This is a large blush brush. It is extremely soft and full. Needed to wash it twice when I got it because it had a funny smell and there was some dye run-off. After that it was fine. Has lost a couple of short hairs, but it is still fairly new. Think that will stop after it has been washed a few more times. I have been using this to apply NYX cream blushes and it works beautifully for this. A really nice brush. Would recommend. UPDATE: Decided to order another one of these and it's completely different - longer handle, and smaller brush. Maybe 2/3rds the size. No funny smell, either. I like this one as well - gives me more controlled application. Crappy that you can't rely on ordering the same brush and actually getting the same brush, though. They both have "C106 Pointed Dome" on their handles. Still, I love Coastal Scents brushes!
