This brush is not worth the large price. Mine has shed quite a bit and has not held its shape as well as other brands, such as MAC and Trish McEvoy. I like the Trish brush for blush much better.
Generally, I'm a huge fan of the Chantecaille line (especially the lipglosses, blushes, and eyeshadows). But this brush was a big disappointment. It is soft on the skin and doesn't scratch. But it is very flat so it doesnt apply blush very well on my round face. Also, it doesn't blend well (at least not for its price of over $50!). It works better as a highlighting brush but I could find something just as good for that price for half the price. Or maybe my KA powder brush has spoiled me into thinking that all brushes are going to be like that. Whatever it is, this Chantecaille one is not round and does not help me apply blush properly.
