These are probably some of the best brushes I've ever used! Seriously. I can't believe I forgot to write a review for them. The quality, workmanship, and durability of these brushes is excellent. I purchased an entire brush set for 39.99 from Ulta about 7 years ago during one of their 'Spend $75 and get this brush set for only $40 Christmas deals'. It included a large face powder brush, medium face powder brush, angled contouring brush, blush brush, highlighting brush, hard tipped angled eye liner brush (love love love), oval eye shadow brush, eyeshadow highlighting brush, and a lip brush, all in a leatherette velcro close case. After all these years, these brushes still apply makeup like new. Because they're large, I've ventured out in search of travel size brushes. I've tried many brands......these are still some of the best IMO.
