Although the colors are eye catching, the weight and texture of the handles is a bit off for me. They feel like my kids coloring brushes to the touch. They come with a pencil case which again, I will pass down to my child because I simply don't store brushes in pencil cases. Not exactly what I want from my makeup tools. However, they perform well. I Have no complaints there. I think in this set is all about the aesthetic. I love the fact it has a silicon tool that helps with placement of glitters and to smoke eyeliner. It also includes a "spoolie" to help correct messes when doing my makeup.
