Super duper soft pencil brush so maybe not be firm enough if you prefer a stiffer one, or a sharp look than the soft smokey lower lash look. It softened a bit more after washing too. I like it because it does not hurt my lower lash line when used for lining shadows or lightly blending out harsh lines.

Very soft and pointy! My 1st encounter of pencil brush! Am loving it for putting crease color. Gentle and yet pick up good amount of color! My eyeshadow application is so smooth & perfect!
Do not know why, when I used on the eyelids, I feel a little tingling. I feel a little disappointed......
If I could give this 10 stars I would! I think the Z series has really spoilt me now and I really just can't use any other brush ever. I had the MAC 219 pencil brush for years and the Z 10 has changed my life. It's bristles are longer than the 219 and if I rate the Z 10 100% on the softness scale then the MAC 219 would be in the negative range. It's scratchy for the under eye while the Z 10 feels like clouds on my under eye. People talk about the Z 10 being less precise but I don't know what kind of precision they're talking about, the Z 10 does a brilliant job because the squirrel hair picks up and applies enough product for my liking. It does not smear or spread so for my it is 100% precise as well. There is no other pencil brush out there by any brand in the world that can compare with this brush. My holy grail and best brush ever!
This is the softest pencil brush I have ever used. It's a bit bigger than I expected but still easy to use because of the point on this brush. I just adore it.
