This 20 piece premium quality luxury makeup brush set is really a great replacement for my raggedy onesd that I had. I am really glad I got these! They are quality brushes and there are so many different sizes and kinds that I will never be lacking for the one I want. These are not only easy to use, they are easy to clean up also! Just run them under the water with a mild soap like dawn, and rinse until there is no more color coming out of the brushes. These are made of synthetic fibers so they will not cause any kind of reaction like animal hair. You have to try them to believe them!
