i have so many blending buds that it isn’t even funny. I have at least 2 from 5 different companies and these ones are just as good as the $20 blenders that I have purchased elsewhere. They work amazing, blend product well, and don’t soak up a ton of foundation like some others that I have used. They are amazing when wet and don’t hold a ton of water and deluge my make up. They don’t smell bad like I have tried and wash very easily! I would definitely recommend these to a friend or family member. The only thing I would change is having a box contain different shaped blenders instead of them all being the same. I love them though so I’m not too sad about it.
