      This set was way better than expected. I love that the beauty blender has a stand and the brushes are easy to clean. My foundation looks smooth, does not get cake-y, and lasts a lot longer.

      Love this. Affordable & very easy to use. Very even makeup application. One thing to note: the sponge feels like it absorbs a lot of the makeup.

          Happy I purchased this as it's extremely useful. Tip for anyone concerned about cleaning their makeup sponge-- wash it against a dial soap bar. Gets stains right out!

                          Hi MrldCtyGirl,

                          At this time, the drying stand does not have drainage holes in the bottom. What I recommend doing is rinsing it out with hot water about 1x/week and letting it dry upside down.

                          Thanks!

                          Hi Evelyn,

                          Yes - the larger brush is actually our Expert Face brush, which is perfect for foundation blending and application.

                          Thanks!

                          Thanks for your interest in this set - it's got some of our best selling brushes and everyone's favorite, the Miracle Complexion Sponge! This is meant to be used for foundation, concealer and certain trends like contouring or baking.
