TOOL TALK: Landmark Brushes Are A Frugalista's Love

Whenever I need a quick fix (as in shopping), but have no enough money, I always go to Landmark. From racks and racks of clothes, accessories, purses and shoes to even gifts, Landmark is (I feel dumb as I say this, hahaha) --- the place to be. =)

Anyway, recently, I snagged a few brushes from the Landmark TriNoma and so far I am happy with my finds. I think there was a cosmetic section sale that time. I also got myself some acrylic boxes for my lippies and blushes, and boy, I was like a crazy girl picking jellybeans from a candy store. Some cosmetic stores sell these acrylic boxes for a thousand pesos and more but I just got mine for a little less than 200 pesos each. I got myself 4 or 5 boxes I think. I'll post a photo of them here soon since I don't have them here in the province.

Anyway here are the brushes:

Landmark Eyeshadow Brushes
Landmark Eyeshadow Brushes
I got (from L-R) a thin and fine point eyeliner brush, a sponge-tip eyeshadow applicator, a slightly tapered/angled blending brush, an eyeshadow application brush and a flat brush which I use for application and smudging too. The brushes were priced differently, ranging from 60 to 250 pesos. Still cheap right?

Landmark Mini Kabuki Brush
This one is a mini kabuki brush, which is fluffy and soft enough for my mineral powder. I got it for about a 100 pesos or so.

Landmark Mini Kabuki Brush
All of the brushes are pretty decent. They've got quite long handles which is just okay for me as I don't usually bring my eyeshadow brushes with me anyway. The bristles are amazingly soft, they don't bleed or shed too. I'm pretty sure they're all made of synthetic hair but I tell you, they're really soft and not scratchy at all they could pass as natural hair. The handles are of wood/plastic type and the ferrules are made of silver metal. And of course, they do the job well. =)

I would suggest you try these brushes out especially if you're on a budget. They don't actually look and feel cheap, I promise. You can find these brushes at the cosmetic section of the Landmark TriNoma, I'm not sure if the Landmark Makati has them too. There are a lot, lot, lot of brushes to choose from, just make sure you pick the right ones. =)

What about you? What's your latest frugalista find?

hi kath, sadly walang case yung mini kabuki, and yes, you can use it for your powder foundation. works better pa nga than a regular powder brush kasi it's really dense. :)
