What are some Boom Makeup Brushes?

Morphe

Morphe Deluxe Vegan Brushes Set


Just about everyone knows and desires to have at least some of Morphe brushes in their collection.  Some think they are the industry standard right now.  Morphe brushes are well made and moderately priced.  They have a brush for even the most adventurous makeup warrior.  Available in sets and individual pieces.  With lots of handle finishes, they can easily become the star of your vanity.

 

Real Techniques

I needed to replace a few brushes myself.  So I actually just received three of the Real Techniques brushes.  I purchased the Expert Face Brush, Powder Brush, and the Expert Concealer Brush.   The rave reviews are what convinced me to try this line of brushes.  Also, the low price of either the individual brushes or the various sets that are available.  I can't wait to try my new brushes, but I'll have to update this post with a review of the brushes in the near future.  In the meantime, check out this video that shows the versatility of the Real Technique brushes.

elf Beautifully Bare Blending Brush


I have used elf Cosmetic Brushes for years.  elf cosmetics offer good brushes at almost the lowest price point.  Most individual brushes are around $3 with complete brush sets priced between $20 to $30.  Just like the more expensive brands, these brushes come in several finishes and sets.   I've got my eye on the Beautifully Bare Blending Brush.

 

Wet n' Wild

Speaking of inexpensive, check out this white Vegan Brush set by Wet n' Wild.  From their cruelty-free collection, this 6-piece set is one of the lowest-priced sets we have found.  But don't let the low price fool you, these are still good brushes to add to your collection.

Sigma

Finally, we will look at Sigma Brushes, many a YouTube guru favorite brushes.  These hand-crafted brushes are some of the best brushes on the market today.  Also, sold as individual brushes as well as sets.  These brushes are an investment.  Individual brushes can run you $16 to $25 and up.  Sets range from $83 and up.  There is virtually a Sigma brush for every makeup application.
