I'm in love with my Real Techniques brushes put out by Samantha of Pixiwoo. They have some unique brush cuts that aren't like anything I've seen from MAC along with some standards that every line has. They are all synthetic but feel delightful. They are every bit as good as my MAC and Illamasqua brushes for sure. Their stippling brush is a slightly larger version of the MAC #130 and it is $9.99. They sell eye brushes in sets of 5 for $15.95 and face kits of 3 for the same price. I know in the US you can get them at Ulta. There is a Facebook page for them where she's posted a couple times about how to find them in other countries. I bought mine during one of Ulta's buy one, get one 1/2 off sales so they were even less expensive. I imagine if someone was patient enough to wait, the deal will come around again. Also, their $9.99 powder brush puts my #150 to shame. My only complaint is that their "skinny" liner brush is way too thick for liquid or gel lining..I've been using it as a booboo fixer and for using shadow under the bottom lash line.
