I dont use too many but i definitely need my Sigma Flat Top Kabuki for sure. It just makes foundation blending a dream! Apart from that i use two Vega Professional brushes that im looking to upgrade from but im not a big eyeshadow wearer so dont know if it makes sense for me to invest in expensive ones. I have a flat shader brush, and a small round tapered blending brush.

What about you?

Around 6-7 brushes ..
I use Inglot 21T face n foundation brush ‘n’ The Body Shop Face and Body brush for face..
I use 3-4 MAC brushes for eyes (222, 219, 217, 239)
Recently have started using Colorbar brushes (blusher brush, contouring brush)

I soo desepratly want that Sigma Kabuki brush .. Apart from sigma official website is there any other online site where I can buy the kabuki brush .. ?

How the body shop blush and the colorbar brushes.
I heard the colorbar brushes were scratchy

Body shop one is very soft .. the colorbar ones aren’t that soft but didn’t felt any scratchiness while application.

Thats a great collection Priya! The mac shader is supposed to be great for picking up colour
