Default Found a very good line of brushes at Walgreens

They are called Perfection and they have 100% natural bristle brushes. I bought a Kabuki brush because I didn't like the one I got from B.E. and it is great! Nice, even application and the bristles are oh so soft. Best of all it was only $4.99! I am going to buy more brushes for blush, eyeshadow, etc.

Here's a link to their line. The Kabuki brush is not online for some reason

I noticed some natural bristle brushes at Albertson's as well but haven't tried them. I prefer natural bristles.

Is this the kabuki brush you have? brush
So they are natural bristles? I'll have to check that out.

I need to buy a few more eye shadow brushes and can't stand to pay $30/brush. Are these really soft?

They are not as soft as the Sonia Kashuk brushes at Target, but they are still much softer then artificial bristle brushes.

I was at Walgreens the other day, all their brushes are on sale, buy one get one free of equal or lesser value!

How are the Sonia Kashuk brushes priced compared to these? I bought a Japonesque eye shadow brush which I adore, but don't want to spend that much again for brushes really.

Well, I like the Sonia brushes better now that I have used them awhile(though I do like this line as well).

Sonia Kashuk at Target

I think they cost about the same, but they do feel a bit softer. The travel size brushes are less expensive, they just have shorter handles(which I prefer).

Do they have a kabuki? I don't see it online. How much is it? TIA!

I don't think they sell a kabuki by itself, but they do sell it as part of a set

ah, I don't need the powder so I'll probably have to settle for the walgreen's. Is there that much difference? I still haven't even ordered my everyday minerals samples yet, but I want to have a kabuki to try them out. (still deciding on colors)

I haven't used the Sonia kabuki brush, so I am not sure how they compare.

ok thanks! jeepcurlygirl mentioned she uses puffs to apply her mineral makeup, so I may try that or use a large powder brush I already have.

I would think a powder brush would work just fine
