      I was excited to get these brushes. Love tongues the big brush for my foundation to start then I use the real techniques sponge. I love the second larger brush for blending my setting powder over my concealer and also use for my highlight at times. I've used the smaller brushes for concealing smaller trouble areas. Great buy!

                    I really wanted to like these brushes, there was only one brush out of the 4 that I could use the rest where no good. I love my real technique brushes but they must have changed something because these are so thin my old ones are so dense and put my make up on so nicely these just sucked. I ended up returning them.

                      These brushes are amazing!! I took advantage of the buy one get one free sale and ordered myself this larger pack and one free single brush. I love them so much! I can say they are a little smaller than I expected(online purchase) but they are as soft and efficient as my *T brushes.I want to purchase the small eye brushes next!

                          A:

                          The Buffing Brush is not sold individually. The most similar brush that is sold individually is the Expert Face Brush:
                          http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=xlsImpprod4260015&skuId=2244502

                          The bristles are just as dense and will allow for great pickup/application, and it is meant to be used in the same way as the Buffing Brush in terms of applying product on your face. The difference is that the length of the bristles is much shorter. That allows more targeted application and slightly more coverage.

                          Additionally, the new Bold Metals Flat Contour Brush has a secondary use as a foundation brush:
                          http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=xlsImpprod11831013&skuId=2283104

                          It, too, has denser, shorter bristles, but the quality of the bristles on this brush is second to none! Additionally, the weighted handle allows for more control, leading to flawless looking skin.

                          We hope this extra info helps! :-)

                          At its widest point, the diameter of the Pointed Foundation Brush is just over 1.25".

                          The Detailer Brush is perfect for concealer application. Use the Contour Brush within this set to perfectly apply blush.

                          It may be a bit too flat in shape to apply brow products, but many use it to apply concealer around the brows to help define the brows. A video tutorial of this technique is available here:
