Holding this in my hand makes me feel like I have a fine, mechanical, architectural pencil--a precision instrument and I'm about to make a final draft. It is a beautiful, classy black metal (no logo or name on it). Initially, I didn't care for the tapered brush, but now I find it provides the best application. Its only downside is the cap does not fit on the end. So you have to hang onto it while you're using it. I can tell I will have this and use it for a super long time. No regrets on spending the $.
PROS: a retractable lip brush, polygonal shape allows for firm grip, applies lipstick well; COMMENTS: tapered brush head
This comes in a sleek black retractable tube. It's the perfect size for my purse. The brush is nice and soft.
