Its shape is very similar to T-4 but it's denser and made of grey squirrel/goat mix, so the softness of both brushes is the same. Very versatile. I can use it for blush, bronzer, contour as well as touch up on the T-zone, not for highlighting because it's a little bit too dense. Overall, a great multitask brush for beginners.

I find that some of the face brushes in the GSN series are a little large for there designated use and work perfectly for the next feature up. For example, the GSN-3 is perfect for all over powder and the GSN-4 is perfect as a cheek brush. The squirrel hair used in this brush is perfect for anyone with sensitive skin. It's not as soft as the Z series however that is not a bad thing. The hair is perfect for picking up blush and applying the perfect amount!
Even though this brush is classified as a highlighting one, I often use it as a cheek brush. It's relatively bigger and denser than other highlighting brushes and if you do use it for highlighting, remember to use it with a finely milled powder such as Charlotte Tilbury Firmstar Bronze, rather than the bling bling Becca Champagne Pop. Whatever the purpose it's still a great brush, blend effortlessly and perfectly, the bristle are very soft and gentle on the skin! For the price I find it's a reasonable brush for the quality. Great for beginners too!
The brush head is smaller than I expected, but I think it's actually perfect to contour the cheeks. It fits right into the hollow of the cheeks.
Squirrel and goat blend makes for an efficient brush. Softer than full goat, not as soft as the Z-series. This is a great brush all-around for medium pigmented blushes and normal to combination skin.
