I received these 2 brushes as a set in my Tribe Beauty Box and they have quickly become my favorite blending brushes!! I find myself grabbing for these brushes more so than my Morphe brushes or some of my Luxie brushes!! These brushes are so economical for most budgets and feel along the lines of a luxurious expensive brand of brushes!! I have not experienced any shedding of these brushes!! They wash up beautifully and go right back into shape after washing them and they dry!! Good brushes and worth going out and buying!! I highly recommend these brushes!!
