Perfect for Contouring Cheeks
I was a little hesitant to purchase this brush after reading the other reviews, but I am SO glad I took the chance. I wanted a brush for contouring my cheeks, and this item is perfect! The shape of the bristles is flat and thin and they are quite firm, so the color is concentrated in the area applied. I wouldn't buy this brush if you're wanting to blend colors ... While I felt that it blended adequately, it is better suited for precision application. As always, the quality of the Elite brushes is exceptional.
Fair - Nothing special
I have tried this for a number of different applications. Seriously searching for a good use for it. I determined that it will be for Halloween make up. I am sure there is a make up artist that will say this is their go to brush, but that isn't me. It is quite literally like using a tempura paint brush from grade school. Maybe... for the contour nuts I see out there that make pretty designers of highlight and contour on their faces before blending would enjoy a "toy" like this. For me, If it had not come in the Elite kit, I would have sent it back. I work to hard for my money and cannot recommend to anyone.
Not what I was looking for
I purchased this hoping to contour and blend with it. Its so much thinner than I expected so I can't really blend with it can only make a strong straight line below my cheekbones n have to blend with another brush.
