For some context, I ordered 5 (five) sets of the Prismatic Collection; the bold eye, smokey eye, 10 piece collection,3 piece face base, and 3 piece radiance brush kits. In general, these brushes look beautiful aesthetically, have their weight balanced well, and perform to expectations. I love the way they feel, pick up, distribute and apply my make-up.
However, due to being ill-placed in the plastic form packaging, two of the brushes in this kit arrived badly misshapen. After washing and reshaping twice, two of them, in this kit alone, remain very misshapen.
The smokey eye kit arrived the same day with three of the brushes similarly misshapen and resistant to washing and reshaping.
The Face Base, 10 piece, and Radiance kits arrived with a small variety of the brushes ill-placed in the plastic shipping form, but not misshapen enough to require washing and reshaping. Perhaps the length of time the brushes spend sitting improperly in the plastic form has something to do with this. If I were to rate this collection of brushes as a whole, it would be more like 4 stars, but having two sets (including this particular set) arrive with unusable brushes is not acceptable for this customer.
