I love this powder brush. Looks and feels like a natural hair brush. It is a paddle shape, has a very nice density, not floppy at all. Does not feel cheap. I use this brush more in my kit than my natural hair powder brush. I have other brands of synthetic brushes but none feel as good as this one. The blush brush feels the same too. I also like the fact that it is dark in color which makes it look more professional as well. If you are looking to substitute your natural hair brushes, these brushes are it.
