SK haul...

What do you do when you can't afford all the MAC you want? You go to Target and stock up on SK! That's right Sonia Kashuk!
Along with that, I got the SK blending Sponge & a brush roller. I love the SK blending sponge ($9.99). It works very well at blending my concealer and hiding your flaws and it also works great for liquid foundation too.
I bought the SK holiday gold set and I love it! I love the sleek handles and the case that came with it! It was super cheap too so I can't complain. It came with 7 brushes but don't know where the powder brush went. L to R: crease/blending brush, small eye shadow brush, concealer brush, smudger brush, angled eyeshadow brush & brown brush/comb. This set was only $19.99 which I think is a very good price for the quality and quantity.
SK flat top blusher brush ($14.99): This brush feels so soft but I have yet to find a use for it. The bristle is very dense but honestly, I think it's a little too long. When I tried using this brush, the bristles just kind of bends and it doesn't go where I want it to. Unless you are looking for full coverage, I wouldn't use this brush.

SK white handle crease brush ($6.99 or $7.99 - can't remember for sure). In the picture above, I can comparing it to the gold handle one I got in the SK holiday set. I like the white handle one more as it is not as big as the gold handle one so it works with my crease alot better. The gold one is a tad big for my eyes. The white handle one is comparable to the MAC 217, a very close dupe.
Yours truly!

i agree that MAC is very expensive. I love sonia kashuk because its a great dupe for mac brushes. i bought the brush roll a while back too for travelling. It actually is a bit small for mac brushes but it's okay.
