So I am a “ big fluffy powder brush” person, but when I saw this brush I was intrigued. I had never seen a flat powder brush before, so I ordered it. When it arrived and I put my loose powder on it, I really didn’t know what I expected- but what I didn’t expect was to fall in love with this brush. It makes it so easy for me to apply my setting powder and it is sooo soft. I still use my other powder brushes to buff, but what I like about this one is that I can set my makeup with it and it doesn’t deposit too much powder ( so I don’t have to buff, I still do out of habit and to blend my other powder products). Anyway, great powder brush.
