Candidates for a Brush Set

Robinson's is a having 2 Cardmembers' sale nights this week. TANGS is having a 2 day sale too, with one day being a Cardmembers' closed door special day. I plan to RUN down there! Maybe even take a half day off. I don't care! 20% off regular products at Robinson's means I can get some things that I want without having to sensibly control myself and put off buying them. TANGS' is just a 12% rebate, but they have some brands that Robinson's doesn't. I'm compiling my Want List, trying to prioritise. I couldn't possibly buy everything ... *sad* Among the huge list of things, including more liquid eyeshadow and eyeliner, I'm considering a brush set. The usual suspects (MAC, Shu Uemura and Bobbi Brown) are selling brush sets for Christmas. My main desires from a brush set:
  • Big and dense powder brush
  • Dense and fluffy blusher brush
  • Eyeshadow blender brush
  • Eyeshadow liner brush
  • A pretty but utilitarian pouch (ie. able to include a compact, a stick of lipgloss and probably a palette inside too)
I actually have 3 out of the 4 above brushes that are useful and cheap. So, really, I should just look for a nice pouch and a big, dense powder brush separately. But I do have some desires for either the Shu Uemura portable Mika set (for the 2 big brushes and the cute pouch). Or the Bobbi Brown Copper Diamond Deluxe Mini set (also has 2 big brushes and a cute pouch). I heard the Mac set isn't that great so I might give that a miss. To buy or not to buy, and then, what to buy. Still thinking hard about this issue. © Copyright. All rights reserved.
