This is my favorite bronzer brush, and the best one I have ever used so far. I bought this for $10 which is a fair price, the fibers are very soft, it helps my bronzers go on very smoothly, and I can't say enough good things about this brush, I will be repurchasing again in the future.

This is a double-sided brush sold at pharmacy stores in the cosmetics section. One side is comparable to the MAC 187 stippling/skunk brush. The other is a normal dense blush brush, kinda like a MAC 129. Now for my take on it These are both decent brushes, they do the job. Obviously they are not MAC quality, but they are certainly not bad, and for $10 I think that it could be worth the price for most.
I really like the blush brush side, it is very dense and relatively soft, I actually use it to contour my cheeks more than for blush. The stippling brush is ok, it is not very dense but it is really soft.
I like to use the stippling side for my mineral makeup, and my cream-based makeup, mostly blushes and bronzers and it works well for that. I have been told that this type of brush is great for liquid foundation as well, but I do not use liquid foundation so I do not know for sure.
The one problem I had with this stippling brush was that when I washed it, there was weird green stuff coming out of the brush, which I assume is dye from the black bristles. It took about 8 washes with baby shampoo to get that crap out, GROSS!!! This is my only real hangup on the brush, and why I personally would not repurchase it.
All in all, it is a great alternative for a duo-fiber stippling brush if you don't want to shell out a lot of money and are willing to wash it a lot before you use it, and you get a blush brush too!
EDIT: Ok, I now hate this brush, it is going from 3 lippies to one. I rewashed the stippling brush and the white fibers dried a deep bright green. EEEEEEWWW!!!!!!!!!!!!! I put that on my face?!? Gross! DO NOT PURCHASE EVER!!!!!!
