I use to work only with snazaroo product until I met a professional painter whom recommended Kryvaline products. I decided to start with this small kit to get an overall sense of the quality of the paint - what a difference!! I thought I had no skills until I started using these products: this paint is a lot easier to play with for finer details. I've been really satisfied with the kit, which I would recommend for a beginner or as an introduction to face painting. Otherwise, these packs, though convenient aren't cost effective.
