Essence of Beauty brushes

I greatly needed to expand my brush collection so I took advantage of a sale on Essence of Beauty brushes at CVS. I had specifically been looking for a rounded dome brush and I'm kind of surprised I found one in this line. I've always heard good things about these and I have to say I am quite pleased with them, especially for the price. I've had little shedding and they are all soft while still usable. The one complaint I have is that I wish they would have a wider selection of shadow brushes.

I just want to share some pictures of my new pretties with you because maybe I'm odd but I love looking at brushes.
Smokey-Wide brush. The Smokey end is a pointed dome and I love it. The Wide end I'm not really loving too much, it's too thick to use as a blending brush and isn't...fluffy? enough for an all over color brush. Seems to grip the color a little to well instead of depositing.

Mini travel set. These are shorter than the Smokey-Wide brush and come in this useless travel case I could not for the life of me get to fold or zip.

Smokey-Angle, Smudge-Brow, Fine-Percision, Touch Up- Conceal


Angle (a fluffy angled brush but seems to suffer from the same issue as the Wide brush above but not as bad. I use it for my highlight mostly), Brow (I prefer my brow brush a little thicker but this is decent but I usually use it for lining my lower lid), Fine (very thin and straight, handy to keep around in my kit) and Touch Up (great for applying touches of color to the inner corner or working out fine details).
Smokey (different than the first Smokey, this one isn't pointed but a rounded dome. I love these, plain and simple) , Smudge (seriously, I will never use this!), Fine (another great brush to keep around that can perform tons of tasks), Conceal (this seems really big to me for a "conceal" brush, I prefer it to apply all over color).

Did anyone notice that the names are written backwards or is that just me?

These look great, especially the rounded dome. I love the Essence of Beauty brushes I already have - looks like I'll be adding to that collection. Thanks for sharing! :)
