    Nope but I've asked sis to bring me back some from the US. If she does, I'll report back

    I've been lurking here and you have all inspired me to revisit my makeup choices before I go back to work from mat leave. So, I've been to Mecca today, had my makeup done, and bought up big! So much fun. Looking forward to playing with my new things.

    I bought a very expensive brush for foundation, that they raved about. But, I haven't got any other brushes. Any recommendations for moderately priced ones?

    Oh how exciting!

    What other products did you buy? I'd love to get my makeup done properly at Mecca but I'm too scared that I'd buy the shop!!

    I bought a chantecaille foundation, which was pretty pricey so I hope it really lasts, especially with using a primer which I've never done before. A Terry touch expert concealer, hourglass primer, hourglass gel eyeliner and a stila eyeshadow palette.

    Really need to do something about puffy dark circles under my eyes though if anyone has good tips. The concealer helped but only so much.

    Excited to try the eye shadows until I realized there are no applicators with them....oops.

    ^ I think the Zoeva ones from Sephora are meant to be good but I haven't tried them yet. Still on my very long wish list!

    The Too Faced teddy bear hair brush set from Mecca gets good reviews.

    I've never used them but for real cheapies, eco tools brushes get some good reviews. They can be low around $20 a set or $6 individual brushes.
    Real techniques are popular although I've never used them. Around $17-35 a brush depending on size
    I love sigma brushes but they are ridiculously expensive in Australia. I'd be tempted to check the cost in the US, and get them posted or use a US shipping address.

    For decent priced brushes, Models Prefer (Priceline) or Real Techniques (I bought from iHerb.com SO much cheaper than priceline, but ebay is good too!). ELF Studio brushes are great for a really cheap brushes as well (Kmart and elf website, but ebay is way better) I'm dying to get a set of Zoeva brushes though

    Definitely zoeva. They are amazing. I have owned a lot of different brushes and I absolutely love zoeva. I recommend them to all my clients. They are reasonably priced and compare to many high end brushes. You can get them from Sephora, but I order mine from beautybay (little bit cheaper).

    Thanks for the tips on brushes ladies. I'm definitely going to check those out.

    I tried my new eyeshadow (using an old applicator) this morning....in love :-).

    Also tried putting on foundation with the brush I bought and that was a bit challenging after being used to using my fingers. That will take some practice, and maybe research into how best to do it.
