I bought mine for around $5 which was a great deal for so many brushes. I have used mine on a daily basis for 9 months. All of the brushes have held up except for the blush brush. I use mine for bronzer and some of the bristles have started to come loose and get on my face. For that reason, I use that brush sparingly. But it is completely understandable since they only cost $5. Hope that helps!
