it's ok...Not bad!...Stiff fine bristles allow for precise application....I've thin, sparse brows so I need a small tight/stiff brush to apply aqua brow - if the brush is too loose or the hairs are splayed, then it makes a mess, so this brush has been working perfectly.

Love it...My fav!...This one is an interesting shape, but it does still work well to apply my eyeliner and isnt too stiff so it doesnt irritate my eyes....I was using a cheap eyeliner brush before and I didn't think that buying a nicer brush would make much of a difference, but boy was I wrong.

love it...Love it....The silicone posts help the brush to maintain enough stiffness to function....I bought this Shiseido brush because I trust the brand and because it's way more affordable than a Clarisonic (which, as a person who gets facials sometimes and as someone who has friends who use it, I know it's not worth the money).
What it is:
A luxurious cleansing brush designed with silky-soft, finely tapered bristles and silicone cushions to gently massage the skin.

What it does:
This brush heightens the benefits of foaming cleansers while providing gentle facial massage for increased well-being and more thorough cleansing.

Love !...My fav...Also, compared to other liquid eyeliners and pens, the brush has always been long, stiff and durable allowing me to create a precision cat-eye....I use this for my top line and I like to do the cat-eye look but somehow never know how to make both eyes look even but this brush allows me to play around as if I'm painting on a canvas.

:) yay!...Not bad...The brush fibers are SO soft, which I prefer to the stiffness and roughness of some of the animal hair options (especially on the powder brush)....The only brushes that are missing are a good lip brush and a blush brush (the powder brush is great for bronzer), so I just took out the foundation brush and put in my own blush brush and lip brush.

Love It...In Love...It doesn't feel rough on the skin as you're applying your powder....After to Northeast honest I wasn't going to purchase the brush when I bought the setting powder I have so many brushes why buy another on but I have in to all the great reviews and I have to say the brush is pretty good .

wow !!!...Love it!...Nice and stiff but not a rock....I chose the Anastasia 15 brush over the Anastasia 12 brush even though brush 12 got better reviews, because I don't like double ended brushes (can't put them safely in my brush jar).
The optimal slant for precision brow shaping. Quality crafted from pure sable with a multi-lacquered wooden handle.

It's ok....good review...The brush is small and stiff which is fine for a small area like ur nose but if ur an oily girl like myself, doing ur forehead or any larger area with a tiny brush (like dime size) is just annoying and takes way longer....Clever idea, beautiful design and brush itself is soft and nice- however, you can see from picture that brush is intended to be in a shape larger than the casing itself, so when you try to put the lid on the brush you have to hold the brush head with your finger to fit them into the casing.
What it is:
A magnetic, on-the-go blotting powder brush that conveniently attaches to the bottom of its touch-up partner, Invisimatte Blotting Powder, for an instant filter effect.

What it does:

Love !...love it...These are the softest brushes I have owned (i.e. not pokey or rough to the touch)! Definitely buy these if you have bee searching for an inexpensive, quality, incredibly soft set of brushes!...The blender brush is too thick to be e blender brush, the all over brush is just weird shaped, the contour brush is "ok" and the liner brush can't really be used as a liner per say but I would say that is is "ok" for more detailed applications.

Love it!!...Loving it...That isn't to say these are rock-hard stiff bristles....The "powder" brush doesn't cover a lot of surface area and is better for blush or bronzer, the "blush" brush will give you a streak that needs some blending (better for highlighter), and be careful with the eye brushes because they can kind of hurt!

Love !...In love...I actually enjoy using this brush because it is stiff and very thin for precise brush strokes and natural hairs but I don't give this 5 stars because I feel like I have to be super precise with this brush....So I really love the brush and how it applies the pomade but I was sad that it did not have the like mascara end to brush it out and blend but over all a really great brush
