I was very excited to receive this set! It arrived quickly and in good condition.While I wasn't expecting highend quality for such a low price, I was hoping;). First, the brush roll is great, I really like the layout, ease of cleaning and strong magnetic closure. It's a handsome and professional looking set, and I was happy to roll it out in front clients. The actual quality of the brushes themselves is what's lacking. Even the blush, powder and contour brushes are a bit scratchy- though the hairs are decently packed and full. Many of the eye brushes and smaller face brushes are super stiff, don't pick up or hold product well and are very- scratchy and not something you want near your eye! I've retired those to costume makeup duty, where they won't get daily use, or go near eyes. I do love both fan brushes, the large is soft and great with powders while the smaller (which at first looks at bit mangy, lol!) is great for whisking away undereye shadow fallout. Bristle shedding hasn't been major for any of these brushes, which is good..... but then onto to the ferrules. The metal part that clamps the bristles and holds them on the shaft, are very poorly glued and fall off! I have had this happen to MANY of these brushes, which I take very good care of and should never happen! All in all, I paid about $50 for the lot, and while I do use the larger face brushes, mostly they are back-ups. Good brushes are expensive, and starting out this set helped fill my arsenal. I would suggest going to the counters and trying brushes. You will learn what you like and need, and find yourself reaching for the same few again and again. Invest in individual, high quality brushes that you will use everyday for many years to come!
