Ok, I know it's super early, but I want to get my bf little sister (well she's not so little, she's 21) some good synthetic brushes for Christmas. She's recently turned into a major vegetarian, and doesn't eat a lot of food she use too and she didn't realize that the brushes she was using before or made from animal hair until I told her. :Push: She bought cheap cheap brushes from Ulta that smelled really funny and are really scratchy too. I'm not too familiar with a lot of brands that sell synthetic brushes. :shrugs:I use coastal scent brushes and I know they sell a set, but I want to see if anyone could give me more choices to choose from. Any help or input would be great! :heart:

Everyday Minerals for their foundation brushes they have a few styles and the synthetic hairs do not shed and are sooooo sooooft!
Another vote for Everyday Minerals makeup brushes! They're so soft, I swear! And the handles are all made from bamboo now. :P I have the Long Handled Kabuki, Flat Top Brush, Angled Blush Brush, and the Eye Kabuki Brush. There's a new Foundation Brush that just came out, I'm going to purchase that too. These are so inexpensive and super soft, totally worth the money! :tup:

Thanks for the suggestion ladies! Stupid me forgot about EM brushes, I think I'll order one next time I buy a kit because I want to see how soft they are. I'll also check out target next time I'm out too!

Keep the brushes' comin' please. :flowers:

I have two EcoTools brushes (the blush/powder brush and the lash/brow groomer) and they are wonderful! They have synthetic Taklon bristles (which are absolutely soft, heavenly, and dense), bamboo handles, and ferules made of recycled aluminum. The six-piece set is fantastic. You get a blush/powder brush, a concealer brush, an eyeshadow brush, an angled shadow/liner brush, a lash/brow groomer, and an organic fabric roll pouch for about $11. Don't let the low price fool you. These brushes rival expensive cosmetic company brushes in terms of density and softness of bristles and durability.
