This is an awesome brush set, and perfect for travel. We're on a trip at a beach resort. Not knowing what to expect in advance, except knowing that we'd be getting dressed up at night, and involved in a lot of beach activities during the day, this seemed like the perfect brush set to take along. I knew I'd be changing make up a lot. I wanted this set specifically because the brushes are anti-bacterial and because they're packed in a travel case specifically for them. It's a great set of seven high quality brushes. The neat thing about this anti-bacterial brushes, is that unlike some other anti-bacterial brushes which use chemicals that can cause allergic reactions, these brushes are also hypo-allergenic, so they should be good for everyone.
This set includes a great powder brush, an eye shadow brush that angled, so it's perfect also for contouring, an eye blender brush which is great for shadow, a brush that can be used for either as a liner for lips or eyes (but please don't use it for both without cleaning it well), and a brow brush/lash comb combo. There's also a foundation brush. It also comes in a great case, which folds up to protect my brushes. My brushes stay right in place no matter if my suitcase ends up sideways or upside down, once it's in the hands of the airlines.
The first time I traveled with make up brushes, years ago, I packed them in a brush case similar to a pencil case. I didn't realize that a more specialized case would protect the brushes better. Some of those brushes in the brush case (pencil case) became crushed and the bristles deformed from laying on top of each other, while a couple, which apparently ended up upended when the luggage was stored in the baggage compartment of the plane, fanned out and wouldn't revert back to their original shape. I couldn't use them again. Since then, I've always protected my brushes by storing them in an appropriate brush case. Spending a little more on a set like this saves over the life of the brush. In this specific situation, however, this set is a great value, with an excellent protective case and the seven brushes all for $60. You can't beat that price. The brushes, in addition to being hypo-allergenic, and antibacterial, are also top notch make up brushes.
Although this set is, in part, made for travel, this is really the only set of brushes anyone needs for regular everyday makeup application. You can add an occasional brush here and there to build up your brush collection as needed, but this set has all the basics you need. In addition, this is a really healthy set of brushes to travel with. Many people are concerned about bacteria lurking in strange hotel/resort rooms, since nobody knows how well the rooms are cleaned in advance and kept clean during a hotel stay. I was also somewhat concerned because I was told to expect very humid hot conditions which is the ideal environment for bacteria growth. (Fortunately, it hasn't been as hot or humid as anticipated). I want to do everything in my power not to let my brushes become contaminated with any germs. Even though I clean my brushes regularly, that doesn't automatically guarantee that bacteria won't talk hold on a brush. That's why taking this set of antibacterial brushes was important to me. (And before anyone assumes I'm overreacting, I know of people who have gotten fairly bad eye infections while on trips and one who ended up in the hospital twice while on vacation because of an eye problem contracted while on a trip).
I'm really pleased with this set of brushes. The brushes have performed well and are top quality. You can't beat the price. Seven professional quality brushes with ideal bristles, and a great case suitable for home or travel. I highly recommend this set.
