"Clippers Are Great!"
3 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

It has everything you need to get started. Clippers are fantastic, the brush is good. The paints however are mini canisters and you don't know what paint you have unless you remove the canister and find the label indented in the plastic. I'm not sure if it's intended but it seems the plastic glue was only half full.

If you're really new and starting out it's fine but you're probably better off getting the paint backs to start off they come with more useful brushes and normal sized paints. And Just buy the plastic glue and clippers separately.

"Absolutely Disgraceful"
1 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

ALL of the paints were less than half full. Some of the paints were 10% full. You heard that right, 10%. Absolutely disgraceful. The glue was VIRTUALLY EMPTY which is absolutely PATHETIC. The brush and the Clippers were pretty much the only things that worked properly and that was only because you couldn't screw that up without deliberately breaking it.

DO NOT BUY this item from Mighty Ape, it's absolutely terrible.

"Not what I was expecting"
3 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Brush is ok. Clippers are good. Paints all came half dry or empty. Not worth $50!
