I had seen a sample of the Sonia Kashuk Small, Multi-Purpose Powder Brush but it had been out of stock. I went to MAC yesterday because I had been really wanting the new, LE, eyeshadow quad from the Quite Cute collection. The MUA did my eye makeup using the quad, after which I wasn't quite so impressed with it after all. One brush that he used was the MAC 217, which is similar to 224 but with slightly shorter bristles and a bit stiffer. It is perfect for using in the crease and adding to the outer corners of the eye. I decided to buy it, mostly because I liked it and didn't have any idea what I was going to get for this month's brush and partially because I felt badly about not wanting to buy the quad after the MUA did my eye makeup.
Today, I had to stop off in Target to pick something up and lo and behold, the brush that was out of stock was now in stock. I decided to pick it up even if I did buy a brush for this month. I didn't want to miss out on it again if it sells out. This brush is very similar in feel to the MAC 224. I am so glad because I've been wanting to get another soft, blending brush.

I'm happy that I was able to find and get two brushes for this month. As a side note, the Sonia Kashuk brush was half the price of the MAC 217 brush. I know that MAC makes good quality brushes that last for years but I believe that Sonia Kashuk's brushes are just as good. Of course, I don't have any idea if it's longevity will be equal to MAC's but I must say that I haven't had any problems with any of the brushes that I have bought.
How is everyone's weekend going so far? Mine will be quite busy so please excuse me if I am not around much. I'm hoping that you all will have a wonderful weekend!
