a normal person has and she swears she needs every single one. I have a decent amount of brushes myself but being around her got me itching to pick up a few more, especially since I just
bought the Real Techniques Bold Metals complexion set. (The highlighting brush that comes in that set blows my old E.L.F. one out of the water! It makes such a huge difference.)
So, we went shopping and ended up at Marshall's. They actually carry a ton of high-end makeup at discounted prices-we saw a bunch of M.A.C. and Too Faced lippies!
Nothing much caught my eye, until I came across these gorgeous brushes!
They actually did not come in a set but they practically match! I ended up with seven new brushes with unicorn horn handles and I'm going to tell you where to get them!
These three brushes from Cala came in a set for $9.99-a powder brush, a foundation brush and a blush brush. The collection is called "Enchanted Glam" and and while I did see them listed on the calaproduct.com website, I believe you have to email them for order information.
These four came in a set with a powder brush, fluffy eyeshadow brush, concealer brush and brow/liner brush for $7.99. They're from a brand called Color Rush and they are available online at tillys.com but they're slightly more expensive at $14.99.
UPDATE: A set of these same brushes can be purchased on the Charlotte Russe for $14.99. However, it includes a blush brush instead of an angled liner brush.
If you can't find these brushes on either website, give your local Marshall's a try. It's a long shot since they never carry exactly the same things but it's worth a shot!
All of the brushes are of similar quality; probably about as good as the E.L.F. studio brushes, so they're best for quick touch ups and every day makeup. They're not high end quality but I'll be honest here; I bought these brushes mainly because they're gorgeous and for little known names the quality is pretty good!
What do you guys think? Would you buy these? What other unicorn brushes have you seen?
