Dear friends-especially makeup fanatics like me-if you are all going to Landmark, please don't forget to look for these brushes at the Health and Beauty section. I love Charm, but I won't say no to cheap brushes that have good quality! I am so happy for spotting these brushes in one of my Landmark trips. Currently, they're my favorites, most especially the powder brush!
Artist Studio, I think, is a generic brand of brushes from China. (well, they didn't say they're from China, but I feel that they are!) The brand offers makeup brushes made with synthetic and nylon fibers.

Angled Flat Top Brush
- This is the first of its kind I've ever seen. I have flat top kabuki brushes and they're great, but I find this more useful because the slanted shape helps me apply makeup on the inner corners on my face.

For an affordable brush, it's quite dense, ha!
- This brush is pure love because its width and denseness is perfect for me. I find that most large powder brushes are still too tapered for my liking, and I like the width of this one: It's bigger and it lets me apply powder on a huge part of my skin. Suffice to say, it cuts my preparation time in half!
I've been using tinted setting powders lately and this baby does the trick. It's dense, but not too compact, (if you know what I'm saying) and it helps me achieve a soft focus and mildly tinted finish, especially when I'm using tinted finishers. It prevents my overall look from being too cakey!
Whoops! I forgot to clean it. Anyway, it works just like any regular foundation brush but the difference is, this is cheaper! :D
Fundamentally, all brushes are soft, and they don't have any weird odor. The bristles are easy to rinse, yet drying time takes awhile, which is a known issue in brushes with synthetic bristles. And nope, these brushes don't shed--not even during the first wash!
In all honesty, the brushes have this cheap quality, but I gotta love the way they perform! I love these brushes, and I cannot overemphasize! For fabulous, unique finds like these brushes, you gotta go to Landmark!
A little word of caution though, please don't go for the brushes made with genuine animal hair because they suck: A little tugging on the brush causes a major hair fall, and I firmly believe that they won't last even after the first wash.
Are you a Landmark lurker like me? Please share your favorite finds! :)
