Bought this set for my GF as the sparkly case her R&L Siam Gems (which are no longer sold, but all 4 sets I purchased are still going strong) case is starting to get a little tattered from travel... So I got this one for her. The durable case protects the brushes perfectly in her suitcase/bag, she said they work wonderfully! Colors are all so pretty, they're super soft. Exactly meets her needs.
