We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities!

A friend of mine is a mac trainer, and she said the Laura Mercier eye crease brush is just alike, if not a bit better. I really love the results I get when I use it.

I don’t think you will find Laura Mercier at Target lol. Don’t you have to get that at like a department store? It’s like a high-quality department store. Target has Sonia Kashuk though!

I’ve just started building up a set of brushes. I got a Sephora brush set for xmas, it’s a good start! The only brush I have duplicates of is a face powder brush, but they’re different sizes anyway so I suppose it doesn’t count.

I try not to get any dupes, there are so many brushes out there and there might be an ‘even better one’
And people keep mentioning dupes of their favourite or most popular brushes, slight variations on the same brush probably wont do anything

Eyes-MAC 242,252,239,217,224,222,263,210,219 (I have 2-5 of each of these)
Face-MAC 187,129, 150, 168, 138 (I have 2-3 of each of these)

I have 1 full set that is just for freelance work & my personal brushes that I like to have duplicates of since I change the colors I use every day & with extra brushes I’ve always got a clean brush ready.

Pur Minerals chisel brushes and powder brushes(because they comes in so many of their “showstoppers” on the CDN Shopping channel; Quo retractable lipstick brush (I have 3.
Ones I’d LOVE to have multiples of (but they’re too darned pricey): MAC 130, 217, 239 and 224.

I have a lot of double brushes because I work at MAC and I bring my own brushes. This way I don’t have to clean them as often because I have extra clean ones. lol

But these are the ones I have duplicates of:
209 x2
217 x 10
224 x 4
239 x 5
242 x 2
190 x 3
188 x 2
187 x 2
150 x 2
109 x 2

I have 3 of MAC #217. One for lighter colors, one for darker, and one that I use with the black greasestick! I need to get more of other brushes.

I have collections from Sigma,Estee Lauder,Lancome,Guerlain,Sephora,and Clinique. I think that about covers it. These are full collections, with 2-4 of some, in the same collections. Too many, I know, I always have extras.

5 Revlon Professional All-Over Color Eyeshadow Brushes;
2 Revlon Professional Contour Color Eyeshadow Brushes;
2 Smashbox 15 Contour Brushes;
2 Lancome Blending Brushes;
2 Estee Lauder 11E Blending Brushes; and
3 elf Powder Brushes (from their Studio Line).
There are more duplicates in my MU brush collection but these are brushes I reach for the most often.
