These brushes are incredible quality for such a great price. They are basically a steal! I plan on doubling up, and then purchasing a set or two for my kit, once I start school. Definitely a great buy.
I can never have enough synthetic eye brushes so I grabbed this set from Bartell's at $8~ Woot. The case is kinda silly but the brushes are very nice. Nicely made; I love how long the ferrule is. The only brush I haven't totally figured out yet is the accent brush. I could use it for an inner crease highlight brush or maybe a small concealer brush, but I just haven't yet. Otherwise, the other brushes are definite essentials. The "eyeliner" is far too thick for my liner preference so I use it for undereye shadow. The others I use just like their names suggest! Fantastic set.
ELF brushes be gone!
I've been eager to try these brushes for a long time. They're amazing quality for a rather cheap price. I use the dome shadow brush for concealer; it buffs in it in beautifully. The base shadow brush is really fluffy, so it's great for sweeping an all over color or blending. The accent brush is so tiny, but effective for smudging and inner corner work. I love the angled brush for brows, it's also thick enough to apply a cut crease. Some people like rather small brushes for brows, but I have to fill so much of mine in that it's perfect. The liner brush is the only one I have issues with. It's rather thick to use for gel liner, and the feral it's wider/thicker that the bristles itself. It comes in contact with the eye before the actual brush does. It's still useful for the under eye. This is a great set for under $20.
Would have given 5 stars if it weren't for the liner and brow brushes.
I bought this set solely for the Deluxe Crease Brush and little detailer brush. The Deluxe Crease Brush is the BEST brush I've used to apply my under eye concealer. I could do without the liner and brow brushes. The liner brush is not thin enough to create a precise or sharp line and the brow brush is just too thick for me. I've used it to apply a light wash of a lighter brow powder when I'm done filling in my brows but aside from that, I've yet to find a use for this brush. Overall...I'd purchase this set again because the other three brushes are outstanding.
First brush set - some good, some bad.
Love some of these, never use the others. They're not very soft and I've realized I use bigger brushes rather than smaller for most things, so I hardly ever use some of them.

Excellent for Beginners and Professionals
Some of the best brushes I own are these Real Techniques brushes. Inexpensive yet incredibly soft and versatile brushes making for easy application for any cream, liquid and powder product. Great for beginners as each brush is named, but professionals would found each brush to be multi-functional. Before I bought these I would have used about 4 brushes for my face (not including eyes and lips) but now I would use between one and two depending on the look I am going for. These brushes act like luxury brushes without the luxury pricetag.
I purchased these brushes last week and I was contemplating returning them because I figured I already owned a few brushes and new brushes would not make much of a difference in my makeup application. I WAS WRONG!!! These brushes are simply amazing!!! If you are a beginner like I am, then these brushes are definitely for you!!!
Real techniques brushes are the best to me right now! i never stopped using them since i bought them, i think they're very high quality and so soft they just make my makeup so flawless <3
These brushes are really amazing and the price point is even better. This set it worth it for the dome-shaped blending brush alone! I live in Canada and we don't have Ulta here and the website doesn't ship internationally so I was lucky enough to find the LAST set of these brushes at an Ulta while I was visiting Syracuse, NY. I plan on picking up the other brushes the next time I'm in the US. Definitely a brush set worth looking into, especially if you are in need of some good basic starter items.
5 Pro-Quality Brushes for less then the price of 1
I love watching Pixwoo and when I found out she was coming out with her own make-up brush collection I knew I had to buy it. She does quality and great work that I knew her brushes would be the same and they are!!! This is currently my go to brushes for doing my eye makeup. I was planning on caving in and investing in MAC or Sigma brushes but then I found out about these. I no longer had to buy those "high-end" brushes that were going to cost me over $20 each. With this collection I got pro-quality brushes for $20 and 5 of them...Love them!
