I'm one of those people who used to apply make-up with their fingers too, (OMG right?) and after forcing myself to put on makeup like a grown up, I decided I need a basic brush set. I love this one. I probably don't use them 100% right, and I don't know their names, but I know my makeup goes on smoother, and looks better, so I'm happy. :] Love the tube too, because the last thing I need is 5 loose brushes.
