Another great Hourglass brush...It is soft without any bristly feeling around the delicate eye.

i sat on this brush for a bit and finally purchased it and i'm so glad i did. i didn't know if i was gonna like the shape because its different than what i typically use but it's honestly amazing and i haven't stopped reaching for it since i got it. i have several high end known bronzer brushes and i must say this is definitely worth more hype than its gotten, granted i've mainly heard all good things this brush deserves more....Not my idea of a bronzer brush...The bristles were too dense and scratchy and I found the shape awkward for bronzer.
