I actually am impressed by these little guys. I'm not a professional make up artist, but I do love great makeup. I use Mac, clinique, dior, and shiesedo products, and these brushes are convenient, great little bushes. I especially enjoy the little case they come in. I'm super unorganized in my purse, and the little side zipper pocket helps with keeping my eyeshadow with the set. I used to have a problem with brushes being just loose in my purse, but now they stay tightly in place. They are handy, and are great for any normal, make up wearing girl!
