MAC Brushes vs Loew Cornell (Artist) Brushes List

UPDATE 7/19/11: I went to all the arts and crafts stores in my area (Michaels, Beverly's, Joann's, Artell and Aaron Brothers) and NONE of them carry Loew Cornell Brushes. The lady at Aaron Brother's said that its not a brand that artists ask for, which is why I couldnt find it anywhere.

She said to use synthetics brushes, because they will be the ones that will pick up the most product. And of course, to make sure they are soft.

Thought you would all like to know that bit of  detail.

Hello Readers!

I came across something very interesting and thought I would share it to you all.

Everyone wants every single MAC brush, however they are very pricey. I have a solution!

You can use artist brushes as makeup brushes.

Here is a comparison that I found here of MAC Brushes to Loew Cornell Brushes. EnKore also does a video of some of these brushes here.

Loew Cornell Brushes are good quality Artist brushes...one of the best actually.

Still finding a cheaper artist brush for the MAC 187.

If you have anything to add to the list, please comment.

Thank you!
