If i saw it too, for that price i would certainly buy it! Too bad i live in Portugal and most of the things never get here. We donīt even have Shu Uemura, Stila or Benefit...
it's a limited edition set. it actually includes more brushes than the original assortment. and i love the case, it's very chic. hmm, if you really want it, maybe we can arrange for something offline if you like; i.e. i can buy one & send it over. message me for details.

i'm not a total expert on brushes and makeup tools but one thing i know from recieveing some pretty darn good brushes from clinique was that by using good quality brushes, they help you blend the makeup on your face. bad brushes have the tendancy to give you a blotchy un-smooth effect, while nice brushes apply makeup evenly. and with different brushes you can get different effects... for i.e. big fat brushes can be used if you want something on a large area or want to apply it lightly, while eyeshadow brushes can be used for smaller places... and so on
mac has good eye brushes, I find that many of the face ones shed. The end all of makeup brushes is the Kevyn Aucoin set-they are beautiful and outstanding quality, but expensive. Hoping to get them for Christmas!
2nd Trish McEvoy's brushes & a huge rave for Kevyn Aucoin's set. Anna Sui & Fresh make some nice brushes as well. Skin Alison Rafaelle's Kabuki brush gets an honorable mention for its extreme softness & fullness. I don't have the Sonia Kashuk set that's pictured, but have tried others & definitely think they're good for the price.
