Sedona Lace! I have the basic kit and Im not a fan of it. It okay, just for essentials. I hate the stippling brush. I just use it to apply moisturizer or primer on clients. But the Vortex Set is A MUST HAVE! I am going to get another one and also purchase the Midnight Lace Kabuki kit. Sigma is always raising their prices. I hate that! I have YET to see them have a sale. I dont think I will ever purchase from them. Maybe one set (the premium kit) just to see the quality of their brushes. But after many blogs and reviews via YouTube, I think their brushes are just like Sedona Lace. But Sedona Lace is ALWAYS having a sale. I purchased two brush sets from them on Black Friday at 50% off. And that Vortex kit is AMAZING! I love the bristle textures, the quality of the handles, no shedding, a good variety within the set and the brushes are for way more than basic use. The tulip brush is my favorite for applying bronzer on clients.
ALSO! I like Real Techniques. There wasnt a real WOW factor for me, like some of the reviews I have read. But they are nice brushes. Especially for the price. I also LOVE ELF brushes. I know they are like dirt cheap, but they have some really great face brushes. The complexion brush is GREAT to apply powder or blush. I love their small stippling brush for foundation and HD blush. I like the pointed foundation brush. It applies MAC Studio Sculpt perfectly. Also, the small tapered brush is FABULOUS for contouring. I LOVE it. And lastly, the small angle blush brush is great for blush and contouring. NO SHEDDING, soft, apply well. Really great brushes. Order them if you have never tried them. They are worth way much more than they charge. You won't be disappointed!
