It's ok...Love it...An amazing brush, even for beginner foundation brush users like me....I removed one star for the fact I am forced to use more foundation with the brush than I normally do, so in turn this won't be used every day, instead only on days when I want more coverage.

Love it...in love...Great beginner brush...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
