This set is amazing. Balance in the hand, performance. I love how the bristles pick up product. It's true, more like goat hair but soft as squirrel. The length of the handle & light weight of the brush becomes one with my hand. So easy to use. They have washed well, both dry & wet cleansing. I have used the foundation brush for liquid a couple of times with no issues. Although I would like to, I don't plan on doing this often as to preserve the life of the brush. Fude is wonderful to order from. Fast delivery, good communication through email on tracking. I am in the USA & have ordered a couple of times with the same experience. I have used these for 5 months so they have been tested. These brushes make me want to use them! Hard to resist.
