I have been a professional makeup artist for many years. The description for this brush set is Inaccurate. It claims the brushes are goat and badger hair, but upon inspection after they arrived at my house, they are very obviously a synthetic fiber. The brushes all have the same texture and they shouldn't. For example: fan brushes should be fairly stiff while a blush or powder brush should have a lot more give. Several of the brushes are unusable. The two blush brushes and the powder brushes are too flat (not puffy enough)for the proper blending The fan brushes are downright floppy rendering them useless. The flat eyeliner brush should have a much thinner tip along the width. Most of the eye shadow brushes have the wrong shape and texture for blending. They should be poofier. Instead, they are flat like they have been in between the pages of a closed book for several days. And the few brushes that are functional, I would have done better price wise to buy them piecemeal at target. The only demographic this set is practical for are adolescent girls who are just learning. Other than that I DO NOT recommend this product for anyone who is serious about makeup. The word 'professional' should not be in the headline for this set.
