What I Love:

Buffing Brush: I am so in love with this brush it makes my foundation go on so effortlessly giving me an airbrush finish that no other brush that I have used has given me.  With this brush I feel like my foundation in flawless but without it feeling heavy on my skin, it helps the foundation cover all my imperfections but you are still being able to see my skin underneeth.  I also really appreciate how fast this apply my foundation specially when I'm running around in the morning.

Pointed Foundation Brush: This brush I mainly used to help me blend in my concelear and for that it's great.  I personally don't feel like this brush is big enough to put on my foundation plus im pretty sure it would take me so long. Like I said this brush works great to blend in my concealer specially because it's pointy and really gets inside the inner corner of my eyes. 

Contour Brush: This is my second favorite brush in this set it does exactly what it says, it helps me contour my cheeks right where the contour is suppost to be. This helps me get a straight line in my cheeks and also blend it in just enough so it looks seemless and more natural. I have yet to try it to highlight but I'm pretty sure I will be just as good for that too. 

Detailer Brush: This brush I have yet to use to be completly honest with you, but I do see myself using it for dark lipstick to conceal around my  lips to make my lipstick look perfect.

Panoramic Brush Case: The case is very sturdy and keeps the brushes in just one place, I personally keep my brushes in a Brush Holder that I made out in my vanity therefore the case for me is unnecessary.  The case is perfect for when you travel it keeps them in one place and prevents them from getting damaged.  Other than that I really don't have much use for it.

What I don't Love:

I just feel that two out of the four brushes will be getting the most use out of them since most of the time I use my finger to blend out my concelear and you know that I don't use dark lipstick all that often.  The case probably wont use at all since most of my brushes stay out on my vanity, its usefull for someone who travels alot and needs to protect there brushes. 
Overall Thoughts: Im very satisfied with the quality and how soft they are, I love how you can use them for different purposes not just what there intended for.  The brush case is something that since I have not much use for I would have really would have appreciated maybe another brush like a brush blush or setting powder brush.  I love the price you get four brushes for $17.99 I had a 20% off coupon that made them even more affortable.  Other than that I'm really in love with the brush set and I know I'll be using at least 2 of them non stop.
