MAKEUP BRUSHES!!

I'm all excited I FINALLY have some makeup brushes!  I ordered them online (ebay of course!!).   Now they said it was a set of MAC brushes... obviously they were fake, because I did the research online, but I got a crap load of brushes... I suppose I should count them for the full effect, grand total (drum roll please) is 32... First of all, I have no idea what half of them are used for.  I suppose trial and error is the way to go!  I'm still excited for all of this, because I'm sure I'll find uses for them!  I'm kinda bummed that they are fake, but at the same time, I only paid like $20 bucks for the whole set.  They aren't high quality like my Bobby Brown brush (which I love!!) but they are better than some of the cheaper brushes I have floating in my makeup bag, so I suppose beggars can't be choosers!  So here is some pictures of them so you can see!

Do you guys have favorite brushes?  If so, what are they, and why are they your favorites?  Its always great to know what everyone else out there is using!

ugh..well that's a bummer that they are fake...you should be able to call people out on it on Ebay...or maybe you can...if you can I think you should!!

I can leave a negative feedback, which I plan on doing... I had a feeling it was too good to be true!

Heya!

I got scammed the same way, however I paid more for my brushes, way more, because the seller provided the receipt as proof of purchase, so I believed them to be the real deal, but upon receiving them, fake. I was really cranky about it, Ebay wouldn't do anything and the seller disappeared so I couldn't get my money back.
But... after using them I acually don't find them too bad, and if I bought them as a no name brand at my local discount cosmetics store if might have cost me more anyway, just beware that these brushes shed like mad when you first get them, I ended up pulling them all out and just brushing them over my skin while watching TV etc to get rid of most of the shedding.

What a great idea Bec! I used them this morning, and I found them to be not bad! I did manage to dump some mineral powder in bright red all over them! Now they are at least half trendy! lol

Hi Lovely,
I'm sure you can open a claim, Misrepresentation. Gut feelings are always right.

That is a lot of brushes... I think I have 5. My favorite is the angle brush I got from the body shop years ago when a girl showed me how to used it to put on liquid eyeliner!
