Unfortunately a few of the brushes arrived with flyaway hairs caused during transit. However the quality of the undamaged brushes is actually quite good. For the price, there's a good number of different sizes and shapes. I have a big soft spot for the brush roll as it is really very handy for brush storage, especially if you plan to paint outdoors or transport your brushes to a different location.
The brushes feel nice in the hand and do a good job transferring paint to canvas or paper. I tested these with acrylic paints, but they work with all kinds, just keep in mind that you will need to keep your brushes separate and not use the same brushes for different mediums.
They are sealed for transport so they'll arrive with a coating, make sure to wet them and gently ease them back and forth to remove the coating. Trying to mash the brush downwards will damage the hairs.
I would recommend these for beginner or young artists, looking for an all round set to get the hang of painting, but there's definitely some room for improvements in protecting the bristles to keep them from damage.
