This is a beauty brush!!! It FEELS lux in the hand, a PERFECT size, not too small not too big, JUST RIGHT! The handle is comfy-cushy and the bristles are filled with pure soft bristles. I would never spend this price on a brush, but it is part of my daughter's birthday gift and she takes care of her brushes and I have a feeling she will own this IT brush for a VERY long time. It is definitely for loose powders and mineral foundation, but boy oh boy she loves IT!
