If you have ever gotten any of the Stila look books, with 2 small blushes and 4 eye shadows, this brush is great. I got the Jade Bouquet book, and thought the 2 blush shades would work well as a blush and contour. The shape and size of this contour brush fit nicely into the smaller sized pans and the result was just what I wanted. For the price, this brush is a must have.
This is a great brush--very versatile. It's sized to be used as a cheek contour brush (which I'm sure it would do very wekk), but is also great for applying a light dusting over the eyelids or under the eyes (without overpowdering), appling a quick wash of shadows to the lids, blending blush, applying highlighter to the cheekbones, etc. This holds up well when washed, and only lost a couple of hairs on the first wash. If you always seem to need a brush and never seem to have quite the right one, this is probably it!
