These are great quality. I got a great deal on Beauty dot com. Approx $10.00 cheaper than Rite-ade (sp) I bought the ones shown and the the ones with the purple stems for lips and eyes. They are so soft and distribute really well. I recommend them.
I think they do a great job for the price range. I'm a big fan of them for everyday use. Now that Real Techniques has released their own brush cleanser and cleansing mat I have gotten the best wear of them.
