This feels like real goat hair to me, so it is more coarse compared to synthetic ones. The nightmare came when I washed it. Like real hair, it became really dry (imagine washing your own hair with hand soap). I wasn’t able to use it after washing it because it was too prickly.
I’m not too sure if they reformulated the colour, but mine isn’t as nude as my friend’s. The one I have is quite pink, like a rosey colour. It doesn’t however apply nice and doesn’t crack when it dries.
