Makeup Brushes @ a craft store?

YES! Makeup brushes are sold at Michaels Crafts! Well, not real makeup brushes, but I found great brushes that painters use that are great quality and super soft.

Loew-Cornell 270 Maxine's Mop 

My opinion is that they are all Mac/Sigma comparable for no more than $8

This big one was the most "expensive" $8 something (Can't find my receipt sorry).
This brush is so soft. I find it perfect for applying highlight to my cheek bones. 
It's the 3/4 Loew-Cornell 270 Maxine's Mop

This brush was approximately $4 something. Again so soft, and great for getting the color onto the bristles. This is comparable to Mac's 277 brush ($30). I use it to apply highlight to my brow bone.
1/2 Loew-Cornell 270 Maxine's Mop

This one was about $3. This is great to apply any color on the lid. Very soft, cant say that enough about these brushes. It's a great dupe for the Mac 239 ($24.50).
3/8 Loew-Cornell 270 Maxine's Mop

This is the smallest and my most favorite. This was also about $3. I use it under my eye for my lower lash line. It puts the perfect amount of color to smudge out. This one reminds me of the Mac 219 pencil brush, even if the shape is different it's the same concept ($24.50).
1/4 Loew-Cornell 270 Maxine's Mop

I apologize again for not having the exact pricing but they are all under $10! Thats a steal and for good brushes.


  1. I am so glad you posted this! I lost my Mac brush and I've been wanted to get another one but didn't want to pay $30 again. I'm going to print this out and take it with me to Michaels the next time I go.

  2. Thanks Daisy. I was so surprised when I found these and I LOVE LOVE LOVE THEM!
    Hope you try them out
