For the first time on G&GB, I HAVE A GUEST BLOGGER! Steph from The Fantasia (a fav of mine) is here today to give the lowdown on two dupes for the infamous MAC 217 because who doesn't love a good budget dupe, amirite? (Now if you'll excuse me, I'm off to admire her product shots for this post)
Starting off your makeup brush collection is a daunting and intimidating process. Do you invest in them or sacrifice quality for price? Do you go with the high-end brand, or start out with the lower price point? Which brand? Which brush? Can you really get both quality and price? The list of questions only gets longer and longer!
One of everyone’s favourite brush is the MAC 217 Blending Brush ($28, available here), which at $28 a piece made me cringe at the thought of initially investing in it. Trust me, the 4.7/5 rating and 92% repurchase rate on MakeupAlley doesn’t make it any easier to resist. Fortunately, I’ve found 2 dupes that are about half the price of the MAC brush, and after trialing both for more than a year, I’d say they are strong competition to the real thing!
