Okay, so, maybe it's just me, but I hate how tapered this brush is. I have such a hard time collecting pigment on this brush. I've used various blushes with this brush; from Milani (actually the blush in the picture) to Nars to elf, and I still don't like it. Maybe I'll give it another try. I will say this however, it's very soft and is a very cute looking brush!
