Very soft ,comfortable and the size of the bristles are perfect,I have small to medium lid space and these all work really well with application and blending. My favorite is the shader brush because it works for crease work and application of eye shadow. I definitely recommend these and I will be buying more in the future,this was my first set from this brand and I'm really happy with them. Plus the colors and themes are beautiful and fun to use. I hope they keep making more in different styles.
