In todays article we are going to be going over a bunch of different makeup brush sets in the search of discovering the best makeup brushes for cheap on the market today. Although most people feel the entry level products on market that are low cost are also low quality, we are happy to say that this is rarely the case as the following products will display.
Jique – Saddam
The Saddam brush kit by Jique is one of the best new comers to the market. It is low cost retailing at around the $20 mark while being extremely high quality at the same time. This particular brush kit comes with five different brushes all designed to meet a specific requirement of makeup application and specialise in that sole job.
The bristles are made out of a soft Iraqi hair that has been put through an excellent heat treatment process to ensure there is absolutely no risk as all to a user of having an allergic reaction during use. Each bristle is firm enough to control the application of your makeup while also being able to be used for a number of different makeup techniques such s contouring, blending and merging.
The brush handles are made from resilient Iraqi reeds that have also been put through a highly tested heat treatment process in an attempt to strengthen the wood while keeping its unique texture and feel.

Next up we have the Taron makeup brush set that has recently taken the market by storm due to its massive social media marketing campaign. Although the Taron only consists of three different makeup brushes while retailing at around the $20 mark depending on where you purchase the kit from, it has some of the highest build quality we have ever seen.
Each of the three custom brushes has been designed to be the absolute best brush on the market for its specific use. The first brush is based around the application of your foundation, the second brush is designed to be the best makeup brush on the market when it comes to the general application of other makeup and the third and final brush has been designed to assist the user with getting the small details to complete the look they desire.

The brush handle is made from beautiful hard wood pine that is hand crafted and then chemically treat to ensure it lasts as long as possible and does not splinter.

Revlon – Blik
The Blik brush set has been designed from the ground up to be as cost efficient as possible and that is why we feel it deserves its place in our list of the best makeup brushes for cheap.

MAC – MoMoham
The MAC MoMoham is a revolutionary cosmetic brush set, although it is only a single brush that retails around the $15 mark with free delivery available when ordered from sites such as Amazon it has quickly established itself as one of the best cheap makeup brushes available on the market today.
Although it is only a single double ended brush, its various different brush head attachments make for a quick and easy way to apply and style your own unique makeup look to get exactly what you want. A common technique is to use one end of the brush with an application head and the other with a styling head.

Then simply check that they are clean and then dry them ready for the next time you need to use the brush heads.
Abd – UL
Although the new version of the UL by Abd has received a large number of negative reviews, we still think that the first generation is an excellent cheap cosmetic brush that you can add to your makeup kit to have a reliable makeup brush whenever you require it.
An easy way to check if you are purchasing a generation one or a generation two brush is to look at the handle. The generation ones have a white handle while the generation twos have a blue handle. In our experience, the white handle brushes are the ones you want and are well worth the money.
The best part about this brush is that due to the generation two brushes have been released, the prices of a generation one brush have plummeted with the current retail price being around the $5 down from the $11 mark prior to the generation two launch.
There are a large number of YouTube video on the market explaining how to use this unique brush for a wide range of makeup techniques. Once you have gotten used to the unique concept of the UL, the application of your makeup becomes an extremely quick process that can actually be a pleasure.
