Simply Essential brushes, $15.99 and $26.99
Priced by size, these soft, synthetic brushes helpfully have the purpose printed on the handle.

Look after them and they will last, but remember, good as these look standing upright to show off the rose gold trim, if you’ve just washed them do preserve the glue holding them together by lying them flat to dry.
