I bought this as it is a different face brush shape to try. I could tell when I bought it that it would be for sheer blended application. With brushes for a light application, I’m used to brushes that still allow more precision & don’t require quite as much product to apply on the brush. This brush is not made for precision if you’re looking to do anything of a contoured look. This is good for absolutely sheer application of pigmented products. It definitely works as a smaller sheer blush brush, if you’re worried about a blush brush being too big. It is bigger than I’m used to for a highlighter brush, but might work better for bigger (medium-sized) faces for highlight. On my petite frame it did not give me any precision for highlighter application & applied a bigger swatch than I usually do, but it still looked fine, just was definitely different from my usual.
