MAC Brush breakdown
Check out my Items of the Week - the latest MAC brush sets. MAC comes out with new sets a couple of times a year and it’s a great way to invest in nice brushes. The savings are awesome too because if you bought each of these brushes on their own, you would spend $20 - $45 on each brush. I will give you the MAC description of each brush for quick reference.
