My best friend gave this set to me for Christmas, and the brushes are really good! I only own a couple other Sonia Kashuk brushes, so I don't have much to compare them to, but they are very soft, the bristles are smooth, and the eye brushes are wonderful for blending and getting into the crease. I have large-ish eyes, and I've found a lot of brushes to be too small for blending out my crease...these work perfectly. The second to smallest eyeshadow brush I use for my concealer, and it's never looked better.
These brushes are well designed, soft, and very useful. The clutch case is cute and functional!
