MAC Dupe Brushes

MAC brushes are pretty pricey! I only have a Special Edition set that I purchased from a CCO, the rest of my brushes are a hodge-podge of different  brands: Avon, Sonia Kashuk (love these!) EDM, Essence of Beauty and more…

However, the majority of my eye brushes are actually from Loew-Cornell, who makes paint brushes.  I usually get my brushes from crafts stores, such as Michaels.

Enkore on YouTube has a GREAT video about MAC brush dupes.mac-brushes-dupe


However, for those of you on dial up (gasp!) or don’t like to watch videos, I have written the list for you below:

MAC 150 Large Powder Brush= Loew Cornell XXL Round

MAC 129 Blush Brush= Loew Cornell L Round

MAC 134 Large Powder (saddle shape) = Loew Cornell Maxine Mop 1 inch

MAC 239 Eye Shadow/Shading Brush= Loew Cornell Maxine Mop 3/8 inch

MAC 194 Concealer Brush= Loew Cornell Filbert #8

MAC 228 Mini Shader Brush= Loew Cornell Maxine Mop 1/2 inch

MAC 190 Foundation Brush= Loew Cornell Filbert 1 inch

I have all of these brushes (!) and love them. Keep in mind that they look like what they are: paint brushes and tend to have longer handles… Also, the brushes are a LOT cheaper than MAC ones…

Please watch the video if possible, Enkore actually shows the brushes side by side and provides much more information.
