I recently saw these on sale on Sephora and thought they were so cute [read - went over budget to buy]! Which made very hard to resist buying [sale + cute = a battle of willpower]. I read some very good reviews about this brushes and I couldn't wait to try them. These brushes didn't disappoint, although I didn't want to use these brushes at first [sooo cute!]. The brushes are very soft for synthetic brushes. It picks enough product and distributes it evenly. I am really sad that I didn't buy more than one set.
