    Oh my make up brushes are decades old. I actually need short handled ones now, I’m struggling to see with my long handled brushes.

      I could not possibly get along without my lighted magnifying mirror. I’ve always been blind as a bat for distance, but now have middle-aged close-up vision problems as well. I put makeup on without my contacts in, so I just stick my face up in the mirror and plaster it on. Shorter handled brushes do work better for me. Once I’ve got the eye makeup on, I can put contacts in and finish up with the blush & blending. Or I could just go barefaced, but that’s not a pretty sight!

      I 2nd the magnifying mirror point, never knew how good they are for makeup until I holidayed this summer with a female friend and she used one each night for makeup..

      Love the holiday offerings also, a brilliant time for brush/moisturizer/mascara/eye makeup remover/fragrance purchases, often have decent freebies with them at this time of year – I have learned to stock up! Have a lovely holiday time Elle x

    What a great selection! I want them all but I love Mac and the leopard seals the deal.

    These brush sets are great. I have had such great luck with Mac brushes. I am really taken with the “Perfectly Plush” set.

    Good old Bobbi Brown. Nothing like peach satin to make one feel feminine in an classic movie sort of way.

    Brilliant idea. Mine are old and the handles too long. I’m going to get a set today!

    I got a kit from Sephora with something like 12 brushes but I only use one. I’m not really sure what all of the brushes are for. I noticed in an earlier post you mentioned that lipstick is applied with a brush-blot-brush procedure but I’m still not sure how it’s supposed to work. I vote for a lipstick application post!

    They’re all so pretty! This post makes me want to go out and buy a set and take a trip next week.
