Best Budget Brushes

When I think back to what affordable brushes used to be like, I quiver; foundation streaks and unblended eyeshadow were all too common.

NYX Cosmetics Lingerie Liquid Lipstick

I was a complete liquid lipstick virgin before biting the bullet and purchasing this one from NYX Cosmetics.
