Yes, it's pretty small. However, I use it for blush and I think it's perfect for applying colors on the apples of your cheeks. It's big enough so that the color doesn't look drawn on, but not so big that you can't control where you're applying make-up. My old blush brush would shed at least one or two of the brush hairs on my face every time I used it; this has never happened with the Borghese brush. The brush is of very good quality and super soft on my face.
