These brushes are extremely coarse--ahh, just like porcupine bristles on my skin! The set includes lip, eyeshadow, powder, eyeliner, and brow/lash brushes in a handy zip-close case. The booklet suckered me in. However, it did not explain that the brushes are polyester fibers, thus the rough feel. The only reason I rated it a 2 is because I sort of like the case they came in. I guess for $8 you get what you paid for.
