To me, this is an odd brush for the following reasons: although it is saikoho, its not as soft and silky as my other saikoho brushes (some of them cheaper in fact), the hairs can also feel a bit prickly during application, the goat hairs pick up more color so its best for less pigmented blush - perhaps I just have not mastered the use of this shape of brush and seem to feel more at home with a paddle shape.

The high density volume spreads the powder, blush evenly on the skin and dim your outline simultaneously. Rounded, densely packed bristles with a flat top is perfect for applying blush, highlighters, loose and compact powders and also for slight contouring. It deposits just the right amount of pigment to the cheek for either a soft or dramatic look. Experience the gentle touch with this brush.
Usage: Blush, Powder, Highlighting / Softness (degree 1-10): 8

T4 has a similar shape and softness as Koyomo blush, but T4 is a bit denser and shorter hair. If you are thinking one of them, consider your skin type. Choose T4 you're dry skin. It doesn't pick too much powder so you won't look "powdery". Vice versa.
I absolutely love this brush, round and fluffy like a cotton ball, although it's not dense as I expect. The hair is also softer than the other Takumi brushes that I have. I often use it for setting powder and blush. Highly recommended!
The brush is great, but I expected to like it a little more. To me, it's a little too soft to be used for blush. I think it would work a little better for applying powder. The hair is super soft the shape is great, but I wish it was a little denser.
I had this brush for a couple of months before it found a place in my every day makeup regime. However, once I discovered how great it was for directional application of blush, I started to use it daily. Now I am waiting to purchase several more brushes from the Takumi series -- I am likely to purchase brushes for the application of eye color since I prefer to use Canadian squirrel or gray squirrel for the application of foundation to get a more diffuse look. The price is incredible for the quality of brush you receive. The design is very clean and modern, and you only have to touch the brush hair very lightly to the makeup to get a deep, nuanced application of blush. I recommend this for any beginner, as well as advanced users like me. Everyone should have at least one Takumi brush to make their collection complete. It's an exceptionally good deal for a superbly designed, high quality goat hair brush.
