    Includes powder, blush, foundation, bronzer, eye shadow, concealer, and contour brushes.

    Promising Review: "The brushes are very soft, durable, and easy to hold, despite the gemstone-like handle. Makeup goes on very smooth and due to the smooth nature, it's easy to build up your makeup. I have sensitive skin, and the bristles didn't irritate my skin. They are simply gorgeous and are easy to clean, as well!" –Krissy!

    Price: $11.99

    2. Cruelty-free synthetic brushes perfect for your caring heart. Even animal rights activists deserve to look amazing.

    Includes powder, blush, foundation, bronzer, eye shadow, concealer, and contour brushes.

    Promising Review: "Wow! I have never purchased nice brushes before because I pretty much assumed I was fine without them, but these brushes are AMAZING. They are so soft, but stiff enough to apply makeup beautifully. Speaking of beautiful, not only was the travel case gorgeous, but the brushes were, too! Being a vegan, it makes me feel so great to know I can trust Shany to supply me with high quality, affordable, AND PETA-approved cruelty-free products." –earl-lover

    Price: $17.99

    3. Kabuki brushes that you KNOW will blend your foundation, blush, and highlighter in just the way you want it.

    Includes flat, round, angled, and tapered brushes.

    Promising Review: "Soft, easy to clean, and versatile. They work best with liquids and creams, but also work nicely with powder and a semi-damp brush. They are comparable to Sigma brushes in quality, but definitely more affordable." –Regina

    Price: $26.95.

    4. Golden fishtail foundation brushes to fabulously apply liquid, powder, AND cream makeup because they're beautiful and versatile, like you!,

    Includes four brushes with different brush head shapes.

    Promising Review: "These are actually pretty amazing. I use them for blush and bronzer. The brush hairs are actually really soft – they're not overly firm or inflexible. They're soft like makeup brushes should be. If you ran your thumb across, it feels really smooth, and the fibers move naturally below your touch." –Stevie

    Price: $6.79+

    5. A magical rainbow brush set. It's silky smooth to the touch, which is great for all the beautiful babes with sensitive skin.

    Includes powder, foundation, concealer, eyebrow, highlighter, eyeshadow, and blending brushes.

    Promising Review: "I am a makeup and makeup brush junkie, so naturally I had to have these pretty brushes if only for decoration in my bathroom. But after reading the reviews, I thought, 'Hey! They sound functional, too!' And boy, was I right! Not only are they gorgeous, but these are by far the best brushes I own! I absolutely love them! I have never had a single brush that picks up and disperses product like these. Not only are they amazing, but they are ultra soft, and did I mention beautiful?" –Liamidas

    Price: $18.99

    6. Unicorn powder brushesβ€” definitely great for putting on lightweight, crumbly mineral foundations.

    Includes small flat oblique, small fan-shaped, curved eye shadow, oval eye shadow, long eye shadow, angled, foundation, medium powder, and large powder brushes.

    Promising Review: "GORGEOUS brushes. Like, so pretty! The photos just don't do these brushes justice. Aside from their aesthetic beauty, they're actually really quality brushes for the price! I've owned several cheaper and more expensive makeup brush sets in the past, and these rank among some of my favorites. The brushes are a little big, but are super soft and make blending out various pigments a dream. As a bonus, you receive one of these super trendy silicone sponges, and a brush egg for cleaning your brushes. I've been wanting to try out these silicone sponges for a while now, so it was a great addition. I really enjoyed applying and blending out my foundation, concealer, highlighter, and concealer with it. I haven't gotten a chance to check out the brush egg too much just yet, but it was great for removing excess eye shadow, and I hear it works as a washboard for your brushes while cleaning them." –L. Seiber

    Price: $13.99

    7. Some non-porous eye brushes that are a perfect dupe for expensive-ass Sigma brushes! You can wash these repeatedly and they won't fray or loose their shape!

    Includes eyeshadow, eyeliner, blending, shader, detailer and pencil brushes.

    Promising Review: "I bought these as a present to myself and absolutely love them! They are very similar to my Sigma brushes, but inexpensive. I used these for almost a month straight and they worked perfectly. I did some traveling and didn't want to worry about ruining my expensive ones, so I just brought these. They were surprisingly good, and even now I reach for them over my Sigma brushes. I have washed them a couple of times now and they are still amazing. They are really soft and don't irritate my eyes!" –Kaci Hill

    Price: $12.95

The brushes were pleasantly soft, packed pigment, and blended beautifully!" –Cheyenne A.
