I was quite hesitant to purchase this brush as I wasn't exactly sure what to use it for. But I'm glad I got it. This became my favorite highlighting brush as it applies highlighter precisely on the top of my cheekbones. Because of its tapered shape, it's also perfect for applying highlighter on other areas of my face such as the tip of my nose, chin, and above my brow bone. This brush also has the perfect size for applying setting powder on concealer under my eyes. This brush is really soft and mine hasn't shed yet after the second wash. I'd definitely recommend this brush to those who haven't found their perfect highlighting brush!
