I love this brush for patting on color right onto the lid. My mu artist taught me to pack color onto the brush and then to pat it directly onto the lid. It works particularly well with duochrome...

The 252 I have is an SE (came in the eye brush set with a black leather case), and like other reviewers have mentioned, this brush is of ENTIRELY different quality than the regular one. Mine is...

Not my favorite brush for applying concealer or eyeshadow. My Stila #5 beats this one for shadow placement - It is more dense and a better brush all around. I prefer synthetic brushes for applying...

I've really grown to appreciate this brush. I bought it and the 239 for eyeshadow at the same time on an SA's recommendation. I started using the 239 immediately, thought it was the perfect size...

This brush is good to pack on color from eyeshadows that aren't great texture, like parafait amour. The texture on that is crap. Otherwise, it's not a must have brush. I wouldn't repurchase.
