I’m a big fan of taklon brushes. The bristles themselves are super soft and feel great on the skin.
I have several taklon brushes from ecoTools, whom I do recommend. My favorites from them are the retractable recycled kabuki brush, and their eye shadow brushes.
I just recently tried Aromaleigh’s pointed sculptor taklon brush and I am in LOVE with it! It applies color precisely in the crease and outer vee. It doesn’t drag or pull at the eye, but glides smoothly.
Since the majority of my brushes were MAC brushes to begin with, I’ve got high standards (in my opinion) for what I expect out of a brush and what I like.These taklon brushes live up to those standards, and in some cases for me, even exceed them. They are truly great brushes and very inexpensive. Aromaleigh sells the one I purchased from them for $5.55. They seem to range in price from $4.50 to $29.85, with the majority of the eye brushes around $5.55.
Definitely check out taklon brushes if you are looking for new makeup brushes. You will love the feel of them on your skin.
