I was originally debating between this set, and the Antonym Travel Brush Set and I'm glad I decided to go with this one even though I generally prefer light colored bristles so I can see the product I'm putting on better. As a cosmetologist I've used a lot of different brushes and sets and I have to say that this is definitely comparable to the top of the line products like Mac. Bristles are nice and soft and pick up product really well. They are all lightweight as well which I find to be really nice in helping heavy handed people not apply too much.
Overall it's a great set at a great value.
