Drugstore Find: Essence Of Beauty Brushes Won't Shed All Over Your Face

In every CVS, Essence of Beauty brushes are there. But, as with all bargain beauty brands (okay, as with all beauty brands, period), not every brush gives you bang for your buck. So, which should you buy and which should you skip? This handy primer will help you unearth the gems.

Buy: Crease Brush Duo ($5)

Why: The larger brush’s soft hairs give your shadow a smudgy, blended, and natural look in the crease. It’s also a perfect shape for use along the outer V. Use the smaller brush for more precise application around the inner corner of the eye.

Buy: Kabuki Brush ($10)

Why: This soft brush applies mineral makeup and all kinds of powder in a smooth, even fashion, and at $10 a pop, it’s much more affordable than its higher-end counterparts.

Skip: Synthetic Foundation & Powder Brush ($10)

Why: Although the bristles are good for applying liquid foundation, they shed. And there’s unfortunately nothing like brush hairs in your makeup for ruining your look.

And don’t forget to check circulars for your local drugstores – Essence of Beauty is a brand that’s often put on sale. Good news for your brush collection and good news for your wallet – what could be better?
