This brush has the same hair, shape and density as the BP018 for double the price, obviously due to the special handle. It it totally worth it if you love the yakusuqi luxury. Otherwise, i highly suggest to go for BP018 or even nicer version the Gray Squirrel Blush brush with red handle in the collectible collection which is also the same brush and same price as BP018. i have them all three land love each of them but if you have one, you dont really need the other.
