The brushes appear to be the right sizes but they were not as supple and comfortable feeling on skin as I hoped they'd be. I finally put them away and went back to using my Bare Minerals brushes. I'm disappointed. The large one might be a good shaving lotion brush.............???

I just wanted a well made set of brushes for my daily make-up. I am not a professional so I don't need 100 brushes...half of which I don't know what to use for...this is a perfect set for me...I was able to put on my makeup flawlessly without brushes, but now it's just perfect!

This is the worst product I have ever purchased. The shedding of the brushes is non-stop. The bigger the brush, the more they shed. These brushes are so defective, they are unusable.

Ladies (and a few Gents, I suppose), This little brush set is sassy and effective. And shut up - it's Italian! (Think Stacy London) Bella! The small stiff angle brush is just the ticket to smudging liner and/or eyeshadow on the inner rim of the eye (or under the eye) with no pieces of the brush falling off on your skin. If you are a humane person, Overstock noted this is a cruelty-free brush set so if your karma needs some revving up, do Mother Earth a solid and purchase one today - the holidays are coming up. I use this set instead of the overpriced and poorly made department story brands, who now have their brushes made in China (even Chanel!).
...this set sheds like crazy. I guess you have to pay much more to find a brush set that doesn't leave pieces of black bristle all over your face when you're done applying powder or blush. It was a disappointment...especially for the price. I could've paid less at a local discount store or pharmacy for brushes that shed.
The biggest plus about these brushes is that they fit perfectly in my large Mary Kay compact. Yes, there is an occaisional shedding. It's not bad. The brushes are on the stiffer side. I read that stiffer brushes pick up more make up for a deep color application. The flat angled brush is great for tightlining. The big fluffy brush is great for putting on bronzer powder. The blush brush does a great job controuring. I use the eye shadow brushes for contouring a smokey look and blending.
These brushes are definitely not worth the money I paid for them. One of them broke just days after receiving them. They shed like crazy (as most new brushes do in the beginning) but I have had them for months and they still lose hair on a daily basis. I've gone back to my old brushes at this point and keep these in my car in case I am desperate and need a brush at the last minute. Some pros about Overstock.com (not the product itself): Arrived very quickly. Packaged nicely. Got these on a free shipping weekend =)
I love the quality of the brushes. I read somewhere some one said it smelt and another said it was too short, so the first thing I did when it arrived was sniff at it (you know like my dachie does when I put something on her plate that she doesn't recognize). Anyways, either I have an insensitive nose or I got lucky - cos I got only the faintest of faint whiff of something (and I sniffed real hard!!!). Secondly, its NOT too short, I personally like the length - the handle is3" and overall length for is brush is approx. 4.5" As I said I love the brushes - the case while is smartly designed (there is a little zippered section for you to put whatever), but feels and looks really cheap. I do not care though cos I LOVE THE BRUSHES. So, 5 stars for the brushes, and take away one cos of the case.
I bought this as an impulse purchase and should have read more about it. Mini means that the handles are VERY short. I have big hands, so my rating of this product is only mediocre. The brushes are nice, the pouch is cheap. They're not returnable.
