I bought this brush because it was pure Kollinsky Sable and I just couldn't resist owning it, and it has turned out to be my favourite brush. The hairs are SO soft and feel really luxurious. I use it for crease work and it picks up shadow well and places the colour very smoothly. My other sable shadow brushes feel cheap and scratchy compared to this one.
Made of natural bristles with wodden handles. Similar to stila's #9. a lovely brush that can work for sweeping a wash of colour over eye but best used for intricate crease / contour work since the bristles are packed pretty firm for controlled placement of eyeshadow. The bristles are very soft on your skin, grab colour and deposit the eyeshadow evenly on lids. No shedding at all. Weirdest thing is it dries up overnight when i wash it and i can use the brush the next morning.
Only regret was that i didnt pick an extra piece especailly since it was going at half price at the department store.
