    Recommend Alternatives for these Brushes

    Hello everyone,

    I would like to know you opinion about brush "dupes" out there for the following. I know there are many brushes that look similar but their construction and effects are different, hence they aren't true dupes.

    If I have forgotten to mention a dupe, please make your recommendations, as I do not know ever single brand out there . I have heard of Sonia Kashuk and Bdellium, do you like them?

    Also, for validity, please state WHY a brush didn't duplicate another, etc. I use MAC as reference because they are popular. Dont be afraid to give higher/same price alternatives IF their quality/value is SUPERIOR to the MAC option.

    I know this may be much to ask especially with all the so-called dupe floating around. I have heard people say SIGMA doesnt perform as well as MAC and so on.




    MAC 108 - Sonia Kashuk Dense blush/powder brush, Sigma (Any others?)
    MAC 130 - Sigma F55, Real techniques stippling brush
    MAC 187 - Sigma F50, Sonia Kashuk Stippling brush



    I am much more interested in the EYE blending brushes though:

    MAC 217 - Coastal Scents Pro Blending Fluff, (Any others?)
    MAC 219 - Are there any TRUE dupes?
    MAC 224 - Sigma E40
    MAC 225 - Inglot 4ss

    The Sigma F55 is closer to the MAC 188 than the 130. Sigma F80 is more like the 130, except the F80's bristles are all synthetic, and it's a bigger brush. The Real Techniques Stippling Brush is about the same size as the F80, but I think it's less dense. MAC 217 ~ Sigma E25. MAC 219 ~ Sigma E30. Hakuhodo also have some dupes in their 200 series, I believe.

    I'm a bit of a brush junkie, personally, and love "window shopping" for them online, so... Happy to help.
