Decent Makeup Brushes??

Does anyone know of any Rite Aid or Walmart-available makeup brushes that DON'T SHED all over your face? I paid for the Bare Minerals brushes when I bought the makeup but those SHED and I hate them. I'm betting I can get something better at Rite Aid or Walmart, but which ones?

*Rite Aid and Walmart are my only two stores nearby.

  • I bought one that folds down into itself that I like. Also I use the brushes from Mary Kay. I started using them when I started selling the products and I like that their eye shadow applicators don't fall apart. I used to have that happen with my other eye shadows before.

  • The ones I use are Sonia Kashuk brushes and you can find them at Target. They don't shed and I've had the for a while now.

  • The best brushes are actually from art stores... you can get much higher quality brushes, made of the same materials (usually better materials, and even goat hair) for a fraction the cost of even the cheapest "make-up" brushes. The art store brushes are far more durable, and you have a much wider variety (if you want the same ones from the make-up counters, get a picture from online from MAC or Bobbie Brown of the individual brushes). Just make sure to pick the individual, unpackaged, ones, and don't buy the multi-packs. Feel them too, if you don't like the feel on your hands, you really won't like them on your face.
