I've had this brush for over 2 years and I use it for my powder/liquid foundations. IT is the softest brush I've ever come across and sturdy too! I have washed the living heck out of this (every morning after I use it) and it has not shed one bit! It blends beautifully and effortlessly!
I use this after applying all of my makeup. It softens the lines of the makeup and blush and makes them look natural and polished. It makes my makeup look airbrushed. The brush is very soft but quite dense. Considering what some companies charge for brushes, this one is quite reasonable at about $28, especially if you get it during a Meow sale.
