Ordered Jan 6 and received Jan 9, Wich was early, but the vendor is only a few counties away from me. Arrived USPS envelope with bubble wrap inside (product box a little dented, but no damage whatsoever to actual product). Brushes came in individual plastic sleeves with the larger brushes also having netting to keep their form. Brushes themselves are stunning to look at, comfortable to hold while using, and extremely soft synthetic bristles (like e.l.f. or wet n wild when you see them, but softer). No shedding at all. Definitely on the fluffier side as apposed to dense in the larger brushes. Vice versa in the smaller brushes. Application is seamless. Overall: thrilled, ecstatic, in love with them and if the overwhelming 5 star ratings (not just mine) aren't already an indication, this set is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! what initially drew me to this set in particular is that it swapped the fan highlighter brush for a dome highlighter brush and included a matching lash/brow spooley as well as second one smaller and seemingly disposable one as gratuity which was in the USPS envelope.
