I use BE foundation with this, provide medium coverage. arm movment needed is larger than a small kabuki brush. my arms are tired after using this brush. I would prefer the flat top over this one according the result and effort. it did shedd a little, but not much.
This is a limited edition brush only. It has a large kabuki brush head. It as a small bamboo handle. And, I have experienced a bit of shedding with it as well.
The hairs on the brush are very soft. It really helps tp provide more coverage to the face, when using mineral powder foundations. And, it is great for buffing as well.
