I have noticed that this is a very soft brush, that is when you use it on the flat surfaces. If you try to apply using the very tips of the brush it actually kind of hurts to be honest. I'm assuming it is due to the way the little hairs are cut. I have no problems during washing and cleaning, it does not shed on me and it maintains the shape very well if you use this trick. dustyohunter has been mentioned before and if you still haven't checked his page out, definitely do so because he has great tips and tricks!
I have also used this as a highlighting brush and it works great! It is efficient at depositing product and it does not leave any product behind. I would hate having to clean off extra product if it clung onto the hairs after each use. Used over a cream base, I had no problems with applying a powder blush on top. It blends everything together so well. I haven't tried this with a cream product alone, I am a little hesitant to just because I don't think it would be sturdy enough. I could be wrong. So, if you are looking for a starter blush brush I would recommend this one. It is great quality, I've had this for about four years now and it still looks brand new (minus the label wearing off). Just make sure to take care of it properly.
