I love this brush. Its handle is long and clear and very lightweight. I use this for shadow lining and precise contour applications. Not sure if its synethic or real hair bristles. I've washed it about a handful of times now and no shedding or losing its shape. A good investment.
This has a compact head and I use it for placing small amounts of shadow exactly where I want it. Its great for the contouring the eye too, it fits right in nicely. With a bigger brush I used to go too high or wide before but now I've get it neat and under control. I like the weight and feel of these brushes, so airy light. I reach this brush more often than my MAC 219 brush.
