I sold my Artis 10 brush set to get these, and I'm very impressed. The fiber is similar in that it's antibacterial, very fine, doesn't waste product, and blends well. I loved the Artis larger brushes but all the smaller were clunky to use, not precise at all. This set has all the smaller eye brushes with the comparable fiber for the larger brushes. I wish they had more colors like they used to. Five stars thus far, time will tell how they wear.
