I've been using this brush for several months and have grown to truly appreciate it. It's a slightly-tapered, flat brush with somewhat stiff bristles. And it's fairly small. So I can really work concealer into tight areas like the corners of my eyes and around my nose. It's also good for dabbing small amounts of concealer onto a few dark marks on my cheeks. I wash it with soap & water after each use, and it hasn't lost any bristles. It still looks like new. The brush is nothing fancy to look at but certainly gets the job done. A great buy for about $14 USD.

This brush does a decent job of blending out liquid foundation. But . . . the glue holding the bristles in place does not last. I use parian sprit to clean my brushes, and don't let them soak. Did a batch of cleaning including my new F80. Chunks came out of the F80 after drying, and my other brushes were fine. Despite having bought the Sigma from a specialist on-line retailer (ie, not an Amazon or eBay fake), thought I must have had a dud. So bought a second one - again, genuine retailer. This time I didn't use the parian spirt - gave it a twirl through olive oil/dishwash ensuring I didn't soak the ferrule, rinsed in lukewarm water and hung it upside down to dry. The whole head of bristles came out after it had dried. As I said, I've cleaned plenty of brushes, and this is the only one to ever do this. The brush is so thick that I'm assuming what must be a very quick capillary action sucks the cleaning liquid straight up into the ferrule. After having wasted money twice, I'll stick with my Real Techniques in future.

Spot conceal is something that takes the most time during my makeup routine. I have tried so many blending brushes for concealers, including eye blending brushes, concealer specific blending brushes, face brushes, etc. The problem that I have had with other brushes is that it sweeps away too much product and takes the pigment off the spots. With that said, sometimes pressing your finger into the spot works the best. However, I feel like too much product end up on my fingertips when I do that. This is where this brush solves my spot concealing problems.Pros:Great quality, has not shed after a few washesDenseSoftFlawless finish, doesn't streak or leave brush marks.Cons:Expensive for a small brushThis brush gives me a flawless finish with spot concealing. I dab a tiny dot of highly pigmented concealer on the blemish. To keep the concealer locked in, I swirl and tap away some loose powder on the P80 brush before blending, then I stipple/pat the brush onto the spot to blend out harsh edges. I usually don't sweep or buff because that would take the product too far away from the spot itself. Other uses of this blush include blending foundation under my nose and hard to get areas where there is dispersed redness. While I prefer a bigger flat top kabuki for foundation in general, I could use this brush for foundation if I'm desperate (but it would take longer to blend everything out).I picked this up on sale so I didn't pay near the retail price of $20.00. I would pay $20 for it, but they so on sale a lot, so don't pay full price for it.

I love this brush!The E30 is indeed a pencil brush; the soft but firm synthetic bristles are shaped into a pointed tip that allows for easy precise placement of powder or cream.The E30 is ideal for using powder eyeshadow to line the eyes. I wish I'd bought this one years ago!

This was a game changer for me. I had used lots and lots of makeup brushes but none of them work as well at blending eyeshadow as this! I now have 2, and take them on vacation with me they are so important!
