I wanted to share with you my first ever Makeup Brush Set which i got on Ebay. I searched for MAC Makeup Brushes and a picture of 24 authentic MAClike brushes popped up. I got really excited. I don't know much about "quality" of brushes so i just kinda thought i get it since it was only $25 bucks for 24 brushes including a leather pouch. When i got it, i noticed that the bristles were somewhat not as soft as my POSH brushes (I got my Posh brushes at k-mart and they are really really good) and i noticed that the MAC logo were like already faded but they were brand new. I could tell cuz of the smell and look of it. So i tried the brushes with some of my eyeshadows and it actually held up ok. The orginial MAC brushes would be wayy better. But remember now i got this set for $25 bucks for 24 brushes. So it's a pretty good deal.(i think) Also, If you noticed on my picture on my brushes it has little hello kitty faces. Well i just taped it on there with the numbers of the similar brushes from MAC just so i know which brush i used for my Makeup Tutorials. Overall i would rate these brushes like a 7 outta 10. I mean they work ok. Meaning they can apply makeup so yeah give it a try.
