Like others have said, this is truly the perfect size for blush. I have tried many brushes for blush and since every face is different, it's sort of a personal preference. BUT, this brush, after trying many different "blush" brushses, truly is the perfect blush brush. It's soft, picks up pigment, and blends like a dream. It washes and wears well like most elf brushes, especially considering their price point. Would recommend highly, even over other, more expensive brands.
