What you can do is go to www.maccosmetics.com and check out their brushes, see if any you have are the same, and see what THEY use them for.

I use my fan brush to put a little glittery highlight powder on the tops of my cheeks...

ok, left to right:

-brow brush/comb

-mascara wand

-looks like a sponge applicator..? is it? if it is, it helps apply more a mount of color

-angled liner brush. i like angled liners to line my eyes. easier, and faster since it applies to more surface area.

-fine point liner. good for lining when using a cream/gel based liners

-looks like it could be a lip brush, or a bigger eye liner brush, can't tell.

-fan brush. good for dusting stuff on your face or dusting stuff OFF of your face

-small fluffy brush.

-medium fluffy brush

-large fluffy brush.

you can use either one of those to use a wash of a color. a wash is when you apply a color all over your eye lid.

the small can be used in the crease/outer v area to apply color more densely.

the medium can be used in the crease outer v

the medium and large fluffy ones you can use to help blend it out.

-small powder/blush brush

-large powder brush for powder foundations

hope that helps!

I have heard of Jordana! They make eyeliners and lip pencils, you can usually find them in a Walgreens... I had no clue they made brushes...

Let us know how they are over the long run! i.e. if any bristles fall out or they get messed up easily!

Hmm, u're tempting me to buy a set. But its too bad that I do not have a credit card or I might just rush out to get it !
