I'd say that these are indeed high quality brushes. I believe, the quality of brushes matters a lot no matter how good you are, you won't be able to deliver perfectly if the brushes you've used aren't good enough (at least that's what I have experienced).
The brushes are soft and really fun to work with. The container especially is very useful. I have never owned any brush set that would come in a container like this. I love it because I can carry it anywhere around without having to worry about where I'd keep them safe. I love the color and the packaging, it is "COOL". The brushes are easy to clean and I did not notice any shedding except when F40 came, I noticed some shedding but that didn't keep on happening.
The funny thing that I noticed about some brushes (with natural bristles) is the smell. They smell like "goat" and honestly, this is not the kind of smell anybody would like. But don't you worry because after washing them three to four times, the weird smell was gone.
My favorite brushes are E40, E65, E55 and F30.
Overall, I love this kit - very handy and fun. The Make Me Cool 12 Brush kit is priced $99. You can get yours from Sigma's website HERE. Sigma ships worldwide.
