This brush is one of my favourites in the Category of Japanese brushes - it works wonderful to apply shadow to the upper corner of the crease and slowly working further in the crease. It's soft and gentle to my eyelid, not to mention the craftsmanship in this brush, simply lovely.
I was a bit worried this brush would be too big and floppy, but I had to change my mind after one second. It has a nice point and it holds its shape pretty well, according to the amount of pressure you use, you can be more precise and use the tip to apply transition colours, or you can push a bit more and blend everything effortlessly. You can definitely tell it's not made entirely of squirrel hairs only, but it's not a downside in this case as it has more structure and can deposit more colour and blend it better than a 100% squirrel brush would do. A million time better in quality and functionality than the MAC 224
I choose this CMP527 brush as I have a lot of eyelid space and this size is great for blending and applying transition colors. I love it for mid-tone eyeshadows and the blend of squirrel/pony helps to deposit a perfect soft wash without being too sheer and amazingly, no harsh lines. This is soft but not as soft as pure squirrel or some goat brushes. Its tips are soft while the side is slightly scratchier. Comparing this with my other Japanese brushes, this brush is very similar, slight shorter, to Hakuhodo J5522. Haku is fuller, more tapered and pointier. After wash, the CMP527 is closer in shape to Wagne Goss 19 which is smaller. This is a very well-designed brush with great craftsmanship; but it's not the softest. I feel other makers like Koyudo & Chiku have excellent or even better brushes. However, this is a very unique brush due to the squirrel/ pony blend and it excels to serve specific purpose.
I use this brush for the finishing touches in my eye make-up, when I need to seamlessly blend eyeshadows. It does the job very well thanks to a perfect balance between softness and firmness. The brush is also quite large but has a pointed tip, which makes it comfortabe to use both on the mobile lid and in the crease.
