Unlike the review below, I did not find this to be anything special. In fact, I found it subpar to cheaper brushes like Ecotools and Artist of Makeup (zukreat line). It leaves harsh edges no matter how you try to work it (I have been doing makeup for a long time so I know it is not user error) because of the flatness. It needs to be thicker, and more rounded on the sides, so as not to leave that very embarrassing line of demarcation, which does not even blend away with other brushes properly. I really don't use this at all anymore, which sucks. Highlighter does need that edge depending on the type of face, so it also depends on your face. I already have quite stark cheekbones and round cheeks so that harshness looks very silly on me, I need something fluffier and rounded. This would work well on thinner cheeks/faces, or people who do want to bring out that angle more, I suppose. I don't like the hair used on this either.

This brush is exceptional. It reminds me of a Shu Uemera my mom had in her professional makeup kit from about 15-20 years ago, when he was still designing and overseeing things. That brush was incredible, not too bulky, slightly angled- it would glide around the face like a dream, expanding and snapping back into its shape as it found its way effortlessly around the contours of the face.Well, THIS brush is exactly like that. It's like it's following the Tao or something! It is insanely SOFT making it so soothing that I want to glide it all over my skin. The contoured shape makes it perfect for placing powder or or blush anywhere you'd like. It's not too thick or bulky so it can go all around the eyes and around nostrils, but it is plush enough for full face coverage as well. You can be precise or broad strokes. I had a feeling about this brush and I was right. I'm in heaven and telling all of my colleagues that it is a MUST HAVE. Absolute LUXURY at a very affordable price point. I will have this for the rest of my life. (I am a professional makeup artist based in New York City)
