I took a gamble and bought this set on ebay about 6 weeks ago. They have been washed weekly and all used daily and have not moulted at all. They are synthetic so really good for liquids - the flat head kabuki is great for foundation. They are less than £7 for the set and arrived within a week. I think they were worth the gamble. http://pages.ebay.com/link/?nav=item.view&alt=web&id=201343672143&globalID=EBAY-GB
My brush collection was full of Benefit, MAC, Real Techniques and the odd Chanel brush but I just wanted some others so gave them a go and I use them daily now as they are actually so good. Hopefully they will work for you.
