High End Makeup Brushes Dupes!

Hey Gals,

Are you one of those who love makeup brushes, but think they are too expensive? Well, read on to find out about high end makeup brushes dupes 🙂

Before i start this post, please note that I am in no way trying to demean any high end makeup brushes brand. They are awesome and owning them is every girl’s pride. Their quality is not questionable at all. This post is more about finding an affordable option to these high end makeup brushes.

I simply love the below stated brushes but thought they were very expensive for my day-to-day makeup needs. Hence, thought of finding some dupes.

  • Round Kabuki Brush – This brush is mainly used for application of power products like pressed powder. (Sigma’s F82 – Round Kabuki –> 18$)
  • Flat Kabuki brush – As the name suggests, this brush is used for application of liquid/creamy foundation. (Sigma’s F80 – Flat Kabuki –> 18$)
  • Angled Kabuki brush – This brush is awesome for application of blush or bronzer (Sigma’s F84 – Angled Kabuki –> 18$)
  • Tapered Kabuki brush – This is a very good brush for contouring or applying foundation to corner areas around the nose and eyes. (Sigma’s F86 – Tapered Kabuki –> 18$)
  • Sigma also sells a combo pack of these four at 62$ (http://www.sigmabeauty.com/category_s/58.htm)

I checked locally for dupes but didn’t find any kabuki style brushes. They were more of normal bristle non-kabuki brushes. So, didn’t work for me as I specifically wanted kabuki brushes. Hence, moved on to search amazon and eBay for days and finally found the dupes i was looking for! They definitely do a good job if you want to use them for day-to-day makeup needs and gives you a happy feeling of using brushes similar to high end ones 😉

4 Makeup Brushes

Flat Kabuki Brush - for liquid & creamy foundation application

Tapered Kabuki - very good brush for contouring

Angled Kabuki - for blush & bronzer application

Round Kabuki - for powder application

Pros:

  • Goodquality synthetic brush bristles – very soft
  • Firmly held to the base – so helps in ease of application
  • 1 inch of brush length (as compared to Sigma which is more than 2 inches)
  • Black handle (you get white handle as well)
  • Looks are very similar to high end make up brushes.
  • Awesome price. I got 4 brushes for 22$ – whereas Sigma’s one brush is around 18$.

Cons:

  • Unbranded
  • Short length of bristles

In my opinion, though these are unbranded, they are definitely value for money. I was super impressed with the quality of these. I ordered these brushes from eBay (link provided below) and got the delivery from USA within a week’s time!! They were absolutely as per the description provided by the seller. I highly recommend this seller.

Seller Information –> http://myworld.ebay.com/i2cworld_inc3?_trksid=p2047675.l2559

So, no more feeling bad of not owning high end makeup brushes, we have a dupe now!
