Love It...So glad...BEST BRUSH EVER...The only thing I will say is that I feel like the shape is very similar to the Real Techniques Expert Face Brush and I think that one does just as good of a job and it's way cheaper (and lasts a very long time), so if you're looking for a cheaper option I'd go with that one but I definitely don't think this is a bad investment.

love it...IN LOVE...This line of brushes are fantastic...The only con about this brush for some (though not an issue for me) is it's length - while I adore the fact that it can stand up on its own with the casing used as a method to do so, those who like to put multiple brushes into a travel kit will find the length too long to fit into a wrap around travel kit

in love...love it...expensive but so easy to blend with!...I've had this brush for a while now, I purchased it when one of the sephora make up artists tried a foundation (make up forever face & body liquid make up) on me and I loved how it looked, I notice though you have to barely touch your face with this brush because if you use too much pressure the bristles kind of just bend to the side or split in the middle and it looses its shape but over all I think this is a very good brush
