I use this for my powder as I found it is perfect for getting under my eye, in the crease and around my nose. It's very soft, doesn't lose bristles and is comfortable to use - it feels like a really good quality brush. I have had mine for awhile and found it cleans really well, so mine still looks like it's fairly new and still in amazing condition which I think again, speaks volumes about the quality. I feel like it's affordable when comparing similar products and the fact it will last a long time if taken care off. It holds a good amount of product and is so help full for getting the product into those harder areas.
