Affordable Dupes For MAC Brushes: (Dupes For 24 of MAC Brushes) Sigma Makeup Brushes and Crown Brush


As we all know that MAC brushes are considered to be the best brushes ever. But not all of us can afford the sky high prices. Ok! we get it that they are really really good but still they are just brushes and a simple thing like that shouldn't cost the earth. So for a long time I have been looking for the best dupes for the MAC brushes at affordable prices. Some times I do get annoyed when I have to buy individual brushes from different places especially online, because I just want to get all of them at once and in a single shipment. But when you go brush set hunting not all the brushes in the set are worth buying or there are brushes in the set that you dont really need. So here I am going to share with you guys the brushes I think to be the best affordable dupe for MAC brushes for half the price or less.

A lot of people have been raving about the Sigma brushes http://www.sigmabeauty.com/?Click=77233  and their similarity to MAC brushes. No doubt they are really great brushes and some of them are excellent dupes for the MAC ones for half the price.

The other cheaper alternative to the MAC brushes are the brushes by CrownBrush.co.uk, they have a wide variety and have more than 15 ranges of makeup brushes. I also stumbled across some MAC dupes while surfing through the CrownBrush website.

These brushes are affordable. You can check out these brushes at http://www.crownbrush.co.uk/. The prices on the website are excluding VAT but still the brushes are so cheap; some of them are even less than half the price of MAC.
The Sigma brushes are really good quality, a lot better than the Crown Brush quality and a definitely great value for money.
Here I have listed dupes for almost all the most used MAC brushes and the best thing is that you dont need to find and buy individual brushes, you can get all the dupes from any one of the websites and can order them together or get the brush kits. So when ever you plan to buy makeup brushes keep these above mentioned lists with you for referrence.

I do hope that you guys found this helpful.
Cheers!

  10. I was wondering if you can do a comparison with Bdellium brushes too. I heard they are awesome too. I was watching some reviews on YouTube and the gurus were sent the brushes for free to do a review. Maybe you can too...just a thought...
