For example, the Robert Simmons S57 angle brush, which I bought for $6.99, is a great dupe for the MAC 266 which retails for $19.50.
I've started to use the brushes and truthfully can't find anything negative to say. Appearance, yes, the brushes I chose have white tips. Performance, no, they performed as well. I'm sold. I'm saving my money for more makeup and heading back to Michaels to check out more brushes.
(The LC Maxine 1/4" is a dupe for the MAC 228. The LC XXL round is a dupe for the MAC 150 . The LC Maxine Mop 3/8" is a dupe for the MAC 239. Hmm, maybe the MAC's are dupes for the LC's?)
