I have just gotten this brush and, so far, it has surpassed what I was expecting. The brush is soft and thick, which really helps when applying foundation or bronzer. I have found it helpful when I mix my foundations up because when I smooth it out on my face it gives me an airbrushed look. Also, it doesn't shed when you wash it. And the grip helps you turn and catch those areas of your face you missed. I love this product and would recommend it to anyone.
