This is a good basic set, and I loved that it was made in the USA, but they're only good until you wash them properly. The hair starts to fall out and they smell terrible, they barely get back to their original shape without the help of a brush guard or something to keep them reshaped. I liked them at first, but now I'm in the market again to buy a new set and I'm willing to spend a little more money. Honestly the ecotools brushes are better than these. The bag is terrible, I would get rid of it immediately. As an application it's fine, but cleaning them is a pain and it's not worth it to me.
