Well, upon arrival, I realized I was right. They are JUST like the studio line brushes from ELF. Namely, the stipple and kabuki brushes. Very soft to the touch, white, with a black tip, and minimal shedding. I think one piece fell off the entire time I used them. I'm really not the type to splurge on brushes. Granted, i've never used a $20 dollar brush and I could be converted to the dark side, but the cheaper brushes seem to work fine for me. Not ALL cheap brushes mind you, i've had my share of horrible ones, but a few places have nice ones.
The case is really nice and very durable from what I feel and see. The brushes themselves look like they will hold up well, but only time will tell. I am very impressed with these. Usually a case alone is more than the full price of both.
I'm sad to say that these brushes are not around anymore. 599fashion tends to carry cute things for a short time, before they are snagged. However, I DID see a leopard print you may want to check out here! http://www.599fashion.com/BEAUTY_c_127.html
These colors were fun to work with and I think i'll be trying out more bright colors in the future, in a more intricate fashion.
Another cute steal I wanted to share with you was this compact mirror from my local Dollar Tree. How lovely is this? There are two mirrors inside. One is regular and one is for closeup touches. I thought this was a really nice steal for just a dollar. I love the throw back 50's look to it. Back then it was all about pink and flowers. I might need to go buy backups, but it seems like the hinge is pretty tightly screwed and it won't give any time soon. These would make a nice addition to any beauty gift!
