I bought this set to replace the finishing brush in the Eco Tools Backstage Vanity Brush set. My first finishing brush lasted years but is finally starting to shed. The brush in this set is smaller and narrow and would be good for small areas but not applying makeup to your entire face. The other brushes are also smaller than the ones that I already own, and I own and love many Eco Tools brushes. I wish I had known this before I made this purchase and could have saved myself some $$$.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
