Gorgeous brush, just soft enough on the skin with the stiffness to grab pwoders and put them right where you need them, i.e. on brows and using dark powders for lining or shimmers for highlighting. I use for brows with the Vincent Longo bi-brow powder (I don't use the pomade side often and wouldn't recommend putting creams on this natural hair brush anyway). Also has a gorgeous finish to the handle and doesn't slip.
this brush is amazing for wet-lining, with eyeshadow, cake liner, gel liner, cream liner...you name it! you get a fine, fine line without floppy bristles like the MAC 210, and yet it doesn't feel like you're going to poke yourself with stiff bristles, either. the handle is so lightweight! amazing, plus nice short handle length, too. this is the same price as the Smashbox 8 & PD e/l brush but is much finer. love this!!
