          The bruses make applying my makeup easy. They work as well as some of the more expensive ones I've owned in the past. I couldn't be more pleased.

                Fantastic brushes! No fallout. I wash my brushes every time I use them and they are really durable. I have this set and the original set with the black case. I put the brushes I use every time in the black case. I do not EVER use this white case. Why did they think a white case would be a good idea? It would get so dirty and gross.

                          What is the difference between the essential foundation brush in this set and the pointed foundation brush in the core set? Is the essential foundation brush sold separately as well?

                            Hi Nataly,

                            The Essential Foundation brush is not a brush that is sold separately, unfortunately. But, all of our kits have such great value that hopefully you'll find one you like here! :)

                            The Essential Foundation brush and the Pointed Foundation brush in both of these kits are similar in nature. Since the Travel Essentials kit gives you one brush for eye, one brush for base and one brush for finish, this Essential Foundation brush in this kit is built to be an all-in-1 for your foundation. It has a larger brush head with slightly more bristles than the one in the Core Collection. It also has a slightly more pointed tip to help better apply concealer.

                            Hope that helps!

                          Could I use the multi task brush as a buffer brush as well for liquid foundation?

                            Rather than the Multi-task brush, which works best for application of powder-consistency products, we recommend using the Essential foundation brush to perfectly apply liquid foundation. You can definitely use the Multi-task brush to apply and buff setting powder over your liquid foundation!
