I bought this set about three weeks ago (amazed to have found them in South Africa, finally!), and I really love them! They are so so well priced and I find them very easy to work with. Cruelty-free is an added bonus! I would recommend these brushes to anyone, although I'm not sure how professional they are. I don't know much about make-up brushes, but I have brushes from MAC and Inglot, and my Eco Tools brushes most certainly compare well.
I love Ecotools and all their products. This brush set is my favorite because of the Duo Fiber Finishing Brush. Ecotools' brushes are very soft and aesthetically pleasing, they work really well too. They are very affordable and they have an array of brushes for different uses. They are very durable as they do not shed or lose their color after countless cleansing. My ecotools brushes are my favorite in my collection and I'm very happy with them. The best part about these brushes is that they are eco-friendly and cruelty free.
This set is worth it for the duofiber brush alone

The duo-fiber brush (aka skunk brush) in this set is awesome. It’s super soft yet it’s very full so it’s able to be used as a brush for finishing powders or glow powders to highlight your face. The blush brush is as nice as the other ones that I have from ecoTools. The Angled crease brush is awesome because it has a longer handle than the other ones I own. The only brush I’m not crazy about in this set is the lash and brow groomer. For me personally, I need very tiny teeth to brush through my lashes, typically the sort of teeth found on a metal lash comb. I think it might have been better in this set to include a bent eyeliner brush or an all over shadow brush.
I love ecoTools for making affordable, quality, cruelty free brushes. This set is no exception.
