to hear that MAC were making a pretty major change to their entire brush line. Use as a spoolie to apply mascara, utilise the spiralled synthetic bristles to separate lashes or even use it to groom the brows. Notify me of new posts by email.

I prefer my ecotools angled eyeliner brush. However, I've heard that MAC face brushes are a lot better than their eye brushes, so maybe that's why I love the Batgirl - I like my synthetic brushes a lot more though Why do you think they are crappy?
Just wondering, eheh Real animal hair brushes tend to shed damn my kabuki!!! Also, after washing, they retain their shape as if they're brand new, so I really like them a lot People might think I'm crazy, but buying oil-paint paint brushes would work just as well. I looked up what MAC brushes are made of, and you can find paint brushes in many different shapes and sizes for much cheaper but made of the saaaame material.
Paint brushes can be very, very, very soft too; I can almost guarantee you can find one just as good if not better than a MAC one and for less money. What's more is if they're for oil paints especially, they're meant to stand the test of time and intense usage oil paint has to be able to withstand being soaked in turpentine, so make-up is nothing compared to that.
So that would be my suggestion. Instead of dishing out so much when, really, you're just paying for a brand name, just head over to an art store and get a nice-quality paint brush for a better price.

Those brushes will outlive alot of different makeupbrushes you may buy that are cheaper. It's a good investment if you want good tools.
Like someone said, the brush is not only softer but picks up and applies makeup better. They say theres really no point in buying expensive makeup without having good brushing Theres like different levels of hair quality. Someone already said paintbrushes too!
I'm not crazy!
