Let's get it out of the way... this brush is ridiculously expensive. But if you want to invest in a great brush, get this and you will not regret it!
The quality is amazing. No shedding. Luxuriously soft, dense bristles. Cleans like a dream. It's smaller and lighter than I thought it would be, but it's built solid, and I feel like it will be in my lineup for years to come. The size and shape turns out to be perfect for multitasking.
I use this with my liquid foundation, contouring cream, powder bronzer, gel blush, powder blush, and finishing powder.... all in a row! It wipes clean in a flash, and I'm on to the next product. Then, I buff it all to a beautiful, natural finish. I use it with my Dior Airflash, tinted moisturizer, beauty balm, and it works equally well with all of them. I feel like the product goes so much further, and really gives me my money's worth for foundation, regardless if it's drugstore or high-end.
After trying this brush, I intend to try more Hourglass brushes!
